1888 Nate's Take: "It would be easy to push your passions to tomorrow...but pushing yourself to take even the smallest of steps towards a life you could love is always worth it."
Moonstone is foremost a talisman of the inward journey, taking one deep into the self to retrieve what is missing, the parts of the soul left behind or forgotten, then brought to light. Moonstone offers protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom.
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.
~“Indian" Head Cent~
Most don’t realize that the image on this incredible coin was modeled after the Greco-roman Statue of the Goddess Venus Accroupie & adorned in a Native American headdress of eagle feathers. Things are not always what they seem, a second look or deeper study can often reveal an unexpected truth & a deeper understanding.
