The hands on this watch are in the form of two circles, one circle is labelled “what I want” and the other “what I need”. As the circles move to mark the time, they form a Venn diagram.
The shifting relationship that the diagram depicts between “wants” and “needs” is a way for us to think about the changing nature of our own desires and their fulfilment.
The watch is a tool for questioning ourselves – how does the diagram reflect the relationship between our own wants and needs at any given time?

Since I first introduced you to Italian brand NEWD in this post almost three years ago , the collection of safe self-adhesive jewelry has grown. With more more pieces and styles added to their five collections (and some no longer available), it was time to update my readers.
Newd was established in Florence in 2006 by Alessandro Masini. It’s the only company in the world that produces ‘Skin Jewels’; adhesive jewelry that is applied directly to the skin. Glamour, innovation, sensuality, femininity, creativity and individuality come together for an exciting and trendy product that really goes beyond all standards.
For those of you who don’t wish to permanently pierce or tattoo yourself , NEWD is a fun alternative for body ornamentation. They carry simple geometric shapes in various sizes, the requisite trendy shapes such as butterflies and hearts, and some bolder and more unusual pieces. White, rose, and yellow gold, polished or satin finished, gold-plated, enameled, embellished with pearls, Swarovksi crystals, precious stones and more can be applied on your back, neckline, arms, belly or wherever you deem desirable.
They have five collections of different shapes, styles and metals. Some are just simple silhouettes, some are adorned with Swarovski crystals and others with dangling gems. Here are just a few:
Once only available in Italy, you can purchase directly from NEWD here.
