Ignacio Pilotto is quite the talented designer. His designs range from little birdhouses to Mixx Stix to 'snowflake ice cube trays'...and of course, shout out to the sharpener ring and the cloud bank above which were my favorites Ignacio! :)

The Carrotbox has the greatest discovery! A little ring named simply 'Daisy in a pot' by 
these designers, that wilts when pressing a button underneath it. Reducing the pressure allows the daisy to rise again and blossom to 'its original splendor.' What a cute playful take on modern jewelry!

Oh, Carrotbox, you are my favorite place to frolic and look for jewelry. Loving Nga Waiata's jewelry line. It's so organic and gorgeously robust. It would look great on man's hand as well as a woman's and what more could you want from that..sharing jewelry with your man!

Home & Heart

A new take on brooches and one that delights those of us who look for new ways to immortalize our glassware and favorite tableware ceramics into new 'Still Lifes.' Enjoy Gesine Hackenberg's take on 'household' jewelry. 

Gesine Hackenberg is a German jewellery designer and metalsmith who produces work which sits between fine art and design  - or, "jewellery between objects and wearable pieces"

Her work connects between wearable jewellery and objects. Recurring themes include household crockery, which is often broken, and given a new lease of life. Her kitchen jewellery includes punched out sections of pottery, which then form the beads of a necklace.
