Jewelry By Laura Prieto-Velasco

 Laura Prieto-Velasco creates original jewelry, pieces of art sculptural and organic. Objects that change over time, concealing their materials or construction methods and revealing an original character. Have a look at her very interesting work.  

 Artist’s statement::

I am interested in the way jewelry rarely escapes its fate of re-invention. Sometimes a piece will become part of a collection and remain frozen in a particular form for decades, maybe centuries, until it changes hands and is transformed again for one reason or another. It’s only a matter of time. My work is a reinterpretation of this history, a kind of living organism that thrives on change.

Concept Store in Amsterdam

  Sukha seems to be one of the most beautifull stores in Amsterdam. A home accessory and clothing store located on Haarlemmerstraat. The name means “happiness” in Sanskrit, and hapinness is what it reflects! White walls and floors, natural elements and recycled materials. Most of the productsare vintage or made from recycled materials.

MATTO in Italian means crazy or mad. It is also the name of the latest trendy Italian restaurant in Shanghai. It is the creation of Yenn Wong, the mastermind behind the JIA Boutique Hotels.  Apart from the food which is amazing (and recently awarded!) it is famous for it’s design style. Darryl Goveas is the director of Pure Creative International and he did not treat this 253sqm interior space like any usual pizza restaurant . Instead he addressed it with eclectic modernity, combinig industrial materials with rustic, raw materials and European-style details. Belissimo!
