Mana Bernandes’ Jewelry

Rio de Janeiro-based artist Mana Bernandes has a knack for elevating everyday objects to elegance with her jewelry. Pictured above is Clasp, a gorgeous necklace made of bobby pins, fit for a green goddess. Check out more of her innovative work at Munique and on her site. (Her toothpick and pearl necklace is featured on page 54 of CRAFT Volume 09.)

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
