Design/advertising agencies (or whatever we are) don't generally get many "walk-in" clients, especially on the third floor of a nondescript building with no exterior sign. But we've had a few over the years. We were excited about Megan, our first "walk-in" swapper. She brought us this great pendant with a good story: "I decided the most creative way to get over [a previous relationship] was to learn how to pound, melt, pull, saw, and form metal into jewelry," she told us. Better metal than her ex-boyfriend, right? The best part about "walk-in" swappers is that they're generally willing to hold their own piece in front of the Green Wall, it's nice to have some different hands in the shot for once.

We got a few other break-up-related pieces lately, we'll dig them out and make this "break-up week."

Back to the Shop.
