‘rokki’ rings by Orfeo Quagliata

This handmade glass ring has just enough glitz to be quite possibly the perfect gift.

“While it might have the shape of a carefully shaped and polished stone piece, there is no doubting it’s made of glass once you see light shining through one – the colors practically come alive. And while six different color styles are available, due to their handmade nature, each rokki ring is unique ( just as each one of orfeo’s other pieces ). as such, the exact size, tone, mixture, and opacity of the ring will vary from piece to piece.”

al5010 Watch

Pardon the pun, but this watch is timeless. Designed by Piero Lissoni for Alessi, I could see this on the wrist of any man for years to come. Clean, simple design, the square face is elegantly rounded, with a full-sweeping second hand.

POP OUT PENDANT BY MELISSA BORRELL

Here’s something you may have seen before (possibly from our ICFF summary…she was at the DesignBoom showcase). These are modern and interesting and totally affordable.

These pendants are part of Melissa Borrell’s “How do you wear a drawing?” project. Taking the shape that she developed for the tree necklace and reducing it in size gives another perspective on the same graphic element. The pendant is made from photo-etched stainless steel and comes in a square of metal from which it is easily “popped” out. It comes with a chord so that you can make it into a pendant to wear around your neck. Stainless steel with rubber cord.

Cloud Necklace

Well, look at this. I just might have to buy one and have ‘bltd’ inscribed upon it. You should do the same (but only if you want to).

“A wee polished sterling silver cloud, shiny as a mirror, floats on a sterling chain. The cloud is 5/8″ wide.”

Industrial Bloom Necklace

This necklace is pretty interesting design-wise, but the appreciation grows once the material and process of how it’s made is known.

“Industrial Bloom’s flowerlike facade is contrasted by the materials from which it’s made. Shavings of Hytrel, a high tech thermoplastic elastomer, are typically discarded during the machining process. We’ve embraced the individually unique shapes emitted by this production process and use it as the focal point. Each is combined with black or orange rubber cord to offset the delicate white flower.”

Plya necklace

The Plya necklace is pretty special. It’s composed of wood and aluminum and is available in either walnut or beech.

“The Plya collection celebrates the interaction of two opposing materials: wood and aluminum. Negative spaces in wood are completed with metal accents questioning the concept of preciousness. In this work, the gem exists in the negative spaces allowing metal and even the individual to become focal points.”

Dot Matrix Watch

I think I saw this on Gizmodo.com a couple of weeks ago, and figured since I keep thinking about it, I might as well post it. It might be a little too big for my dainty wrist, but for anybody else, I’d say go ahead and get it.

Available in a tan leather wristband with yellow lights or a black leather wristband with red lights.
