Light Tent Experiment

Today I finally received the light tent I got from Amazon. I think I need to work on it, but I think one can already see some improvement. Judge for yourself! (Any advice is highly appreciated).


And after:


Recently I have been spending a lot of time on Etsy. The more I get to know the site, the more I love it. There is so much to discover: new applications, forum discussions, ideas and above all beautiful items! Here are a few recent findings I consider worth to mention.
1) BobbyThisNThat  might well become my new favorite bead shop. I absolutely love their taste. Their beads' colors are absolutely stunning and uncommon. Of course I already made my first order :)
2)This beautiful porcelain ring by MaaPstudio (check their Etsy shop here): when I first saw this, I could not help but thinking "this is ART." Delicate and poetic.

This Blog

So, I decided to have a blog to tell the story behind my stuff and maybe a little bit more about me. I'd like to be in touch with people who share the same passion for handcrafted jewelry. If you pass by, please feel free to comment or e-mail me any time with comments, suggestions and questions. I would love that.

I finished this piece a few days ago and right now might well be my favorite... Of course just until the next one is done. It's always like this, isn't it? :). It took me a while to find the right balance... Initially the colors and the different chains seemed to clash, but ultimately what I think fixed it all were the cute little leaves. That's my favorite touch, I like the simplicity of the colors and how it keeps the leaf motif going.
