When we were admitted to school we were introduced to literary works that familiarized us with even more fantasy figures, fairies were frequent figures in works by Shakespeare and let’s not forget everyone’s favorite fairy from Peter Pan…Tinkerbell. There was literature that painted visions of fire breathing dragons being slain by knights in shining armor.
We then advanced to learning about the gods & goddesses that possessed incredible unearthly powers in the mythology of various cultures. Some of these appeared as normal men and women, while others were a combination of human and beast.
Many of us continue to be intrigued by the mystical worlds shown to us through myths and fantasies and we seek to find some glimmer of truth in all the legends and lore. The images that these myths and fantasies have had us conjure up are broad and diverse…I bring you some of these in the form of jewelry created by members of the Starving Artists Team.
