One of a Kind
Reimagined Components: Pink iridescent quartz crystal point with crushed pyrite dust in an antique spent bullet casing with a silver lightning bolt strung on a 23'' 3mm gun metal chain
1888's Take: Some people drape themselves in gold, others dress in black head to toe, some wear gym shorts, socks and sandals, and some may wear pink, shimmery, sparkly magic across their chest. However you choose to adorn yourself, ask yourself this- are you dressing for you, or are you dressing for others? Keeping things authentic is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself, some might even call it a form of self love. So no matter how big and bold you feel on the inside, or how simple and classy you love to be, express that because it's who you truly are. Let us all see and feel you, from the inside out.
Quartz crystal is ideal for strength, healing, emotional clearing, meditation, and lucid dreaming.
A stone of action, vitality and will, Pyrite taps into one’s abilities and potential while stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
Bullets symbolize a strong resolve and preparedness for life’s challenges, but 1888’s favorite and intended meaning is that the bullet you wear is the one that was intended for you. Wearing it around your neck gives you back the ability to control your own destiny & doubles as a symbol of protection.
“The sharp crackle and hiss of a lightning strike, and the great rumble and overtaking boom of its proceeding thunder holds a special place in my heart…I remember hiding from an August storm in an old metal drainage tube with my first love when we were just kids, watching the bluish-purple and hot white bolts of lightning slam down into the earth…. counting the seconds between the flash and the drawn-out rumble of its thunder…this would tell us how far away the storm was…at first, there was about 3 seconds between strike and sound, meaning the storm about was about three miles away…the shorter the space between the bolt and crash, the closer it was! Eventually, it was right on top of us…the rain pelting the metal pipe that we were hiding in with a frantic excitement…my heart beat fast and hard and I felt like I could feel a rushing pulse in her hands as we clasped tightly to each other. Eventually, the storm passed and I walked her home…giving her what I would find out later was her very first kiss, then I said goodnight and walked home over the wet grass.”
