I love so much about this home, featured in the pages of Skona Hem. From the whitewashed furniture to the rugged wood chairs and Cath Kidston cushions, it's a beautiful place. However, I'm not so sure about the religious iconography. While it's perfectly reasonable for a practicing Catholic to have such items in the home, I can't help but think it's inappropriate to use these pictures and symbols in nonreligious homes. And I don't believe that this personal decorating don't is strictly limited to Christian imagery, either: I find it odd when Buddha statues are found in non-Buddhist households, or pictures of Vishnu are tacked to the walls of non-Hindu homes. Am I prudish, or do you agree?
You gotta admit: Elizabeth and James makes some dope jewelry. This Elizabeth and James Cross Charm Bracelet ($694) has been on my wish list for a while now. It has a don't-mess-with-me attitude, yet it's saintly thanks to the crosses. But it's way too pricey, so I have to move on . . .
Soon, vamps will not only be trendy on the screen. I'm anticipating gothic jewels in the form of rosaries, crosses, and shark teeth, apparently, to start warding off delicious evil. Twilight's Robert Pattinson recently went gaga over Finn jewelry's pavé diamond shark’s tooth necklace at a photo shoot. The stylist on set was wearing said necklace and Pattinson ended up buying an 18-karat gold version on a leather cord. Other manly men who dig Finn's sharky bling: Liev Schreiber and Brad Pitt.
On the Angels and Demons side of the Hellmouth, Italian jewelry brand Damiani merged with costume designer Daniel Orlandi to create the jewelry for the action film. The special collection of crosses and rosary beads inspired by the film will be crafted with gold, diamonds, onyx, and black enamel. The line, aptly named Angels & Demons, will make an appearance at the upcoming Couture trade show in Las Vegas. Don't get too excited; prices range from $3,440-$8,540. Nobody said it was cheap being Buffy . . .
