Filigree Enamel Cross Pendant …

IMG_9946

These necklaces are Sicilian in style but also Byzantine influenced. I’ve done too much research on cross necklaces and their archetypes. There are a thousand versions, all beautiful and decorative. This is exactly what I’m craving for fall. Something glossy and thick in detail. Crossing paths with this micro Western Goth Trend, these are …

Ringtisserie…..?

IMG_8300

You know the entire industry of fashion and accessories has officially run out of ideas when designers, as featured above (tag them if you like I’ve got no time and don’t care enough to…) are now making hamsters spin. I’m spinning in my head! Who needs a Carnival on their finger? Is this Cirque Du […]

Super!

IMG_5792

Today I share with you this necklace called “super” which is rendered and produced through a flat 2-d mold. This idea was pioneered (or so my research tells me…) by Margiela in the late 80′s. There could always be someone who did this before him but I just don’t know. If you have a link […]

Say it without saying it….

IMG_9895

This one time I went to lunch with my mom. She’s the passive aggressive kind who will wear a shirt like “THANKS FOR NOTHING” to a restaurant and then it’s like I’m sitting there just waiting for another fucking lecture on “how to live my life”… Well if you need a way to say it, […]

Text me….

IMG_1052

I love texting you do too right? I mean like via phones. Because you never say goodbye, you don’t have to say hello. It’s always a continuous conversation with long silences…Well at least for me. My friends complain…this one time I had a friend’s mom text me something important. The mom was like “Ji didn’t […]

Concrete Jewelry … Trend or Faux Pas

0b16d16f4c4cb21a8fd346943bc4f282

Don’t ask me how I feel certain pulses, or certain trends coming on. I just get weird vibes. Like when I just got the sudden urge to place my orchids in cinderblock. Now it has bled into the territory of jewelry, seeing concrete again of course, rendered into shapes of pearls and etc. I don’t […]

Chunky anklets

I’ve been seeing this trend of chunky chain link bracelets everywhere, and recently started becoming more interested in indian jewelry due to a commenter. I love this link configuration – these pieces are produced by a local indian villager. As someone recently mentioned, it would be hard walking in these, it sure would, but no […]

LXR Keychains

DSC_0379

For the holidays, some considered keychains…Last december, I never really thought about what would make for reasonable gifts, but this year I wanted to focus on small items that everyone can play with. I should have posted this weeks ago but the hectic holidays have really set me back! This envelope purse is derivative of […]

Wallet Necklaces

So, how was everyone’s New Years? All I can say is that I’m starting this year off slow and simple. This post and the design is pretty light but that’s exactly how I want to start off. I have some other projects I’m working on that are unrelated to this blog so give me some […]

A good handful of you might have picked up on the fact that I’ve been working on this E-shop. It was supposed to launch much earlier but several things happened that forced me to delay it. I’m glad I can finally share what I have been working on with my readers and I just want […]
