Victorian-Inspired Accessories from Paraphernalia

 - Dec 13, 2008
Culling their inspiration from the works of 19th century magicians and vintage illustrations, the work of Ms. Vanda at UK company Paraphernalia is uncanny and bizarre.

The handmade necklaces are made with printed and cut acrylic, with the designs hung on silver-plated chains. The Anatomica collection includes a heart, brain, a cochlea (inner ear), and rib cage.

Besides these slightly grisly designs, Paraphernalia jewelry ranges from the whimsical to the bizarre in the Menagerie collection, which includes such creatures as regular cats and dogs but also owls, chickens and monkeys.
