Bevel jewelry takes inspiration from the mytho-historical narratives of the ancient Guatemalan document Popul Vuh. That means there is a silly yet still entertaining little backstory behind every piece, this particular one involving a sacrificed head hanging from a tree that spit onto the hand of Xquic, a daughter of a lord, impregnating her with the Hero Twins. Talk about one fanciful Immaculate Conception. The “thistles” on the necklace are representative of the 7 heads that were hanging on this tree during the time Xquic visited the tree. Kind of a darling story that balances creepiness with heroicism. Perfect fodder for daydreams and nightsweats.
