Before the oceans got in the way, some theorists say that all of the land on earth was bound together as a "supercontinent" called Pangaea. So we guess it's fitting that Space 15 Twenty would choose to call their latest pop-up shop by the same name—a group show of jewelry designers from around the world, all brought together in one disco pinata-filled room. Each brand is represented by its own wooden installation: for example, a Matrix-style sculpture of criss-crossed rope and wood boxes houses angular pieces by New York's Deka Ray, while Arielle de Pinto's crocheted chains hang like pinned butterflies on a simple wall. We especially loved the centerpiece by Confetti System, the scraps of which appear to have resulted in chunky, twisted necklaces and fringed eye masks. As is the case with most of the space's pop-ups, prices are definitely steeper than your standard Urban Outfitters fare—we'll be interested to see how many of these designers enter into lower-priced collaborations with the brand after the Pangaea splits.
