Created during the Great Depression and released in 1932, 8mm was developed to create a home movie format that was cheaper than 16mm. 30 years later Super 8 was released. Though still 8mm wide, smaller perforations allow for a larger and superior image area.

Not only is our silver upcycled from its special origins, but so too is the packaging! All of our Film Firsts jewellery will come encased in an original 16mm film can, for another cinema keepsake. This repurposed, sheet metal tin would have been holding real film stock from a production shot within the last year.
