Why I made Solid Titanium Fortitude Necklace
One year after I was born, I was left to stay with my grandparents while my parents needed to struggle for life in another city. I could only see them once a year during the holidays. My mom gave me a necklace with a jade pendent when I was five, an age when kids started to know more about the world. The jade necklace was small and simple, but it meant the whole world to me. It had witnessed all my happiness, tears, struggle, weakness, fortitude and the TRUE side of me in the following years.
However, one day when I was a sophomore in high school I carelessly dropped it from my hands and it was broken into pieces. I was suddenly lost. I remembered that jade necklace when reminiscing the bright and confident self with a strong heart. I really wanted to buy one that can last forever just to have for myself. But I couldn't find a durable, strong and affordable but simple jewel anywhere, so I determined to make one.
I researched all of the main materials for making jewelries. Precious metals are pretty expensive and unaffordable for most people. Jade is easy to break. Regular metals are either allergic or corrode. After few weeks of research, I finally found the material I was looking for: Titanium, the strongest element and completely bio-compatible.
In the following month, I read more about Titanium jewelry, visited manufacturers, and worked with manufacturers to solve all the challenges and focused on the concept of the necklace I want to make: Resolve to have more fortitude with the Necklace made of the strongest element in world!
When the prototype was shipped to my office, my colleagues were immediately drawn to it. Everybody wanted to try it on. Here are what they said when they tried the necklace:
"The design is so unique and distinctive. In some way, it's so straightforward and simple. I like the way it reflects solid lights from many different angles." -- Ken
"The solid Titanium necklace is so light, but with a solid feeling. It's so amazing! I can feel the strength it delivers to me!" -- Joe
Now, I'm wearing it everyday. We all have struggles in life, but this necklace represents my inner strength to overcome them. I believe it will help you to have more fortitude too.
What is it about Titanium? Maybe it's the clean and straightforward color? Maybe it's the strongest element? Maybe we have some other connection to it? I'm not sure, I just know it's the thing people want to wear and touch the most.
