1) from ikea table to jewelry
I’m fascinated by re-purposed objects. Reading a magazine I found a DK designer who realized a necklace and a pair of earrings out of an Ikea table! It was a sort of contest, the magazine asked four people (designers, artists etc) to redesign the classic ikea coffee table – sorry don’t know the name at all. She cut the table in pieces, sanded them, painted them…made a jewelry set, here it is. Her name is Zarah Voigt. At the left you can see another person re-interpretation of the coffee table…I like the idea of using wood for jewels.
2) from zippers to necklace
This one is from Glamour Italy. Her name is Kate Cusack and she crafts wonderful jewels out of zippers.
