“They don’t make ‘em like they used to,” says a dejected general consensus. Not jewelry nor funeral effects. Well, by Ax and by Apple, Austin-based jewelry maker Jamie Lyn is changing that. Under the guise Ax + Apple, she’s making jewelry using the all but lost art of wax molds, in symbols that have held cryptic meanings throughout the span of time. Her current collection Imperial Ash explores spiritual burial offerings historically found in tombs and charnal houses the world over. Initially driven to make old world jewelry from her stint as a props person on period films, her pieces induce the supernatural, superstitious, and sturdily-made trinkets of yore.
