Maria Cristina Bellucci

Italian artist Maria Cristina Bellucci designs pencil crayon jewelry. For several years Bellucci worked as a costume and accessories designer in theatre. She also created a wide range of jewelry for stage use. From there, she developed a strong interest in jewelry design and ventured off on her own. Her jewelry is created by using fragments of pencils that have been formed together and then cut into a variety of shapes. See more of her work at klimt02

Glass House with Sliding Exterior

Check out this video. Ross and Sally Russell built this radical home in the country side of Suffolk, England. The Russells worked with architect, and long time friend, Alex De Rijke. The outside shelter of the building is basically a sleeve that can move along the side and roof of the house. Responding to the seasons and weather the home owners can pull back the siding and have a glass home completely exposed to the world.
