~Indian Head Cent~
Most don’t realize that the image on this incredible coin was modeled after the Greco-roman Statue of the Goddess Venus Accroupie & adorned in a Native American headdress of eagle feathers. Things are not always what they seem, a second look or deeper study can often reveal an unexpected truth & a deeper understanding.
My Mother always said that if you find a feather it’s a symbol that you are on your true path, that you should pick it up and keep it for luck on your journey. Feathers have commonly represented everything from the center of the cosmos, to luck. Used in countless cultures around the globe for rituals, ceremonies, as a status symbol or even a plain ol' writing tool, the feather can also be a symbol of versatility. The Navajo Indians used hawk and eagle feathers to make their “Headdress of Feathers”. Only warriors who had displayed extraordinary bravery were allowed to wear it. In the stories created by our jewelry, 1888's feathers represent freedom & the need to soar towards passion. Oh, & a little good luck never hurts.
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
