The Fifth Element Life is an ode to the aether, the unknown force that binds us into existence - a brand that infuses spirituality + creativity + philanthropy and incorporates sacred symbolism, text and meaning in each and every product.
Using mandalas as the intentional focal point of the label, Creative Director + Designer Sarah Wilder asks each mandala symbol + talisman she creates to act as a physical prompt to bring it’s meaning to the consciousness of the seeker who wears it, acting as a potential manifesting aid. These treasures transcend trend and take the owner on a journey within themselves, creating a fellowship of conscious consumers in their wake.
Sarah believes that everything carries an energy and life force, including words, symbols and physical objects. Combining these three things, she invites her kindred community to bring more of their spiritual power into all they do, say and feel and use her creations as a gateway to further motivate, inspire and manifest desires.
Through her work we are invited to concentrate on what is important to us and to help us to embody that which we advocate for. Her wish is for people to always choose meaning over mundane and to follow the magick in that meaning, always.
The official TFEL tribe and customer base, ‘The Kindred Sisterhood’ are thousands of women spanning across over 50 countries worldwide who are all connected by their desire to bring more meaning into their sacred lives. Our tribe feel deeply connected to their chosen talisman, for it reflects a part of their own journey in this lifetime and these incredibly inspiring women are ever united by their stories, challenges, triumphs and conscious decision to grow and connect to their truth.
When you see a fellow kindred sister wearing her talisman, you instantly feel connected, which is the core reason for the birth of this brand - to unite us physically, mentally and energetically and to remind us we are never truly alone.
Since it's inception in 2012, TFEL has since expanded its offerings to a range of spiritual self-explorative tools like oracle cards, mandala stones, guided meditations and colouring books - incorporating Sarah's passion for art, sacred geometry, rituals, symbolism and animism and her Intuitive and Zoomancy gifts.
The TFEL team is comprised of Sarah and her twin flame, bestie and Operations Manager Danique - along with a small handful of other conscious freelancers and businesses. They also work closely with a beautiful team of artisans in Bali, Indonesia who help bring Sarah's talisman visions to life.
Making conscious business choices is very important to Sarah and Danique and they pride themselves on their ability to check in with their own ethics and values when making and implementing all business decisions. They choose local suppliers, printers and small businesses where possible and try to create minimal waste and high-quality products that will stand the test of time.
When they aren't picking, packing and shipping your orders or designing and developing free content for their loyal following, Sarah and Danique enjoy harmonising (terribly) to the Lemonade album, taking photos of their adorable pets Bambi + Peaches, and sending each other memes while sitting next to one another.
