dreaming of tom

being that it is valentine’s day, and possibly being that i'm a girl, my thoughts inevitably turn to jewelry. i haven’t quite gotten in to the whole tiffany jewelry craze. maybe that comes later? normally i’m drawn to arts and crafts, unexpected details, skulls… who better to pine for than tom binns (or his jewelry, rather)? hailing from ireland, his influences include the dada movement, and collaborations with none other than dame vivienne westwood…
though he has some modern minimalist pieces that would please the j.crew enthusiast,
i love his edgier pieces that incorporate vintage jewelry and found objects.

my favorite are his necklaces, particulary the carmen...i love how his necklaces are nests of different textures and color.
his earrings are pretty neat too...
