1888's Take: "Don't allow the past to color the future. Learn to grow and evolve without anyone else's say- including the old you."

~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.

~Heart~

Often referred to as the seat of emotions, the heart is, of course, analogous to love and affection. Like the red rose, the heart symbol states one's clear intention to express their love, desire and courage. I was once taught that you get the courage for something after you do it…so have HEART!

~Star~

Our imaginations have been captivated by the stars since the first sentient human looked up and wondered what those iridescent glowing orbs could possibly be. The five-pointed star has been found on mason jars dating back to 3100 B.C.E uncovered North of Thebes in Egypt. It's been etched onto ancient Mesopotamian tablets dating back to 3200 B.C.E.What makes the Star such a prolific symbol across human culture? Perhaps, it’s close association to the heavens or its perfect Pythagorean geometry. It represents hope, serves as a guiding light to show us the way home, and so much more.

 

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.
