Three new designs to display, style and organise jewellery, how delightful are these rainbow trays!!

First off are our bright and happy rainbow ring trays.

Mix and match, style your style, use them to hold your gems, put out the set for the next day or use it as photo prop. They could also be an eye-catching display option in commercial settings. 

 

Check out the listing by clicking the image to find more styling ideas and details!

The second design feels much more timeless and elegant, two curvy geometric shapes and each tray has a wonderfully soft matt surface texture for extra displaying depth.

Meet the new 'half circle trays'.

It is easy to see why shapes like this are timeless, they are versatile, somewhat stackable and can assist in styling photoshoots as much as they can elevate small products in an eye-catching way for retail displays. Never mind that these could also display as minimal sculpture at home.


 

The third design features the timeless shape of a cube - well the displaying side is a cube inspired but it rises up like small towers to three different heights! This allows the set of three to be displayed as a stair or step stand but of course one does not have to. 

Especially helpful during photoshoots is the recess which features one straight and one angled side. Therefore a straight upright stand or a towards leaning stand of the ring can be achieved by simply using this stand. 

 

More display options are over here!

Amazing customers and a designer-maker who is overjoyed by wonderful ideas on how to work, style and live with individually handcrafted concrete sculptures.

Sustainability And PASiNGA Designs

Sustainability in my work is something I have been very conscious about from the beginning but this is not as easy as you might think as an artist who has chosen concrete to be her crafting material. 

But first things first, all stationery products are made from 100% recycled paper and card stock. They are also printed with eco-friendly inks locally in the UK. 

My art prints however are printed on archival photo paper to provide lasting photographic work. Framing options provided by myself as well as my chosen partner ... read on

Easter Table Decor Inspiration With PASiNGA Concrete Accents And Pastel Blossoms

It certainly feels like spring outside. The first soft pastel blossoms are around and I am getting all excited about Easter this year. I am not usually the one to do so but this years Easter nest DIY got me decorating all over the place. In many ways the whole table centrepiece started with the concrete hay nest and evolved to adding branches, eggs, candle holders, diamond ornaments, hay and party favours. Since our table is white I went for a clean setting without tablecloth, however white linen napkins add a useful soft touch. I am rather pleased with the soft almost fragile modern feel considering that rather hard objects made from concrete are centre stage. It feels very laid back and raw not to say minimal by all playfulness.  ... read on

5 Tips On Spring Cleaning With Minimalism In Mind by PASiNGA

Based on the meteorological calendar Spring is here and I feel a bit of Spring cleaning with minimalism in mind could just be the thing. I personally can't decide between Spring and Autumn, I love them both, the life in the changes, the colours and light at those times. Anyway, I think it is the change which is giving me energy and inspiration to move and change as well. It is not that I think I own clutter or would ever have a problem with throwing stuff out, nope not me, I always feel refreshed after a good old clean and clear. Maybe, I am still too German, haha.  ... read on
