The horse is a genuinely prehistoric symbol. The first written acknowledgment of the Horse was in the third millennium BC when historians uncovered slate tablets in Elam (present-day Iraq and Iran) that referenced the cultural importance of this noble creature. 


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, and 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.
