1888's Take: "Take what you know and don't apply it to the person you were. You get the wisdom after the lesson." - Nathan
A highly protective and spiritually versatile stone, malachite has been used to aid in boosting creativity-enhancing intuition, healing the heart in both the physical and emotional sense. Jewelry and ornamentation for this stone has been found on Egyptian pieces dating back at least 3000 years.
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.
