Halibut Spirit Pin
Pewter Jewelry, 2 1/4" x 1 3/8"
Halibut starting life swimming on a vertical plane, it shifts to the horizontal, as it belatedly discovers that nature intended it to be a bottom feeder. Almost as an afterthought, the underneath eye then migrates to the top as form follows function. A talisman for the late bloomers in life or for people who continually surprise others with their true identity. A seafarer of the deep, the halibut fearlessly seeks out its favorite food, the octopus, as symbolized in the design's center.
I designed these animal spirit pieces to honor the creatures that inhabit my adopted state, Alaska. The animals that call Alaska home have to endure all the seasonal changes from the sub-zero temperatures of our winters to the frenetic activity of our 24hr summer days.
-This pewter pin has two tack backs and military-style clasps (very secure). Because of this, it cannot use our pin converters.
-All animal spirit pewter pins have the above description on the back of the jewelry card.
