The name Baaliyan means "Earrings" in Hindi and was chosen a few years ago when I first started creating my handmade earrings. I was thrilled to discover that the name itself carried a heartfelt message behind it's true meaning. Just like we all experience our own personal journeys with some seeking a deeper meaning in life, some seeking emotional balance, and some a deeper connection with the outside world, so does Baaliyan.
The meaning behind the word Baaliyan is defined as someone who seeks to attain spiritual enlightenment, with their strengths strongly related to intuition and introspection.
We live in a fast paced world where it has become extremely challenging to keep up with seasonal trends, lifestyle adaptations and maintaining a positive work/life balance. They say that in order to achieve balance in one's life, you must find and become a part of a larger purpose than oneself. Your contribution to the world, no matter how small or big it may be could make the world of a difference to everyone involved. It is therefore important, according to the meaning of Baaliyan, to find your purpose in life so you can begin to create and share your talents.
I found my purpose slightly later in life with something that sparked what I like to call my "innner flame", by creating and sharing handmade earrings. The artist with me found a way to create and express myself through the way I see the world and therefore connecting with the outside world on a conscious level.
I look forward to sharing my handmade creations with you all and hope you enjoy the journey which Baaliyan will guide us all on.
