this handcrafted oxidized sterling whale stick pin is entitled the great beast, created by the talented derrick cruz of BLACK SHEEP AND PRODIGAL SONS. everyone should go to his shop in the lower east side, it's called the OCCULTER. what amazes me is not only the horse hair bangle, but those sterile format paperbacks. each book is rubber-sealed with embossed titling. you simply have to rip the binding by pulling the attached metal-ended cord just to begin reading. once open, frayed binding tape may be folded into to the inside of the cover to create a clean edge or left in shreds as physical evidence of first contact. genius!
