Jubilee

It took me a while to make up my mind on what to do with these vintage chandelier chrystals that I purchased from a funny little bric-a-brac shop (the owner prefers to call it an installation and to be honest that describes it even better) in Stockholm’s Old Town last year. The chrystals are obviously sensitive to rough wear so as much as I would have loved to see one… Read more

Hands of Time

Naturally the hands of time are turning every second but there are moments when some turns are heavier than others.  I’m about to go through a major change in my life this week.

Roulette

I’ve never been one to gamble but this chunky, chequered mother of pearl ball bead from Berlin reminds me of only one thing. The Roulette.

Berlin

What can I say? I’ll try to come up with something. Five intensive days in Berlin last week have left me awestruck.

So, I’ve just been dwelling in the memories and in my feverish dreams I’ve been walking the streets of Berlin over and over… Read more

True Romance part II

Some time ago I made a True Romance bracelet in aqua/lilac with gold filled metal findings. Since I hade one more of those vintage brass flower ornaments, I’ve now created a sister for that bracelet, this time with smoky quartz gemstones and silver findings. I’ve also added a beautiful, faceted iolite teardrop for extra charm & dingaling flavour… True Romance in smoke/silver Well, it’s been one week since I published… Read more

Musings
