Stolen Jewels

If you subscribe to Madonna's "Material Girl" motto, dig pixelated images, and feel that stolen stuff is just plain cool, then you'll drool over MikeandMaake's Stolen Jewels collection. Stolen Jewels features low-res images of some of the most expensive jewels on earth "stolen" from the web (using google image search), doctored, enlarged, and then printed onto scored leather. The price of the collection ranges from 250-750 dollars, a real steal when compared to 350 million dollar sticker price of the real Hope Diamond, which they've reinvented as a broach. Even though I still can't afford these, I do appreciate the craftiness, playfulness and overall stolen-ness of MikeandMaake's Stolen Jewels.
