Ring Bearer
Michal Negrin's jewelry may look vintage Victorian, but the delicate new pieces are actually handmade in Israel. These drop earrings have enamel flowers and red rhinestone accents around a cherub center ($85).

On a Roll
Heavy, all-terrain strollers have been trendy for ages, but the fact is, lighter ones are easier to fit in a taxi or maneuver on the subway. The seat of Maclaren's eight-pound, aluminum-framed Volo is covered with an easy-to-clean fabric webbing. The stroller also has foam grip handles, a removable basket, and swiveling wheels. A shoulder strap makes for easy carrying ($99; an accessory pack with sun shade, seat liner, and rain cover is an additional $49).

Sole Searching
Fashion illustrator Mary Lynn Blasutta's new collages are inspired by her passion for beautiful shoes. The framed pieces show pointy red mules, stylish slides, and these trendy wedge sandals. All are handmade from paper and found objects, so no two are alike ($225).

Tray Cool
Part of Desiron's new line of accessories, this aluminum tray does double duty: Hold it one way and it's a traditional cocktail tray; flip it over and use it in bed as a tray table ($40).

The Wright Stuff
Collectors of Russel Wright's dinnerware often spend years searching out coveted pieces. Now Sakura has re-created products from the designer's most famous collections, including American Modern and Casual, staying true to the original shapes and colors. The line includes dinner and salad plates, soup bowls with handles, a divided vegetable bowl, platters, a teapot, and this iconic pitcher. Prices range from $5 to $30.

Web of Intrigue
Parents, look out. Just in time to accompany the Spider-Man movie, Marvel has introduced a bunch of new products, including the Dual Action Web Blaster. This nifty device, which straps onto a matching glove, shoots out a silly-string-like substance that will temporarily stick to (but not ruin) various surfaces ($16.99).
