Aimee Golant creates Shin Jewelry because of the universal nature of the meanings associated with this letter, the 2ist in the Hebrew Alphabet. Amy explains, "it is a symbol for the Source of Life, which is the same for all people."
The shape of the letter resembles a growth in nature, it is a perfect symbol for life! Some meanings for the letter in Hebrew are Shaddai, Shekenah, Shalom, and She'ma. Shaddai is the protective aspect of G-d, in Hebrew. Shekenah is another way of saying G-d in Hebrew, which is symbolic of the feminine aspect of G-d. Shalom means peace, and Shema literally means "hear," or awareness.
