When I was a child my mother had a pair of silver buttons in the shape of a man and a woman that I was fascinated with. In order to fasten them you had to join the man and the woman together. The man and woman on this Carrol Boyes nutcracker are not nearly so lucky. They will complete their nutcracking forever primly back to back. This stainless steel piece sells for $63.
Boyes is a South African designer who takes her inspiration for her home decor from the human body and sells a wide variety of flatware and furniture. The company also works with ten international charities to help raise funding for HIV, literacy, hunger and other causes.
