Bosquejo presents: new Furies + the Dragons series


While waiting for the release of the final pictures for the Bosquejo Hardware lookbook, let me present previously unreleased necklaces that were also used in the shoot.

Let me begin with additions to the Furies, the Hardware razor series. First up is "Eumenides". The name, which means "Kindly Ones", is used interchangeably with "Furies", or "Erinyes", which means "the angry ones" to refer to the deities of vengeance.


Next is a modification to "Tisiphone", "Tisiphone II".


Leading the new Dragons series is "Jormungandr", a Norse sea serpent who is also the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loki. I had the idea of a dragons/serpents series after creating these new pieces for a stylist commission. I think the description fits.

According to the Icelandic work Prose Edda, Odin took Loki's three children, Fenrisúlfr, Hel, and Jörmungandr, and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that he was able to surround the Earth and grasp his own tail. When he lets go, the world will end. As a result, he received the name of the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent. Jörmungandr's arch-enemy is the god Thor.


Next are the similar-looking "Fafnir" (left) and "Sigurd".

Fafnir, also from Norse mythology, was the son of a dwarf king who turned into a serpent or dragon because of his greed (dragons are symbols of greed). Full story here. Sigurd, on the other hand, is a legendary hero of Norse mythology. He was not really a dragon, but is famous for killing Fafnir. So there.


While the first three Dragons necklaces are made from a mix of stainless steel nuts, bobbins, and rings, "Zuzeca" is composed almost entirely of nuts, with some coated nickel beads.

We do not know much about Zuzeca, a dragon from American myth and folklore, except that it is also known as "the serene dragon".


The fifth Dragon (not the last since there may be more to come) is called "Fraener", which is just another name of Fafnir. "Fraener" sounds like the younger version of "Fafnir", so I used it for a simple necklace of mostly stainless steel nuts and bobbins.


The entire Dragons series is now available at Anthology, Powerplant Mall in Rockwell, Makati. "Eumenides" and "Tisiphone II" are slated for release in other stores, or you may email me for inquiries.

Now it's time again to wait quietly for the release of the Bosquejo Hardware lookbook.

Happy Sunday!
