When Natalia Waeger was trying to think of the perfect gift for her sister when she heard the news of her first pregnancy, she never thought her idea would be the catalyst to a full-blown business. What she wanted to create for her sister was a unique, bespoke piece of jewellery to mark this significant milestone – something that could be treasured and enjoyed forever.

Nikola Tesla used science to prove that humans are energy. Scientist and inventor Dr. Georges Lakhovsky, created a simple antenna to capture the natural ambient energy.
