The Story Behind the Bookmark by Tokuda + Komiya

Sure, you could use any scrap of paper for a bookmark, but these are much more interesting and humorous. This could also be a thoughtful little gift for a book lover.

“A bookmark and its story, which are reminiscent of foreign picture books of the past-scary and unreal, yet fascinating all at the same time. The action of the bookmark being sandwiched between the pages of a book tells a story in itself. It is a bookmark that is caught between the real world and a fictional world. A lonely mermaid. A silly goose. A word thief.”

Stealth Watch by Daniel Jakobsson

I haven’t gone berserk over a watch in a long time, but this is so simple and cool that I’m sort of verklempt.

Capsule Necklace

“Don’t play with guns. Don’t do drugs. Instead…Toy Me! Milan designer Georgo Phillip Pecenikov (a.k.a. Gogo) comes from a family of traditional high-end jewelry makers, but he uses his knowledge to create edgy, clean and modern pieces that are a world away from the fru-fru of high fashion. This necklace takes the form of a capsule, cast in silver, plated with rhodium (the most expensive and reflective of the precious metals) and gold, and decorated with a crystal. What makes it extra special is that the capsule can be opened, concealing what? A secret message? A painkiller for emergencies? Whatever “your poison.”

100% silver chain.
