Weekend Eye Candy - Blindspot Jewelry Edition

Janos Gabor Varga is the genius behind Blindspot Jewelry. A Hungarian living in Italy, I *met* Janos (pronounced Yahnosh) through Flickr and have lusted for a piece of his ever since.

Janos works with iron, sterling silver, copper, marble, lucite, old coins... whatever sparks his flame. His designs are totally unique, some based on ancient axes or oil lamps, some inspired by the many reference photos he's collected of door knockers. Others spring from his imagination fully formed, articulated, multi functional and spectacular.

His pieces are at once strong, ancient, familiar and completely contemporary. I love the world he lives in.
