Wild Life Subdued
Ancient Etruscans, Romans, Egyptians, even prim and proper Victorians had a yen to connect with their primitive alter ego by including snakes, leopards, tigers even exotic bugs (those wacky Victorians) in their favorite jewelry.
A more contemporary take on this wild animal love is from Miriam Salat who figured out how to draw the best of the best from vintage jewelry components into a modern sensibility to thrill trend-setting jewelry fans. Enjoy the view--no cage required.
