signora luna

Get your Italian designer paper jewelery from Signora Luna.  Hand-folded and lacquered to give it a protective layer.  Ideal for a first anniversary gift, definitely a conversation-piece, but not for singing in the shower.  Available on Etsy.

simone’s rose

Gorgeous clothes in the latest Simone’s Rose designer collection from Michelle aka Pyxus.  She says of this collection “I choose to use organic, fair trade, locally purchased or vintage fabrics for all of my designs.”  The Vintage Gold Label pieces in this collection are all made from salvaged kimonos, and are absolutely gorgeous.  Available on Etsy and Shrimpton Couture or you can follow her blog or be her friend on Facebook.

Cheeky New Zealand artist Trixiedelicious vandalizes crockery from all eras.  No plate or cup is safe from her irreverent calligraphy.  So if you like your dinnerware with a touch of Tourette’s, or want your gravy boat inscribed with the name of a popular poison, buy some on Big Cartel, Etsy, Felt or follow her blog.

white owl

Sister duo White Owl make their jewelery from both new and recycled materials.  Their collection is currently largely made using lace and brocades, and I love the way their Etsy shop looks like they’ve taken the best pickings from their grandmother’s attic.
