I am absolutely obsessed with every piece by Krista R, a designer from Tallinn, Estonia. Her jewelry is inspired by costumes, ball gowns, and accessories of past centuries. I love this piece because you can add it to a shirt and shorts outfit for a casual but dressed up look. Price at $263.46 CAD, which isn’t bad considering it is a hand-crafted one of a kind piece. Just look at the intensity of the bead work.
Nervous System is a design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. Their jewelry draws from natural forms that are then simulated in computer space and use high-tech manufacturing production. The bracelet above is produced using a form of 3D-printing inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians- completely over my head but the results are great. Priced at $79.53 CAD.
Ok I lied, I couldn’t stick to just one. This is another piece by Cursive Design.
What is really cool about it is that the cylindrical form is actually made from a printed sunset image onto silk crepe with eco-friendly water based inks which is wrapped around a gold plated chain. Next door the chain hosts two wooden beads. Priced at $107.37 CAD.
It was hard to pick a favorite of Cursive Design’s jewelry. I ended up wanting to highlight this piece for its concept. It is based on American Color Field painting of the 40’s and 50’s. I like the poetic nature of translating art into wearable art. The neutral palette makes it an easy everyday wear for work or play. Priced at $77.54 CAD.
Another piece by Rada offering the unparalleled drama of a feather and bead combo in a strand necklace.
This is a great find by Explore Blog. I love the intricacy and delicate nature of the pendant. Can you guess which city grid it represents? Hint: It’s not a Canadian city unfortunately, in the meantime we can pretend. Easy on the wallet and big on awesome at $39.64 CAD.
