EAT LOVE, we just got this great book by 'eating designer' Marije Vogelzang. We have had this book marked for about a year and then found it today in Floatsam & Jetsam. I highly recommend it for an interesting view and beautiful presentation of food.

Here is the blurb about it...
After her graduation from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 2000 Marije Vogelzang has been designing eating concepts. Her interest is in the verb ‘to eat’. Not only does she think deeply about what is on the plate (if there is a plate at all), but she also thinks about everything that surrounds the act of eating. The atmosphere, the people involved, the stories behind the ingredients, the taste and texture, sound, smell and colour of food and the way it is prepared and served. She explores the intimacy of design that actually goes inside your body and follows the journey of food from seed all the way to poop.
Thinking about all this and working and experimenting in her studio and restaurant and by creating eating experiences for her clients she has developed her own unique way of looking at eating from a psychological, cultural and design point of view.

And here is some recent press from Entertainment Weekly in the US, featuring Rose McIver. Rose is an actress from New Zealand who has a main role in the upcoming film The Lovely Bones directed by Peter Jackson. We are really excited about this movie, it's a really good book and it will be cool to see how they have a main character who is actually dead. 

Apologies... we are so engrossed in making jewellery we have been a little slack with the blog!
There is heaps of exciting stuff coming up. In the meantime here is a new piece we have added to our growing collections; The MINI Anchor Pendant. This is a great piece that is easy to wear everyday and is a perfect Christmas gift for lovers of all things nautical. Buy it here.

Oh and a sneaky preview of the imagery from our new collection...
It will be in stores March 2010.

We have been all over the country selling our new collection and a highlight was the Yayoi Kusama exhibition in Wellington, it was AMAZING and if you get the chance to see it, go!
Here are some of shots (they were taken on my phone so a little rough sorry) I probably wasn't allowed to take... 

Just another one off piece, this is my very own wedding ring, love it! Maybe we will post some wedding pics one day? C
