Cage Cuff in Sterling Silver & Lapis
The Pawnee sought refuge in the stars, their guardians and their prophets. The ‘cuff’ explores ideas of protection and safekeeping, its cage-like bands contour to the wrist, as its bold hand-carved lapis lazuli stone arrows also bear protective symbolism. This remarkable cuff is the perfect talisman for shielding and strengthening.
Prevalent in ancient Egyptian jewellery, and a symbol of royalty and wisdom, lapis lazuli is characterised by its intense, midnight blue hue and shimmering golden flecks. A combination of three minerals, - lazurite, calcite and pyrite - lapis lazuli is in legend said to ‘have existed before time was born’. An ancient stone reminiscent of the night sky and shining stars, this parallel explains its spiritual importance in connecting the physical plane with the celestial kingdom. Enhancing wisdom, intuition and the growth of psychic abilities.
