Larimar is a stone found exclusively in the Dominican Republic side of Ayiti. In the southern caves this stone reminds us of the ocean representing it in all of its forms. The foam produced by the waves, the deep blue of deepness and the point on the horizon where the sky and ocean seem to become one.
When I envisioned this offering back in October of 2021 I imagined each piece holding the symbol for birds. I assumed it was because of many reasons. I didn`t get clarity until summer solstice of 2022. My archeological adviser Domingo Abreu is the leading specialist on Taino caves in the Dominican Republic. He and I communicate often about the dilution of our identity and new age intrusion into our spirituality.
Introducing the Pajaro Engraved Larimar, a unique and innovative product from Ojala Threads. Back in 2020, Domingo was able to identify the marker of winter solstice in Las Cuevas de Pomier, our ancestral home. This inspired the design of the Pajaro Engraved Larimar, a beautiful piece of jewelry that celebrates our culture and heritage.
The Pajaro design is wonderful and the conversation we had was amazing. Thank you! ❤️
