Each bead has a story and below you can find the stories to each of these beads.
“Tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take OUR FREEDOM!” – Braveheart
As Scottish tartan designs began to take on more symbolism, the color green represented forests and prairies. An example includes the adoption of the color as the royal Hunting Stewart tartan.
OHM has embraced the green tartan with this lush green tartan glass bead from the clan McCJORDI. FREEDOM! As you slide this brilliantly beautiful bead onto your bracelet, perhaps you will hear the distant call of a hunting horn or the strident march of the bagpipes as your clan answers the call to arms. Freedom is a precious, thrilling, and fragile thing that must be guarded and cherished.
As Nelson Mandela said, “…to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
McCTRISH HOLD FAST
“So let the world go, but hold fast to joy.” – May Sarton
Throughout history, salty sailors believed that a tattoo of eight letters on their knuckles that read “Hold Fast” would bring them good luck and improve their grip while pulling on the rigging during storms and rough weather. Sailors are a superstitious lot, and they had rituals, piercings, and tattoos to ward off many types of evil. “Hold Fast” represents the defense of one’s position securely in action, or to hold firmly to your beliefs and values, never wavering from your truth.
The Scottish tartan tradition uses yellow to symbolize crops, golden harvest, or home. Certainly, your home, and the hard work to feed your family there, is something precious to hold fast to.
In honor of this determination, OHM offers this luminous glass tartan bead from the clan McCTRISH. HOLD FAST! Perhaps, as you slide this gorgeous bead upon your bracelet, you’ll feel yourself running barefoot and forever young in a waving field of golden grain.
McCTRUDY FORGET NOT
“Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.” -JFK
In Scottish tartan symbolism, the color red was regarded as a battle tartan. When Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Balmoral Castle in Scotland in 1848, they decorated it with the royal Stewart red.
It’s a vivid, rousing, and lusty color, and OHM leads the charge with this full-blooded red glass tartan bead from the clan McCTRUDY. FORGET NOT!
What are the things you cherish that you wish not to forget? As this richly radiant bead beckons on your bracelet, perhaps it calls to your mind the most important things in your life to “forget not”: the bloodline of family, the heart of true love, the lifeforce of your creativity, your passions, your purpose. Perhaps this bead is your talisman to touch and FORGET NOT.
Whether physical or spiritual, love is indeed a good thing to “forget not.”
