After hearing so much fabulous buzz surrounding Bauble Bar, we thought it was about time we take their goods out for a test spin. We hand picked a selection of brassy bracelets and necklaces from hundreds of gorgeous baubles – and what a fun ride it was! The very reasonably priced beetle pendant necklace is one of my personal favorites. To wear it as a bracelet, keep the necklace clasped, wrap it a few times around your wrist, and loop one of the chain links around the beetle’s legs. Double duty! Thanks for letting us play with your baubles, BB. We love them!!

Florian Schmid is a German industrial designer and the mastermind behind these sensational concrete stools. His project was inspired by a material called Concrete Canvas, concrete cloth that can be molded when wet and then hardened 24 hours later. Should we all say it together? Honestly, WTF!
