Ornamentum Gallery: Design Miami/08

Ornamentum Gallery is a Miami-based jewellery studio whose designers have produced some seriously remarkable work as part of the annual Design Miami/ showcase. The gallery was founded in 2002 and carries work by many of the world’s top jewellery designers as well as the up and coming avant garde.

My favorite piece (pictured above) is by Dutch designer Ted Noten. Titled 'Lady K Bag,' this clever merger between art and design blurs boundaries between the practical and preposterous.

For some reason it also reminds me that women do not like it when you go through their purses. Especially when you don't know them and the purse is hanging from their arm while they are walking down the street.

Some people need to relax. The police have better things to do.
