Rabbit Sculptural Embroidery Scissors Historical Forgings These rabbit embroidery scissors were all forged in the early to mid 1900's. Created from matrices no longer in existence, these carbon steel forgings were discovered in unfinished (''brute de forge'') condition. Forgings back then were created by several rapid poundings rather than one big ''whack'' as they are today, resulting in scissors that are far more graceful and delicate. Each pair has been polished and sharpened to perfection in the ''monte au moiré'' tradition. Completed one at a time, the blades are plated with chrome, the handles with pure gold. Each pair of rabbit embroiders scissers comes in a hand-sewn leather pouch. The Rabbit scissors were popularized around 1950 and measure 4'' in length.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
