Lovely BPS member Zosienka has just opened her own Etsy shop! Called Little Zosienka, it features limited edition prints and unique badges of Zosienka's dreamlike artwork. Shown above are her Bear and Goose badges, which, she writes, " ... are from a series called 'Saint Gall'. Saint Gallus is the patron saint of birds, geese & poultry. His character is often represented with the image of a bear offering him a log of wood." Have a look at more of her work here.

Not only does London-based jewelry designer Nutre Arayavanish create beautiful modern pieces that last forever, but she also has a more ephemeral and conceptual line too — Postable Jewelry. Made of wood, the postcards that can be sent through the mail — the happy recipients can then pop out the pieces and make them into playful and imaginative rings. Postable Jewelry is available from Tender Product (London) and SF MOMA (San Francisco). Find out more from Nutre's website here. Via Josh Spear.

Missing New York? Now you can create your own mini version, thanks to the site Build Your Own New York, which offers amazingly detailed 4-5/8-inch by 6-3/4-inch postcards of the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, Chrysler Building and more. Each building costs $1.50, with eight buildings in all. Some assembly is required (of course), but the results are great. More here. Via DesignCrave.
