Blig bling!!!

The CFDA Swarovski Award Nominees Limited edition Objets d’art collection is here!

Using Swarovski Elements, the participants have created “objets d’art” to be sold at New York City boutique Fivestory from the 21 of May, with proceeds benefiting Free Arts NYC, a nonprofit that gives children in need educational arts and mentoring programs.

The challenge for the designers was to construct something personal out of fixed materials, but they have to be finished products. And look at the results!!!!! AMAZING!!!!

Jewelry in action!!!

Yes jewelry in action, these days is not only us moving non stop … maybe because of that some designers found inspiration to make what is called kinetic jewelry, meaning jewelry with movement.

And I know that sometimes a piece of jewelry with movement would turn out really bad, but not always!!!! Sometimes could be very interesting and fun to watch ☺

Here some of my favorite kinetic designs …

Ring with moveable cones

All about earrings!!

Today I what to talk a little bit about every girl and some boys companion … earrings!!!! 🙂

And they are being our companions for long time ago … ear piercing is one of the oldest forms of body modification or as I call it body decoration 😉 so we have to go back to the ancient Persia to find their origin :O

But they only become fashionable in the 1590s, in the 60s were popular between hippie and gay communities and in the 80s men started piercing both ears who can forget does days!!! J

 Here is a very graphic way to show al the types of earrings that we have now a days

Image1 = Helix – 2 = Industrial – 3 = Rook – 4 = Daith – 5 = Tragus – 6 = Snug – 7 = Conch

8 = Anti-Tragus –  9 = Lobe

 And here some of my fav earrings ….
