I have a certain addiction, if you will, for industrial "undone" looking jewelry. My entire mantra in life is "Never let anything creative be consciously provoked or pre-meditated ".
Liza and I find that our most inspired days are the ones when we literally are "not thinking about it".B elow are a few designers that move me and make me feel excited about "everyday throw on" accessories. More importantly, pieces that give me that effortless feel about my ensemble. This is just my mood once again.
Born in Croatia, Nina moved to London to study jewelry design at the Central Saint Martins University of the Arts. She now sells her collections at select locations throughout Europe and the United States.
Lives and works in Moscow, Russia, Liza and I have had an obsession with Band Aid trinkets since designer, Lye Van Rycke released her stainless steel band aid bracelet attached to red wax leather in 03'. It quickly became our best friend bracelet. Yes, that is how we justify a $280 Band Aid. So here, I am happy to see some more well made Bad Aids (and nails) that we can snatch up.
A New Zealand based designer, I am lusting after her silver tape measure ring collection. Too cute. Simple and innovative. Love.
An Australian designer, known to use the Korean technique, Keum Boo, where she will take a pure gold sheet and fuse it to the sterling silver base of whatever she is making. Kind of amazing. Note to self... learn how to do that. This ring is like a little life on top of your hand. So strange and beautiful at the same time. I would imagine this piece would be a serious conversation starter.
