Mushimegane Books is the pottery studio of Japan-based ceramist Misa Kumabuchi. Her bold yet simplistic designs are just lovely. The glazes on the pieces are subtle and harmonious – I especially love the contrast of the wooden stoppers with the lovely hues of her hand-thrown jugs above.

Vintage Silver Aarikka Bracelet Bjorn Weckstrom Silver Ygol BraceletNanna Ditzel Georg Jensen Bracelet

Three stunning new bracelets on Hopea this week! The beautiful lines apparent in all three are what I love most about vintage Nordic jewelry.

1/ Kaija Aarikka bracelet. Limited edition, numbered 25 of 360. Finland, 1974. The inner oval and the outer rounded square of the bracelet create incredible lines and a sense of weightlessness.

2/ Björn Weckström bracelet. This early design was titled “Ygol” by the artist. Truly wearable sculpture.

3/ Nanna Ditzel designed this lovely bangle for Georg Jensen c. 1965. The minimalist style that Ditzel was known for shines in this beautiful piece.
