Fully Articulated Solid Gold Skeleton

13 Apr

So if you have a spare $150,000 – $250,000 lying about then this Sotheby’s auction listing might be for you. This is only 11cm long but already day dreaming about a life-sized solid gold one…

Fully articulated human skeleton in a velvet-lined coffin chased around on each side with three panels showing the course of life, one end with attributes of the arts, the other with attributes of war, the removable cover with the journey in the footsteps of the Angel of Death, surrounded by the faces of infants alternately laughing and crying.

Day of the Dead Wallpaper

13 Apr

I am so proud of my friend Emily in not only designing, but also producing, this incredible wallpaper inspired by Mexican sugar skulls. Super chic.

Day-of-the-Dead-Sugar-Skull-Wallpaper-1

The elegant design of the Sugar Skull is representative of the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations, where this folkloric skull is a ‘Memento Mori’ and has become an iconic symbol of life and death.

In this unique wallpaper, the intricately illustrated skull has been given a sophisticated twist by replicating it in gold on a rich matt dark charcoal, making it a luxurious addition to any interior.
Technical Information:

Roll size: 10m x 52cm
Pattern repeat: 53cm
Made in the UK

A literal golden goose

29 Dec

The most perfect way to present a NYE roast goose (OK so we’re using a roast chicken)… You can buy the spray online for about £7 and it last forever and a day.

Solid Gold Laces (yes really)

24 Oct

I don’t care if these laces were plaited from the mane of a unicorn being ridden by Brad Pitt spending $19,000 on a pair of laces is so insane it veers towards butterfly net territory! That said I am pretty darn convinced this is a PR story (& it has worked) and hey the silver ones are only $3000!!!

This is what Lost At E Minor had to say:

Artisan jeweler, Mr Kennedy, has created these incredible handwoven, limited edition 24k gold shoe laces. Erm., probably not suitable for ratty old Converse.

Some really different jewelery from Matab Hanna – do take a look as whilst these below are the only ones I like from the collection, the rest of the internet appears to be going bonkers over their elaborate coral reef style neck pieces.

Works on many different levels – such as being so crap.

Solid gold staples

24 Jan

Studio OOOMS thinks we can all agree that the overly bland corporate environment can use any type of excitement boost that it can get. Enter these 14 Karat goldplated staples.

Intended primarily as a form of jewelry, these luxury pieces can be applied to clothing (or just about anything) with the help of your average stapler. Of course you can also impress your boss by turning in your next report decked out in gold. He will feel you.
