Little Purple Cow Jewelry, Mining The Past For Inspiration
Little Purple Cow sells lines based on treasures from long ago. The antique collection gets inspiration from hotel keys, skeleton keys and tiny diary keys. The humble and nearly forgotten typewriter is the base of the Printing Press collection that uses type-bar "arms" to form the a bib necklace or a pendant.
The company's first line was inspired by a collection of antique silverware and the classic spoon ring and spoon cuff. Spoon rings have a long history. It is believed that they originated in 17th century England when enterprising servants stole silverware to create wedding rings. Sailors would also steal silverware from the galley to fashion pieces to send to their sweethearts back home. In the Little Purple Cow Story Book collection, rings with fairy-tale-inspired handles become sweetly sentimental rings. Little Purple Cow jewelry is sold in specialty boutiques and on online at: www.littlepurplecow.com with prices ranging from $45- $320.
