I adore this range of "domestic" jewelry from Australian designer Victoria Mason, especially the pencil sharpener as I remember trying to keep the shavings perfect too. The chair and paper plane are equally glorious and random.
Earrings come in the form of Nice Biscuits, Pegs, Spoons, Soap, Tea Bags, Forks and even Toast.
"I used to try to save perfect pencil shavings. They looked so beautiful, especially if I'd sharpened a couple of different colours.
But they'd never keep.
I'd try to keep them whole for as long as I could but they never lasted for very long.
Now I can make ones that do keep.
And you can even wear them around your neck."
Implications - Eccentric jewelry collections can provide today's fashionista with the unconventional, fantastical element she seeks.
