Thai jewels – Fonthip

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.

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.

When you want to visit WAMP (among other things because there is sooo much more to see and do in Budapest – DMKA will keep you posted)

it is a good idea to stay at a cosy hotel with beautiful design in the central parts of Pest. We would like to recommend Estilo Fashion Hotel, right at Váca utca

Cute bracelet. Especially when you wear many of them together. Where to get them? You make them yourself. Check out the link below. It tells you all about it.

Found this DIY Macrame Bracelet here

 

The sincerest form of flattery.

Isn’t this ring beautiful?! It is a piece of lava that has been polished until smooth but the pits and holes have been kept. And look at the ring band. It mimics the pits and holes in the piece of lava. Nice touch!

The ring is called Holey Ring and is made by Sharon Moore. You can buy it here
