This Charming Man
Melbourne-based jewelry designer Edward Janssen is the man behind This Charming Man, an offbeat line of bracelets, rings and necklaces that toe an odd line between sinister and food-centric visual puns. Looking to stand out from the status quo, fans of This Charming Man can choose from a host of eclectic pieces including the infamous bear trap necklace charm (below right), the skull/love ring (above left) or the knuckle sandwich pendant (below left).
Rather than follow global trends, Janssen is content to create according to his own idea of beauty, and in doing so, is steadily carving a niche for well-crafted, quality designed and above all else, original pieces. Worth the look.
