1888 Nate's Take: "Ace's tend to stay with dealers, better to create your own luck through preparedness, perseverance & presence."
Coyotes in Native American folklore often represent hidden wisdom and a strong sense of humor!
~Ace of Spades~
It's been said that those who identify with this card are able to detect truth & dishonesty better than most. A handy trick if you happen to be a gambler. Those who associate with this symbol are also known to have a stronger drive succeed than normal, in both matters of the heart & the wallet.
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.
~Claws, Teeth, Bones~
The claws, teeth, and bones of wild animals have historically been worn as symbols of prowess & social standing. Deep admiration was given to those who could kill the most fearsome of beasts. It's no longer a necessity for most of us to hunt for our survival, so the wearing of claws, teeth, & bones has become symbolic of overcoming great obstacles despite our fears & connecting with our inner animal as we charge forth the evolution of the spirit.
