1. What is the most meaningful object you wear?
My very first juju jangle is the most meaningful object I wear… there are seven charms, a gold coin purchased in India, a brass heart milagro, a brass knee milagro, an evil eye from Turkey, a gold Ganesh, a rose gold / diamond OM and a gold juju ring. I will not travel anywhere without it.
2. Why do you wear it?
Each piece has personal significance and marks milestones in my life – situations filled with exuberance and wonder along with those more challenging to handle. My jangle offers protection and a reminder that all things are possible.
3. What does the saying "good juju" mean to you?
Good juju is something you pass on the another person… it is a modern day blessing or offering to someone you care about. It can be as simple as offering someone a hug along with just the words ‘good juju’ or it can take the form of a token, talisman, or charm for continual support or protection.
4. Who is your Juju hero?
My juju hero is my mother. She was charismatic and quirky, a gamer, a giver and not a taker, an original DIY gal, the life of the party, a brownie leader, a girl scout leader, a homeroom mother, a car pooler, always at the ready, an original. But most importantly she created the do-gooder thread that has passed from her to me, to my daughter, and to her children.
5. What is your motto?
"Go for it.” Life is not a dress rehearsal. As I have gotten older, I have given up being hesitant in favor of just going for it. If not now, when?
