Dear WoW Community,
As we bid farewell to 2023, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the incredible journey we've had together. This year has been filled with inspiring events, milestones, and growth for Wings of Wisdom, and we're thrilled to share the highlights with you.
The Alpina Gstaad pop up event, at Six Senses Spa
Exclusive to Gstaad, Switzerland, our fine jewellery pop up welcomed guests over two days to come and discover our collection of fine jewellery Shifted Paradigm. In partnership with Maison Belmont, we presented our pendants, chains, rings and earrings in 18 carat gold to the wonderful clientele of the hotel.
Thank you to the whole team at The Alpina Hotel, offering the most beautiful setting for our event. Our continued support from the Six Senses family was heartfelt, and still is.
The Berkeley World LOVE Magazine launch, at the Bulgari London
The Berkeley World, a luxury travel and lifestyle concierge service agency launches their LOVE issue magazine, coupled with the unveiling of the Aurea Healing Heart sculpture. A memorable moment where we all gathered at the Bulgari hotel in London, for the occasion of the launch.
The event acted also as a gentle reminder to us all of the power of love and where each and every one of us can make space for it. We sponsored the event with a perfumed candle for each guest, in the spirit of… love.
London Craft Week, a celebration of British Craft
The Columbia Hotel provided the perfect space for us to install our pop up event for the occasion of London Craft Week. We were very grateful to have our proposal accepted by this renowned week-long festival held in London every year, celebrating British craft.
Our focus was placed on our collection of scented candles and the process of production each vessel undergoes, thanks to our partners at Heraldic Pottery in Stoke-On-Trent. From the vessel made from natural materials, to the hand applied 22 carat gold, guests gained awareness of the detail, time, and craft that goes into our range of products. It’s about quality with us, not quantity, whilst ensuring we work with local suppliers and the wonderful array of artistry we have here in the United Kingdom.
Our debut in the United States of America
June saw the introduction of our fine jewellery pieces and scented candles at none other than luxury coastal resort Gurney’s in Montauk, New York. This marks an important milestone for us, as we strengthen our presence in the United States. Thank you to our American friends for the support, more things to come in 2024.
Our pop up event at Nobu Ibiza Bay, with Six Senses
Pinch us, we have arrived in Ibiza! Set within the incredible Nobu hotel in Ibiza, we offered guests a symbols reading, hand illustrated by our hand picked spiritual leader, whilst perusing our collection of fine jewellery and scented candles. Thank you again to the team at Six Senses Spa and Nobu Ibiza Bay, the Full Moon ceremony we hosted on the rooftop for 15 guests, was nothing short of spectacular.
Crans-Montana pop up with Six Senses
Newly opened in February 2023, we had the privilege of hosting a two-day event in the beautiful boutique that is L’Atelier at Six Senses hotel & spa in Crans-Montana Switzerland. Guests enjoyed a symbols reading and Tarot card reading, with the opportunity to shop our pieces of fine jewellery and perfumed candles. A great turn out of guests and fantastic response, thank you to the incredible store manager, Six Senses marketing team and all those who made it to our event.
If there’s a movement class that will make you feel incredible inside and out, it has to be Sanctum movement classes. Founded by Gab and Luuk, partners in life and love, each single class we have taken is deeply impactful, from breathwork to kundalini moves, to rhythmic music and affirmations, we can’t get enough. It was a pleasure to be able to support their class held in London at St John’s Church, with our collection of Lunatic scented candles. Here’s to more events together in 2024.
Our Holiday campaign shoot
Shot by the talented Yulia Lebedeva and styled by the creative powerhouse that is Federic Labanca, our holiday campaign shoot at the Mandrake Hotel was an absolutely blast. The result is breath taking, if you haven’t already done so, head over to our Instagram page and see for yourself.
Working with Federica Labanca
We’ve briefly mentioned Federica Labanca, let us say more: Federica, an Italian native now based in London, brings a wealth of passion and over 8 years of experience in the global fashion and luxury industry.
Her journey began in Milan as a visual in-store manager at Dolce&Gabbana's flagship store. From there, she ventured to London, to lead the visual merchandising strategy for Northern Europe at Prada.

Her international portfolio includes renowned brands such as Tanner Krolle, iTV, Linda Farrow, CultGaia, and Jimmy Choo. She specializes in providing innovative and tailored solutions to clients worldwide. Yep, a powerhouse to say the least and we are so grateful to be working with her.

Our collaboration with The Berkeley World
To finish the year on a high, we launched our first collective holiday hamper together with The Berkeley World, luxury concierge and travel company based in London. Championing luxury travel the world-over, including resorts dedicated to protecting people and the planet.
This end of year, co-founder Andrew Bezhenar approached us to create an exclusive gift for their discerning VIP clients. We create the first of a collection of fine Bone China plates, with our unique design inspired by symbolism: here’s to another year around the Sun.
We want to give special thanks to our community of Wowsers, thank you for trusting us, for being part of the journey and sticking with us. A heartfelt thank you as well to our retail partners the world over, we could not do it without you.
