"Paper Straws" 1888 Design Necklace


Reimagined Components: Vintage Sea-Lite key sea turtle and hammered gold tone ring on 28" 4mm brass curb chain. 

1888 Nate's Take: "As annoying as paper straws are, ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING that keeps plastic straws out of the sinuses of sea turtles is a good idea. What today can you do to use less what one change can you make to leave this world better and not worse for having created you." 


Sure footed and steady always comes to mind when thinking of the turtle, but it also carries a powerful ability to protect itself from harm. Often thought of as the rock for those in need. Few predators can break it's defenses so, those who connect with this symbol often hold a great confidence walking into situations that may intimidate others. Last, but not least, the turtle is a symbol of longevity.

~Keys / Locks~

Historically, Keys have been used for everything from winding pocket watches to switching on the first two-way radios! The most common symbolic meaning used for the key is its power to unlock the door to the heart, opportunity or adventure. 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, remind us that the key to life is making sure you have the right tools before approaching opportunity.

This 1888 Design is a: One of a kind.
