I've been very intrigued with stacking rings. Combining these ones i found with thin diamond ones are very sweet around the finger.
The artist Victoria Mason is a talent! Check out these foodie versions for people like you and me.
This holiday season there are so many craft fairs to attend. This weekend we headed to the Plateau where the most talented ones are found. We came across these gems who's artist information I misplaced. I adore these little creatures. Imagine taking over a whole section above the mantle of your fireplace of these miniature fake taxidermy.

When I was in design school, my final year project revolved around transparencies. Industrial design school introduces you to textiles, wood, metal, plastic. Acrylic was my best friend. So when i come across design pieces like this, i salivate. I came across this photo on Apartment Therapy.

I am always keen on discovering objects that go against the grain of tradition. I am bored of engagement rings I see on every new person I meet. All the rings look the same wherever and whenever someone's hand waves past me, same colors, same shape. yawn. Oh, but I would certainly take a double take at these rings from jewelry designer Metalicious. These sweet rings are the perfect statement. Understated.

I love discovering anything vintage. Dropping a vintage design into a contemporary setting is very exciting. This website i discovered does just that. The works here fit in any modern day settings but still maintains an old school shape with an exciting new twist. My mother always preaches to me to leave the past in the past...but no matter what its past is, look now at its bright future.

Caught this on the Today's Show. A website called Formiad Design where you can submit your children drawings or even your doodles and the jeweler will transform them into real life pendants.
