Please include as many of your responses to the following question prompts as you can, using your own words and experiences.

Authentic expression is worth its weight in gold!
1) How did you find us?
-Example response: "I found Beiam through an Instagram ad. There was a photo of a purple stone in a silver necklace in front of a snowy landscape that really caught my eye and made me wonder what it was"
2) What drew you to the Gateway?
-Example Response: "I was interested in the Gateway once I realized how nice it would be to have a necklace that I could customize every day based on what I'm wearing or how I'm feeling"
3) How do you use your Gateway and Cores? Do you change what you’re wearing based on your mood, your style, your energy, trying to set a tone for your day, etc?
-Example Responses: "I wear my Gateway everyday but usually change my core every few days based how I would like to feel in the near future or because the stone matches the vibe of what I would like to do in the upcoming few days."
"I like to switch it up to go with my style. I like wearing a bold Malachite with an all black outfit for a pop of color or switching to complementary or neutral tones when I wear bright colors or big patterns."
4) Do you feel like your Gateway helps you to express yourself? Please feel free to describe your style, aesthetic or vibe and what make you feel unique as a person (but make sure not to include sensitive personal information!)
Example Responses: "I like that the Gateway is outwardly simple and sleek, but I like that it has hidden depths. I get to customize it how ever I want, whenever I want. I can keep it the same for months if I want and then change out the core and suddenly it's a necklace with an entirely different look and feel. I like the Gateway because I'm not personally outwardly flashy, but I have a lot of hidden depth."
"I like being able to shift colors and textures based on how I feel in the moment or in my day"
"Being able to wear crystals in a way that doesn't draw attention to the fact that I love crystals is super helpful! I look professional, I get to wear and work with energies that I love, and I don't have to endure awkward questions or weird looks"
5) What is your favorite Core and why? (It can be literally any reason)
Example Response: "My favorite core is Rainbow Moonstone. It's a nice shade of white that compliments everything I wear and has a beautiful sheen when the light hits it. I feel like it makes me more aware of my internal landscape and more responsive to the people around me."
6) What was your first reaction to seeing a Gateway, either in one of our ads, on instagram, or on another person?
We don't want to prime anyone with an example response for this question. Since we make it, we have no idea what it's like to see or interact with the necklace for the first time having no idea what it is! Whatever came to mind for you is perfect.
7) Bonus points for including a visual demonstration of how easy it is to switch out your cores, chains, etc. If you want to show people your favorite stones, show off how your necklace works with different outfits or looks, or anything else you can think of feel free to do it! You'll get zero judgement here 💕.
We love seeing people express their enthusiasm for literally anything in a real way.
