The "firefly" fairy is a fire elemental. Fire is a symbol of inspiration, of change and being able to adapt very quickly to new situations. Wearing a pendant with a "fire" connection can symbolise trying to break free of your limitations, connecting to the spiritual realms as well as your own higher self and of feeling free to travel (both in the real world and inner world) wherever you wish.
We say: A dainty pendant. An anti tarnish coating has been given which also highlights the detail.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Magical, happiness, joy
Fairies are typically portrayed as friendly little beings with wings. They're called many names, such as little people, wee ones, hill folk and nature spirits, and live in Fairyland as well as inhabiting trees and plants in the human world.
Legend has it that fairies have the ability to let humans see what they want them to see and they can take on the form that humans expect of them. They're said to be mostly friendly, happy creatures, although they can be mischievous and play tricks, and they enjoy singing, laughing and spreading joy and happiness.
Fairies have been famously represented in children's books, such as the Flower Fairy series, and almost every culture in the world has some reference to such beings.
Pictures and images of fairies signify a connection with the magical realm and can provide a touch of happiness, fun and joy into life.
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.
Amy Brown is a designer who is renowned for her fairy art and fairy jewellery. She’s had a lifelong interest in fairies, but her career in fairy art happened somewhat accidentally. Whilst working in a small art gallery in 1992, her boss asked her to paint something for an empty frame. Her choice of subject matter was a fairy and the picture sold within three days. This spurred her on to paint and draw more and more fairies and it eventually became the focus of her career.
Amy Brown continues to draw and sell her artwork. Her designs have since been licensed to many other companies, which has resulted in the production of iconic fairy jewellery and products such as stationery, stickers, cards and figurines. Amy is an influential fairy artist who thrives on her work and continues to be inspired by the magic of the fairies.
