One day in my workshop, I was making a pair of whimsical sunshine smile earrings from my designer line, www.reginamariedesigns.com. As I was soldering one of the eyes, it slid out of place. Or so I thought... as it turned out, something magical was sliding into place. The ball of silver centered over the curved smile and I saw a symbol that made me pause, raise my arms, and shout an enthusiastic "YES!" I smiled and felt a surge of inspired energy. At that moment, I realized there was something big in this little symbol. I added the bottom triangle to form a body and immediately the muse whispered, "empowered." On that day, the Empowered Symbol was born! For a few years after that, I traveled to art shows with my designer line of jewelry, including the Empowered Symbol as sterling silver earrings. When I explained the meaning of the symbol, I found that most customers understood it immediately. They wanted to wear the earrings for inspiration. A lot of people bought them either for themselves or a friend in need of encouragement. The magic was spreading! So what really is the Empowered Symbol? To me it is a miracle, to others an inspiration. By sharing the Empowered Symbol with the world, I want to remind others to believe in themselves, to rise above their challenges, and to realize their dreams. I have created sterling silver jewelry designs with the Empowered Symbol and tee shirts and hats featuring the symbol and one-word mantras, "Empowered," "Believe," "Dream" and "Breathe." To me, these life-affirming words are most important, but we are just beginning. There is so much more to come……….
My partner and I are developing the Empowered project to deliver its message of growth and celebration to the world. We decided to start with the mantras "Dream" and "Believe" because it was our dream to launch this project and all we needed was to believe in ourselves to achieve it.
So that is where we are today, following our dream to develop an artistic line of products intended to inspire and motivate others. Our Motto: "living our dream while fulfilling our passion to help others!"

A note from the founder: Regina M. Ewer
As the founder of Empowered Zone, I am coming to this project from an artistic background. I have life experiences that I want to share and essentially need to share with the world, as I have been blessed with the opportunity to overcome many obstacles and challenges in my life. My success would not have been possible without the help and support of other women, who one day at a time, transformed their existence from days filled with hopelessness to lives full of gratitude and service to others. As I reach my 45th year on this planet, this seems to me to be the real reason we are all here.
