TierraCast Pewter is made in the USA, using Lead Free Pewter that exceeds both the CPSC standard and the new California law regulating children’s jewelry content. Although all pewter contains trace amounts of lead, the term “lead free pewter” is used to describe pewter that meets the stringent CSPC standard of less than .05% (or 500 parts per million) lead content in pewter. The swallow, like the bluebird, is a symbol of hope. For more than a century the swallow has been a favorite tattoo motif for sailors. It’s often a sign that land is near. During migrations that can be thousands of miles in distance, swallows are known to travel far out to sea, but would alight on boats when close to land, a welcome sign for the sailor hoping for landfall. It’s a tradition for sailors – after logging 5,000 miles at sea – to sport the swallow tattoo.
