The coins in the third picture are a 2016 US Lincoln Head penny we used as a size gag. The larger lower coin is a 1960 Halfpenny (Ha'penny). The third very small coin is a Jewish Mite from between 103-76 BC. The later two are more for the history and interest than as size gags.
There is another reason why we added the older coins. The stones we use are beyond ancient, having been formed when the earth was formed. Working with rocks that are millions of years old is awe inspiring. We both feel the same way when we hold a coin from ancient Israel, a coin made famous in the story of the widow's donation. Does this make us romantics? Unabashedly. We are jewelry designers - romance is all a part of that art form.
The mythical Thunderbird is a powerful entity in many Native American cultures and has almost as many aspects. It can represent authority and power, indomitable spirit, expansiveness, victory, Divine Domination, and a symbol of creation.
Onyx is a strength stone. It assists with steadfastness, stamina, self-confidence, self-control, memory and wise decision making.
Malachite is reputed to be the stone for prosperity, inner peace, intellectual development, good luck and mental clarity. It is said to enhance business success, aid in gaining and keeping a job, and developing leadership skills. It is credited with providing protection to travelers, helping one gain self-confidence, and developing empathy and wisdom.
