Bento Jewelry

My friend Jasmin recently sent me a link to what might possibly be the most amazing jewelry ever.

Tiny Bento Jewelry

These tiny artfully crafted pieces of jewelry feature different japanese treats from green tea to uni nigiri to chopsticks to tuna maki. All are individually handmade and are a wonderful mix of kitsch and class…its hard to incorporate sushi into jewelry and not come off as cheesy, but San Francisco based artist Carolyn Tille pulls it off with an elegant and artistic grace. My personal favorite is Silver Ikura Ring.

She also makes Dessert Jewlery and other pieces all of which can be viewed and purchased on her website.

Urban knitting graffiti

Knitta please! Move over spray cans and markers, theres a new form of graffiti in town and its showing the softer side of tagging.

Deputy Dog posted a blog about a new trend called knitting/crocheting graffiti. Basically crafty yarn wielders are taking to the streets with their scrap yarn and creating public works of textile art.

“Knitta began in August 2005, when the soon-to-be-Knittas were discussing their frustration over unfinished knitting projects: half-knitted sweaters and balls of yarn gathering dust. That afternoon, they knit their first door handle. Then it dawned on them… a tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from beer bottles on easy nights to public monuments and utility poles on more ambitious outings.”

To learn more about this trend and see videos of these renegade knitters in action, check out the website Knitta Please

I think I know a few statues around town that could use a warm fuzzy scarf!
