Designer Sehti Na is dangerously feeding our obsession with dainty and distinctive fine jewelry. Her solar system inspired collection includes delicate bar earrings, star constellation earrings, and asymmetric floating rings – all cast in 14k gold and dotted with bezel set diamonds, pearls and gemstones. I’m also fawning over her gold and diamond safety pin earrings and ‘bite’ rings – signature pieces Sehti carried over from her first line Mine Jewelry. Want, want, need . . .
Artist Amy Bennet doesn’t just stop at creating beautifully complex miniature dioramas. She paints them as still lifes, making them look like tilt shift photographs. WTF, I know. Not only is her method totally mindblowing, her most recent series At the Lake stirs up feelings of nostalgia. Love it all.
We’re forever on a search for new and compelling brands, so we were delighted to stumble upon Ganni. Unbeknownst to us, the Danish label has been around for quite some time, although it seems like only now have they been capturing international attention. It’s so wonder. Their latest collection, with delicate lace tops, wrap coats and tunics, is styled so perfectly, we’ll be placing our orders online before you can say: denim culottes.
Just when we thought Diem Chau was mad enough to sculpt intricate carvings into Crayola crayons, another crayon artist has surfaced. Hoang Tran carves pop culture’s favorite characters into the tops of crayons – and sells them online with an unbelievably affordable price tag. What a great gift for that Star Wars fanatic or Simpsons buff.
