Cult-skulls-1.jpg

From the archives of La Specola, the oldest Natural History Museum in Europe, this Collection was crafted  from museum specimens collected during the age of discovery; an epoch where science merged with the occult.

Located in Florence, Italy, La Specola Natural History Museum opened it's doors to the public in 1775.

The museum served to house the extensive curiosity collection of natural specimens from the powerful Medici family, whose influence shaped and inspired the Italian renaissance.

Stacy was granted special permission to create molds directly from select animal skulls on display within the hall of skeletons, (some of which were centuries old).

The hauntingly macabre presence of the jewelry that results from this collaboration, resonates with the history of wonder for the exotic.

Each piece is labeled with it's  museum archival number and CORRESPONDING scientific name.
