I’m back and just want to say sorry for being AWOL over the past week, I had to deal with some medical problems while also having friends visiting, but back and ready to rejoin the blogosphere again.
Since it’s been a while I thought that I would share a couple of pieces from my closet. They are by a brand that I discovered when I was in Toronto in a great shop called Lavish & Squalor. The brand is called Vitaly and I am totally in love with their urban inspired pieces. The company came about when the founder Shane Vitaly Foran took a break from his corporate job and went traveling, while on his journey he found solitude in the village of Ubud, Bali and it’s there that he came up with the idea for Vitaly. Each piece is still made by hand with care and precision in Ubud.
One of my favourite pieces the Amici ring which means friends in Italian is made from stainless steel and dark wood as is my Zanmi pendant which means friends in Hatiain Creole. The video above shows the process of the Amici ring being made.
As most of the pieces are unisex I’m lucky that the hubby has big man hands or my ring would be a gonna but as Vitaly offer international delivery ($35CAN or free on orders over $301CAN) I know what he’ll be getting for his birthday this year.
You can check out more designs and get into the mindset of Vitaly by checking out their friends section on their super slick website here. Meanwhile here are a few more pieces that I’m lusting over.
Bisous for now
