acme animal fun metal art

i think these funny tabletop sculptures and clocks from the canadian team of don gidley and sue parke are so much fun! i love the scratchy texture on all their handmade pieces and all the bright colors they use. you can really tell they enjoy making their delightfully whimsical collection.






find a wonderful assortment of don and sue’s work at uncommon goods, the human arts gallery, conversation pieces and maddi’s gallery.

ema takahashi jewelry

love this elegantly feminine and graphic necklace collection from japanese born, new york-based ema takahashi. it’s made of hand hammered 10k rose gold.

i like that if you look at these slightly off center some of the designs just look like loopy abstract script, and the words are revealed upon closer inspection.

purchase these pieces here, and see ema’s full collection on her website.

stamp jewelry design by clare stoker-ring

beautiful understated contemporary jewelry in sterling, gemstone and brass here by uk born, new york-based artist clare stoker-ring, aka etsy seller stamp. many of the pieces in her textural collection are named after things we find in astronomy, e.g., the constellation cuff, the shooting star earrings and the rising moon necklace.





the more i stare at the pieces the more i see the connection. there is something tranquil, light and dark, and slightly mysterious about it. just like the night sky.

see clare’s collection at her etsy shop or trunkt portfolio, cruise through her flickr stream and stop by her blog or website to say hello too!

munire kirmaci’s oh-so-elegant dual salt and pepper

we had a terrible health scare with nestle, our beloved bernese mountain dog on monday, and this week was one of the worst i have ever had. the vet first thought he had cancer but after the test results were examined by a pathologist they called (today) and reversed their grim diagnosis. he is feeling much better and we remain cautiously optimistic about his health. while all this was happening i was a complete wreck. we’ve had him since he was six weeks old and he is the closest thing to a child that we have — it might sound ridiculous but it’s the truth! anyway, while i was falling apart this week, unbeknownst to you, some extremely encouraging emails and kind comments floated in from many of you reading out there. i cannot explain how gently these small gestures lifted me up during a very brief but extremely dark period of time. even though you had no idea, you have helped me so much, and i thank you enormously for your continued interest and feedback.

i can’t believe how lucky i am to have made friends all over the world who are an active part of the weaving of this beautiful quilt, made of words and pictures, here on this site. thank you all so much for coming over, even if it’s just for a minute. and please! stay tuned for next week’s delicious tidbits of art, craft and design. good stuff coming, including a stoney end of week round up, a miniview with a terrific crafter and a great let’s chat! with a very skillful painter!
