For those who want their jewelry to express their feelings, attitudes and wishes..
UNICORN: The Unicorn is one of a very few mythological creatures that are considered to be beneficial in almost all traditions. To the Chinese, for example, the unicorn ( 'K'i-lin') is a symbol of wisdom, warning, a good omen, and signifies a strong, positive personality. That’s why it suits expectant mothers, as well., since it'll symbolize the birth of a bright personality.
There are three basic symbols contained in the Unicorn: the WHITE color (purity, healing, wisdom, self-knowledge, and renewal), the HORSE (travel, power, and movement), and the Horn (unity of thought and purity of reason).
HORSE: In many cultures, the HORSE symbolizes power, beauty, nobility, strength and freedom. And in ancient Chinese Feng Shui philosophy, it symbolizes changes ... for the better!
BAT:In fact, it's largely misunderstood, and so many of its symbolic meanings are inappropriately fear-based. However, Native Americans consider the BAT as a symbol of intuition, dreaming and vision. This made the bat a powerful symbol for Native American shamans. It is a symbol of communication because the Native Americans observed the bat to be a highly social creature. Indeed, the bat has strong family ties. They are very nurturing, exhibiting verbal communication, touching, and sensitivity to the others.
BUTTERFLY: Traditionally, the Butterfly is associated with the soul. People honor the butterfly as a symbol of transformation because of its impressive process of metamorphosis. Herein lies the deepest symbolic lesson of the butterfly - accepting the changes in our lives as casually as it does. Other symbolic features of the butterfly talisman are grace, growth, elegance, lightness, transition, and celebration.
CADUCEUS: The Caduceus is an ancient symbol traditionally associated with medicine and healing. The word “caduceus” comes from the Greek word “kerykeion” which literally means “Herald’s staff”. A herald was originally a messenger sent by monarchs to convey a message or proclamation. A staff is known as being a magical artifact or wand associated with wisdom and the ability to perform mystical actions. In Greek mythology, the stick is actually a staff that was carried by the Olympian god Hermes. Hermes was a messenger between the gods and humans (which explains the wings) and a guide to the underworld (which explains the staff). Hermes was also the patron of travelers, which makes his connection to medicine appropriate because, in the olden days, doctors had to travel great distances by foot in order to visit their patients. In one version of Hermes' myth, he is given the staff by Apollo, the god of healing. In another version, he receives the staff from Zeus, the king of the gods, and it is entwined with two white ribbons. The ribbons were later replaced by serpents, as one story tells that Hermes used the stick to separate two fighting snakes , who then coiled around his staff and remained there in balanced harmony.The Greeks regarded snakes as sacred and used them in healing rituals, as snake venom was thought to be remedial and their skin-shedding was viewed as a symbol of rebirth and renewal. This is a good thing to keep in mind the next time you spot a caduceus featuring the seemingly sinister serpents.
ELEPHANT: In Feng Shui, as well as in other cultures, the Elephant is considered a sacred symbol. Although it is used to symbolize power, wisdom, strength and fertility, it is also associated with happiness, longevity, good luck and success.
It can act as the grantor of wishes and as the protector of the household, too.
