Turning used Lego parts into grown-up toys. These ear studs are very small.

Lego means “I assemble / put together” in Latin and this toy continues to surprise in its ability to generate new ideas in the people “Lego-ing”. Even grown-ups find themselves engulfed in this game, and with a 4 year old in the house I have a perfect excuse to play..

It really requires patience to drill holes in hard plastic with a heated needle, so I took a break after doing one pink “diamond” Lego earring…

Fu manchu beard and Frankenstein Lego men earrings, definitely an icebreaker at any party!

I started making jewellery from vintage Lego parts a long time ago but haven´t showed them here yet, so here they are. Every time I wear them they generate nostalgic memories from people I meet.

Huge dark green Lego diamond ring, -actually a special Lego spare part and with an intricate construction.

Lego neon-yellow crystal diamond ring, also cute worn with a long colored string as a necklace.

More Lego crystal rings

Organic Lego leaf structures here used on hairpins.

A more classic variation is this smoke coloured Lego part ear stud. The shelf is from Retro Villa.

Pictures from the left: The best beach for children (and dogs) at Sælvig Strand, childhood treasures in my old room, pictures from Ballen Harbour, the rest is a mix of pictures from Nordby and Østerby. The Lego we made shows us on holiday, and the dog is mine, Emma, sleeping in the garden.
 

My “editing eye” could not choose 3 really good pictures from my Easter holiday on the tiny island called Samsø so I made a postcard for you instead. The island has many shops that are only open in the holidays often with 50 % off on designer clothes.

I found a really cute Kathleen Madden dress in black velour at my favourite Samsø-shop D-signshopping in a village called Brundby. The owner, a designer, is so nice and has a great Nordic taste, if you go to the island you should stay at her hotel RumogRooms. The birdhouse on the postcard is from her shop and made by miho.
