Tale-tellers

Pamela Tuohy and Edward Novinsky design and craft one-of-a-kind, or at least limited edition jewelry. Precious pieces which always tell a story. Historical pictures of animals or miniatures adorn these little pieces of art. Even the materials carry a story inside themselves. Metals and stones are reclaimed, old jewelry reborn, but with an aura of the stories they could tell...

The lovers-eye was very popular in the 18th/19th century, were it was common to carry a medallion with a miniature of your family with you. But if you wanted a memory of your secret lover, painters produced lovers-eye-pictures, like those above. In a eye you could see the soul, the love and the passion. And if that wasn't clear enough, a little tear would give expression.
