In the realm of creativity, some journeys unfold at their own pace, taking unexpected turns and revealing treasures hidden in the most whimsical of places. Our Humour Line is a testament to such a journey, a collection that emerged slowly, weaving together the peculiar and the playful.
The Inspiration Behind the Laughter:
This line found its inspiration in a dear friend, Genevieve, whose imagination danced to a different tune. She had a simple request—pieces that would make her smile, like a slug ring or a squirting squid ring. These requests, seemingly unconventional, ignited a spark of curiosity and amusement within me.
Barrels of Monkeys and Tails of Truth:
As I set out to create these whimsical pieces, the monkey designs became a nod to a beloved childhood game—Barrel of Monkeys. It's funny how nostalgia often carries with it a touch of irony. In the original game, the monkeys lacked tails, technically making them apes. A little laugh-worthy fact, wouldn't you say? My monkeys, however, have always had tails, a playful twist on the tale.
And speaking of tails, in the newer version of the game, the monkeys finally have them. So, in a world where even plastic monkeys can evolve, it's only fitting that our monkey pieces pay homage to this humorous journey of adaptation.
Big Girl Pants and Meaningful Laughter:
One of the newest additions to the collection is our "Big Girl Pants" necklace. It's a piece crammed full of meaning, a symbol of empowerment, resilience, and the strength to face life head-on. But, nestled within its layers of significance, there's also a dash of humour—a reminder that even in life's most challenging moments, a little laughter can be the best companion.
Our Humour Line invites you to embrace the quirks of life, to find joy in the unconventional, and to wear a smile as a statement of self-expression. It's a celebration of the playful, the unexpected, and the wonderfully weird.
So, join us in this journey of laughter and uniqueness. Explore the Humour Line, where each piece tells a story that begins with a chuckle and ends with a smile. Because life, with all its quirks, is always better when we share a laugh.
