Night time

Like I said in my last post, I was feeling a bit sad the other night. So, to make myself feel better I sat down to do a bit of beading. I came up with this light spring set made with silver, amazonite and pale amethyst beads, green czech firepolished crystals and a vintage silver heart.

I wasn’t happy with the photos I took so I just photoshopped (and I must add that I really don’t know much about that!) until the colours got dark and “stormy” like this. They somehow suit my night time-theme. It is also mainly at night that I do any jewellery stuff or blogging.

I am a complete night owl. Always have been, ever since I was a little girl. My brain just functions better at night! Getting up early in the morning is a nightmare for me. I was just watching Ocean’s Eleven on tv and caught a line that cracked me up as it was something with what I could totally identify. Matt Damon’s character Linus asks Rusty (played by Brad Pitt): “You suicidal?” where Rusty answers casually: “Only in the morning.” Dark humour, I know, but spot on!

Here’s a night time image that I’ve found from Agence eureca. There are just so many treasures in this girl’s wonderful picture-blog!


It’s 2 a.m. I should probably get to bed, read a couple of pages of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell and then close my eyes. It has been a long day of work and study. But this post needs at least another picture so I’ll finish off with a favourite book cover from my Mika Waltari-collection. In addition to his acclaimed historical novels, plays and short stories etc Waltari also wrote ingenious detective stories. This one is a rare 2nd edition paperback of “Komisario Palmun erehdys” (“Inspector Palmu’s error) from 1952.

  2. Thank you so much, Jes! This one is actually a bracelet but I was thinking about a necklace as well. I also love the double (or triple) strand like you!
