Animals of all types were favored motifs in Victorian design but none perhaps as much as the lion. Usually depicted roaring, sometimes with a gem held in it's jaws, the king of the jungle could be found on bracelets, lockets, and pendants to name a few of the more popular forms. A popular protection talisman across many cultures, and a favorite form in heraldic emblems since ancient times, the lion represents courage, power, fidelity and strength. He's also the latin word for "lion" and so the symbol of that astrological sign. This particular fellow was cast from a stickpin and his bell shaped dangle from the decorative fringe of a beaded victorian reticule ( that's a purse to you and me). A limited edition item carefully crafted in solid sterling silver yet light weight enough for everyday wear. He's approximately 1 1/4" in total length from top of kidney wire curve to bottom of the bell shaped drop. ❃ Shop earrings at The Eden Collective: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939711&ref=shopsection_leftnav_2 ❃ We are happy to offer layaway.
