10. Jewelry Vending Machine

You don’t have to visit a jeweler to find exquisite jewelry. In fact, the Brooklyn Museum just installed a vending machine, which sells lock jewelry crafted by Marla Aaron. Her unique pieces, which are all made in the United States, are inspired by “the majesty of bridges, the simplest of hardware elements, and the place where fashion and art converge with Old World craftsmanship.”

“Precious things should be easily accessible, and accessible in unusual places…” says Aaron of the vending machine.“…not necessarily just in jewelry stores; not just in fancy department stores.”
