Magical, mystical, magnetic--these are the words that come to mind when I think about ManiaMania's jewelry line. I love every piece in this gorgeous collection, "Astral Plane". The lookbook was shot by David Mandelberg, and modeled by Dree Hemingway. The mysterious, enigmatic nature of the campaign with its beautiful crystals, beaches and butterflies really transports us to another world. ManiaMania shares the following about the line:"MANIAMANIA's collections have been aptly described as mysticaladornment for modern times. Each piece is a unique sculptural creation,using elements of magic and mysticism, alongside pop culture referencesas inspiration. Maniamania's pieces always have a story to tell,or symbolic meaning, making them feel alive and powerful to wear.In an emerging niche between costume and fine jewelry, the collectionsare sculpturally crafted out of silver and brass and are adorned with roughand faceted crystals and soft suede elements. The pieces have a hand madeand original look that makes each piece one of a kind."I know what I am asking for this holiday season -- everything in this Australian jewelry line.
"Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder." ||Thoreau ||
"Abraxas Rex founded and designed by artist Paris Kain . The company resides in New York City, but their precious and semi precious stones and artifacts are discovered throughout the world. Abraxas Rex is proud to be the first fine-jewelry company to successfully use a Platinum Silver Alloy, as well as merge stones from earth and outer space.Abraxas Rex adornments are inspired by the myth of Atlantis and by Gnostic texts dating from 200 BCE. In the Gnostic religion, Abraxas is the god of both light and darkness. The Abraxas Rex collection represents the natural duality that is embodied in every living form.Definitely, I am kimono crazy for these. Who wouldn't adore wearing them on their next tropical vacation. I'll take one of each please!
