Dooie Mus necklace

Designed in 2015

Sometimes it takes months to complete a design and sometimes it’s finished in a week. The idea for this necklace came while taking a shower. In Holland the expression “making someone happy with a dead sparrow – dooie mus – means something like “making someone happy with a false promise”. We wanted to bring that expression to life. So we made an actual necklace with a dead sparrow, which comes in a casket made out of cardboard. It’s all good fun!

In 2016 we added a deluxe version, where we made the sparrow out of brass.
