Maldonado is a handmade jewelry shop, where contemporary meets geometric, and fun designs. Each piece is handcrafted using silver, and from what I can tell none are exactly the same. Maldonado has a large variety of pieces to choose from, such as earrings, rings, cufflinks to bookmarks, or brooches

Omar Maldonado is the craftsman behind Maldonado jewelry, and he is located in Argentina. He started out using metals and wood, but decided to try his hand at silver, and today it is his medium of choice. You can learn more about him, and see pictures of his studio here. - Sponsor Spotlight

minä perhonen


From all the artists and designers I have written over the last couple of years I believe that the man behind the minä perhonen label is probably my absolute favorite of them all... wow how I LOVE everything this genius makes, designs and creates. 

The new accesoiries line is delicate, inspiring and friendly and one of those trays really need to come and live in my house. 

And how jealous was I when I found these beautiful images of his house by photographer Anne Dokter. She was lucky enough to visit him and his family. From the images it seems like he is such a likeable guy ... style and beauty all around!



{above images by Anne Dokter}

'minä perhonen is a fashion brand working to produce clothes which do not lose their allure through lapse of time.  The name of the brand originates in Finnish as the designer sympathized with the lifestyle and the culture of FINLAND; he has traveled many times through northern European countries. "minä" means "I" and "perhonen" is "butterfly," with a wish to make many beautiful designs like those of butterflies' wings. The brand logo signifies "various characters (dots) within oneself (rectangle shape)." Just like the species of butterflies are countless, the designs too continue to increase.'

On Pinterest: 'design & poster art' by Sandi Devenny


{1.booklet cover  2. ma-chr  3. stillebenshop 4. simbolidesign 5. ffffound 6. via }

Welcome back to the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, that is the feeling I got while looking at this gorgeous and fun design and poster art board.  With these designs you can immediately transfer the look and feel of your home as you are getting back into the groove of the olden days...

Did I mentioned that Sandi Devenny from AdaLou Blog created this pinterest board... for you who don't know Sandi, let me quickly tell you something about her... a groovy working gal and mom and graphic designer/illustrator. Sandi is known for her love of art and vintage and it shows, not only in this design and poster art board but also in AdaLou Blog as that it is an inspiration for her daily life.

Sponsor Spotlight: Rand Papele Jewelry


{1. Vintage Travel Pennant 2. Points Bracelet 3. Initial Ribbon Necklace 4. Guide Necklace 5. Mushroom Necklace 6. Chevron Earrings}

Just had a lovely time visiting Rand Papele, each of their pieces of jewelry have such a delicate shape about them, though often their edges are sharp. Their Spring and Summer 2012 collection is what I have mainly featured above and it is called, "The Archer" which is a perfect name, because not only are many of the shapes arrow like, but it feels medieval, and romantic.

Rand Papele was created by Eben Papele and Judith Rand who make all their lovely pieces in a peaceful town north of New York City. You can see which retailers are stocking their products here, and glimpses of their studio, and how they create their jewelry here. - Sponsor Spotlight
