1888's Take: "It's amazing how a little time and perhaps second look can change your perspective. When I first made this necklace I wasn't so sure about it...then I went to bed...woke up and with new eyes I looked at the necklace again and I absolutely loved it...What changed? I honestly don't know...however I did enter the rest of my day with the new found understanding that sometimes a little time and perhaps a good nights sleep can change ones outlook completely."
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 the injury for its wearer.

Most don’t realize that the image on this popular coin was modeled after the Greco-roman Statue of the Goddess Venus Accroupie & adorned in a Native American headdress of eagle feathers. Things are not always what they seem, a second look or deeper study can often reveal an unexpected truth & a deeper understanding.
An arrow knows where it will land the moment it is let loose. Once the archer releases, there is no second chance. At birth we all begin a journey with our inner arrow guiding the way, so follow your arrow, feel the wind in your hair & enjoy the ride!
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.
