Time flies, especially when you’re out exploring Antwerp and meeting up with friends. If there was any doubt before, now I’m 100% sure my next residence will be located in A-town. A month ago (yikes) my beloved city organized a fashion festival. We can only applaud a weekend filled with fashion and friends. Many thanks to Marnix & Ally for all of their hard work and for inviting us to the chic kick off of the festival. If you want, because what else is there to do on a Sunday evening, you can read some top-notch reports by my fellow bloggers: The Ginger Diaries, Archistas, Bags & Chocolate, Golden Mirrors & Pink Bows, Anouk meets Fashion, …
What about my report? I decided to talk a little about two (jewelry) brands that stood out for me. Don’t worry, I also included a dozen of pictures.

The first word that immediately came to mind: cool! Jewelry with an edge, or actually a lot of edges. One day Stijn Van der Auwera, the man behind stAen, decided to design a ring for his girlfriend since no ordinary one was good enough – all together now: aaaaww! A few months later his endeavours turned into a new, fresh jewellery label. He likes to experiment with original materials and classic shapes. I’m swooning over the architectural ring above, although I’m not quite sure if it would survive me and my clumsiness.

Another very original jewelry label with stunning collection shots. The designs in these pictures are based on nature’s beauty and secrets. My favorites are the big see-through rings with colorful materials inside. Imagine a mysterious lake miles under the thick ice of Antarctica, shut off from the rest of the world for ages. What would you imagine to be inside? These dreams and fantasies were the idea behind Lien Hereijgers’ first collection Vostokring. Intrigued yet? Visit her dreamworld right here.
