Natural VLA Long Chain Necklace
The Very Large Array (VLA) is a premier astronomical radio observatory consisting of twenty-seven radio antennae in a Y-shaped configuration on the plains of San Agustin, New Mexico. The antennae intercept signals from the deepest expanse of space, measuring patterns of change as the earth rotates. Like a dream-catcher, these cosmic nets gather moments beyond our senses to reveal small truths from an infinite time and space.

Each item found at DECEMBER THIEVES is lovingly crafted. We work with small artisans and independent designers who follow small batch manufacturing practices. For them this means working solo with a handful of studio assistants or with small family run workspaces to bring to life their creations.
For us this means high quality unique products in very small quantities and a true dedication to the transformative power of a product made with passion. Nothing is mass produced, nothing that can be reordered on a whim, and when it runs out, it runs out.
Important to note the items you find online are one and the same as those found in our brick and mortar locations- so snatch them up while you can!
