Hand finished Pewter Ammonite Brooches with relief detail and central cabochon. Secures to garment by way of a pin with locking, safety catch

The ammonite was named after the Egyptian god Ammon and belongs to an extinct group of Cephalopods (which means 'head-foot').The ammonites were present on the Earth for a period spanning over 140 million years. They first appeared on Earth some 208 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period. Large specimens were commonly up to one metre across and weighed up to 100 kg. They became extinct about the same time that the majority of the dinosaurs disappeared.
Ammonites were a form of fast moving marine invertebrate, closely related to the modern-day squid, octopus and nautilus. They had a coiled shell, which was internally partitioned into small chambers. Once the ammonite grew too large for its living chamber, it formed a new one next door and then moved into it, in the process creating the characteristic spiral shape of the shell. The unused chambers were capable of being filled with gas to provide buoyancy at different depths in the oceans. It is these unused chambers which tend to be preserved in different colour calcite.

Celtic spirals can be traced back 7000 years, developing from observing natural examples in shells and plants. Clockwise and anticlockwise spirals represent the inner and outer evolution of the spirit respectively. In relation to the seasonal calendar these relate to the winter and summer, the year being polarised into light and dark seasons. In Celtic belief this translates to the theme in which one always moves from the darkness into the light.
