Details

The favorite of the sirens. Each hollow raw bronze amphora contains a scroll with a fragment of the siren song: Sail On, Wiser. Raw bronze will develop a gorgeous patina.

Designed by futurist Rita J. King, whose family is originally from one of the islands of the sirens. Five ancient shipwrecks were recently discovered around the island, and Rita used the amphorae (ancient shipping containers) from those shipwrecks as the basis for the line. She worked with a Google engineer to design the file, and 3D prints the line in precious metals.

  • bronze
  • 30" brass chain
  • made in New York
