The Guggenheim Museum is offering special edition jewelry that contains actual fragments of Frank Lloyd Wright’s original Guggenheim Museum building in New York. Sold exclusively at the museum store and through their website, the line features earrings, pendants, bracelets, a ring, and even cuff links. Designed by California-based jewelry artist Cara Tilker, the Restoration Rocks collection lets ordinary people own a piece of the original museum building from 1956. The fragments of the structure were set aside during the 2007 restoration process and are mainly lightweight concrete and Gunite. Prices range from the affordable ($125) to the Peggy Guggenheim-worthy ($4350).
