pop up flea

Posted in 1 by wideawakethoughts on November 23, 2009

On a misty morning in SoHo, Kevin and I stumbled upon Pop Up Flea, a jumble sale of wares from various local designers. Leaning over a simple trestle in the back of the warehouse was Aaron Ruff, preciously tending to his table of treasures.

A carpenter by trade who found his calling in metal work, Aaron creates delicately whimsical jewelry that whispers of childlike adventures. I couldn’t resist making one of his pieces my own; two fighting bears carved from sterling silver and a natural cognac diamond. Wrapping the ring around my finger, I imagined the bears were fighting over the stone, too preoccupied with their intent to destroy each other to notice my admiring glances.

    I have been lusting after the digby and iona stag head ring for so long.
    The bear ring is stunning!
