This is my all time favorite piece, a silver bangle lined with brilliant red felt and an exquisite leaf detail. Truly divine!

The jewelry pieces are created from found objects by Ducth designer Ineke Otte,  on the left are little ceramic souvenirs from Holland and right is made from laminated ivy leaves. Very clever indeed.

The magnificent ceramic rings where originally created by dipping second hand fur into porcelain… really spectacular.rings1.jpg

Jo Meesters is a really unusual Dutch designer, I really do love his “Reshaping Wood” table.

More inspiring ideas for weddings, these beautiful little gems are a fab idea, no one ever out grows cupcake. The thought of heavey fruit cake with tons of ikky marzipan simply doesn’t work. I far prefer this option. Thanks Le Cup Cake.
