I’ve been playing around with rustic colours and little shells during the last few days. The result so far is three bracelets and a set of earrings under the “Desert Island” title. Later on there will probably be at least one necklace to go with these as well.
There’s something relaxing about working with this kind of materials. The mind drifts to faraway places as the light shells rattle softly against the old, wooden table. (I finally have a working space at home, I should actually write about my beautiful old/new table some time!)
There’s always the danger of coming up with something that looks just like cheap, plastic souvenir from Ibiza. I’ve tried my best to avoid that because, maybe I’m goofy but I really like these little shells in summer jewellery! Adding precious materials always helps, of course. Sometimes all it takes is a really pretty clasp to give the piece that special something…
And now another pot of tea with a ton of honey, please!
