Windswept


Although this is the Canadian Gift Guide, one of the things I pride myself on is finding buying ideas from around the globe to add some international flair to your gift-giving. After all, one of the tenets of this blog is simply that is has to be readily available to Canadians. With that in mind, today’s gift pick comes all the way from Latvia. The lovely Sigita of 3 Wind Knots reached out to me with the hopes of sharing this beautiful line of jewelry with you all – and after a quick perusal, I quickly signed on. Below, check out my five favourite pieces from the brand!

3 winds Flower Whisper

Whispers of Flowers Collection – $50 (note: all prices are approximate CDN$ conversions)
Most ladies out there have a favourite flower – this beautiful collection gives meaning to her favourite bloom with customized messaging on the outside of each metal canister your custom piece comes in. Choose your leather and the actual silver medallion to adorn your necklace / bracelet, and wear it as you will. Makes a beautiful Mother’s Day present alongside a dozen of her favourite flowers.

3 Winds I Ask Bracelets

I Ask Bracelets – $42
Sure these bracelets make look bright and cheerful, but rest assured – they’re a little more hardworking than your average gem. Much like the tradition of wearing a Hamsa to ward off evil, these bracelets represent wish fulfillment. Every charm features symbols representing your deepest inner desires – like protection & prosperity, or harmony, balance, and love. If you love them as much as I do, ask and ye shall (hopefully) receive. I like this one as a 21st century twist on the friendship bracelet for your sister or very best girlfriend!

3 Winds Jewels of Sun

Jewel of Sun Collection – $29+
If you believe the jewels your bedazzle yourself with actually possess powers of sorts, then consider amber one of the queens of well-being. This natural stone harnesses the sun’s purifying and rejuvenating powers to help focus your mind, make you accepting of change, and allow you to make decisions with ease. The Jewel of Sun collection features amber beads on leather or chain necklaces or bracelets, along with your choice of a custom pendant from one of the other collections. Layer them for an eye-catching, earth mama look – gift one to each of your bridesmaids as a gift they’ll treasure.

3 Winds Alphabet Jewel

Alphabet Jewel – $42
While this isn’t the first monogram necklace I’ve featured on the blog, I will say that one of the things I most appreciate about the 3 Wind Knots collection is all the fine details, like the sweet rustic packaging and poetic message about how beautiful and special and ingrained in our character our names are. This simple pendant can be engraved with one or more letters, and like the rest of the brand’s line, is made from classic silver. Consider purchasing one for a new mom to commemorate the arrival of her little ‘B’, ‘P’ or ‘S’.

3 Winds One

ONE Collection – $29+
I should probably quickly debrief you on what the 3 Wind Knots name means. Apparently it’s derived from a famous folk tale about an apprentice who receives a rope with 3 knots in it. Untying the first one would cause fair weather, untying the second would result in a storm, and untying the third one would calm the seas. With the magic rope in hand, the hero was able to defeat evil and marry a Princess. That probably explains why so many of the 3 Wind Knot collection features a sort of rustic vibe with leather cords and fabric twisted and tied into knots. The ONE collection is probably the most diverse – and the titular one in this instance refers to wearing a piece that represents your one true desire and wish above all else. I’m digging the 3 Signs sub-line as a nod to the brand’s own relationship with the number 3.

You’ll notice that I linked back to the 3 Wind Knots site for all of the above pieces. Beyond purchasing from the 3 Wind Knots site directly, you can also peruse their Etsy store, or buy from Cargoh. And if you love the delicate decadence of 3 Wind Knots as much as me, you may very well be in luck. One reader is going to have her choice of her two favourite pieces from the line!
