Heron Spirit Pin, Pewter
Item: 1019A PW
Heron Spirit Pin, Pewter Heron Jewelry
1 5/8" x 2 3/8"
Connected to the elements of water, earth, and sky, my Great Blue Heron represents a spirit which seeks balance. As if frozen in time; both patient and solitary, this bird is poised to take advantage of what the waters of life might bring. Can you find the five fish secreted within this piece?
I never tire of watching these birds in the wild especially when I am escaping an Alaskan winter. They have such grace and patience and are great fishers. There is actually a white species and I was fortunate to see one while visiting the Everglades a number of years ago. Heron jewelry is fairly rare, I hope you enjoy this piece with his bright blue tail feathers and soft matte finish.
I love to design. Wherever I walk, I am always looking for ways to capture the natural world in a piece of jewelry. I owe my talent as an artist to my maternal grandfather, Erland Waastrom, a Swede who immigrated to this country in the early 20th century. My grandfather was a visual artist. He painted versions of old masters in oils and even recreated the Mona Lisa in pastels! He was also a sculptor and worked in various mediums, including metal and wood. One time he carved a tree root, capturing the image of an embracing couple beneath a grape arbor. I believe that I have carried his love of art and creativity forward through my design work.
-This pewter pin has two tack backs and military-style clasps (very secure). Because of this, it cannot not use our pin converters.
