i heart ila&i

I first discovered the work of brother and sister design team ila&i's when I came across a beautiful locket at one of my favorite stores in Brooklyn The Clay Pot. Since then I've been lusting after their work. I think it has such a unique quality to it while still retaining a certain elegance.

One of the things I find to be most fantastic is that they strive to be a green design company. All of ila&i's jewelry is made from recycled and reclaimed precious metal. This means no new mines were dug to create any of these beautiful pieces. To see more of these works of art visit their website.

p.s. my favorite? The bottle locket. LOVE!!

I like the shapes and the roughness of the metal, but am just not into the matte black. You like black much more than I do, and you wear it well, but I always crave color!
