The Story of Scrimshaw

Like the art of tattooing, the Scrimshaw collection modernizes the traditional beauty of hand-etched adornments. Utilizing one-of-a-kind gemstones and hand-carved seashells with fine, mixed metals and India ink, this collection revisits and reimagines the bygone art of scrimshaw in one-of-a-kind pieces. Scrimshanders of yore created their hand-etched pieces to pass the time at night aboard their ships—often working with the current and movement of the vessel to create their designs. The longing that inspired sailors, as each night of their voyage passed, evolved into beautiful art that captured the romance of their yearning. Whether they channeled their heart’s desire or took respite from their unknown futures, scrimshaw work has always been deeply personal to Hannah, yet incredibly accessible to all familiar with nostalgia’s spell. The Scrimshaw collection is a contemporary take on a beloved artform, featuring hand-scribed gestures, anatomical studies, and oceanic creatures. Combining the sentimentality of each HBJ piece with the endless inspiration the ocean provides HBJ, each Scrimshaw piece serves as a symbol of protection, resistance, and nostalgia. Shop the full Scrimshaw Collection
