Dictionary Terms Explained
- Joy, life, love
Native Americans regard hummingbirds as sacred and bringers of joy, life and love. Items featuring the symbol are often given as a token of love and to show appreciation, both to friends and partners. When depicted in pairs, the meaning is further enhanced, symbolising devotion, the continuing cycle of life and eternity. A feather from the hummingbird is particularly treasured, as it's said to open the heart.
In Native American communities, where the art of storytelling is held in high regard, tales of encounters with hummingbirds are plentiful. Most tales abound with myths and lessons, aimed at helping people learn. In the case of the hummingbird, they encourage people to open up to others, share in the beauty of life, see joy in everything and everyone, and most of all, to learn to love.
Peter Stone Jewellery
- High quality jewellery manufacturer
The Peter Stone Company purchases raw silver and produces their own true .925 sterling silver alloy in their own factory. All rings are cast to size and craftsmen cut and inlay each stone for a perfect fit. Every piece of jewellery created is hand polished not tumble polished, which leads to a high quality finish that is noticeably different.
Peter Koslowski had been working on merchant ships since 1983 while living in Sri Lanka and was fortunate to be exposed to an abundance of precious stones and he began to purchase and trade them, as well as silver. During this period he also studied gemology and jewellery making in a number of countries. This then lead to the founding of the Peter Stone Company in 1992 in Bangkok, Thailand, where he still resides.
