Darśana

Darsana is meaningful adornment; a collection of fine gold jewelry inspired by the beauty of what we behold and reflect. Featuring custom antiqued mirror enveloped in 14-karat gold and diamonds; each piece is hand crafted with an engraved "all-seeing eye" symbolizing an empowering message. Express the beauty of your soul and the story of your heart with our distinctive and timeless jewelry.

Kathleen Sleigh’s approach to jewelry design stems from a desire to transcend beyond jewelry as mere adornment, but also as a way to express a soulful state of beauty and being.

Kathleen is self-taught and has always trusted her instincts for beauty. After a decade working in interior design on Chicago’s North Shore, she was inspired to channel her creative energies into designing fine jewelry, eventually founding Darśana Jewelry with the launch of her capsule collection in 2017.

    This Darśana necklace is inspired by an E.E. Cummings poem.
    "here is the deepest secret nobody knows
    (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
    and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
    which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
    and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

    i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)"
    - ee cummings
