One of a Kind

Reimagined Components: Antique hand painted real bone house on stilts painting strung on 20" 1.5mm Italian sterling silver box chain. 

1888's Take: "There are found treasures like this incredible painting that still take my breath away when I pick them up. When I found this one I was so delicate with it. As if I hadn't just found it buried beneath a pile of mistreated and forgotten objects. It was dirty enough that I could wipe off the layers of grime with my finger... and yet, the painting survived. Once home I used gentle all natural soap and further discovered the hidden, hand painted, image beneath the dirt. The painting remains in exquisite shape after such mistreatments. I do hope the new owner of this treasure loves it as much as we do." 

~Claws, Teeth, Bones~

The claws, teeth, and bones of wild animals have historically been worn as symbols of prowess & social standing. Deep admiration was given to those who could kill the most fearsome of beasts. It's no longer a necessity for most of us to hunt for our survival, so the wearing of claws, teeth, & bones has become symbolic of overcoming great obstacles despite our fears & connecting with our inner animal as we charge forth the evolution of the spirit.

 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
