Barking Irons Shines
Borrowing the term "shines" from a 19th century slang term used by thieves for jewelry or precious items, our friends at Barking Irons recently introduced their first line of jewelry. Like their history-obsessed tees, the accessoriesâcast from 19th-century souvenir spoons from old New Yorkâdraw on the rich mythology of the locale. The pendants ($315), which are replicas of the bowl of the spoon, and rings ($295), made from the handles, are 100% sterling silver and come in two finishes: an oxidized matte black and an antiqued dirty silver finish. Barking Irons Shines are available online, as well as a number of specialty boutiques. More images here.
