High Design

The 1920s were a time of delicious excess, sharp Art Deco design, and lively lifestyle changes. Some changes were more "organic" than others, picking up steam in the 1960s and continuing to spark opinions--and even new laws--today.

Roach clips--metal holders designed to keep smokers from burning fingers on an almost-finished joint--were high in demand during the counter-culture revolution.

Portland, Oregon-based metal smith and jeweler Erin Rose Gardner draws on inspiration from these two decades that brought so many social and political changes. As an homage to times gone by, and the recent resurgence of the pot movement, she created this sleek necklace—both an elegant relic and a functional accessory, should you find yourself in legal territory. Offering a working slide mechanism and lustrous 24k gold finish, this necklace is beautifully hand hammered on an anvil and serves as a true conversation starter. Now stick that in your pipe and smoke it...or don't. Handmade in Portland, Oregon.

Erin Rose Gardner is a Portland, Oregon based studio artist whose practice undulates between craft and design; focusing on jewelry as both the format and subject of her work. She makes objects that are informed by ideas and research, and is always searching for meaning through material culture. Gardner studied metalsmithing and jewelry at the University of Oregon and upon graduation she was awarded a Windgate Fellowship, honoring the work of the best emerging graduates across the United States. The award allowed her to research mass-production in Guangdong Province in China, continuing her examination of craft, production, and sentimental objects. Today, Gardner's work is part of the permanent collection of the Newark Museum, Newark, New Jersey and has been exhibited internationally, including Galerie Rob Koudijs, Amsterdam; The Custard Factory Gallery, Birmingham, England; Talents at Tendence, Frankfurt, Germany; Sienna Gallery, Lenox, Massachusetts; Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Houston, Texas; Gallery Loupe, Montclair, New Jersey; Norton Museum of Fine Art, West Palm Beach, Florida; and Miami University Art Museum, Oxford, Ohio. She was a recipient of a 2010 Individual Artist Fellowship from the Oregon Arts Commission.

    This is a classy and stylish necklace which also makes a political statement if you live in a 'no cannabis' state. I'll be ordering one for myself after the holidays.

      I wore this product 2 days, and on the second day the chain broke - not near the clasp, but a few links down from it.

          I anticipate that my 57 year old wife will retire in three years and will be going to Burning Man for the first time then....accompanied by our then 28 year old daughter. This item is perfectly suited for that adventure.

            I was looking for a present for my best friend's 40th birthday. She's incredibly stylish and classy so i wanted something that fit her personality and also connected our deep and enduring friendship. The Mary Jane's necklace did just that. Its a beautiful piece she can wear tat is simple and elegant and yet reminds her of the fun times we have shared.

              It's a beautiful necklace! I'm obsessed with the 20's and I love that this necklace is a throw-back to that era and lifestyle of flapper. The metal used for the necklace and is well-made and the gold finish came out beautifully. The only thing though is that I noticed the sides of the pin were slightly scratched from the clasp used to pinch the pins together.
