The ancient Chinese legend of the red thread tells that when children are born, invisible red threads connect them to the ones whom they are fated to be with. Over the years of their lives they come closer and eventually find each other, overcoming the distance between physical, cultural and social divides.It is said that this red thread can never be broken.


Many artists have exquisitely portrayed this legend and I have truly been inspired to create an adornment to be worn as symbol.
The addition to The Artemisian this Valentines day is Piccina.co a small line inspired by this proverb and the work of another jewelry artist I've been attracted to for her simplicity...I wanted to use her work as a departure point have begun with this.

Piccina.co is it's own entity, the smaller fabric inspired end of the Artemisian it's aim is to reuse the Artemisian's unused pieces combined with various fabrics. This has ultimately leading to very different collection aesthetic. The above pieces are available online only at the moment and can be made as bracelets or necklaces that are to be tied on by the one who loves you.
