1888 Nate's Take: "Key, Feather, Mother of Pearl, Freedom, Dreams, and Imagination. A triumphant combination for starting a new phase of life."
~Mother of Pearl~
The iridescent lining of a sea mollusk, it is said to bring about prosperity, heighten intuition and imagination.
~Keys / Locks~
Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.
My Mother used to say that if you came across a feather lying in your path, it’s a sign that you are headed in the right direction, your true path, and you should pick it up and keep it as a talisman of luck for your journey.
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.
