Love is Your Compass acknowledges and pays our respects to the Dja Dja Wurrung peoples, who are the past, present and emerging traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. 

We are Anna + LJ, biracial Japanese and English sisters and best friends. Our pronouns are she/her.

Growing up biracial has been a journey of self-acceptance and learning to value ourselves just as we are, whilst bridging two vastly different cultures. This sometimes difficult journey of embracing all of ourselves is what has birthed Love is Your Compass.

Our work is influenced by our Japanese heritage and connection to a culture of ritual + mindfulness.

Our Story:

Love is Your Compass comes from an affirmation that LJ created back in 2011, “The World is Small when Love is Your Compass”. It reminds us to stay anchored to our core being and honour who we are, exactly as we are, whilst reminding us to keep doing the deep inner work + trust our inner compass.

Working and living together in community often accelerates the opportunity to do this inner work, because we each act as mirrors, bringing to light the areas within each other that require healing. We started creating talismans to support ourselves on this journey.

In 2016 we started to share the talismans we had created to support ourselves with you and we launched our first collection: The Pathfinder Wolves.  

All the sacred talismans we create are intended to support you through this process to shift your inner world. They are physical tools to support your inward journey. 

We Value:

  • Size Inclusivity:
  • As plus size women, we value size inclusivity. We offer different length necklace chains which go up to 21.5 inches (54.5cm) at no additional cost because we want you to feel good wearing your necklace.
  • The Environment: As a family regenerating the land we live on, we recognise the deep importance of the environment and the ecosystems of which we are a part. We package with environmentally friendly packaging whenever possible. Read about Us and the Environment 
  • Small Batch Production: As a small businesses we value handmade small batch producers that retain that person to person feel and are mindful of energy + intention. In a world of mass production and mind over heart, we feel that this is important, so we spend a lot of time building relationships with these types of suppliers.
    Reparations: We pay 1% of our annual income to Pay The Rent - A Pay The Rent scheme organised by First Nations and non-First Nations people working together, who together are called the Pay The Rent Grassroots Collective. This collective is based in what is now known as Victoria.
