1888's Take: "I think often times we forget that things don't have to be permanent. The job we hate, the town we've outgrown, the habits we've developed, the way we view ourselves... All of the things around you that make up your life can change by a simple choice. And I feel it's not always the destination that we get scared of, it's the flight to get there. But remember that without the flight there would be no change, evolution, growth..." -Ali

~5 centesimos 1969 Chilean Coin~

1969 Republica de Chile. Escudo currency, active years: 1960-1970

~Andean Condor~

The Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus) is the largest flying bird in the world both by weight and wingspan (maximum wingspan: 10ft 10in, weight: 33lb). It is native to the South American Andes Mountains and is the one and only member of the Vultur genus. The female condor is smaller in size compared to the male, which is an exception to the rule among birds of prey.

~Watch n’ clock~

The incredible craftsmanship required to create a piece of machinery so sensitive that it can keep perfect synchronous motion is a true testament to human ingenuity and artistry.

~Feather~

Mother always said that if you find a feather it’s a symbol that you are on your true path, that you should pick it up and keep it for luck on your journey. Feathers have commonly 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.

 

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.
