Miniature World Ring
Renaissance thinkers saw humans as a microcosm, a miniature version of the universe.

Peace of mind they can carry wherever they go.
Who wouldn’t want to smell like the best substance in the entire world?

Think of the calories you’ll save them!
Flying can be scary for a lot of people: the turbulence, the fact that their lives are dependent on a giant tube of metal they don’t understand, and worst of all, the chance they might end up sitting next to a baby.

Know someone who’s had a lot of close calls? Celebrate it with this bullet-embedded shot glass. A strong reminder that you never know which direction the next shitstorm is coming from, and you never know what shape it’s going to take. You might as well live it up now while you can.
Back when old people were kids, shadow puppeteering was accepted as a legitimate skill. That meant holding your hands in front of a light to create rudimentary animal shapes on the wall, because there was no internet. These candleholders are a serious step up.
