Colored pencil bangles by Iris Tsante | Vic Mason Pencil Shaving necklace from Oye Modern

These colored pencil inspired pieces of jewelry make me want to grab a sketchpad and start doodling ASAP! Both would make really unique gifts for an artistically inclined friend, no? I wonder how hard it would be to DIY a similar bracelet – Hubs went to art school, so there are lots and lots of old, broken colored pencils laying around the house, just waiting to be crafted into something fabulous!

PS. I’ve finally gotten around to updating my blog design – what do you guys think? It’s a work in progress, so expect more site tweaking and prodding and poking this week :-)

  1. LOVE these.. something about (color) pencil shavings always interested me for some reason. And, as I mentioned before, definitely a fan of the new design! I loved it before and I love it now. : )

  2. I didn’t see what your blog looked like before as I’m new here. However, from what I’m seeing right now I really like it! Even the name is cute. Does it have a special meaning?

    The design looks marvelous!

    & pencil-shavings-wise, I’ve always loved them. I used to want to get one of those hollow glass lamps and fill it with pencil & crayon shavings.
