  • The Meaning of Feathers in Jewelry

    I have had many customers ask me about feather jewelry, and specifically the meaning of feathers in jewelry. It's quite interesting actually, the meaning behind both feathers and wings.

    Throughout many cultures, feathers are strong symbols of the spiritual realms representing ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Many religions and cultures around the world recognize that a white feather is a symbol that Angels are present and are hearing your prayers.

    Within Native American cultures, every group has different meanings for feathers depending on which bird they come from and their color. But it can be generally said that feathers represent honor and our connection with the Creator.

    In Egyptian history and mythology the feather of Ma’at, an ostrich feather, was associated with Ma’at the goddess of truth and justice.  The chief priest in charge of court hearings would wear the feather of Ma’at and then give the feather to the person who won the case.

    In Christianity, feathers represent the presence of Angels, and even more, stand for prayer and strict faith. The symbol of three feathers was popular in ancient Christianity, especially among the Medici, who used and wore them as an emblem representing the three virtues of faith, hope and charity.

    There are so many different interpretations of the symbolic meaning of feathers. Some people believe they represent Truth, Speed, Lightness and have protective powers. Some believe it offers balance, hope and good luck. Additionally, it is believed, that if you experience feathers in a dream then some sort of travel is about to take place. Or, on a higher level, you will soon be able to move freely in your life. If the dream includes a white feather it stands for spiritual innocence and a fresh start in life.

    The meaning of feathers in jewelry has been a popular topic of my research in my search to create and find the most beautiful aesthetic pieces.

    For me wearing a feather gives me a sense of peace and connection to the spiritual realms. It is no wonder that many people find themselves at peace when wearing feathers. They may feel more relaxed and happier. Feather's are soft, gentle, and above all connected with the living and life.

  • Paracord Bracelets - No Longer Just a Survival Tool

     

    Paratroopers in Action Paratroopers in Action

     

    A Brief History of Talulah Lee Paracord Bracelets

    Shortly before World War II, Wallace Carothers of DuPont invented a new polymide named nylon - a  “synthetic silk” that revolutionised mobile warfare. This invention allowed for the expansion of large-scale parachuting, and from this paratroopers were born. Previously, parachutes were made from spun silk, something that was in limited supply due to the natural method of its production – the humble silkworm. This new, "synthetic silk" transformed warfare and made it possible to mass produce parachutes and parachute cord faster and easier.

    Besides warfare and the large role in World War II, Paracord has always had a multipurpose use throughout history.  It's durable, functional and reliable qualities have made it an essential for Army and Navy standard equipment such as securing gear to backpacks and trucks, shelter linings, securing camouflage nets, and parachutes. Over the past three decades, paracord has made its way into everyday typical materials. You'll find paracord in boot laces, rifle slings, hammocks, jewelry and rucksacks. It's uses are limitless when you think about it!

  • 10 Reasons to Buy Fair Trade Jewelry

    Something that I have been long concerned over is the fact that the jewelry I sell is produced according to Fair Trade standards. It is common now to find many everyday items Fair trade, such as coffee, but what about jewelry?

    Fair Trade Jewelry may not be something that initially comes to mind, although most of the worlds silversmiths come from countries such as Bali and Indonesia, where working conditions and regulations are not as regulated as in developed countries like USA or here in Sweden.

    Fair Trade Jewelry is produced in such a way that the artisans and silversmiths are being helped out of poverty through an equitable, long-term and positive relationship with their trading partners.
