Our Long Eye they go

We sold more than a dozen of these this week to one of our construction guys, and I couldn't let them leave without getting a's like when mom & dad want a photo of their little son or daughter right before they send them off to school - do a good job, our precious, large eye bolts!

1'-8  x 12" Eye Bolt - it's a foot long - we're so proud.

Woven Hexrugs

MSN relaunched and to draw some attention they collaborated with Design Milk to showcase 4 artists and designers that  "...embody the same design, content and functional philosophies as the new"  (The words were taken from this article.)

The artist I liked best is Aurelie Tu from Crafted Systems. She weaves felt and makes carpets, vases, wall hangings and other interesting stuff.  The photo below is what caught our eye!
(Photo from here.)
I think this is the beginning stage of one of her Hexrugs. It is not done but I would leave it just like that because I love seeing that shape. 

Although, I must admit, they are quite beautiful when they are completed too.

It's so pretty, I don't think I'd let anyone walk on it.

More Stained Glass for Summer

But in the form of jewelry!
(Who thought of this?! I gotta look Etta Kostick up.)
I think stained glass bracelets shaped like a HEX NUT would be the perfect summer accessory.

I found them at - they always have clever/great stuff.

Phil Shaw's Art with Fasteners

There is an artist in England named Phil Shaw and he has a huge resume of lots and lots of wonderful projects - you can check them out here: PHIL SHAW ONLINE.  What caught our eye was of course some fastener related ones - which we think deserve a mention.

Title: Screw driver

Title: Half inch spanner

We're super impressed how the artist conveyed subtlety & elegance in such a simple way using traditionally masculine & tough subjects - we love them!

And there are two more on display over at his website - I highly suggest you take a gander.
