Today (via woolgathering and miscellany) I found out about the fabulous London based jewellery website KABIRI.
They feature emerging designers and
offer a unique selection of their greatest pieces.
Their wide range covers minimal engagement rings, mens jewelry and all kinds of unique bling.
You should definitely check them out here.
How rad is this Bird Nest Ring?

The next time you say that you better mean it…

mmm-rings

incredibly cool “engagement” rings by Maison Martin Margiela via oki-ni
…and you better have a ring ; )
Here we are, in the brave new world, where the ladies propose to their boyfriends.
I loved East Side Brides “ How to propose to your boyfriend” post.
If you haven’t read it already do it NOW here!
And then please come back here, if you got inspired because
Liv wants to suggest an incredible cool engagement ring for your boy.

Using brass and silver, the rings shown above are brushed for a worn appearance.
(alright I am biased, because I am a HUGE Margiela fan and the very hot suits on the site aren’t helping)

jewelry by UNO industries via supermarket

…is the main inspiration of my new collection.
This jewelry piece has kind of the same idea…
27 Gold or Silver Plated Magnets formed into a rubix cube or any number of wearable shapes.
Wear as a Necklace, bracelet, anklet, ring.

I have a similar piece of jewelry that I call my everything.
I can wear it as belt, bracelet, headpiece, necklace and i love it.

add some color part I

Did I just say I am desparate for some sunshine? The latest collection of Dinosaur is inspired by the SUN.
All this powerful yellow, orange and red shades combined with gold are instantly getting me into summer mood.
Liv loves that the collection is presented on the naked body ; )

(Go,go,go away endless German snowy winter, please, Liv is a summergirl!)

I recently found a lot colorful designs that would match perfectly with a white dress and could be worn again and again.
My first “add some color post” is about the Sydney based jewelry/homeware design company Dinosaur.
The Team consists of Louise Olsen, Stephen Ormandy and Liane Rossler. They have managed to intersect the boundaries between art, craft, design, fashion and business without pause, and have applied the same creative energy and focused vision to each new opportunity. The Dinosaurs have forged an important place for themselves within Australian design history, not only through their longevity and popularity but also through the distinctively Australian character of their work, with many of the colours and forms they use evoking the casual lifestyle and vibrant natural landscape of Australia. -Brian Parkes Curator, Object Gallery
They also care about the environment in different ways, so you can be sure you’ll support sustainable designs.

rebellious rings

…Macha is about a quiet rebellion, not necessarily‘beautiful’, but not without nobility either, rough and warm-hearted and full of ripe character. It‘s witty, tenacious and defiant with an air of old fashioned peace…’

Oh yeah! You have to like a jewelry designer that describes her creations like that, right?
For me the pieces by Macha Jewelry look all really contemporary.
The way jewelry should look in 2010, if its not vintage.
I love that there are so many finds suitable for men.
Even outside the mens category on her website.
These stud signet rings for example or the big knot rings,
would make great unisex wedding bands.
And Liv especially likes the ones that combine silver and gold. For herself.

Uhm do you think I am writing too much about jewelry?

this comment of my dear Lady WestAussieWedding was killing me:
(…)It’s hotting up for Christmas here.. We usually eat a lot of seafood and fruit and go to the beach and watch the cricket.(…)
Fruit? Beach? WTF? Christmas on the beach. From now on I really should design beach wedding dresses and rad swimwear only and MOVE my butt.
Right now Liv can only dream, and get you some beach wedding inspiration.
The Sea Of Change collection by jewelry designer DEANNA COCHRAN would be stunning to wear as a beach bride.
Its all ethical jewelry and the pieces shown above are just one of a kind. Check it out here.

let love and friendship reign forever

The Irish are well known for their rich tradtions.
One of their really nice wedding customs is the Claddagh ring.
The Claddagh Ring has remained very popular as an engagement and/or wedding ring. The symbolism is quite lovely. The heart in the design symbolizes love longed to be shared with one’s true love. The crown symbolizes undying loyalty and the hands symbolize friendship, which is, after all, the very foundation of love, with loyalty holding the two hands together.
“With my two hands I give you my heart, and crown it with my loyalty” and
“Let love and friendship reign forever” can be both found as meanings for the symbols together in this ring.
There are many legends about the origin of the Claddagh ring and true or not, the Claddagh has become an everlasting symbol of love and marriage.
Liv likes this story:

It starts with the likes of a fisherman who was kidnapped by pirates and sold into slavery before he could marry his true love that remained behind in the Irish village of Claddagh. The fisherman ended up indentured to a goldsmith who taught him his trade. Thinking every day of the true love he left behind in the village of Claddagh, he decided to make a special ring for her should they ever be united again. He crafted a ring with two hands holding a heart, which had a crown above it. It was meant to represent love and friendship.
Eventually, the fisherman (now goldsmith) was released and he returned to his village. To his great joy, he found that his true love had waited for him to return and then he presented her with the ring, which became the betrothal ring. The ring then became synonymous with faithfulness too, as they both remained faithful to each other even when separated by adversity and distance.

awww! …and they lived happy ever after… Liv loves happy endings.

unchain my heart… (or why liv loves jewelry)

Unchain My Heart is the name of my favortite jewelry collection by sidvintage.
This looks really wild! Wanna have it all! Wear it naked…ok, got side tracked….
Nancy Bennett has a solid background in the arts, worked as production designer for video and commercials, and is now handcrafting amazing
jewelry inspired by remnants, histories and old stories.

Liv loves jewelry…and most of the time I am wearing loads!
When I was little my mum was a jewelry designer, and so
Liv was the only kid in primary school that had rings on all fingers, a nose piercing (my mum had to try it on someone)
and tons of jewelry.
I got so used to it, that today I feel naked without,
and most of the time even wear it during nighttime.
That’s the reality.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Rainbow Week! Gay festivals and parades all over the world! Hooray!
My neighbours girlfriend surprised her with a visit all the way from Sydney to celebrate with her love in Berlin!
Their love inspired me to do this gay wedding post.
I guess most inspiration for my blog is from people anyway!
But I did some extra research on gay wedding themes.
I found two rad gay weddingblogs for you:
So you are enGAYged and SteadyHappy

Love and Pride is a jewellery label that supports gay marriage and also offers some information about the topic on their website.

Recommend watching this movies: Milk.The story of Harvey Milk, and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California’s first openly gay elected official and Fucking Åmål Two teenage girls in small-town Sweden. Elin is beautiful, popular, and bored with life. Agnes is friendless, sad, and secretly in love with Elin.

Check out this stunning real gay marriage featured on a practical wedding few months ago (if you haven’t seen it already!)
And now I will get me some rainbow accessories…
