As if LEGOS and sterling silver had a meeting of the minds, the Cubic Ring from Lusasul is a true work of art (and block building!) We love the off-centered cubic construct, which makes a bold statement. Shop for the Cubic Ring in the Lost At E Minor store.
We had Hoxton Street Monster Supplies in our sight last year for their tasty goods ranging from Olde Fashioned Brain Jam to Tears of Sorrow sea salt. They’ve now stocked their store with neck embellishments with pendants of unintelligible sounds like ‘UURGHHH’, ‘AARGHHH’ and ‘GRRRR’. Every piece is crafted by hand out of exquisite materials like ‘sustainably sourced human bone’, ‘slime-resistant malachite-substitute’ and ‘recently-petrified forests’ by independent jewellery company Tatty Devine.
Amanda Cargill Austin uses beautifully handcrafted borosilicate glass beads in her amazing line of jewelry and small accessories. Cargill Austin is a self-taught artist whose teenage hobby led her to become an artisan jewelry designer. She creates one-of-a-kind beads and pieces in her home lampwork studio on the Oregon Coast.
Artist Eleanor Salazar repurposes plastic and other materials into jewellery. My favourite is her series of rings made from billiard balls. All you need to do is choose your ring size and colour. If you have the balls to wear one, that is.
Liesbet Busshe fashionably transfigures mundane street barriers and roadblocks into decorative jewelry. Her precise attention to detail shows through in her elaborate sculptures – street art at its very finest.
Raffia, a plasticky string-like material, is commonly used in Asia to tie up bunches of newspapers, parcels or boxes. I love how Singaporean designer Gerri puts this unglamourous household item to chic use with these fun bunches of earrings and necklaces.
Mad about bones? And antlers? And spinal cords? Yes, we thought so. So is Moon Raven Designs – mashing nature and grit to create some pretty hot jewelry designs. Think deer antler rings, snake spine pendants… you get the drift. We’re pleased to offer a collection of new pieces in the Lost At E Minor store.
There is nothing new about skull things. But when we are talking about the handmade SKULL, we are talking about art, passion and rock n’roll. SKULL is from Brazil. SKULL is handmade jewelry by Angelica Mantuan and David Pimentel.
These hoops earrings by San Francisco based DMDMetal feature a tiny graffiti writer tagging up an old-school NYC subway car. The only thing that could make them cooler is if you could customize what the miniature delinquent was writing. Check.
Sensual laced cuffs that can be intertwined if the desire strikes.

I recently came across the work of illustrator Enzo Pérès-Labourdette for the first time at Schiphol Airport while leafing through Dutch fashion magazine, Jackie. He creates amazing illustrations, filled with vibrant colours and detail.

I came across Natalie Coleman’s fashion range a few months ago. This video was the first thing I saw and I immediately knew I’d found something special. All The Jewelry I Never Got is the name of Coleman’s 2012 SS collection, and let me tell you, this is a really fresh and edgy collection.
Kelsey Simmen is a type one diabetic and a crazy talented jewelry designer. The best part is that she fuses these things together into an eclectic collection of wearable art. She also donates percentages of her sales to the Diabetic Youth Foundation. Her condition has become her inspiration and led to the creation of works that are cast from diabetes pumps, home grown sugar crystals, and colorful flip tops of insulin bottles. She’s successfully taken a disease and turned it into something beautiful and full of hope.
It’s a bracelet. It’s a wall-hanging. It’s a limited edition piece of art. These art-inspired cuffs from Morphik are all of the above. An arts-focused design company founded with the vision for everyone to experience and own art, Morphik pieces are true art in concept, design, and function. The cuffs are designed as a ready to wear accessory piece, with a detachable art component that can be hung on the wall like a favorite painting and photograph.
