Our New Coin Pendants Are As Complex as You Are
Raven Smith woke up on the Greco-Roman side of the bed. At least we think he did after we called upon him for his thoughts on our latest Coin Pendant edition—inspired by three iconic mythological figures.
Coin jewelry has been worn throughout history—as a talisman, good luck charm and more recently, a personalized symbol to make your own. Like most jewelry, it represents something to and about the wearer. So what do these pendants say about you? The crowned, “funniest man on Instagram,” Vogue columnist and author of the bestselling non-fiction book, Trivial Pursuits, gets to the heart of the matter. The question remains: Is it the Serpant, Winged or Terra Coin that best describes you?
SERPENT COIN PENDANT
We all know the tale of Medusa, all tangled serpent hair and turning men to stone. It was a lonely, complex, nuanced life, but sweet lord it was powerful. Harness your reptilian power with the Serpent Coin Pendant, your scaled muscles contracting, ready to strike with venom. Remember, not everybody needs to see your fangs, use them to ward off the negativity, turn the haters to stone, perhaps even corrupt Eve.
EMBRACE TOMORROW RENEWED, A SERPENT CURLING OVER YOUR HEART, NOT IN YOUR HAIR.
TERRA COIN PENDANT
You may find your life on this planet bogged down by brutal chores: recycling, blogging, squinting at the tiny picture on a private instagram account. At times, you might feel like a background extra, poly-filler between scenes, but we both know you’re the main character. Bring your sexy back with the Terra Coin Pendant, forged in fire and slung at the neck. You’re as eternally hot as this planet’s molten core, as cool as it’s wild rivers, as high as the tallest mountains.
YOU ARE A GODDESS LEANING TOWARDS THE SUN, THE RECYCLING BIN BUT A DISTANT MEMORY.
WINGED COIN PENDANT
Some of us were born to fly, speedy-boarders who ascend to the celestial realm, or at least to the front of the supermarket queue. We don’t all need wings to reach the top shelf to win, but they help. Lift your mood with the Winged Coin Pendant, inspired by Nike, the goddess of victory. Your wings may tire, seeing you touchdown for a restorative dip in the ocean, laying on the sand as your skin salts. Then up, up, up you go again. Take these broken wings and learn to fly again.
YOU ARE THE BIRDS. YOU ARE THE BEES. YOU ARE ICARUS, LONG BEFORE HE SOARED TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN.
