"New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings." — Lao Tzu

Rise, is about finding balance and rising up against adversity. It symbolizes swaying in high winds while remaining grounded. Available in a wide range of colors, this beautiful timepiece is abalone shell inlaid in mother of pearl.


Every Celeste watch has a story. When I first developed my Rise watch I was going through a hard time in my life. I labeled it my adversity watch but the meaning was about finding strength and rising up against whatever was holding you down. It was a symbol of bending without breaking.  

Although I would naturally be drawn to creating a tree in wood, I used shell specifically because it sparkled in the light and I wanted to sparkle too. The watch became my connection to that part of me that is able to keep my feet on the ground while simultaneously swaying in high winds.
