waveform rings

My boyfriend showed me those rings. They are so cool!
Waveform Series is the laser-cut shapes of the waveform of the sound in sound editing software environment. The artist that created the rings used some human sound such as yawn, atchoum, giggle, wow, and the sound of church bell.

french press

French Press was started in 2006 by Shelly Bronson. Her background in both Print Design and Printmaking made for a natural transition into Letterpress Printing.
Each piece is hand-fed into our press. Letterpress is know for yielding beautiful impressions and is revered for its inconsistencies. Each piece will have very very slight differences due to the nature of the printing. If you are looking for flawless printing, letterpress is not your answer.

Forget near and far, the time has come to be now-sighted. Sundays are red, the rest are black - a minor detail. Test your vision but keep in mind these days are numbered. This is awesome. Made by Numbered Type.

-3 to the 2009

Here a beautiful limited edition desktop calendar.
It comes with an introduction explaining each month's image, eg January - If you plan on sailing the seven seas, take a tip from ancient mariners and wear a sprig of thyme around your neck for protection against sea monsters. The calendar is hand silkscreen printed onto recycled boxboard using hand-mixed inks to produce an original colour palette. Each month is separately printed with some months having as many as four separate passes, one of the colours being unique to that month, making all pages exclusive and individual.
You can

I recently came across a few photos of her apartment posted on Design Sponge's Sneak Peeks column and just love the way she displays her collections of found objects and artwork throughout her home. You too can get the look with these great items on Etsy.
