Springtime summons our wandering selves
Restored by good rest and nurtured by hope and care
we, like trailing vines or sweetpeas, extend our tendrils outward —
Everreaching towards the light,
Towards something worth entangling —
Towards our soon-to-be-known joys
We wend our way (winsomely)
Towards our best and brightest lives
Grow Well, Darlings
We see you — and gather all the beauty you can.
This Mother’s Day, show the one who told you
And noticing them matter.
How the act of paying attention
Can be a gift
than most things.
with care about who, or what, receives it
Is a kind of everything that matters…
& her particular details (in this case, her initials)
And warrant generations worth
Mamas, like heirlooms, Become.
A life is made of moments and stories,
A name is made of letters and meaning,
A monogram is made of initials
The first letter of each part of
One Particular Name
(a record of beginnings, of becoming)

Waxing Poetic is a company founded by women and inspired by women, and we’re always on board for International Women’s Day, and to celebrate who we are in the balance equation.
In our business, it is an absolute honor to employ and and collaborate with women the world over, especially our beautiful Balinese cohorts, with whom we have been working for almost 20 years.
Head over to our Story today to meet some of these soul-sisters and heroines who balance motherhood, artistry, and a dedication to their communities. They join us on the daily in bringing Waxing Poetic pieces to life in a way no one else ever could.
Everyone benefits from gender balance — (not just our girls) and we are HERE. FOR. ALL. OF. IT.

Balance is a beautiful thing.
We love to design. We love the unique, the intentional, the rare.
Introducing our new Signature Series.
Patti dreams up something special, and we hand craft it in a limited quantity, delivering to you something we hope will be treasured and valued. For Keeps. For Joy!

“We have been fans of the hummingbird for some time, and chose this magical bird as the first in our Signature Series because it is one of the most beloved and enduring representations of a free and beautiful, yet purposeful (read: Poetic) existence. The hummingbird reminds us that the sweetest nectar lies within, and that the journey to discovering this self, this energy and knowing, and healing can and should be made with grace and ease.
The dream we dare to have is just this: to be present, alive, and conscious in every moment, like this little bird. To embrace the new beginnings that are the promise of each new day, and to live them fully. ”
The New Year of 2019 is upon is, and I have been internally noting many things that I wish to let go of, and equally many things that I’d like to bring into and cultivate in my own life.
The problem is: I tend to not keep my resolutions, not because I don’t want to, say, “get organized” in the New Year (or “spend more time with my family,” or “travel more,” or “eat better,” etc. etc.) but because I simply get swept up in living.
So, to help keep myself on track, I thought that I’d start a new tradition this year and let some of my favorite Waxing Poetic designs inspire my 7 New Year’s resolutions (because 7 is my lucky number) – this way, I can wear them all year long, and be reminded of the commitment I have made to myself.
7 Poetic New Year Resolutions for 2019 + Sneak Peek
I hope my resolutions, in turn, might create a spark for crafting your own resolutions.
We can use our Waxing Poetic pieces as reminders of who we already are (because we made the resolution), and who we might become (because we will put this into practice every time we wear the piece).
Please share with us your Poetic Resolutions, and help us keep each other on track and bring more poetry to life in 2019.
Love to all in the New Year ahead,
