Modern Relics Atelier Opens
Seeking treasures as a kid often involved raiders, lost arks, and a dude named Indy.
Now that you’ve both grown up (and wear earrings), avoid the snake pits and venture into Modern Relics for mementos of histories past.
The Inner Richmond’s new Victoriana-meets-Tim Burton fantasyland of jewelry and other oddments belongs to local designer Alix Blüh, who shows her exquisite creations (and those of others) in rustic antique display cases.
Though they appear to be centuries old, Blüh’s pieces are handmade using her signature wax carving technique. You’ll find earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets in gold and silver adorned with delicate charms, chains, and motifs reminiscent of ancient artifacts (and lots of birds).
