More modern jewelry

I've always had a weakness for jewelry, but lately it seems I search more and more often for unusual modern pieces, new and vintage. Here are the latest that have caught my eye.

Orbit pendant - hartleystudio

Koro-Koro ring

Silver pendant from Finland, circa 1968 - marishop-us


  1. The first one reminds me of the flower designs by Charles MackIntosh.

    1. Maybe that's one of the reasons I like it. At one time, before I became a "dedicated Modernist," so to speak, I was a fan of Rennie Mackintosh and had tall-backed Mackintosh-style dining chairs and several prints of work by him (The Wassail, as well as some florals) and by his wife Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh (The May Queen) hanging in my bedroom and in my bathroom.

  2. The Va. Museum of Fine Arts here in Richmond has several chairs in their collection purchased by the founders of BEST Products.
