lila ruby king

Lila Ruby King is a jewelery label based in both Greece and Australia.  Pieces are handmade using silver, porcelain, wood, glass, bamboo…  all with an understated playfulness and contemporary style.  The same designer sells paper products in the Etsy shop Anna Ruby King.  You can read on her Etsy profile about how she’s trying to make her business carbon neutral and if you’re really curious about what she’s up to, check her blog.

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.

Quoil is not only an online gallery, but an actual real-life gallery in Wellington, New Zealand.  Their site is an excellent springboard to New Zealand contemporary jewelery design.  There is a wide range of styles on the site, many with a local flavour, and all with a high standard of craftsmanship.  My faves include Neke Moa, Kathryn Yeats, Victoria McIntosh and Phillipa Gee (pictured).  Prices are in New Zealand Dollars.
