Reuber-Henning

I got a lovely email from Franziska Henning regarding her line of hand-knotted rugs called Reuber-Henning. The rugs are made in Nepal and are designed by Franziska, a trained painter who employs a very illustrative style to the designs which are inspired in part by 19th-century German cutouts and Japanese woodblock prints. I especially loved the Story line of rugs featuring silhouettes of children playing. The Scenery line is so delicately illustrated. Very gorgeous and graphic work here.

From the Story line: Sterntaler and Fairy Tale.

Violet

Okay guys. Seriously I have found my new favorite gift web site. Violet offers gifts for very specific types of people you know. And not just any gifts. Distinctive gifts, people. The website design is so easy to navigate, not to mention designed exquisitely. Gifts are photographed gorgeously and the selection is so amazing. I can’t stop looking through this. I hope you all love it. (Thanks Bonnie, for introducing me to your wonderful business!)

Alex Woo

Loved these pieces from Alex Woo. The assortment of jewelry offered is amazing… from typographic pendants to iconic shapes. I especially love the filgree delicacy of these pieces and how the cord is incorporated on the second piece shown above.

Narissa Large Crescent Fan Necklace, yellow gold with diamonds $6,046. Sterling Silver, $478. Zahrah Necklace, yellow gold vermeil on a suede cord, $548.

Ted Muehling

Swooooon. Ted Muehling. Ohhhhh Ted Muehling. I saw his gorgeous tabletop designs in last year’s Feeding Desire exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt (and in the museum’s shop) and then came across these photos for them on E.R. Butler. Everything he does is so graceful and is inspired by the graceful forms of rocks, shells, eggs and insects. Absolutely stunning. For those of you in New York, his store is downtown on Howard Street.

Moon Snail Bowl, pictured in shell pink, $1,470. Salt and Pepper Snails, $130 each. Volute Bowls, pictured in celadon, $1,610.

Kim Beury

I was fortunate to able to snag the above print from artist Kim Beury’s Tiny Showcase submission and wanted to share her work with you all. Her website shows more of her stuff… loved all the cityscapes (and I was happy to get the print of the Silvercup Studios sign in Long Island City… I pass that every morning on my way to work.) and use of color.

Silvercup, limited edition of 100. Sold out.

Jennifer Fisher Jewelry

Love these charm necklaces from Jennifer Fisher Jewelry. The necklaces are available as ready-made matched sets of charms or you can completely customize your necklace order. Personalize each charm by adding an initial or a word (as long as it fits.) and string ‘em up anyway you like. Each charm is made from 14k yellow, white or rose gold. I love the rustic rough shape and stamping on the flat charms and the lovely range of sculptural charms. (Via Outblush)

The Mischa, $970 without chain. The Darian, $1200 with chain. The Kefir, $950 without chain.

Priya is twenty-nine. She lives in New York City. She art directs advertising for a luxury jewelry brand. She loves fizzy lemonade, Ladurée macarons, Jean Schlumberger jewels, vintage fashion advertising, Audrey Hepburn movies and letterpressed paper. She also loves her work.
