1888's Take: "Saying goodbye to a place you have gained your power back can be an emotionally tumultuous time. There are often anchors set that hold you in place because they made you safe. But you have been building up a great flagship and your sails are fully displayed. Don't let anything hold you back from catching the wind. Go!" – Nathan

 ~Onyx~

A powerful warrior stone, Onyx helps stomp out negative thought patterns stemming from the most debilitating and toxic emotion of them all – fear. Include Onyx in your gem collection and always know that whatever happens, this powerful root chakra stone always has your back.

~Keys / Locks~

The right key can unlock the door to a lover’s heart, a new and bright opportunity, a once in a lifetime adventure, a chest of treasure or secrets or even change time itself by the winding of an old grandfather clock…

Historically, 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, can serve as a reminder that there is beauty in having the key to free ourselves…but taking the first step through the door is entirely up to you…one key one lock…but what’s on the other side of the door is infinite possibility.

~Feather~

My Mother always said that if you find a feather it’s a symbol that you are on your true path, you should pick it up & keep it for luck on your journey. Commonly has 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.
