Bag a Bague

Out on a cold but beautiful sunny Sunday, I set out to see the oddly dubbed This is not a Design Market, featured as one of the State of Design Festival currently running in Melbourne.

Wondered why they called it that. Anyway quite to the contrary, I found wares that were absolutely beautiful…I am talking “curiosity-arousing” stuff. My favourite was the Bilingual jewellery presented by two people (whose bcs I forgot to take). You can see their designs at

My favourite was this one below, unusually comfortable, given that orthogonal jewellery are not known for their comfort, this one needs to be slid along the width and turned 90 degrees to fit onto your finger. Slid absolutely smooth as butter and didn’t hurt a bit .
