‘Letters from Linnaeus’ Sterling Silver Cuff
My ‘Letters from Linnaeus’ series references the work of Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). His system for naming, ranking, and classifying organisms is still in wide use today albeit with many changes. His ideas on classification influenced generations of biologists both during and after his own lifetime.
This sterling silver cuff is etched with botanical images and handwriting from Linnaeus’ many written references that still exist today.
The cuff is 48mm wide and anti-clastic which makes for a very comfortable fit. I have oxidized these pieces to give them an aged appearance.
