I recently came across the website of designer Leah Singh, who creates home goods and jewellery based in the traditional craftmaship of India. She takes traditional techniques, and uses them to execute her modern, geometric designs. Her textile works features traditional wool crewel embroidery, while her jewellery utilized carved bone. 

You can see more of Leah's work on her website, as well as a list of retailers.

I am not the biggest Beastie Boys fan, and I don't think that will come as a surprise to most of you. But I keep coming back to this tribute to Adam Yauch by Coldplay, which I think is pretty beautiful.
