Cheers!

Like fashion designers before them, jewelers are developing whole creative worlds. Foundrae’s designer, Beth Bugdaycay, has dreamed up blown glass objects to match her medals and talismanic rings covered with symbols, lucky numbers and so on. In the same spirit, her blown-glass glasses, shakers and carafes come in colours representing every element of nature and are engraved with astrological signs. The rabbit represents love, the lion represents strength, the horse represents courage, and so on. Cheers!
