Kanibal & Co. is my favorite shop in Jersey City. I came across it soon after moving here a few years ago, and we became fast friends. My work feels right at home there, and it has become the exclusive spot to find Arcos in the JC area. So I was psyched when the owner, Kristen, approached me about designing a small collection just for Kanibal. We started off with a shared love of Victoriana, lovingly worn vintage estate jewelry, and the beauty of the macabre. What came out of our collaboration is a perfect blend of the Arcos and Kanibal aesthetics.
I decided to mainly work in antiqued brass with rough, natural rose cut diamonds. It gives the collection the feeling of acquired age, like little uncovered treasures. Each piece is available to be made in sterling silver or 14K gold by request. I've since been adding some work in 10K and 14K gold, and look forward to developing the collection further. Everything you see here can be purchased at the Kanibal & Co. store at 197 Montgomery Street in Jersey City, and most of the current collection is also available to order through their website at shopkanibal.com.
