Oh yes, I like this … Something meant (expected) to be broken. Have you heard the term, “stronger in the broken places”? In this case, the “Fragile Necklace” is wearable only because of the broken places.

Tomi Hirokono … My lovely friend Jenny turned me on to this provacateur … I couldn’t post this fast enough! And deciding on which images to share was difficult indeed … Enjoy his masterful ability to create and compose beauty while tugging at something deeper inside – tangling it up even.

Pick A Jewel ::: “These series of accessories don’t include jewelry.
Anything you find and put up becomes your own “Jewelry”.
Find wonderful jewelry in your daily life.” ::: I can’t say how much I love this idea. Reminds me of this ::: Originally seen at the ever marvelous Sub Studio Design Blog

“Studio OOOMS thinks we can all agree that the overly bland corporate environment can use any type of excitement boost that it can get. Enter these 14 Karat goldplated staples. Intended primarily as a form of jewelry, these luxury pieces can be applied to clothing (or just about anything) with the help of your average stapler. Of course you can also impress your boss by turning in your next report decked out in gold. He will feel you.” -SO
Title Quote: Unknown
These pieces, like a collage, seem to be narrative … they must hold a tale …?
“Only those who truly love and who are truly strong can sustain their lives as a dream. You dwell in your own enchantment. Life throws stones at you, but your love and your dream change those stones into the flowers of discovery. Even if you lose, or are defeated by things, your triumph will always be exemplary. And if no one knows it, then there are places that do. People like you enrich the dreams of the worlds, and it is dreams that create history. People like you are unknowing transformers of things, protected by your own fairy-tale, by love …” // Ben Okri
