Melanie and Farah share an infinite Love for the splendors of our magnificent omniverse. We feel deeply. We live fully. Our shared passion of artistic expression and love of humanity has galvanized our friendship throughout the years, and inevitably led us to creating the Barakat // Blessings collaboration.
In August of 2021, the world watched as Afghanistan's infrastructure collapsed, and power was given to the taliban radicals. Being that Farah's ancestral lineage hails from Afghanistan, her call to action sprung forward and she stepped into service for her Afghan people. We had discussed creating this pendant a year prior to the takeover and now we had a redefined purpose for our collaborative mission. Melanie took the steps and got the piece into production, using Farah's special mirrored Arabic calligraphy drawing.
What you see is a co-creative symbol of our blessing and offering, infused with Reiki, so that all may live their blessed life in peace.
