Meet James Boyd, designer of the Daisy Chakra bracelet


James Boyd Hi, I'm James Boyd, the creator of the Daisy Chakra bracelet.

The Chakra collection was inspired by my introduction to yoga following two years of pain and discomfort with a chronic stomach condition. The chakras and their system of energy flow are a fundamental part of yoga and were instrumental in bringing balance, wellness and health back in my life.

The motifs in the collection are the Hindu symbols most commonly associated with the chakras and as a jewellery designer I have modified them as little as possible but sufficiently so that they could be worn by people to aid them in their journey through life.

The collection of bracelets follows the seven chakras and the seven colours of the rainbow; each chakra has key characteristics, attributes and emotions associated with it. The Chakra Bracelets do not profess to affect the wearer's spiritual or physical wellbeing. Rather let your Daisy Chakra act as a reminder to you of the higher plane on which you aspire to lead your life, as you explore this ancient Eastern philosophy.
