{     Eco Design - Studio 1 a.m.     }    

http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/11/corkcuff-thumb.jpgChristmas, the most feel-good + be-merry of all Holidays is approaching. Too bad the only feeling so far arising in me is pretty much sedated rage, because of all that excessive consumption of goods, electricity, junk that go under the name of presents, lights, wrappings. In this time of the year we should think that if we all were to act as we do in December, by 2010 we would be living in a scene of the Apocalypse Now. If you, like me, like to show your love to a limited number of special people, though: there is hardly a way out of the usual present route. But maybe you can make the present better! Studio 1 a.m. is doing it for me: they produce highly detailed (not DIY crap) jewelry with lots of character using exclusively recycled material. It is the case of the Cork Cuff, cut out from a block of cork, as well as with rest of their industry inspired collection, made of recycled shampoo bottles and industrial waist. http://www.crowndozen.com/main/archives/upload/2006/11/joujouseries-thumb.jpgI got a piece of the JouJou series and I was nicely surprised at how greatly detailed and highly engineered it is: tiny screws keep each piece in place and the final effect is very elegant and polished, miles away from a lot of cheap and not so cheap jewelry pieces made in the far east. Real quality in here! And an ecological plus value as well! Well done, good for boys and girls alike, far from the usual bordering boring present and in time for Christmas (they ship worldwide!).
