Peacocks are a deeply symbolic bird, and as such their feathers have become steeped in meaning.
Ancient Greek Meanings
In ancient Greece, the peacock was the patron bird of the goddess Hera. According to myth, she placed "eyes" on its feathers, symbolizing all-seeing knowledge and the wisdom of the heavens.
Hindu mythology associates peacocks with the god Lakshmi. The feathers thus represent his qualities: kindness, patience and good fortune.
Buddhists associate peacock feathers with openness, since the birds display everything when they spread their tails. Buddhists also ascribe great meaning to the bird's diet of poisonous plants--the ability to thrive in the face of suffering.
A single peacock feather rests between two pieces of glass with a "loose leaf" looking soldered edge that I designed at the top. Very unique, and always one of a kind :)
This charm measures 1 1/2" x 1" and hangs from a gun metal colored ball chain.
