Owl - Pendant, Pewter
Spiritual abilities are symbolized by the owl gliding through a world of darkness.
Avalon's Treasury - Jewelry, Gems & Minerals
The twirling stars of first light and the frozen lands at the beginning of time are the birthplace of ancient mysteries, mythical beings and legendary creatures: Being a mysterious nightly bird of prey the owl glides through a world of darkness, which is unknown to us, but still sees everything with its magic all-permeating eyes. This bird is therefore a symbol for the moon and the night and stands for secrets, prophecies and knowledge. Hence, this charm grants wisdom and spiritual abilities to its wearer.
This pendant is made of pewter embellished with glass crystals. Pewter is a shiny, soft metal which is very malleable and has a good tarnish resistance - this piece of jewelry has been enhanced by adding sparkling glass crystals to the remarkable design. Artists and craftsmen used pewter quite early (dinnerware, sculptures, household articles, pewter figures, jewelry) and hence pewter jewelry has a long tradition.
This jewelry is also available in copper, silver and gold

A main focus of our jewelry collections are magic symbols which are made according to historical artwork. Although a lot of people (like us) appreciate the beauty of the different designs and used materials, only few think about the deeper symbolism of these pieces of jewelry. In our modern world we see so a many different beautiful and decorative items that we usually only enjoy their beauty without considering the deeper meaning or the origin of the used motives and without knowing for what reason these items were formerly used. In our online shop we want to give answers to these questions by offering accurate background knowledge and additional information about every piece of jewelry in our collection.
Since the beginning of mankind jewelry served several different purposes. Already before the invention of money it was for example used as a kind of currency, as a status symbol or as a valuable asset that even could be passed on to future generations. Many pieces of jewelry also had a functional purpose like it is the case with fastenings for clothes, safety pins and belt buckles. However, at a more spiritual level the jewelry also had a symbolic meaning, showed the affiliation to and the status in a social group, and was worn for the protection from evil or simply to show one's own taste.
Since jewelry is such a diverse cultural asset the meaning of a given piece can depend on the point of view and beliefs of its creator. For example many cultures developed pieces of jewelry showing to others whether its wearer is married or single: In our Western world these are the wedding rings while in African countries e.g. special bracelets or necklaces are worn for this purpose. Whether we are talking about weddings jewelry or talismans and amulets that were used for protection - often the decorations and materials determine the symbolic meaning of a piece of jewelry.
Not only the used symbols and decorations differ strongly between the cultures - a huge number of different materials were also used in the course of time. In the beginnings especially shells and pearls of wood and bone were used, because these natural materials were readily available and could easily be processed. Later the precious metals silver and gold became more and more important and also the use of precious stones increased. Nowadays all possible materials are used to underline the meaning of a piece of jewelry even further thereby creating pendants and other jewelry that could not be designed using traditional materials.
Also the piece of jewelry on this page http://www.aval
-FI55.html shows a unique combination of material and symbolism. This is the information about our website and this page if you want to point to it:
