  • Nadia’s 1940s Bakelite and brass clip on earrings had quite a backstory! If you’re looking for a rabbit hole, read up on Jean Painlevé to find out how a French filmmaker came to create a collection of seahorse themed jewelry. We were intrigued and delighted to transform the clip ons into necklaces for Nadia and her husband Robbie to commemorate the birth of their child and her first year of life. Taking costume materials and making them into fine jewelry can present quite a few challenges and we are so pleased with how these turned out.
