Literary jewels by Jeremy May

Well i love my books but i would have never thought of wearing them as accessories ... If you wonder how that is possible, Jeremy May has the answer: Littlefly jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.

I found this blog that decided not to let that passer by that catches your eye, to just..pass by - so she photographs them - face and legs.

Here's some photographs by Romanian artist Florin Cristescu. They kind of match the mood I'm in...
I like the geometry of his compositions, the powerful lines ... they seem to make the world feel like this abstract space in which humans are just an unexpected appearance.

I just couldn't help myself from posting another video of Sarah Doyle. I like this one 'cause it reminds me of the plastic bag scene from the film American Beauty.

Ghost from Sarah Doyle on Vimeo.

"And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in. "

wallpaper in transition

Danish textile designer Lene Toni Kjeld of Wall Decoration presents a new collection of wallpaper designs called Meta One.
The cool thing about it is the concept of blending patterns : "The collection consists of 8 patterns, including 4 hybrids. By means of transitionwallpaper, so called hybrids, it is possible to combine 2 different repeat patterns. And this is what makes Wall Decoration a special collection. By blending 2 patterns, or even more, you can decorate your home in a more individual way, and bring up different atmospheres." enjoy more here.
