File this under ‘Coming Soon’. I couldn’t find out much about ILIVEHERE. All I know is that it’s based in Greece and all of their products are handmade. Not sure when the collection will be available for online purchase, but these were just too fab for me not to share. Bookmark the site and let’s see what the future holds for ILIVEHERE. As soon as I get more info, I’ll be sure to pass it on. You can follow them on Facebook as well.
I’ve noticed a trend developing in handmade jewelry over the past year or so: the use of more industrial elements in design. Everything from untreated copper to what’s commonly known as ‘bungee cord’ material is being to create more substantial pieces. It appears that ILIVEHERE is taking that route. I like these pieces; they have a deliberate heft to them that gives them a more substantive feel; these certainly aren’t throw away pieces. It will be interesting to see where this trend will take us. With the handmade community, one never knows but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be great.
