'Life is without meaning, one must give meaning to life.' Anon
Wearing jewellery is one way to bring meaning to your life and to express meaning to others.
Here are some reasons why symbolic jewellery is the perfect jewellery with meaning:
Wearing jewellery is important as it has a meaning and it reflects your intentions, beliefs etc. When you look down it brings a smile to your face when people comment on its beauty. you reflect on the meaning or significance!
Symbolic jewellery is jewellery with meaning.
Why do I say this?
The wearing of jewellery dates back to pre-historic times (that’s 2.5 million years!) Back in the stone age this would have meant sticks and stones used to decorate the body, most lightly a symbol for protection or to identify as part of a tribe or clan. In the V&A Museum in London, the jewellery room gives an in-depth history of jewellery, it often refers to jewellery as expression, as signs and symbols and for their powers.
Jewellery evolved throughout the ages with the discovery of precious metals and stones. It has continued to this day to be an expression of one’s style and status but the importance of jewellery used as a symbol for protection, intentions, beliefs, values and luck continue.
'From cradle to grave' - jewellery adorns and protects the wearer on the journey through life'
I am drawn to symbols from all over the world and I feel the inspiration to create simple, fine unique jewellery with meaning by incorporating these symbols. I am on a continuous journey of learning about symbols, their meanings and the benefits of wearing them.
