What is telos?

The name Telos Art Shop was inspired by the Greek τέλος meaning purpose or goal. All of creation was formed to appreciate and take part in the Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. To give glory to its Creator and ultimately be with Him in Heaven. We are called to live for our telos.

Beauty is not the end itself; rather through Telos Art Shop we seek to help you live for your telos through inspired beauty. With a background in architecture and design, founder Jessica Connolly combines her eye for modern design with symbols of faith to craft unique jewelry, art, and design.

God is: Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.

“These are the only three things that we never get bored with, and never will, for all eternity, because they are attributes of God, and therefore of all God’s creation: three transcendental or absolutely universal properties of all reality.”

— Peter Kreeft

Whether it be a vintage medal, a new painting, or handmade earrings, the beauty of each design is intended to point toward a greater reality. A higher end.

“We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words—to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it.”

―C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
