Fleur-de-Lis: Finding Direction

North Wind, Beth Hemmila (Hint Jewelry): sterling silver fleur-de-lis charm


In losing your way, look for the North Wind to blow you forward and guide you in a direction that seeks to serve what is most splendid.

During the golden age of European exploration, sailors used the ancient symbol of the fleur-de-lis as a navigational sign on the compass rose to represent Tramontane (“wind from over the mountains”), the North Wind or True North.
