Thorns . three oxidized sterling silver stacking rings

These wonderful pieces are made to order by Andrea Simic, a 24-year-old architecture graduate. She is a Croatian native who grew up in the small, medieval town of Knin and is currently living in Zagreb, the country’s largest city, where she also got her degree. Her modern and geometric designs are inspired by what she sees around her in product design and architecture. She credits her creative mother as her biggest influence, and has an intense love for animals (her shop was named after her beloved bearded collie.)

I am absolutely in love with all of her designs, but here are a few of my favorites.

Find her on Twitter here.

[print of the week]

Thanks for bearing with me the last week, guys. I started a new job, am preparing for a giant garage sale and in doing so went through every box in my garage. (Why I still have book reports from 1997 is beyond me. I’m happy to say, those are gone for good!)

Well, thankfully I have for us a Print of the Week today. This week it’s a wonderful screenprint from Fieldguided based in Toronto. “Vu de l’extérieur” is the name of a Serge Gainsbourg album, and it can mean both “seen from the exterior” and “exterior view.”
From their website, “Anabela Carneiro and Geoff Piersol are the couple behind Fieldguided. Operating as a blog and a line of hand-made and artistic goods, Fieldguided encompasses Anabela and Geoff’s various interests in art, design, fashion, music, and literature.

Their blog is wonderful.

    Today we have a wee hedgehog entitled “Fall Hedgehog, flowers” by Katie Vernon (aka ChipmunkCheeks on Etsy).

    In her shop you’ll find lots of lovely, whimsical creatures but I love this little hedgehog and the wonderful colors of his bouquet! The colorful little figure in his hill of whitespace would be so cute in a little girl’s room!
