How fantastic are these earrings from Novelax? The possibilities of what you could adorn your ears with are endless. I particularly love that it puts an element of control into the hands of the wearer; you're not just deciding on what jewellery you're going to wear, you're actually taking their appearance into much greater consideration.
Novelax is a union of young Japanese designers, initially made up of three design collectives, founded in 2007 after meeting in the Netherlands at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Three years after opening their online store for domestic customers, Novelax opened up their store to international customers in 2011.
Flowers would be my immediate choice but there are some other lovely examples on the Pick a Jewel listing; scraps of fabric or even some of my own paper-cuttings would be on my list of 'jewels'.
