I’m filled with a sense of wonder when I look at the jewelry in Brooklyn artist K.M. Kotulak’s Etsy store Hibernacula. So it’s appropriate that Kotulak calls the store his “Cabinet of Curiosities.”
The handmade art jewelry combines magical elements in surprising and clever ways. I’ll admit that unlike most of the jewelry featured on this blog which I admire for its threatening qualities, this jewelry is generally about white magic and can serve as a protective talisman. But it’s unique and enigmatic, so it seemed like it could fit in with the other curiosities I post.
In a lot of the Hibernacula collection, eyes become jewels. Kotulak admits that he views eyes as a gateway between inner and outer worlds. Each eye is his own design, made with a light-weight acrylic lens and finished with bronze. I love the colors and the depth of the eyes which each seem like pools you could fall into.
