In the House of Lovers Collective is fiber artist & illustrator, Lise Silva and metal worker & Spirit Speak tarot creator, Mary Elizabeth Evans. An inspirited combination of their talents and sensibilities, In the House of Lovers is a line of handmade jewelry and wall hangings striking the perfect balance between fiber & metal, color & shine, and hard & soft.

With shared inspiration in movies like The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, Mary designs the metal pendants, sawing each one by hand and without the aid of stencils to ensure each piece is wholly unique. Lise then takes over with the fiber portion, hand wrapping Egyptian cotton thread around rope to create cord; she then knots those cords and sews on finishing touches like moonstone beads, quartz crystals, and brass. Their work has an other-worldly feel in its saturated hues, bold textures, and hand & eye motifs, which are at least partially inspired by Mary’s beautifully kinetic Spirit Speak tarot illustrations.

All together, In the House of Lovers is an alluring line of ceremonial art jewelry perfect for any time you want to feel extra special or powerful. From the color scheme to the symbology of the metal work to the energy inherent in the crystals used, each piece is the product of thoughtful concept, time, & care –
