Shadow of Lula - Kyoko Hashimoto

From Kyoko Hashimoto's Shadow of Lula collection, this limited edition pendant is a beautiful twist on traditionally somber mourning jewelry. Each pendant depicts the silhouette of an extinct insect species hung from a long adjustable brass chain. Using both traditional and modern techniques, Kyoko has carefully hand crafted subtle layers of beauty and depth that have become time capsules in memory of the tiny lives that no longer inhabit the earth.

Each pendant is produced in a limited edition of 30 pieces and has both the name of the insect as well as the edition number on the reverse side. See available pieces in the webshop, or stop by the Leliegracht to see them in person.
