~Smoky Quartz~

Smoky Quartz is an excellent grounding stone.  It gently neutralizes negative vibrations and is detoxifying on all levels, Smoky Quartz disperses fear, lifts depression and negativity.  It brings emotional calmness, relieving stress and anxiety by promoting positive thoughts and actions.

~Mother of Pearl~

The iridescent lining of a sea mollusk, it is said to hold strong powers of protection and balance out our emotions. Gaining a heightened sense of intuition, creativity, and adaptability are just a few of this stunning white and sometimes pale pink nacre's known effects on those who wear it.

~Buttons~

Buttons are filled with storied symbolism, from the beautiful mother-of-pearl buttons made in the 1940s by the Lucky Day Co. to those still being pulled from the earth by metal-detecting hobbyists that fell from the uniforms of civil war soldiers. Buttons very much like coins are often engraved and printed with the insignia of our land, our people, or our cause. So wearing one today can remind us of who we are now or where we come from. 

~Wood~

"The quiet power that created progress for humanity." Wood is one of the most versatile, essential, and sacred substances of our whole existence. Without fire, oxygen, and shelter, there would be no "us". Humans have been utilizing wood since the earliest recognition that we could make use of the materials around us. From utensils, furniture, tools, weapons, and means of transportation, wood has surely played a prominent role in our human evolution, although humans aren't the only ones to appreciate and adopt wood into its existence. Many animals and insects find homes and hideouts within these natural abodes, as well as a large variety of fungus thriving on nothing more but the decaying titans of the forest. To some, different types of wood hold unique masculine or feminine energies with different types of magic properties. For example, Applewood holds a feminine energy and promotes peace, harmony, and the appearance of spiritual visions, while hickory wood holds a masculine energy and promotes leadership skills, wholeness, and a sense of direction.

 

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.
