Hot new Stuff for You!

Lure Earrings: Post Modern Hook, Feather and Fur

      Pairing traditional techniques with post modern style, Cameron Kelly and Joshua Olivera compose ‘companion’ earrings for the consummate aesthete. Carefully crafted FLIES are hand tied, using traditional techniques originated from salmon & steelhead Fly Fishing. First documented in 1496 by English nun, Dame Juliana Berners, ‘Treatyse on Fyshing with an Angle’ describes fly fishing as the pursuit of a balanced fulfillment life.
     The art of fly & tackle craft has evolved like everything with new materials but traditional patterns and techniques are still prevalent today, rendering a beautiful object meant to withstand rivers and streams for many years.
     Combined elements of oxidized copper chains, tusk-like shells and vintage brass finds make up these one-of-kind single earrings with double hooks for a little extra swag;) You can mix and match or pair one with something you already own!
