In Singapore, mommies spare no expenses in having calligraphy brushes made from the hair of their new born or having their tiny handprints and footprints preserved in clay. And now, the latest baby fad to hit the scene amongst them – breast milk jewelry. A tiny amount of breast milk, between 10-20 ml, is sent to the maker of such accessories for processing and dehydration until the milk turns into a plastic-like state.
Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde is sucking up Beijing’s pollution and turning it into high-end jewelry. No kidding. He’s using technology that’s kind of like a vacuum cleaner to remove smog particles from urban skies. This will create ‘the cleanest park in Beijing’ where people can ‘breathe, share ideas and experience clean air again’.
Taiwan-based jewelry brand Moorigin makes the coolest flat-sheet jewelry — neck pendants, earrings and brooches — with nature and geometric designs that are so minimal, it’s too achingly painful to look at these, and then want every single piece of them.
Can you guess which ring represents wrath? Or which pendant symbolizes sloth? I’ll give you a minute. Answer key is below. Jewelry designer Stephen Webster has created a collection of extravagant and flamboyant jewelry inspired by the 7 deadly sins. The sins, composed of pride, greed, envy, lust, sloth, wrath, and our favourite, gluttony, each […]

Each piece of jewelry is made from lightweight […]
Sticking with the spooky spirit of October, what’s better than earrings that look like – yes! – blood. In all fairness, these aren’t just any old gory earrings, but ridiculously hot sterling silver pieces that just happen to have a darker theme.

Remember Shrinky-dinks? So, imagine taking that same material and having a talented illustrator create one-of-a-kind artwork on it, then fashioning the dinks into jewelry. Ridiculously cool, yes? This is exactly what Krishna Chavda, the artist behind Nanu illustration, does with her completely unique jewelry line. Using custom hand-illustrations such as dinosaurs, feathers, birds (sometimes slightly […]
Inspired by the classic arches of sacred spaces, the Temple Earrings from Is Was + Will Be features raw-brass combined with recycled vinyl beads from Africa. These entirely handmade tribal-modern pieces are available in assorted colours in the Lost At E Minor store.
The latest new treat from jewelry designer Stephanie Simek should come with its own battle cry. Introducing Spearrings: delightful warrior-chic pieces that delicately spear the ear. Available with various schemes of colorful beads, plus in various battle lengths, the spearrings are available now in the Lost At E Minor store.
I’m usually not big into recycled jewelry, but these crystal pieces that won the Inhabitat’s Spring Greening contest are pretty clever.

This is some of the most successful […]
Since when did telling time become so cool? Since Watch Design created a round of single hand timepieces – sleek and surprisingly simple to read, in spite of the admittedly baffling concept!

Every piece in the jewelry line from Gwendelicious Designs pairs vintage odds and ends with a nod to the new.

Everyday goodies with a bit […]

Enough heart to make […]
What’s more fun than blowing bubbles again and again — because they have a five-second lifespan? Wearing a cluster of bubbles around your neck that refuse to burst, that’s what.
