Black Raven Beads Gargoyles Collection

Gaze upon Gargoyles from around the globe with our sterling silver gargoyle beads collection. .

There lies a story of mystique, history, and resilience. 

From the ancient temples of Bali to the towering spires of Notre Dame, these guardians of stone have transcended time and culture, offering protection and inspiration to those who seek it.

In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque, usually made of granite, with a spout. Designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building. Architects often used multiple gargoyles on buildings to divide the flow of rainwater. Gargoyles are usually elongated animals because the length of the gargoyle determines how far water is thrown from the wall.

Gargoyles are said to protect those they guard from evil or harmful spirits.

In this collection, we highlight gargoyles you can find worldwide. The symbols in the silver gargoyle beads represent aspects of the specific country's culture. Use them as your power symbols. For your inner world, these gargoyles remind you that you can be free from fears and live your life as you wish.

Dare to be amazed.

Love,

Frank & the Black Raven Beads team.

Gargoyle France Paris Notre Dame

Gargoyle France

True beauty lies in the purity of the heart.

Notre Dame, France: High above the bustling streets of Paris, the gargoyles of Notre Dame stand as guardians of faith and beauty. Through the ravages of time and the trials of history, these iconic figures remind us that even in the darkest of nights, there is always the promise of dawn—a symbol of hope, resilience, and the enduring power of human creativity. 

The French gargoyle is decorated with the fleur de lis: purity. Fleur de lis is known as the symbol of the French royal family. This motif of a stylized lily with three petals is originally a medieval heraldic symbol associated with purity, the Virgin Mary and the Holy Trinity. This silver French gargoyle charm ensures that your pure thoughts will protect you.
Gargoyle Japan Onigawara

Gargoyle Japan

The only limits in life, are those we impose on ourselves.

Onigawara are installed on both ends of the roof as tiles to ward off evil spirits, allowing only happiness to enter. They also play an essential role in preventing rainwater from entering the building. Onigawara literally means ogre or demon(oni) and roof tile(kawara).
Gargoyle Indonesia, Rangda, Bali

Conquer the darkness within yourself, for Rangda also submits to the light of truth.

Rangda, Bali, Indonesia. Carved with intricate details that mirror the fearsome yet elegant Rangda, the gargoyle from Bali represents the dance between light and darkness, good and evil. Rangda embodies the Balinese belief in balance, teaching us that even in the face of adversity, there is strength to be found in embracing the complexities of life.
Gargoyle China Forbidden City

Gargoyle China

The day you decide to do it, it's your lucky day.

Forbidden City, China: Silent sentinels of the Forbidden City, the gargoyles of China stand as witnesses to centuries of imperial history and cultural upheaval. Each intricately designed creature speaks to the resilience of a civilization that has weathered storms and emerged with its identity intact, a testament to the enduring power of tradition and innovation.

In Chinese culture, the dragon represents good luck, strength, health, and the male element Yang. The dragon is unique because it is the only mythical creature of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac, and babies are born in the year of the dragon more than any other animal.
