Check out this brooch from our Bismuth = Love series! We made this series back in February but never posted this sweet little number. Bismuth crystals form as molten bismuth cools, but you never know exactly what you'll end up with. It was a pretty exciting material to work with!
Bismuth, atomic number 83, is one billion years older than the universe.
It is a metallic element with some interesting properties. When
conditions are just right, impossibilities become realities.
What better a metaphor for love? So for Valentines Day TOP made
(with much trial and error) a limited edition of these love crystals.
There is no way to replicate these pieces with any exactness and in fact
getting one at all could at times seem miraculous (just like love
right?). Buy one for your sweetheart, nothing is quite like it.
