I started celebrating my 53rd birthday (it's today) a little early by ordering a few things for myself including some books which I mentioned, and this silver necklace and earrings with the stylized phoenix.

Some material on the phoenix:

Wikipedia - Phoenix - Phoenix

Japanese or Chinese phoenix

Chinese or Japanese - fenghuang or houou

Somewhere there are Native American stories and meanings connected to the phoenix, but I can't find a reasonable source.

And which version, myth, association or symbolism do I like best? Why, all of them, of course.
