trixiedelicious

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.

yorktown road

Beautifully folded, pleated and creased bags, clutches and purses are what Yorktown Road do best.  Usually working with linen, they’ve recently produced some designs in recycled leather.  Feast your eyes on their brightly-coloured beauties in their Big Cartel store, their Etsy store, or just be their friend on Facebook.

tinctory

Tinctory is a handmade textile jewellery label made in the UK.  Eva makes some of the most original and beautiful jewellery I’ve seen online, and I was completely enamoured of it even before I found out that she uses vintage materials dyed with natural plant dyes!  The Tinctory range is available online at her Big Cartel store.  If you’re as taken with these pieces as much as I am, check out her blog for a peek into her process and inspiration.
