Helena Schepens designs beautifully delicate silver and interior objects. Her fruit bowls are particularly ingenious as they serve as a foil for the naturally curvaceous fruit within them.
We have featured sound wave prints before but we have never seen the process applied to jewellery and we think it’s a great idea! Sakurako Shimizu has taken an image of the sound waves of your loved one’s voice saying things like “I love you” or “Yes I do” and cutting it into wedding bands.
I think this is a way more personal idea than getting their name tattooed into your skin.

For the typical Indian bride, wearing henna (a paste that leaves a decorative stain on the skin), is not uncommon. Since the middle ages, young ladies have been using henna to decorate their bodies in a non-permanent way, but Akiyo Henna has transformed this traditional ancient art into a modern bridal practice that gives brides a shimmer by using silver and gold pastes as well as Swarovski crystals.

Imagine all that your laundry required was for you to hang the dirty clothes outside in the sunshine. Wouldn’t that be great? In a few years, this practice might be as commonplace as using your cell phones is today. Scientists from Shanghai Jiao Tong University have found that by coating cotton material with a special mixture of titanium dioxide, nitrogen, silver and iodine, stains can be removed when placed in the sun.

I realised today that it’s been a while since I found some lovely jewellery and that my own jewellery box was crying out from neglect. So I took pity and, serendipitously (that IS a word), what should happen to land in my google reader but a post from Emma at Emma Anne Jewellers. This delightful lady from Cape Town has some seriously beautiful pieces, but my attention was caught by her latest designs, Snowflakes! Just the thing to keep you cool on a hot summers day.
The little pendants are made from silver and set with pave diamonds and to personalize your own little snowflake, you can choose to have the diamonds set in different patterns. [Read more...]
Hey everybody, I hope your Sunday is going swimmingly.
I realized this morning that we had hit March…and with that realization I began thinking about what is happening this month, St. Patrick’s’ Day. Ireland is one of my favorite places and even though I was there for only a brief time, it grew on me. I think it had a lot to do with the people I met there, they were great!
So get ready for some Irish designed gifts that will blow your hair back. I found a few examples so I thought I’d do a series of posts featuring the designers that caught my eye. Oh, and there won’t be a shamrock, green beer or short, green clad person in sight. I promise.

The two pieces below are from her “Spirit of Ireland Collection”.
Appropriate for the month of St. Patrick don’t you think. The pendants below are called Heaven Gold and Heaven, respectively.
