Vienna is for lovers. Jewelry lovers, that is. Frey Wille is the best thing to come out of Austria sinceVienna Sausages (?! Ok, maybe he’s best thing to come out of Vienna period). His jewelry can truly be considered an art. On first glance, his colorful enamel creations look like Vera Bradley and Banana Republic teamed up for a new project. The fanciful patterns and bold styles are reminiscent of the mod designs of the 60’s, but also take on a vintage feel, especially with the Venise collection. You’ll fall in love instantly if your look is bohemian or preppy.
I Shop, Therefore I Am January 17, 2010
I just discovered Vivre.com and I’ve spent hours looking at absolutely EVERYTHING. Its extremely unique, and sometimes random collections remind me of an upscale Anthropologie. Looking through the website is like discovering the exquisite pieces from a lifetime of world travels in an archaeologist’s home.
The collection of jewelry completely blows my mind. I’ve never seen so many unique pieces. If you’re stumped for a gift for anyone, this is the place to go. I also love the home decor section and the library category. This website is the antidote to a cookie cutter shopping experience. If standing out from the crowd is your fashion mantra, you’ll be right at home here.
The shop boasts some of my favorite designers, like Matthew Williamson and Aurelie Bidermann. This is the perfect place to find fun travel items, scarves, unique home accessories, and anything else you might be searching for.
Lucky Charms December 27, 2009
I recently came across Page Sargisson’s beautiful jewelry. Her creations range from lucky charms to wedding bands to mother of pearl casino chips, all in brushed gold, sterling silver, or oxidized silver. You can find a unicorn charm with pink sapphires, necklaces and cuff links to mark a special day, a lucky number charm, and an assortment of other unique pieces. She sprinkles her trinkets with diamonds, sapphires, and topaz to mix whimsy and fun with elegant style and design.
