This collection was inspired by the Victorian custom of “curiosity cabinets” or “wonder cabinets” which were private collections of all manner of objects from the fields of natural history, ethnography, archaeology, art, and religion. These portable modern incarnations are available in nine styles: Rorschach in Gold, Hidden Forest, Akupara, Allium, Ornithology, Alae, Lepidoptera, Entomology, and Tenochtitlan. Each pendant is created using two glass microscope slides edged in chunky lead-free solder and finished with uniquely placed clasps. Taking the name “Tenochtitlan” from the Aztec legend about the founding of that fabled city on the spot where an eagle feasting on a snake landed on a cactus, these amoeba-like necklaces are crafted from roundels of spines removed from a desiccated cactus plant. Safely encased in glass, these abstract pieces resemble modern art and are sure to bring an air of edgy sophistication to any occasions.
