Reverie is a visual notebook series exploring musings, daydreams and studies of practices and cultures that inspire our own. We recently collaborated with fine jewelry designer and maker Jenna Katz on the Vesuvius Chain, melding glass and gold to embody a shared love for ancient jewelry. In an ode to our collaboration and shared inspiration, Jenna kindly curated a collection of ancient chains inspiring our shared practice.
