Some things Are Meant to Be…
Alice Liddell (1852–1934) inspired the children’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
“On 4 July 1862, in a rowing boat travelling on the Isis in Oxford for a picnic, 10-year-old Alice asked Charles Dodgson (pen name Lewis Carroll) to entertain her and her sisters, Edith (age 8) and Lorina (age 13), with a story.
As the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed the boat, Dodgson regaled the girls with stories, not unlike those Dodgson had spun for the sisters before, but this time Liddell asked Mr. Dodgson to write it down for her. He eventually presented her with the manuscript of Alice’s Adventures Under Ground in November 1864.”
The Human Condition is a grungy piece with a classic urban edge for those of us who like to do ‘skulls’ with a little style. Each skull is meticulously carved by hand from naturally shed deer antler, using a 300-year-old design passed down through generations of a family of carvers.
Paired with a miniature solid brass key and the Republic of You makers mark, this is a stylish conversational piece designed for everyday wear.
Adore & Adorn are a gorgeous duo of brass bangles inspired by the beautiful quote from the ancient Greek born philosopher Epictetus, “Know first who you are, then adorn yourself accordingly”.
This charming duo has been designed in with a solid brass cowry shell pendant, and was created specifically to compliment our hand carved wooden ‘Remember’ bangles, so that you can adore yourself and adorn in the process!
‘The Pattie Smith Effect’
Inspired by the plethora of boho hippy cuffs of a similar genre, we have re-designed the leather cuff with a seamless finish adding a splice of sophistication and style to a previously grungy look. The Pattie Smith Effect has been designed for both men and women, and offers an undeniable edge for those who like to keep it casual, yet step it up a little in the design department.
