Q: Let’s get to it, what’s your business’ specialty?
A: Hi, my name is Amy, and I am the creator and owner of Intentional Mantra. I am passionate about creating a more decisive shift between who we are and what we want to become! As humans, we deserve to see the FIRE within our soul; we deserve to ignore the negative influences and RISE to our most potential and create your Intentional Mantra.
The vision behind this concept is to empower women, children, and men in helping create your Mantra. This journey starts with finding your word, intentionally reading your affirmation cards, and creating a space where you can embrace the positive shift and wearing your Intentional Mantra Jewelry. I am passionate about creating a more decisive shift between who we are and what we want to become! Your story is worth hearing. What’s your Mantra?
Q: Where can we find you?
A: You can find me on our website, Facebook @IntentionalMantra, and Instagram @Intentional_Mantra
Q: Tell us when and how your business began.
A: Intentional Mantra has subconsciously been a part of me my entire life. Intentional Mantra has been a part of my journey using healing stones for grounding and protection, using words of affirmation to rebuild my confidence and understand exactly who I was, and then most of all, allowing myself to feel comfortable with who I was within my soul and not being ashamed of any part of my existence. I genuinely believe that we are the creators of our intention, and we can turn that intention into a daily Mantra, and it is my love and passion to design jewelry and embrace those who may not see themselves the way I see them and by giving them the tools to start their path of intention and self-discovery.
Q: What makes your company unique from others?
A: Intentional Mantra is unique because the design style is classic, elegant, and timeless with a beautiful meaning. I love the creative beauty that fashion can give you, and I love putting pieces together that are unique and personal. I love the look of them, and I love how my clients feel when they wear them. Feeling beautiful within your skin is something we all deserve to feel every day. So, I take that energy and passion into my jewelry. Every piece of jewelry from Intentional Mantra has a special meaning and message attached to the stone. I am obsessed with the quality concept that meets beauty, which is my intention in every piece that I design. I incorporate stylish lines and trends, but ultimately, I make jewelry that I am proud of and I love at the end of the day. When you wear Intentional Mantra, you will feel it too.
Each piece of my jewelry I spend enormously on the quality I purchased through people I trust, my stones are genuine, and my materials are all made with quality. I also wanted to have a line where the everyday man, woman, and child could embrace. You can wear these pieces on your wedding day as the bride, groom, bridal party, family of the couple or even a guest, you are able to wear any piece anywhere and feel confident with a beautiful meaning and message. I wanted to make pieces that they could also wear with confidence with a reminder of their worth and making that into their daily Mantra. My daughter inspired my child’s line, and she is a remarkable child with the empathy gift. Creating a beautiful line for children was extremely important to me, so she has a hand in the design and what stones kids will most relate to and feel proud to wear. I genuinely am passionate about allowing people to feel incredible, safe, and secure with precisely who they are meant to be. These are beautiful pieces that can contribute to that journey.
Q: How long have you been in the industry? What do you think has changed the most since then?
A: I’ve been in the guiding field for 20 years, and creating ways to impact, connect ourselves has been at the forefront of my passion. I believe the most change that I have seen is the significance of self-worth. Sometimes we rely on material things or other people to fill our cup with love and light. But ultimately, the secret is self-worth, love, and understanding that you’ve had the power the entire time. Embracing self-love is the magical key to love. I am creating a world where we can love ourselves wholly to love each other naturally and genuinely. I’ve always encouraged my clients and everyone I’ve worked with to take five minutes a day, reflecting on what you’re grateful for, positive affirmations of self-worth, and setting a personal goal. Allowing these five minutes for yourself can help guide you to your goals and dreams. Intentional Mantra is just part of that journey to start you on a life path. You can get through the hard days and embrace the beautiful days. Life is a gift, and being able to share that with your soulmate is a lovely thing, so embrace the balances but remember to love yourself first because then you’re able to love others genuinely.
Q: What would you want couples searching for wedding jewelry to know?
A: When you’re searching for your wedding jewelry, know that you can make the experience special. I want you to know this is your time to reinforce and collaborate with your partner to customize your jewelry even if you are looking for traditional or non-traditional jewelry; understand that this is your personalized journey together as a couple. Intentional Mantra truly believes in jewelry that has meaning; it has a connection to the soul, connecting everyone. The design style behind it is impactful and deliberate to help you, your partner, your wedding party, and all your guests know that they are there to share the space for your important day. Wearing jewelry that represents love and protection, and stability is a beautiful way to start your journey.
Love is a beautiful thing. Marriage is the representation to show your love to the people you trust in your life. Some souls wait their entire life to find a love like yours, and some have been dreaming about this day their whole life. But no matter what you pick, no matter what you decide, this day was intentionally made for you both. When you have the opportunity to look your soulmate right in the eyes, and knowing this is exactly where you’re supposed to be, everything else is the backdrop to your beautiful photo of your next chapter in your life. Just embrace it, and embrace the happiness and safety love brings to your soul.
Q: How far in advance should a couple purchase their wedding rings?
A: Time is just a representation of every day you get to spend with your partner. When you pick out your wedding rings, allow time to guide you, I wouldn’t put it as procrastination, and I wouldn’t put it as an impulse. Just let the experience guide which ring you feel represents your level of love with your partner. Intentional Mantra incorporates meaning and allows you to fall in love with both the intention, beauty, and connection. So give yourself the time to embrace the phases of picking out the wedding rings, from representing who you are as a couple, knowing this is a proud moment for both of you, and giving yourself enough time, so you don’t feel rushed in the process.
Q: What’s your favorite wedding jewelry trend lately?
A: “I loved you already with a purpose.” I think pearls are just the classic beauty that embraces the past, present, and future into a very modern style or even a very traditional style. I think a pearl is a beautiful representation of love. I also love opals; they are an incredible stone that represents so much love and protection. You could even incorporate both a pearl and an opal with a beautiful necklace or earrings.
Q: What’s your best piece of advice for someone looking to purchase an engagement ring for their partner?
A: There are so many people we meet throughout our life. When certain people enter our lives, we don’t know how long our bond will last; yet, we allow the experience to happen and embrace our lives. As we know, some help us through valuable lessons, and some will be a valuable lesson. Then there are the special people that when they enter you immediately embrace and trust the process of your energy together, even knowing the risks, you know it’s unique. That’s love. When purchasing your rings and knowing this is your soulmate, the ring you pick out will represent your love for each other. My best advice when purchasing an engagement ring is to incorporate meaning into your rings. You will always know that even on your hard days and your best days, that meaning will always be there. That meaning will be on your finger every day to remind you of your love for each other. Taking the time to make it memorable for both of you will be a message that you can reflect on throughout your entire marriage.
Q: Do you have any favorite podcasts or books?
A: I would like a few more to be on this list, and I love a touching documentary but my favorite podcasts are Brene Brown Unlocking, Super Soul, Gary Vee, Terrible thank you for asking, Master Class, and Progressive Spirit.
Q: Who’s your most played artist on your streaming service?
A: I absolutely love acoustic music, so you can put a pop, rap, blues, classical, country and make it in an acoustic version, I am all ears!
Q: Heels or flats?
A: I am known for my shoe collection and I love a sexy pump! I feel like walking in a pump allows your inner Wonder Woman to shine. YAS Queen!
Q: Mountains or Beach?
A: I am connected to water; I love the feel the ocean gives me and the ocean speaks to me in a very spiritual way. So, I appreciate them both in many beautiful ways, yet the beach is my soul’s love language.
Q: Go-to cocktail (or mocktail)?
A: I love a great glass of wine while I cook or connect with friends.
Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: When I was young I wanted to help children, and I am honored to be someone my eight-year-old self would be proud of.
Q: You’re at brunch. Are you going for something sweet or savory?
A: Savory, baby! Brunch is an incredible time to try a combination of both and embrace new foods. So good!
Q: Go-to comfort food?
A: I love tacos! I feel like I could eat tacos on a regular basis and be the happiest gal alive!
