Sterling silver Empty but Awake necklace
Material: Sterling Silver, Glass
Brand: Cast of Vices
Origin: United States
From pills and cigarette butts to baggies of indeterminate utility, Cast of Vices’ edgy men’s jewelry is “born out of a desire to create artifacts out of our vices,” as the brand so puts it. Why immortalize a cockroach or snuffed-out Parliament cigarette in fine materials such as .925 sterling silver, semi-precious stones, and 14k gold? To celebrate the beauty inherent in objects and substances with less-than-noble histories, natch. Cast of Vices’ darkly humorous Xanax necklace, Coming or Going leather hospital bracelet, pill-shaped Ups & Downs rings, and other designs are painstakingly crafted in the USA using the lost wax process, then packaged in prescription bottles emblazoned with the brand’s logo. Call it self-medication for your sense of style.
