Artifact 08: The Phoenix Charm
✪ Limited Edition.
驚異 The Phoenix. Inspired by the writing of Japanese author Haruki Murakami.
“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you.
So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.
And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.
And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.”

Please see FAQ for Care Instructions.
We use a combination of natural diamonds, precious gemstones and solid gold. They are durable and can be worn all day and in the shower, unless they contain an opal. Opals are a porous stone that can absorb water and become transparent. We recommend to keep all opal pieces away from water.
Please be careful when doing physical activity to avoid any scratches to the piece or damage to the stones. Solid gold does not tarnish and all of our alloys are made in house with hypoallergenic clean materials.
To keep your gemstones and ring sparkling; once or twice a month, place your ring in warm water with a bit of dish detergent and let soak for a 10 minutes. Gently brush with a baby tooth brush around and underneath the stone setting. Rinse in warm water and dab dry with a soft cloth. This will keep it always looking new.
If you insist to wear your ring in the shower please note the diamonds or gemstones might become foggy due to oil in body care products and soap build up. This can be cleaned with the instructions listed above.
