Ultimate unisex snake shackle cuff. Every detail is hand-fabbed and one-off. You can see the fang spikes really well from this angle. Real snake skin and red Italian suede lining on this doozy. Features a bulletproof locking rail clasp that I made. This is high-end, one-of-a-kind equipment right here. DM @john_pape for purchase.
Repost @john_pape ✨ I don’t make a lot of earrings, but when I do they tend to have an edge. Available now, this pair features some vibrant cultured opal, a hot pink opal and some punk accents for fun. DM @john_pape to purchase.
#Repost@john_pape Just finished this killer owl pendant today. One of my all-time favorite pieces, this guy features a mix of faceted natural golden beryl and faceted Madeira citrine in the tail feathers, an incredible gemmy desert bloom turquoise chest piece, a carved wooden head, and turquoise accent ovals on the wings. It took forever to make this piece, but it was worth the effort. DM for purchase.

The Guggenheim museum in New York is facing accusations of animal cruelty over an upcoming show that includes an arena where live reptiles and insects will “devour each other” and a video will show dogs strapped to treadmills. The exhibit called “Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World.” features over 150 pieces of art by more than 70 artists. However, three pieces in particular have attracted criticism by animal activists. The piece that’s had the most negative press is “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other,” which is a video showing four pairs of pit bull type dogs tethered to treadmills, facing each other. This is similar to techniques sometimes used to train fighting dogs. Animal welfare activists say that the video itself is unethical because of how it was created, and the way it depicts pit bulls. The dogs were originally filmed at a live exhibit in Beijing in 2003.
