The Tiger- Boulder Opal and Riveted- Layered -Pierced-Tiger Pendant



The Tiger

Tiger! Tiger! burning bright
In the forest of the night
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And What shoulder, and what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears,
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger! Tiger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry? 








My love for the big cats of the world was the inspiration behind this design as well as the beauty of the William Blake Poem -"The Tiger".  The boulder opal cab has a beautiful blue patch of fire in it which glows from within. Tiger as a totem:  The Tiger is the symbol of darkness and the new Moon. When a Tiger enters your life expect new adventures. It will awaken new passion and power. Tiger people do their best work at night. Tigers are associated with water and have all the properties of the element of Water-- healing, power through gentle flow, feminine energies. In China, there are 5 mystic tigers: The red tiger is south, summer and fire. The black tiger is the symbol of north, winter and water. The blue tiger is east, spring and vegetation. The white tiger is west, autumn and all metals. The yellow tiger is ruler of the earth and its energies.

Best wishes and a Happy Safe Holiday Season to everyone!

I will be finishing an Odin Pendant with Amethyst drusy very soon.  Also playing with antler and sterling.  Hoping to get a ring squeezed in somewhere. Also have the large unicorn horns to get listed and the new version of the narwhal horn. The latter is super close to getting listed.


Happy July 4th!!!
