fleamarket finds

So I guess I've been a bit absent lately
the recap of September? -> FLEA MARKETS !

I went to one of my favorite flea markets of the year: the one in my own little village. ^_^

... And of course: bought lots of lovely things - DUH - :D

first up in the 'usefull items'-category: these old metal number stamps, a bit rusty but that's just how I like it ^_^ and look at that nice wood block they're placed in ...



Another work-related one:
an old mini vise with small anvil
oh sooo adorable isn't it? ... I just couldn't resist :)



More soon ...

grts,

contemporary jewellery crushes - Karl Fritsch

Today I want to introduce you to another of my jewellery-crushes:

Karl Fritsch

He fascinates me by using archetype-rings and questioning these forms as well as the value of materials, gemstones and everyday-objects.

"I´m fascinated by jewellery and by the fact that every person owns and wears ornaments of one kind or another. This universality impresses me and stimulates me to make jewellery which I would like to see people wearing. Those people could be my aunts or anyone else."
