TOOB is a keychain made of recycled bicycle innertubes that I collect from Tel Aviv’s local bicycle workshops. Instead of throwing worn or punctured innertubes away, each one is cleaned, washed, hand-cut and buttoned – giving them a new purpose to serve and few more miles to travel.

#FridayCocktail - Mai Tai

#FridayCocktail – Mai Tai

My youngest son was born on the last day of August, five years ago tomorrow. Fortunately, for friends and family, his birthday celebration, inevitably, is also our end of summer bash. This year he has chosen a pirate theme which, in turn, has inspired me to chose a tiki-themed cocktail for the adult crowd to enjoy. And, what’s more tiki than the Mai Tai?

Brunello - Balancing modern & traditional while still possessing a sense of place

Brunello – Balancing modern & traditional while still possessing a sense of place

Ewa Śliwińska is a young Polish, Poznan-based jewelry designer whose project, The Living Points Structure, shies away from the traditional jewelry conventions of stability, fixedness, and uniformity. Playing with the ideas of fluidity and motion, she created jewelry pieces made of dozens of steel cylinders placed on nylon thread. Once put on a body, they are secured with a elastic polyethylene strand. The jewelry’s motions, much like that of a school of fish, “swim” with the movements of the body. Flexible, Fluid Jewelry Made From Nylon Thread - Design Milk
