Foundrae x Carl Auböck Snake Bookends

Founder and designer of the Foundrae jewellery brand Beth Bugdaycay is known for creating pieces of jewellery that are packed with holistic properties and sentiments. As her brand grew, Bugdaycay noticed the importance of her home as her creative inspiration, in her own words: “I’ve been thinking a lot about what makes a home. For me, it boils down to what is contained in the home: the energy, the spirit, the love”. With this in mind, Bugdaycay has designed a series of useful, practical, beautiful, meaningful and above all storied luxury objects to uplift and elevate the home. In collaboration with The Carl Auböck Workshop based in Vienna, Foundrae has launched the Snake Bookends, inspired by the Snake Bookends rings and the extensive library at the Foundrae flagship launched in 2021. The snakes wrap around the book spines, making them visible and creating beauty from all angles whilst being completely functional.

Maison Romae Birthstone Candles

If you love keeping up to date with the ongoings of the jewellery industry, then you most likely follow jewellery journalist Eléonor Picciotto, who has now launched her jewellery brand Maison Romae, in honour of her love of gems and jewels. After years of travel to Tuscon, Las Vegas, Bangkok and Strasbourg for annual gem fairs, Picciotto decided to create a brand that celebrates her love of Lithotherapy, which is the practice of using crystals and stones as a therapy method for healing. Maison Romae offers a selection of 12 candles inspired by the birthstone chart, through which each month is linked to one or more gems that provide unique properties such as healing, love and positive energy. Each candle is made from vegetable wax, which when burned down, reveals a unique gem hidden beneath the wax’s surface. Each of these gems can weigh up to four carats and was hand-picked by Picciotto.
