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.”

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

Anne Gericke

Anne Gericke is a German jewelry maker who arranges amazing, tiny, hand-painted figures in solid glass enclosed in a silver frame. It’s definitely pricey but some might say it’s worth it. I bought a necklace several years ago with two tiny business men and I can’t tell you how many times people ask me what it is. Despite its tiny size, it’s definitely eye catching.

Jelly Watch

This watch is like one of those old school holograms where when you look at it at one angle you see one thing and look at it another you see something else. To see the time look at it straight on, twist your wrist a few degrees to see the date, and angle it another way to display a range of emoticons. Why you would need to see emoticons on your watch, I’m not sure. They are annoying enough on your computer. 😉
