“There is nothing more beautiful than a gift of protection.
A personal charm, with a special meaning.”
Travelling has always been a part of my life.
At eighteen years old, I became a flight attendant, and spent my university years
discovering new places.
As a director and business partner of an international jewellery brand, for almost ten years,
I am charmed by jewels. I love how dear they become over a time, with
significant memories attached to them.
I’ve always wished to bring a gift with meaning from my travels, a talisman for my loved ones
and to have one myself, for protection on my adventures. But I couldn’t find one.
In 2016 I moved from Slovakia to Portugal. When I arrived to Lisbon,
a statue in front of the airport building caught my attention. It was the figure of a man
holding a child in one hand and a staff in the other. Below was the inscription ‘Sao Christovao’.
Later that day I discovered that it was St. Christopher, the protector of travellers.
Intrigued, I read beautiful stories about St. Christopher. To me, he is a protector of all people,
as we all travel these days, whether to work or just for pleasure, everyday or occasionally.
The idea of jewellery for protection began to form in my imagination.
I pictured it being very colourful and unique, affordable to everybody.
Something you can easily buy for family, friends or yourself.
Blest was created in March 2016. With beautiful intentions to charm
and give a blessing of protection to those we care about. It is a good luck offering for all.
Loved ones, travellers, those enjoying sports, dreamers and adventurers. Differently coloured
medallions are named after places and cities that touched my heart.
I feel blessed, that I could create a wonderful charm for everyone’s protection.
Whether you are enjoying waves or holidays, the city lifestyle or adventures following the sunshine.
My heart is glowing, knowing that my man has the Blest. necklace with him
while travelling or surfing and my son wears his talisman for protection as a beautiful bracelet.
My parents, who are far away from me, keep it in their car. My brothers have their medallions
on a keyring as a favoured gift. And my grandparents carry their Blest. coin in their wallet.
I hope that Blest. will become a dearest talisman to all loved ones.
