We're all ruled by our addictions: the morning double cappucino; a post-work glass (or bottle) of vino; our yoga instructor. New jewelry line Cast of Vices takes the more sordid, and human, of addictive substances—like cigs, Vikes, Xannies, and cocaine—and turns them into urban artifacts. Prescription pills of all kinds, vials of liquor, a pen cap, and coke bags are wax-cast and made into sterling silver or gold charms, and a fly charm and cockroach pin give a sense of the decay inherent in addiction. We have quite a few friends who'd layer those necklaces, and that charm bracelet is perfect for the pill-popper in your life. Winston Churchill did say, after all, 'Never trust a man who has not a single redeeming vice.'
