Our jewelry line started as a DIY gift idea for our teenage nieces while experimenting with laser cutters in 2016. Over the years we have gained so many followers that are excited to talk with us about our latest travels and designs. They already know our jewelry is inspired by the nature and architecture we have experienced as a couple in our many adventurous travels. Our travels inspired them too!
That was an unexpected part of this journey for my wife an I! True appreciation and excitement about our life's travels and our humble designs from so many people! People that became friends if they weren’t already. People that we would run into wearing them all over the place, that would share stories with us, always smiling, always proud to be wearing our earrings.
That filled us with gratitude, and we felt so blessed!
Now more than ever I am overwhelmed by how much that meant to my wife, how proud it made her, and what it did for us as a couple.
There is a much deeper part of our story that we have kept private from the social networks and farmers markets and it is my very heavy duty to share with all of our gravitate2 friends and fans.
My wife, Alana Ingersoll, was battling one of the toughest forms of triple negative breast cancer, since June of 2016, & she passed away on October 31, 2019. She fought it back with such strength and valor that so many people had no idea she had cancer, or if they did, they didn’t realize how serious it was. She always looked beautiful and was full of energy, so it was impossible to just know by looking at her. All of us are still in shock at how quickly things did turn as she went from not feeling great to passing in just a few weeks time. While I know we all will be mourning her loss for a long time, be sure to celebrate her by being inspired to live with an adventurous zest for life like she did every day, despite what else you are going through.
As her husband I am so grateful for the 12 years we had together. While our lives did have many extreme challenges, we had way more extreme blessings! I loved her with all of my heart and soul! Our years were full of more adventures than most couples have in a 30 year time frame. (Hand gliding, skiing, fly fishing, scuba diving, backpacking, mountain biking, motorcycling, & surfing, to name a few favorites) When I look back at all the pictures and videos of our lives together, I see an amazing woman that I shared a remarkable life with, looking back at me with extreme love. I am truly blessed to have ever had that kind of partner and I am twice the man I ever was before I met Alana Ingersoll, my soul mate, my best friend, my adventure partner, my movie star.
Please help me continue her legacy by sharing our story and our website with all your friends!
All of our products are designed and made in the USA - Gravitate2.US!
