Lift Your Sole

Continual seekers of opportunities to offer inspiration to others, the women at Lift Your Sole, are blazing the trail with their beautiful creativeness. They are constantly looking for ways to empower others and it's reflected in all they do. Using your inferring skills, you can understand their name invites one to, that's right, go ahead and lift up those soles of yours. Whether taking your first step, walking, riding a century ride, running a marathon, or doing downward facing dog in yoga, it's about moving to improve your life and empower yourself. On the other hand, Lift Your Sole invites you to lift your sole soul through focusing on the beautiful around you (and they design and hand craft some of that beautiful).

We'll leave the exploration of their website to you, as you will probably stumble across something perfectly fitting to bring a smile to your own face or another loved one's face. But, it's important to understand they're so much more than the jewelery and apparel they create (though they do purchase fair trade and hand craft many of their goodies). For example, on their facebook page this past week they shared the following messages:
  • "Don't give up. The beginning is always the hardest."
  • "Never sacrifice who you are because someone has a problem with it."
  • "A bend in the road, is not the end of the road...unless you fail to make the turn."
  • "Suspend your worrying, take a deep breath, shut down your mind...hug yourself. You did the best you could today and that is good enough! Rest well, tomorrow we have all day to be imperfect again."
 When we met Jill, Jennie, and Aubree from Lift Your Sole it felt like we were reuniting with good friends. The coffee was delicious, the conversation was enlightening, and the drive home left us inspired. Their workshop, nestled on the main street of the charming town of Buford, Georgia, still reflects horse drawn carriage tracks on the hardwood floors. The setting invites you to slow down and the ambiance set by Lift Your Soles jewelery, accessories, and workroom leave you smiling.

We can't say it any better than they do because quite simply, they hope you "do what moves you." That is just the ticket to leave you seeing beautiful. And thus, a friendship was born and we are forever grateful for the ways they empower others and inspire us.

P.S. They're designing exquisite handcrafted See Beautiful necklaces to be unveiled in 2012. We are honored to work with such a thoughtful bunch!

  1. Lift Your Sole sounds wonderful! What a neat idea it is to inspire people to lift their soles while simultaneously inspiring them by lifting their souls. Clever ladies! And P.S., how exciting that they're designing SB necklaces?!?! Sounds like SB and LYS are a match made in heaven :-)


Thank you for sharing your thoughts & helping others see beautiful too!
