Lego Wear

As a child I played with Legos all the time...I still have a huge set of them. Just couldn't bare to give them up. My Lego love can now transcend in the the fashion world with these fabulous jewelry designs by emiko oye.

Reware says "Inspired by hardware, haute couture, and salvaged materials, artist emiko oye creates urban jewelry and wearables for the body. She launched her company, emiko-o, in 1998 to raise public awareness that jewelry is art. Based in San Francisco, the reware jewelry line strives to challenge what one considers acceptable."

I admire her forward-conscious thinking and ability to transform a childhood pleasure into a beautiful, colorful, and wearable art.

From top to bottom: Fruitstripe bracelet, Kermit bracelet, 85 Stripe bracelet, Camouflage necklace, and limited edition Tire cufflinks.

Check out more colors and concepts from emiko-o.
