I have always been fascinated by the symbolism that one finds in the circle - so much that I once wrote a paper on The Circle for one of my college classes when I was pursuing my masters degree.
The circle has no beginning and it has no end and, thus, represents infinity, eternity, and completeness. The circle also stands for inclusion, wholeness, focus, unity, nurturing, cycles, initiation, perfection, centering, infinity, mobility, and more. The circle means we are included, we are drawn in, we are a part of whatever is around us. We also see circles throughout our daily lives: wheels, gears, CDs, plates, bowls, mugs, marbles, eyes, balls, rings, halos, lazy susans, yo yos, coins, and the sun. I can also think of a few companies that incorporate the circle into their logos.
ETSY has circles too! ETSY circles are "a great way to stay connected with other members of the Etsy community." And one of the teams I like to stay connected with is the ETSY Promo Love team! As you can see in the treasury below members have nurtured their creative spirit and passion by creating these lovely circular pieces.!
Have you created a circle lately?
