Joji Kojima

Joji Kojima

There’s really nothing much I can say about Joji Kojima‘s work – you’re just going to have to see it for yourself. {pc} I mean……right?? Bonkers cool. Joji was born in 1987 in California and studied graphic design, photography and typography at Tama Art University, Tokyo. He’s designed pieces for Lady Gaga, and is represented in amazing shops in Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo. Each piece of jewelry is handmade by Joji and no two pieces are alike. [Description & Reviews]

Martha Stewart Crafting!

Martha Stewart Crafting!

Martha Stewart + jewelry? Yes please. I couldn’t wait to try out her enamel, and it definitely didn’t disappoint! I immediately thought of this cool pendant I picked up on one of my treasure hunts. The shape is really pretty, but I’m not a big fan of the color. You have to mix 1 part enamel to 2 parts activator, and then you’re ready to paint. The package suggested using a tooth pick, which sounds time consuming, but I think it’s probably the best way to apply. The whole process took about 15 minutes, and then I let the enamel air dry. And here’s the final product! I love how it turned…[Description & Reviews]

Andy Lifschutz

Andy Lifschutz

The pieces that Andy Lifschutz creates are a beautiful blend of the feminine and masculine, the organic and the modern. Lifschutz studied under many acclaimed designers and also attended the Sterling Quest School of Jewelry Design and Creation. {pc}  I for one am completely obsessed with Mr. Lifschutz’s work.

Michelle Hur

Michelle Hur

Michelle Hur is insane. Insanely good. Her jewelry is otherwordly, yet composed of everyday objects. Kinda like magic. BEJEWELED HARDWARE COLLAR – metal, fabric, stones. Hur recently graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with her BFA in jewelry and metalsmithing. SHOULDER PAD-GUARDS – mixed plastics, hardware BARNACLES – screws, chain, gemstones, hardware findings According to Hur, “There is potential in common, everyday objects! I see beauty in simple materials like office supplies and hardware…I carefully construct three-dimensional pieces in order to explore placement and interaction with the human body. As a jewelry maker and designer, I am excited to push the boundaries of wearability in contemporary fashion by creating “post-apocalyptic” looking jewelry that is not quite for everyday use” …[Description & Reviews]

Designer Interview: Good Daughter

Designer Interview: Good Daughter

Good Daughter was recommended to me by my fab friend Ms. G., and upon my first visit to Good Daughter’s site, I was hooked. Her jewelry is delicate with an oh-so-slight edge; they’re the kind of pieces that you could stack to infinity, or wear confidently alone. And the designer Brooke, is a lady after my own heart – “If it makes you happy to pile on all of your jewelry and wear a questionable outfit, cool!” Also her new collection’s going to include some indian chief motifs and devil heads. Yes, please. How long have you been designing jewelry? When I in college at NYU my boyfriend (at the time) and I found this charm store and began making …[Description & Reviews]
