King & Queen Chin Bookmarker: A Royal Story


One of the things I love the most is when I read a book and I simply can not put it down. Do you know this feeling? You simply can’t get enough, and the more you read, the more you are drawn into it. It could even make me skip my regular visit to the gym or miss my favorite show on TV – It’s crazy.

My friends and family know this, and every time I lay my hands on a really good book, they prepare themselves to see very little of me. But there comes a time when you actually have to do other things and face the real world, so I’ve decided to treat myself to the ever-so-charming King & Queen Chin bookmarker from Alessi.

Steampunk Jewelry: Victorian Fantasy


When it comes to reading material, fantasy would be my favorite choice; J.R.R. Tolkien, Jonathan Stroud, Philip Pullman and the inevitable George R.R. Martin, to name a few. As I was writing about the classic floor lamp by Jamie Young, I came across the term Steampunk – A sub-genre of a world where steam power is still widely used – often referring to the 19th century and Victorian era Britain.

It features anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them, incorporating fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. Today, I would like to share a few dazzling pieces of jewelry and artifacts, designed in a pseudo-Victorian mechanical steampunk style, that would transport you into the realm of fantasy and magic.
