I don't know about the rest of you out there in this wonderful little world of blog land, but I tend to keep a massive running list of websites with inspiring jewelry or creations that I think would make for some interesting material...I came across an email from a really rocking co-worker of mine with a few links to a sweet shop in Brooklyn, called Cat Bird that sells really great and unique creations...I especially dig the works from Digby & Iona. Check out designer Aaron Ruff's statement about his work and jewelry in general...couldn't be more spot on if he tried....
"Jewelry is inherently nostalgic. It inspires memories and evokes stories. It is bought, sold, given, received, worn, and passed on with an emotional attachment that articles of clothing or other accessories rarely bring about. Though only 1 year old, Brooklyn-based jewelry line Digby & Iona is unique in its understanding of this: All of its pieces are imparted with an instant history that will be appreciated—and undoubtedly embellished—by anyone who wears it."
I wanted to share with you some of the pieces I found interesting and intriguing.....this "Lost Love Compass" really called to me. I think that at certain point need a little 'direction' in our love lives and this quirky charm is a friendly reminder of just that. And the detail on it is magnificent!
Designed in a group named "Instruments of Pursuit Collection", this fully functional mini telescope is pretty sweet....said to be great and "suitable for either pursuing either an object of affection or of loathing"....I found this ironic and funny...thoughts?
