Everything You Need to Know About Rocking Architectural Jewelry   If you’re a jewelry enthusiast, you’ve probably noticed a few stark trends popping up lately -- designers using unconventional construction methods, leaving materials exposed, incorporating geometric shapes and patterns, and creating interactive pieces.

Taking their inspiration from architects and engineers, architectural jewelry designers incorporate the same balance, precision and functionality into their creations, as you would find in the construction of buildings. Designers often use architectural principles of scale, dimension and proportion in a way that challenges perception and forces contemplation.

Difference Between Porcelain and Ceramic Jewelry

What Really Is The Difference Between Ceramic and Porcelain Jewelry? The big question is: What's the difference between Porcelain Jewelry and Ceramic Jewelry?  Answer is: Not much. However, in general, porcelain is harder than ceramic and offers greater design flexibility. Even though both materials are made from clay and other naturally occurring materials fired in a kiln, the clay used to make porcelain is more refined and purified. It's the perfect raw material for jewelry to provide style, movement and a contemporary look.  At IndieFaves we have a stunning collection of handmade modern, minimal and light porcelain jewelry by Ukraine's based designer Anne Menzel.

Having spent a decade building software, I love innovation that promotes a change in consumer behavior and choices, or vice versa, which in the case of sharing or collaborative economy has completely transformed the transportation and...
