A griffin (also spelled gryphon and griffon) is a mythical creature. Bulfinch’s Mythology describes the griffin as having “the body of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle, and back covered with feathers.” The gryphon is a combination of eagle and lion makes the griffin a powerful symbol of vigilance and strength. The bronze griffin in this photo is a crest on a Roman helmet from the first or early second century AD.

I am new to Netflix! I have missed so many series I wanted to see and now I can see them. I watched the entire series of Tudors and love the series! I also loved the jewelry and would like to create jewelry that looks old but honoring the new! I love historic items and new items that look old. These findings are 100% American Made and have wonderful plating that is dipped 3-4 times! Great product for me to work with!

Happy Friday!!
