Autumn Soul Jewelry with Allison Craig
Excerpt from page 148-149 of Our Story Magazine: Autumn 2022.
As with so many things in life, Autumn Soul Jewelry blossomed from a challenge. As a child, Allison was diagnosed with migraines. While they have improved over the years, she is constantly reminded that too much screen time is a trigger for headaches. While Allison loves creating offerings such as Artful Reflections Journals, Letters for the Soul, and The Artful Soul Retreat, the reality is that these creations require many hours of screen time. She slowly came to the realization that she needed to diversify Autumn Soul offerings.
As she pondered this, Allison reflected back to her teenage years when she spent many hours making jewelry for friends and family. How could she tie in a jewelry offering to the Autumn Soul mission statement: “To provide peaceful and encouraging products that inspire appreciation of the beauty surrounding us in our everyday lives?”
She immediately thought back to the roots of Autumn Soul, which was sharing photography and encouraging thoughts on Instagram. Then it came to her—each Autumn Soul Jewelry purchase would include a special pouch with an encouraging photography quote card.
Autumn Soul Jewelry offers a variety of textures, materials, and styles. Inspiration comes from botanicals, treasured places, slowing down, and vintage style.
You can often find Wilson, her fluffy four-legged companion, laying at her feet while she is embroidering, assembling, and packaging your Autumn Soul Jewelry orders!
