Golden Year Studio
Golden Year's necklace, entitled Olympia is a nod to Manet's 1863 painting of the same name. Olympia was controversial for many reasons, the main being that the nude featured a prostitute as its subject. In celebration of the beauty of the nude form, woman's domination over the male gaze, and women's rights a portion of each sale of the Olympia necklace will go to supporting these and other causes that aim to liberate and support women in their many roles.
Details: Heavy duty nickel-free Brass.
Golden Year Studio was created by Aubrey Mascali, an Atlanta native based in Seattle, Wa. The name of her shop was inspired by her 29th golden year, starting a new project that soon became her business. With an art background specifically in textiles, her pieces are both whimsical and wearable. Golden Year Studio donates 10% of all proceeds to a rotating charitable cause. Thoughtfully handmade and designed in Seattle, Wa.
