1888's Take: "Sometimes extremely powerful forces come in small packages. Don't underestimate them."

~Bear, Bear Claw ~

The bear represents an ability to act fiercely when necessary, but only if absolutely needed. They are ferocious protectors of their young and unpredictable when aggressive. Indigenous American tribes use the bear to represent the warrior's spirit.

~Turquoise~

For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the Great Spirit in the Sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken an injury for its wearer.

~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, a deep and dark secret, 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.

 

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.
