Polli Jewelry

This fun piece is made by Polli out of Australia.  (These Victorian era bicycles were called penny-farthings - the difference in the size of its wheels was reminiscent of the disparity between the penny and farthing coins.)

Polli was founded by Maja and Tess who met while studying industrial design.  When it was finally time for them to blaze their own creative trail, their wide knowledge about various materials and processes produced a line of jewelry like no other.

The pendants and earrings are made from laser cut stainless steel and aluminum.  The strength of the metals allows for some truly delicate and lively design, even with the bigger pieces which are remarkably light-weight.

They draw inspiration from their travel, and thus offer a wide range of designs.  We're a little partial to the organic, nature-based pieces - there's something special about the way they've captured a feather in a flat piece of aluminum, but the spirit of this penny necklace is hard to beat.

Come on over to the store to see for yourself.  If you can't make it, give us a call or write to us to find out what else is in stock right now.
