As you know iv been spending alot of time working in London lately and met many amazing artists/creatives, i was at a market in brick lane a few weeks back and stumbled across a stall selling men’s and women’s necklace’s and other bespoke jewelry, i couldn’t leave without one for myself (or 3), everything this man makes is unique and they are ALL amazing!
Believe me these photos do not do them justice!
Designed and handmade by London based craftsman Roberto Costa, Maria Zureta jewellery encapsulates the sustainable spirit of our time. Every charm is a unique piece, gathered from a variety of sources. Each one of them represents a re-birth of overlooked, unwanted, reclaimed, broken and unexpected materials, lovingly juxtaposed into a new life. What nature cannot use or breakdown is reassembled to form a spectacular and new incarnation….

In 2007 i was away in Thailand and first met this weird little creature ‘birdy’, we used to see him daily scurrying around the place and buy him a bottle of lipo (redbull) which was the only thing he’d drink.
His voice box is gone so cant really talk, he just makes like croaking noises and says half words! ha
As you can see he has been having peoples names tattooed on him, he charges 1000 baht for this honour which was about £12.50 at the time.
being a tattoo lover and the kind person that i am i decided to help him out n get involved in this little hobbie of his!
after this we became great companions and was basically inseparable!
After he had my name tattooed on him i think people caught onto the trend and when i went back to Thailand in 2009 i bumped into him again and he has took it to another level, he was telling me that he has alot of modeling work coming up in 2010 because apparently tattoos are all the rage these days and people cant get enough of his tattooed face!
obviously tattooed birds also have a thing for him as this picture clearly shows!
i wish him all the best! LEGEND!
Was walkin down the road today and walked straight into this, some fuckin animal had shit in a draw on a plastic baby and left it there for public display at the traffic lights, i was shocked man and it was a bad start my day!
i don’t know wot the fucks goin on in some peoples heads but it ent normal that’s for sure!
just got my pass for B+B, I hope Berlin’s prepared!…………………’SHABBA!’
