Rose Cottage by KH: Vendor Shout-Out

When I think of these ladies I imagine Zombie Boy in the recent Mugler campaign: A dichotomy of distinct characteristics. A sophistication and touch of femininity cut with a dark undertone. Pretty silhouettes paired with the morbid.

I guess the very bones of the collection is this: You can wear Rubella jewelry in a myriad of ways, however there's always going to be something a little sinister hiding just under the surface. And that's what I love the best.

Come visit these ladies at the Kanibal Home pop-up shop on 4/9. Word around the campfire is that they'll be unveiling a bunch of new designs (I have my eye on a pretty little butcher knife necklace).

And to keep you interested, here's a bit more info on Rubella:

Rubella is a virus discovered by German doctors in the eighteenth century. It is also the alias of two artists who create (among many things) romantic and mysterious one of a kind pieces of jewelry featuring antique tintype photographs, chandelier crystals, old keys, bones, tiny knives, objects of faith and devotion, and other lovely relics which conjure up and cherish the past. Based in Jersey City, their creations can be found on Etsy, at select shops, and occasionally on the road at various craft fairs and shows. Visit Rubella at
