Rust Belt

Sean and I didn't think we were going to be able to make it to the Gift Fair this weekend, but ended up being able to make a quick stop at the Metropolitan Pavilion portion of the show. While there, we stumbled upon Rust Belt, a jewelry line made from re-purposed materials by designers Anna Bario and Page Neal. Their Alluvial collection was inspired by a series of hand-drawn maps documenting the 1944 Geological Investigation of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley. Each pieces is made from salvaged chains sourced from around the country. My favorite part of the work is their packaging.
