All of our products are made in the USA.

We are dedicated to reviving archetypal symbols and images created by artisans throughout the ages. When making our museum reproductions we make every effort to be as faithful to the antique originals as possible. Our models are all hand made (not mechanically photo etched) in order to retain those gently worn qualities that make the originals so unique.

Our designs are inspired by a fascination with useful gadgetry and a love of history.  For example, brooch pins are designed to hold your reading glasses and many of the 1840’s style Victorian spine bookmarks are graced with uncommon and richly colored European glass beads, making for thoughtful and impressive gifts.

These diminutive works of wearable art have become sought-after by shoppers seeking unusual items of intellectual and spiritual value.  Most designs come with history cards.  Bookmarks come boxed with a history card.

We hope our jewelry excites your imagination and look forward to hearing from you or seeing you in our shop THE SHAPE OF LIES in Manhattan's East Village
