Fine Jewelry and Artful Objects to Uplift and Inspire

7-8 August, 5-9pm

JOY Yoga Dalston • 27D Dalston Lane • London E8 3DF

A master craftsman Jot Singh Khalsa brings to JOY a selection of jewelry and kirpans designed to uplift and inspire. Beautiful as well as practical, these pieces can support you on the spiritual path, serving as visual reminders of your innate grace, strength, and divinity.

Many of Jot Singh's pieces feature the Adi Shakti, a symbol of infinity that relates to the primal creative power. (See below for more about the Adi Shakti). Jot Singh also designs and crafts sacred knives and artisan kirpans, reminders to cut through life challenges and achieve excellence. A sacred symbol for those of the Sikh faith, kirpan means hand of mercy. It's not a symbol of aggression but rather of defending the defenseless. 

Join us at JOY's Dalston studio 7-8 August for a special opportunity to see and buy Jot Singh's beautiful jewelry and kirpans.

 

About the Adi Shakti

The Adi Shakti is a symbol of infinity.
It relates to primal creative power and has three parts to its design:

The Chakra is a circle, also a symbol of infinity and reminder that God’s infinite nature, has no beginning or end. To the extent one understands the creation as a reflection of the Creator, a circle can be seen to reflect the oneness and unity of mankind in essence, regardless of apparent differences of race, religion or gender.

The Khanda is the double-edged central dagger, representing the straight and narrow path of righteousness, the razor’s edge that cuts both ways – in that what you do to others you are actually doing to your Self. In yogic terms, the khanda represents neutral mind – the ability to make non-reactive decisions.

The two Kirpans are curved single-edged knives on both sides of the symbol and represent the polarities that need to be balanced by neutrality: temporal and spiritual, negative and positive, etc. In yogic terms, these two kirpans represent the negative and positive minds. Guru Hargobind (one of the founders of Sikhism) wore two swords, signifying Miri – political or temporal power, and Piri – spiritual sovereignty.

As a creator of uplifting spiritual jewelry, we have focused on Shakti jewelry (personal empowerment jewelry) to meet the needs of a growing number of spiritually minded people who resonate with the concept of Adi Shakti.

Jot Singh's story...

For 6 years, beginning in 1972, I trained intensively in art and jewelry making at the State University of New York at New Paltz where I learned to create silver and gold jewelry and artful objects. During those years, and with the 4 decades of experience as an artisan since, I’ve gained skills and discrimination in the areas of design, precious metal and gemstone fabrication, casting and manufacturing. CAD (computer-aided design), a relatively new field is a technology we are utilizing regularly.

Early in my career as an artisan and full time knife and swordmaker, my teacher for over 30 years, Yogi Bhajan, encouraged that I use my artistic gifts to create things that uplift and inspire people. This selection of jewelry and objects is the fruit of my earnest effort to do just that, and to offer them to you and your loved ones through this website. In my travels, I search for the most innovative, cutting edge ‘tools for the spirit’ and spiritually oriented jewelry being fashioned today. Whether crafted from my own designs or from the numerous overseas suppliers whose work you’ll find here, each and every piece has been hand selected and meticulously examined for its excellence in design, overall quality and craftsmanship.

Our collection of Shakti jewelry for personal empowerment, kirpan and khanda jewelry, (sacred dagger and sword jewelry - to remind us to ‘cut through life’s challenges and achieve excellence’) and dharma jewelry, we believe is unparalleled.

Please indulge yourself in some of the most dazzling, empowering ornaments and artful objects available today, all at quite reasonable prices! Enjoy and thanks!
