Charms can obviously be used in many other ways than on a charm bracelet – in scrapbooking, attached to gifts, on necklaces, etc. – and the other day, I came across a fabulous new way of using them that I have never seen before: attached to mugs.
These adorable mugs are made by French-born artist and founder of Ligne Ceramique, Jacqueline Igestedt. She began her career as a furniture designer and also worked as an interior decorator in Casablanca, Morocco. She now lives in Stockholm, Sweden and focuses her creative powers on ceramics.
The mugs (3.3” high) come in off white and black with either a heart charm or tiny glass beads, and can be used for both hot and cold beverages. Or be used as anything really – pencil cups, small flower pots, candy bowls, vases, etc.
So cute and creative! I especially love the ones with the heart charms. I have not been able to find them here in the US, but they are available online at Inreda.com.
