One of a Kind
Reimagined Components: This vintage GM key was found in Prescott AZ and it looks very similar to the key we use for our 88' Chevy van. We think that this era of US history feels very much like the good old days...we think. I mean, Ali wasn't born and I was a small child during the 80's but for some reason, it just feels that way. We decided to pair it with a sterling silver and red coral earring component to bring just a touch of the '60s and a little flower power to the pendant, along with a bad ass vintage eagle piece. It has been strung on a 20" 3mm gun-metal plated rounded box chain. One inch to represent the 20 years and two decades the pendant story spans.
Location Found: Prescott AZ & Quartzsite AZ
During my time in Nashville I lived in a red brick building that had a balcony that overlooked a field which as of late hadn’t been touched by industry…I drank my coffee and starred off watching the field mice dart from one bush to another. I recall narrowing in on one particularly mouse thinking about how it was just living its little mouse life when a great eagle dove with unbelievable speed out of the tallest tree surrounding the field and tackled the mouse…The eagle rolled once on the ground the mouse spinning with the bird while trapped in its talon’s. The eagle flapped twice hard and was back in the air. I watched as if glided gracefully over the summer breeze and landed back in the same branch from where it had launched its stealthy attack…I watched as it ate its breakfast and was reminded of the uncertainty of life and that without warning everything can change. But I was also proud of the eagle for showing me how to survive, how to take only what is needed and not prolong suffering. It was over in an instant and life went on…
Few things turn our heads faster than the rev of a powerful engine or the site of James Dean against his 1953 MG TD sports car or his 1955 Triumph Tiger T110 650 cc motorcycle. A car can say a lot and its paired key a small representation of who you are. Keys are incredible symbols of opportunity and dreams while Auto keys specifically can really dig into your desires.
The gorgeous shell of the ocean dwelling red coral is known to help promote transformation and a feeling of deep well-being.
