According to SonomaBirding; “Nightingales are symbolic of beauty and melody. Being nocturnal, they’re also symbolic of darkness and mysticism. To dream of these birds is often symbolic of joy and hope but can also have a negative interpretation at times.” What a gorgeous idea for a Valentine’s day necklace. This ethically made, woman-owned company made one is perfect alone, or layered.

Capture poses via Zoom or send in photo(s) as innocent or racy as you’d like, along with a quote, a few sentences, or a paragraph of backstory about what this portrait marks in your life—what are you celebrating, grieving, noting, calling into being, letting go of? These very personal, custom drawings reflect an essence—not necessarily a literal portrait of the subject, but an emotional quality and nature. Hang it on your wall, in your boudoir, or place it at an altar as a reminder of your intentions. Buy it as a gift for yourself (worship your own bod!) or your lover.
