message from the maker: "These handcrafted pieces of jewelry are created with the intent to remind you to take your Retreat (hence the name). This Retreat isn’t a physical vacation, a neglect of your responsibilities, or a career change. Instead, this is the time necessary to get back to you, a car-ride with the windows down just because, a good book with a candle burning, buying a journal to write your dreams in or taking on a new hobby. We’re talking about the small moments that make a big difference. The moments that are so easy to bypass or miss entirely if we are too distracted to prioritize them. This is a Retreat and the reason why I create!"
