THE STORY of SCRIMSHAW
Like the art of tattooing, the Scrimshaw collection modernizes the traditional beauty of hand-etched adornments. Utilizing the technique of engraving and inking illustrations into various materials, scrimshaw dates back to whalers of the late 18th century; 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. A labor of love, each piece is intricately hand-scribed by Hannah; consisting of various soft gemstones and seashells with fine, mixed metals and India ink, the scrimshaw collection features hand-carved gestures, anatomical studies, and oceanic creatures. Combining the sentimentality of each HBJ piece with the endless inspiration the ocean provides, each Scrimshaw piece serves as a symbol of protection, resistance, and nostalgia.
