About Little Oscilla
Oscilla is a Latin word that means 𝘴𝘮𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘧𝘪𝘨𝘶𝘳𝘦𝘴, 𝘮𝘢𝘴𝘬𝘴, or 𝘧𝘢𝘤𝘦𝘴. In Ancient Greece, the Oscilla were clay discs that hung in trees during festivals and ceremonies as offerings to the gods to show gratitude, devotion and atonement. As they swung in the wind, it’s how the word 𝘰𝘴𝘤𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘦 (to swing) and 𝘰𝘴𝘤𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 came to be — similar to how most jewelry swings on the body.
Influenced by the folklore and mythos, I decided to create my own version of
, small tokens and talismans that are devoted to portraying meaningful messages and imagery, inspired by stories and art of the past.
With a background in jewelry design from Tyler School of Art and my years of experience as a bench jeweler on Jewelers’ Row in Philadelphia, my process involves both old and new techniques to create unique designs using 3D-printing, carving, lost wax casting and traditional metalsmith techniques.
Little Oscilla is now Mage of Metals!
