Announcement   I have decided to deviate from my usual path for a little while and take a small side-road for this latest jewelry line;

*** ELYSIUM ***
... Was my inspiration for a jewelry line consisting of bracelets for the heroes in your life, whether they're men or women.
It is more organic and natural than my usual creations. I used African Opal, Agate, leather, copper, and shells.

It is specially designed with nature in mind and beautiful people who are strong and selfless. The ones who kill fires in mountains and forests, but also the ones in the city with a desk job, who fight for justice. The people who come to the defense of the voiceless and innocent. The ones who overcome their personal fears. The ones who do not seek the limelight and are content to do their heroism behind the scenes. Kind people. Thoughtful people. Maybe the one who came to check on you when you weren't feeling so well. Or the one who always makes you smile. You know... The heroes in our lives...

ELYSIUM
Elysium was the Ancient Greek paradise
originally reserved for the heroes of
Greek Mythology

Elysium delighted in a perpetual Spring and
shady groves, with its own sun and lit by its own
stars. Elysium, the land of perfect happiness,
was also the imagined dwelling place for those
who had lived a righteous life.

Some of the important gods and goddesses of
death resided in Elysium living in the golden
palace where Hades, the Prince of Darkness
and Persephone the Queen of the Underworld
presided over their royal court... ♥



***********************************************************************************
My signature line:
~PEACOCKS AND PAISLEY~
All things have a story, and many of the stories chase each other, like circles in the sky.

To the ancients, the peacock symbolized the shimmering starry firmament of the night sky.
The Supreme Goddess, Hera, was first among the Goddesses at Mount Olympus. In her reign, she had known both great joy and pain. She was a powerful patron of marriage and childbirth. Her quick wit often surpassed that of her husband, Zeus.
She lived in golden splendor, favoring the great citadel of Argos. Surrounded riches, she drove her chariot between Argos and Mount Olympus, through the heavens, in a chariot drawn by peacocks.

The story is told that after the death of a loyal watchman, Hera placed the hundred gem-like eyes of Argos Panoptes into the tail feathers of her peacocks. These great eyes, which can still be seen impressed on the tail feathers of the peacock, watched over her at night just like the dazzling stars.
The great mortal artists of the East were inspired by the patterns they saw around them, including the natural designs to be found within the peacock’s feathers. They used those patterns to create the designs we now know as Paisley.

Elegant and beautiful, Peacocks and Paisley bring to us an echo of the past.

About MoodsWingz Designs:
Ranging from Feminine and Delicate to Bold and Outspoken - are words best to describe my style of jewelry creations, and the women that enjoy wearing them...
~ All jewelry is non-allergic ~

Inspired by the delicate beauty of nature, the night sky, birds and butterflies, flowers, stories and fairy tales, magic, old movies, and romance.

Every item is designed and handmade by me, and guaranteed OOAK (One Of A Kind). Because I use mainly antique and vintage components that are very difficult to find and only in tiny amounts, I am not able to recreate a design.

Your purchase will arrive gift wrapped, ready for gift giving at no charge. Or to enjoy as a gift to yourself :)
