Kolme

Kolme
Kolme in Finnish means “3”. This Japanese jewelry atelier/brand was founded by three designers who met at a metal engraving school. After graduating and having gone their separate ways they met again to form Kolme jewelry. My fondness for type, of course, drew me to those alphabet earrings.

Ringolin

RingolinWe’ve made a few banners (buntings) for some family gatherings but I’m thinking this might be my next DIY project. Found this design on the Japanese handmade site, Creema, and sold under the shop name, Ringolin. Pleased that the banner has both form and function with those great “hanging pockets” that can be filled with goodies.

Ru-ukunomise

Ru-ukunomiseI’m amazed by these dog beadwork sold on the Japanese handmade site, Iichi. They are sold under the brand name Ru-ukunomise. The phone mascots and pins measure about one inch square. The artist not only creates dog breeds but parakeet breeds as well.
