Inspired by the elegant and organic patterns of Art Nouveau, the Squared Jaw necklace resembles the Nouveau decorative vintage borders. With the floral pattern of the jaw and the positioning of the (belcher) chain it hangs squarely on the neck.
Cast from the lower jaw of the rat and positioned into multiples, these recurring motifs create a new pattern when faced inward, transforming into floral symmetry.
The long, curved front tooth of the rat, the incisor, appropriates the very nature of Art Nouveau. With sinuous, organic curves, these designs are edgy in subject matter and elegant in execution.
