Has summer been treating you right, chouchous? I hope you are all having a peaceful and refreshing break. Bijou Caillou is cooking up a “back to school” sale, coming up soon, so make sure to watch this space , and that one, for discounts on beautiful vintage clothes and unique jewelry. But for now, here are nine ways Bijou Caillou got inspired this month. Let’s go!
Kyratango’s prosthetic glass eye brooch
I find this brooch totally irresistible. According to the clasp and hinge it is quite old and was unboutedly way ahead of its time back then. A superbe oddity!
Found on kyratango’s page on Collectors Weekly.
Ana Teresa Barboza’s embroidery
Peruvian artist Ana Teresa Barboza takes embroidery to the next level. OK, to a whole different galaxy! Awesome, in every sense of the word.
Found on Yellowtrace.
Bijou Caillou’s flea market catch
Rhinestones, brass, wood, glass, plastic and many more. I came back from the OoiKeibajo flea market with enough inspiration to keep me busy for August, and so ready to get to make new pieces of jewelry. All systems go!
Ainsley Louise’s red and pink fashion
Red and pink are two of my favorite colors, and I always knew that they loved being paired. Ainsley Louise proves it again with this blog post that will tickle all of you fashionistas…. pink of course.
The Ball of Independence by Marc Riboud
Taken in Nigeria in 1960, this double exposure just leaves me speechless. What a masterpiece, don’t you think?
Bijou Caillou’s flower power necklace
100% vintage Japanese selected and designed for you by Bijou Caillou, this little beauty is available in the Etsy store.
This unique handmade globe studio
What a wonderful studio. The photography in this article on Creative Boom does full justice to the magic of this creative space. Handmade can look forward to a bright future, of that I am sure.
Nature-inspired jewelry by Makiko Oda
I love this extra long necklace worn over one shoulder. So unique! Makiko Oda is inspired by plants and leafs, check out her collection on this post by Decanted Design.
Those 70’s and 80’s rockstars visiting Japan
Led Zeppelin, Davie Bowie, Queen, The Stones, U2… were very fond of Japan in the 70’s and 80’s. Much fun was had, as these fascinating photographs will tell! For the fashion files for sure.
À bientôt chouchous, be the beautiful you and have a great end of summer!
