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.
When in Budapest, don’t miss WAMP. WAMP is a community event/design fair that takes place twice a month (on Sundays) in a beautiful building on Váci utca during winter and outdoors at Erzébet tér during summer.
WAMP is a hub for emerging Hungarian designers and presents them with an opportunity to show, and sell, their work.
WAMP has two “legs” (if you will) – design and gastro. The Gastro part is –as the name reveals – anything “edible” i.e. jams, chocolate, bread, wine, spirits, oils, sweets, cakes etc.Important for the gastro section is that all fine food is nicely packaged, organic and served in style (oh, it also contains cool kitchenwares – not edible really, but handy when making all these nice gastronomical stuff in your own kitchen.
Hoola hoops has nothing to offer anymore. Nothing, nada, nope. Not now when I’ve found these hoops [earrings]. Look at them. And have a look at those tiny Cognac Diamonds hanging in each hoop. Ahhh beauty is in the house.
The 14k gold hoops measure 1” long (incl. the 1.5 carat diamond) and are .7,5” wide.
This is a nice shape. It is slightly off, or odd if you will, but just enough to be really attractive. I also like the idea of three different colors at the same time. It will naturally also look really good on its own. Just one finely shaped bracelet.
The bracelets are made in Brooklyn by Fay Andrada. Material: the black one is made of oxidized copper, the goldish one out of brass and the white one is made of silver.
These earrings are called Squiggly. It’s cloud spirals on a long chain. Also available with short chain if preferred. Or in silver if that’s your choice of metal. But we are talking gold in this post so gold it is.
I do love a beautiful golden purse. In this case a clutch.
With an orange tassle.
A Paper Mache bowl made from recycled paper.
Did you know that Feng Shui believes the metal color of gold represents wealth and luck in business. Used in interior decorating, golden tone will attract financial success and prosperity. Sounds good to me. I’d better go and get me some golden stuff.
Well, I don’t know what to say. Gold, gold everywhere.
In Dubai anything can happen?
Now we’re getting down to business.
Love these Hungry Bowls.
You can drink gold, eat gold, use it for a facial mask, bathe in gold…
Have golden fingers when typing?
And last but not least; we all know what we should have invested in:
That’s right. Gold.
There just might be a reason why gold always have been considered valuable!
