The construction industry suffers from one of the highest work-related accidents across the board with nearly 60% of those injured having to leave indefinitely. The H3 is a vest with integrated accumulators on the back and supporting arm. The design improves physical efficiency using artificial muscle technology. It’s meant to assist the human operator, not replace him/her.
When I find myself having trouble choosing just six looks from a collection to put on urban taster, it means the designer has done an amazing job, creating lustworthy visions at each and every turn. Parbal Gurung has done just that with spicy Vermillions, the faintest Pinks and the most amazing looking Silver, Grey and White pieces to die for. images from Style.com

The process of making my recycled paperjewellery pieces, involves a slow, “natural” technique. By curving each slice of paper around the steelwire, one by one, one after another, it is as if the piece grows into its shape by itself. This way the character of wood, paper’s original material, is preserved in the piece — as is also the association to the whole organic world, the way it builds itself, being in constant change, traveling in time.
Printed paper has also an additional reality, the information it contains. Now, one can only see separate words and letters, that have been transformed into graphical patterns on the surface of the piece. The previous content of the material referred to communication between people — message and expression. A piece of jewellery is worn for the same purpose.
