Celtic lore has many stories relating to the Crane, some rather dark and a few in a more positive light. I became fascinated with a story I came across about cranes being messengers of the gods and having a high degree of wisdom. They often represent higher states of consciousness. My favorite article talked of Cranes avoiding direct confrontation whenever possible, exhibiting a complex array of threatening behaviors when necessary to prevent battles. Thus, Cranes are symbolic of peacekeeping.
With the swearing in of the 45th President of the United States at a time when the world seems right for many possible conflicts, I think taking a page out of the Crane’s workbook on how to avoid conflict could be in order.
It is with the thought of a higher consciousness that inspired me to create the Crane Earrings you see on this site. See Earring Collection
