After two weeks in the country I have now been back in Helsinki for a week. The peaceful country living was such an energy boost that I’ve decided to go back soon for one more week as my summer holiday is now continuing. During our time in Joensuu we had no internet access and maybe looked at our phones once a day. It felt so good to be disconnected for a longer period of time!
The weather was so great that on many occasions I just rolled out my beads on the garden table and sat in the sun, making whatever came to my mind, which was extremely relaxing! I made several bracelets, necklaces and earrings that I’ve now been trying to photograph here at home. I’ll upload them on Flickr one by one during today and tomorrow before I get out of town again.
I’ve rarely used pink in my jewellery because I personally never wear it and consider it a difficult colour. No matter how romantic I am, pink has just felt too sweet and cute. But teamed up with green, yellow and orange the pinks seem to lose their “Miss Piggyness” and become much more wearable, especially on a slightly tanned summer skin. So I made two bracelets to start with…
I apologise to everyone who likes and wears pink for saying that thing about Miss Piggy. Pink is a lovely colour, it’s just not for me! In the process of making jewellery I’ve also grown to like it myself. Also, I might add that The Muppet Show is one of my huge all time favourites! 🙂
