Symbolic dog jewellery

Dog is a symbolic animal. Dogs appear frequently in the myth and folklore of Celtic lands: as the animal form of a divinity, usually a goddess; as a companion to heroes, usually male; and as spirit- beings associated with the Otherworld. The connection of dogs with religion may be very ancient in Celtic lands, because remains of their bones, found in early sites, appear to indicate they were killed sacrificially. The disgust that even contemporary people in the ancient Celtic lands feel toward eating dog meat, not shared by people of many lands, may be a long-lasting memory of a taboo against consuming the flesh of a sacrificial victim.

Beautiful and mysterious Abalone pearl jewelry

Abalone – a pearl of marine mollusks of the genus Haliotis. Haliotis does not tolerate desalination of water. There are more than 51 kinds of mollusks. Shades of abalone nacre (mother-of-pearl) are very diverse and changeable: from pale pink and white, emerald green, sea green, cobalt blue, orange-red to purple and almost black. Variety of colors and shades is explained by the structure of the shell, consisting of microscopic plates separated by an air gap, which refracts the rays. All marine mollusks differ in color and pattern, but the most valuable for jewelers is abalone nacre called “feather of the Firebird” or “rainbow shell” for its fantastic shades of pearl, virtually all the colors of the rainbow. Sometimes, very rarely, inside the abalone shell are pink-green iridescent pearls! The more bizarre and unique are colors of abalone nacre, the more unique, one of a kind product out of it will be.
