Early 1900s Glass Scarab Ring, 10K Gold, Inscribed “12/18 All alone" $425
The inscription reads “12/18  All alone;” the numbers are ostensibly for December of 1918. The “all alone” is so intriguing. Maybe an inside joke between the giver and the receiver. But there’s something about the combination of the scarab’s symbolism of rebirth and the existential message inside that suggests something weightier and more peculiar. But we’ll never know what it means, which is why I love finding jewelry with odd old inscriptions— you have to make your own meaning.

Homage to William Morris

This was obviously a labour of love. An ornamental poster by hungarian designer, Boglárka Nádi. The type used has been customised from Black Swan by John Bomparte to be connected into the pattern-work.

Did you spot the birds and rabbits between the floral motifs?

The bones of the skull, exploded and mounted. 

Though we often think of the cranium as a single hollow bone, this is not in fact the case. Indeed, at one point in your life, these bones existed as entirely separate, independent structures. 

Through your early years, these unconnected bones joined together in your head to form that single, rigid cage. 

The work of Ryan Matthew Cohn, pictured, shows the effect when the connecting sutures are unstitched and the parts brought apart once more. The serrated edges of some bones, visible particularly in the second image, are the faults along which these almost completely inflexible joints once existed.
