ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
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.
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
