Unique necklace from the New Archeology collection. Sterling Silver and Gold plated bread crumble. The new Archeology jewelry collection by Eliška Lhotská examines the status of traditional values in our society, the changes in them and even their oblivion. Eliška casts a common piece of bread into metal to preserve it for the future. The bread becomes a cast piece of history which we might otherwise forget. Each piece of bread is hand-sculpted, a mold is created and then casted into the metal from the shapes of bread.
Czech designer Eliška Lhotská graduated was a Fine Arts major. She started her artistic career focusing on conceptual jewelry; creating a jewelry collection made from sourdough bread (yes you read that right!). Her inspiration came while studying in Poland, being away and missing the smell of home. New Archeology is a jewelry collection for which even a thing as simple as a slice of bread needs to be cast in metal and thus preserved for the long-term future. The bread becomes a cast piece becomes a symbol of nostalgia, reminding us of history which we might otherwise forget.
