Jewelry Design that's out of its time!
Your source for original Steampunk, Neo-Victorian & Industrial
designs. Anachronistic technology and natural forms are juxtaposed to
create creatures and emblems of fantastical realms.
19 Moons limited edition jewelry is an eco-conscious line by
Pittsburgh based creatrix Niffer Desmond. Niffer's diverse background
spans fifteen years in assemblage art, animation and jewelry design.
Inspired by re-use, machinery and DIY culture, her unique designs
integrate these concepts into fashion.
Says the artist "I find inspiration everywhere both in nature and the
manmade. Organic forms like birds or rocks are on equal footing with
perfect circles and squares of type-keys and clocks. Anything that
visually sings! I also like the idea of giving old technology new
life, appreciating it for its beauty as much as its former function."

--=: JEWELRY LINES :=--

19 Moons offers four distinct jewelry lines each with it's own characteristics and materials:

++ PLASTINIA ++
A Universe of beauteous Plastic spiraling through space and time to excite your very eyes! These 20th century Plastinia are regaled in the finest visible spectra, given at birth such resonating names as Lucite, Resin, Acrylic and Celluloid. Let them now be your companions to guide you in their luminous ways- rugged in the face of time.
Plastinia Message: I AM HERE!

++ ARCADIA ++
“Et in Arcadio Ego” - I too once enjoyed the Paradies
Arcadia is that Earthly paradise unspoiled by man, bountiful in its pleasures both spiritual and physical. These qualities reign once again in Arcadia’s imagery of flowers, cupids, birds, butterflies and youth eternal. Comprised largely of vintage and Victorian style components, Arcadia ware depicts a garden paradise as seen in pre-industrial times.
Arcadia Message: PARADISE EARTH

++ X-MACHINA ++
More than just plot devices, these are the gems of machines past whose time has come and gone. Typewriters, adding machines, payphones, and mechanical watches have played their part in the human tech evolution, made obsolete by the ubiquitous microchip of our digital age. Now reborn to adorn as X-Machina, these once machines are a testament to their beauty and enduring design. X-Machina Message: MARVEL IN MACHINE

*NOTE* X-Machina contains most or my Steampunk designs.

++ DIONE ++
Named for one of Saturn’s 19 moons and a mysterious Goddess, Dione jewelry gleams with celestial beauty shrouded in night. The designs reference Nouveau and Art Deco, with vintage components (glass, steel, gold) dating back to that era. Influences of ancient Egypt and the Orient are similarly echoed. Adorn yourself in Dione and invoke the moonlight in all its timeless beauty. Dione’s Message: I AM MYSTERY

Thank you for your interest in 19 Moons!
