This fossilized construction from a forgotten epoch was created by master artisan Daniel Stuart. This ancient looking remnant is a signpost to the living that we should enjoy the theater of life while we are here on the stage. In addition these forms point toward creatures of lore and legend and suggest that perhaps, if these creatures once existed, that magic may be a reality also. The true magic of course exists within all of us and is revealed in the power of our own creativity. Wear this and remember the power you possess to create that which other people say is only fiction.
Each original piece was forged in steel and then castings were made from high-grade, lead-free pewter. Pewter is one of the oldest man-made alloys in the world, dating as far back as the beginning of the Bronze Age. It’s been used by the ancient Egyptians, Romans, early Norse and many other civilizations as well.
Each piece is hand finished to keep the fine details and rugged look of the original then lacquered for protection. It won't change color but will wear slightly over time giving it a beautiful antique and worn look that only adds to the story and gives the wearer a great visual conversation starter. Connection and conversation is the point of these unique handmade jewelry pieces.
