3 Super-Gripping Documentaries that Fuel Giantlion's Jewelry

BY genevieve ang 02/06/2014

Caroline Whittington Young, who masterminded the super-fly jewelry line Giantlion, is pretty hardcore about her movie-viewing experience. “My husband totally laughs at me because we’ll be watching a film or a show on TV, and whenever something inspiring comes on, I need to press pause, pull out my phone, and take a picture,” she says. Freeze-framed shots from these three stellar docs have made their way onto her bulletin boards, and their sensibilities have found their way into her line.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

Pompeii: Back from the Dead
“Pompeii has always been really fascinating to me—that it was essentially destroyed and yet so much was still preserved. You don’t see a lot of jewelry in this documentary, but there were all these skeletons they found that were covered in green, which meant that these individuals were wearing jewelry when they died and that the metals had a chemical reaction with the bones.”
The Piece it Inspired: “This is bronze and brass that I’ve combined with African beads—I like taking a part of history and being able to combine it with new things. The outcome is so different from the materials themselves.”

Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii
“This was one of the first things that started my obsession with Pompeii and history. This was early in their career, so there’s this newness and freshness to it. There are all these snippets of Pompeii architecture that they intertwine with their playing. I go back to this a lot—I watched it so much that I somehow ended up with three copies of this DVD! It’s usually playing in the background when I work.”
The Piece it Inspired: “My first collection was a series of necklaces that I hand-printed with paper. Nothing is the same; every single piece is one of a kind.”
