Forestiere, simple inspiration

I recently discovered this Canadian brand called Forestiere designed by Sara K. MacLellan… Wow, I’m speechless. It is so great to encounter such fresh ideas at this moment in time when it is hard to find authentic uniqueness. What an incredible vision. Everything from their designs to the company’s core values is just AMAZING. I think the name in itself (Forestiere) makes understand that their main inspiration was nature and a passion for the world.

You can see the high quality in these hand-crafted, fibre based jewelry. The earthy and even pastel color tones makes these pieces a specific characteristic. One of the things that I love to see most about jewelry brands/designers is when they transmit their passion through the telling of their materials and the making of their products. Forestiere uses organic and ethically sourced materials in order to decrease their environmental impact.. How can you have so much awesomeness under one roof? I don’t know but here’s the proof that it can be done!

In my opinion there isn’t anything better in design (in all types of design: jewelry, interior, graphic… etc) than simple and clean done elegantly and right. That is what Forestiere is all about. Even their beautiful and minimalist websites follows the style of their jewelry designs. What is even a bigger plus (at least for me) is that with simplicity in mind they have a hint of tribal jewlery.

I hadn’t written in a while because I hadn’t felt inspired until I found Forestiere. So I’m serious when I say it is worth taking a look at their company and their designs. Visit their website here: http://www.forestiere.ca

I’ve already spoken before about my obsession with native and tribal jewelry. Child of Wild is an online store that sources jewelry from many parts of the world. The pieces they have are the epitome of what I look for in tribal jewelry and they have both men and women’s pieces which are magnificently curated. They also designed really cool flash tattoos. Child of Wild has a an awesome concept, as they say in their website “Child of Wild pieces are heavily researched and inspired from historical art movements and cultural rituals and ideals”. The prices are high  but reasonable, this type of jewelry is not cheap but it is definitely worth the price. I already have my eye on a couple pieces that I can’t wait to buy!

I highly recommend anyone who loves tribal and native jewelry to check them out (http://www.childofwild.com). You can also take a look at their stuff on Instagram (@child_of_wild). They have beautiful photography and esthetics, they create amazing stories to photograph their jewlery.

Amazing designs by Joomi Lim

Joomi Lim makes great unique, chunky playful designs that help you make a statement.  What is great about these designs is the combination of materials and forms, from spheres and spikes, to crystals and pearls… it all just works. Like they say in their bio, they create the perfect balance “their jewels are hard yet soft, sweet but tough, punk yet glam-”.

There are pictures of their pieces featured in this post (all images via www.joomilim.com) but make sure that you go to their Instagram account ( joomilim) so you can see their jewelry on people because it looks even better when worn.
