Joanna Szkiela's jewellery for Montreal's Audrey Cantwell's Ovate makes me want to punch more holes in my ears. The earrings and rings have a rough twig-like quality that I quite like. Each ring depicts a different Rune. Runes are letters in alphabets predating the Latin alphabet and were used from approximately AD150-1100+.
I have to admit that when I was younger I started studying Runes as a hobby. I can say with probable certainty that this was most likely around the time that the movie The Craft came out, though I've always had a love of history. I'm not sure many girls growing up in the 90s avoided going through a "witchy" phase.
