A souvenir of seaside adventures, scuttling crabs and the endless ocean, the Gilded Crustacean Hoops are created to illuminate the path ahead, fuelled by memories of days gone by. In Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, it is forbidden to move up the mountain of Purgatory during the night hours - time must be made for rest. Wear the Gilded Crustaceans to remind you to take time for the lightness of play.
