Thai jewels – Fonthip

Thailand jewelry

Thailand jewelry

While in Bangkok I had the pleasure of visiting the International Arts & Crafts fair 2015 where many very talented designers showcased their products. I found this jeweler – Ms. Fonthip Tangviriyamet – that had a wonderful assortment of various intriguing jewelry.

Fonthip’s style is delicate and almost airy. Fantastic workmanship and you can really tell that nature is a great inspiration since it shines through in all her designs. It is corals, autumn leaves, oriental flowers, message from earth, garland, stopped motion to mention a few of her lines. My favorite is coral. And Stopped in Motion. Which one is yours?

Please check out the website at www.fonthip.com, you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Unique jewelry made of goldplated copper

Malin Henningsson is yet another talented designer. Henningsson’s sculptural, minimalistic albeit maximalistic jewelry is unique in its design and in choice of material. Jewelry portrayed here is made of goldplated copper and pink quartz.

Each piece of jewelry is handmade by Henningsson in her Stocholm studio, thus after placing your order you’d have to wait a week or two while your unique piece of jewelry is being made.

Not that I’d mind.

Baggu sale

Baggu Orchid.jpg

Baggu is having a sale. And what makes me jump of joy is that my fave leather Pouch and Baggu is on sale. Orchid. Lovely color. Happy color. The pouch was $40. Now $28. The leather Baggu was $160. Now $112. It is practically a steal.

The pouches I have I use for anything and everything. It either holds all my chords for the computer that I lug around or my makeup. Sometimes it is my clutch and other times I have my dog’s small stuff that I carry with me (you know, dog candy, dog bags, the clicker etc.). And it always works.

My leather Baggus are my spring/summer purses. Love’m all. And when it comes to the regular Baggus it holds-it-all when grocery shopping. Baggus is versatile to say the least.

XOXO,

The Baggu Fan of all times

Drip Tease teapot in gold from Reiko Kaneko –

British-Japanese designer Reiko Kaneko wants to prove that the fine bone china industry has moved on from its twee reputation. Her world is not of 18th century figurines but of modern shapes that are typically witty or simple, Japanese inspired forms.

The influence of Kaneko’s early childhood spent in Japan is apparent in her ceramic tableware forms. After studying at Central St Martins, she established her design studio in London’s East End in 2007.

Her collections are often produced by combining 3D modeling programs with centuries-old expertise from makers in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Kaneko is passionate about her production being based in this city that’s known world-wide as the traditional home of pottery and, though much of the production has moved abroad in recent decades, there is still a vibrant hub of industry that Kaneko is keen to bring to the forefront of modern ceramic design.

I love bucket bags.

I had a bucket bag once, that I bought in Africa. I used it until it almost fell apart. And then it was used, and still is, some more by my daughter. To this day, it is still around. But I feel that it just might be time to get another beloved bucket bag. And I fancy this Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. I fancy it a lot.

Venus – The Bag of Bags

Furla1

 

Ok, I have to admit that I am not much for that “ink” blue color. But, and this is a big but, I am willing to make an exception for once (hah – “for once” – what is life if not filled with exceptions?) for this lovely Furla Venus Sac.

It has its perks don’t you think?
