Sometimes, the magic of a memory can inspire an entirely new life trajectory.
For Sophie Amsellem-Le Moigne, a serendipitous stroll among the artisanal shops of Barcelona’s famous Barrio Gòtico evoked long recollections of her childhood fascination with jewelry."
At a very young age, she explains, "I felt drawn to the power of gemstones and the good it does for people.»
After 4 years of Gemmology at the famous "Institut de gemmologie de Paris", Sophie’s professional life has taken a different turn.
Following a successful career in communication & management, Sophie is now returning to her first passion : gemstones.
Having moved from Paris, Sophie decided there and then to launch her jewelery brand : AMA SPRING.
She's now proudly dedicating herself to making jewelry that is ethical, beautiful, and packed with positive, life-affirming energy
Where is Ama Spring coming from ?
‘Ama’ refers to Mother Earth, to the divine Feminity, to human love…
Sophie has added ‘Spring’ to mark the end of winter and the transformation that accompanies it as nature awakens and comes back to life.
We love to draw the parallel between Hummingbird legend* and our day to day job.
AMA SPRING is doing its bit to improve one's behavior, to optimize communication, to deepen our understanding, to facilitate our learning process, to put emphasis on working with good people, to live in the now.
*Hummingbird legend :
One day, a long time ago and in a faraway place, or so the legend goes, there was a huge forest fire that was raging the countryside.
All the animals were terrified, running around in circles, screaming, crying and helplessly watching the impending disaster.
But there in the middle of the flames, and above the cowering animals, was a tiny hummingbird busy flying from a small pond to the fire, each time fetching a few drops with its beak to throw on the flames. And then again And then again.
After a while, an old grouchy armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous useless agitation on the part of the hummingbird, shouted "Hummingbird! Aren't you crazy? You won't put out the fire with these drops of water!"
And the hummingbird replied, "I know it, but I'm doing my part."
Whether your Ama Spring’s jewel is considered as a talisman piece, a protector, or a graceful jewel , each piece has one aim – to make the person wearing it shine !
This is the full story of the Ama Spring Logo.
From the earliest known times through present day, the earth's stones and metals have held a combination of power, beauty, mystery and magic.
Gemstones are eye-catching and make gorgeous embellishments for jewelry or even home decor
They are also believed to contain various energies that can either, heal, harm, protect, increase psychic awareness, or help or attain some of the things we desire.
AMA SPRING loves the idea of creating jewels with specifics good vibes.
Each jewel carries the energy of its stone. Depending on the moment, we are more attracted to an amethyst, an agate or a turquoise ... why?
Because we need that gemstone’s energy at that specific moment of our life.
Just as we need water, healthy food or good thoughts to live better.
« It is so nourishing to learn about the power of stones, it's a endless path !»
