Wild Things

Lions and tigers and bears, and other forest inhabitants.  The forest is as wild as it's distance from mankind.  We write about it in poems and letters.  We vacation tramping about the wilds.  There is something about the wildness of the woods that captures our attention and our imagination.  In our expanding collection of wild creatures there are lions and tigers and bears, and ferrets, trees, and wolves.  Our animal jewelry is special because we respect, admire and are thankful for the creatures of our planet; this inspiration creates our animal sculptures.  We hope that you will find a piece among our collection that will inspire you, or a friend, as a totem, as a memory, as a reminder of the grandeur of this amazing planet. 

"This we know - the Earth does not belong to man - man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected."  Chief Seattle

"We need the tonic of wildness, to wade sometimes where the bittern and the meadow hen lurk, to smell the whispering sedge, where only some wilder and more solitary creature builds her nest and the mink crawls with his belly close to the ground.  At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable.  We can never have enough of nature.  We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features.  The seacoast with it's wrecks, the forest with it's living and it's decaying trees, the thundercloud, and the rain which lasts three weeks and preoduces freshets.  We need to witness our own limits transgressed and some life pasturing freely where we never wander."  Thoreau
