Surfers are naturally expressive people and fashion is undoubtedly an extension of their creativity. Tara Wolf Jewelry in Australia seeks to embody the style of each person by offering a wide range of unique pieces from various brands to fit any wardrobe. Tara Wolfâ€™s most notable collection is its exclusive line of Chakra and Zodiac inspired jewelry, a favorite among female surfers.
Endorsed by No. 2 surfer Sally Fitzgibbons (AUS), the Tara Wolf Chakra and Zodiac jewelry is a simple, yet elegant bracelet collection that embodies the consciousness of the ancient Indian Chakra system and the wisdom of the Zodiac signs.
Tara Wolf Director Chris Barry said she decided to create the collection when she recognized people were moving toward a more grounded approach to living. The world is focused on health and wellbeing more than ever, and surfers are at the forefront of that movement.
â€œOur goal is to offer a jewelry collection that reflects the lifestyle choices of the wearer,â€ Barry said. â€œToday, more than ever, we’re focused on our own wellbeing and more conscious of the choices we make in our lives. The Tara Wolf Chakra collection provides a daily reminder of the balance we seek in our daily lives.â€
Coming from a family of avid surfers, Barry secured Sally Fitzgibbons as the brandâ€™s ambassador earlier this year when the line was established.
â€œWe’re very proud of Sally and her surfing achievements,â€ Barry said. â€œShe is currently the worldâ€™s No. 2 female surfer. We think Sally embodies the healthy, grounded, life-loving spirit that is typical of Tara Wolf customers. These people appreciate each day, and embrace life’s opportunities. In many ways, that’s the message conveyed in each of our braceletsâ€”think abut the opportunities you have in your life and go for them.â€
Sally Fitzgibbons said the meaning of each bracelet and what they represent are what makes the collection so appealing.
â€œNormally you put jewelry on because you like the look of it, which is still the case with the Tara Wolf range of Chakras, but what makes them special is that each piece has a meaning,â€ Fitzgibbons said. â€œSo the activities I have on during the day or night determine what pieces I select to wear.â€
Fitzgibbons said if she were going out to dinner or a party with friends, she would wear the â€œSolar Plexus Chakraâ€ and â€œCrown Chakraâ€ bracelets because they represent beauty, self-esteem, wisdom and inspiration.
â€œNot only is it fun, but there is a spiritual connection,â€ she said.
But what are Chakras? Many people have different opinions on what it means, but Barry said the word “chakra” is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel,” but perhaps even a better translation would be â€œspinning wheel.â€ The Chakra system originated in India and is linked to ancient Yoga masters. Chakras are energy centers in the body, of which our consciousness, our energy system, is composed. There are seven major chakras located along the spine from the base to the crown of the head. Chakras are not physical, but rather aspects of our consciousness. They function as valves directing the flow of energy through our system. Each energy center represents an emotion or psychological state, such as power, love and imagination. Each state is linked to a color and has a special attribute that helps the body use energy most effectively. They all have a distinct purpose in the body.
Fitzgibbons said many chakras apply to competitive surfing, such as self-confidence, stability, health, courage, patience, individuality, success, survival, self-sufficiency, spontaneity and confidence.
â€œWhile it is difficult at times to focus on everything, the Tara Wolf Chakras are a great reminder and help bring the balance,â€ she said.
Though there are no American retailers, the Tara Wolf website offers online shopping and international shipping. Each bracelet is handcrafted with a rich, natural German silk toggle cord and a sterling silver or 24k gold Vermeil plate modeling your chosen Chakra or Zodiac symbol.
