Something old, something new... Nope, no one is getting married, I just re-did some of the old pieces and posted them for sale on DaWanda. And then I did some new pieces, some of which already sold, or will be in the shop very soon.
So, here goes:
The following three pics are the re-done oldies, now available on DaWanda:
Perfume Boudoir brooch and ring
Simple Life ring
Spring in the forest necklace
The next three pics are the new pieces that already sold before they were even listed (yaay! - me very happy):
Secret Spring Garden earrings
Secret Spring Garden Necklace
Winter Paisley set
And, finally, these are the new pieces that will soon appear in the shop:
Secret Garden locket
I am very happy about this locket - it's made on a recycled Vaseline tin, and it opens just enough for you to put a little special something inside.
Court Garden earrings
Art Nouveau earrings
My head is full of ideas and projects, I need to pace myself and get organized. Anyways, hope you enjoy these and are looking forward to the holidays as I am :)
I will post some of my Christmas spirit in the next post, AND there is a New Year giveaway on its way as well!

Hello there! Still busy here and slightly disoriented. Too many things to do, or too big of a to-do list forming in my head. Either way, I have been jumping from one thing to another and employing most of my crafty abilities. Tadah - I present you with some of the results:
1. This is something I am very pleased with. I loved both materials so much, and already had this jacket in my head, so I decided to make it a reversible one. Also, neither of the materials alone would carry off the shape I had in mind, so reversible jacket was the perfect solution. This for me was a triumph of sorts - first of all, I sew by hand, second, I tend to make mistakes in sewing since I am impatient, but this one went smoothly all the way!. All in all, I am very pleased. The brown side is woolen, and the red is the most gorgeous deep red heavy cotton. Yaay, I have a new jacket!
2. J. and I made Christmas cards for friends and family (and are now procrastinating sending them. Note to self - send the darn cards!)
3. I made papier mache birdies for house decoration. I have another one in mind, and it's supposed to be huge.
4. Other than these, I have almost finished a new batch of jewelry that will soon find its way into my shoppe. And having mentioned the shop - DaWanda is having a Christmas discount on the 17th and 18th December (tomorrow and Friday), so feel free to visit my shop and get yourself or a loved one some Christmas goodies ;)
Oh, and I have a new fan page on Facebook. Drop in and have a look!
See you soon!

That would be me :-) I did some commission work (for the first time) for two people. One set is a combination of earrings and a ring, and the other - ring, earrings and a pendant. I hope the girls will like their pieces. And I hope you like them, too. I personally had trouble giving up those earrings from the second set. Alas ;)
I also added some new stuff to my DaWanda shop. They are not new pieces, just added for sale now.
That's it for now. I am having a splitting headache for two days now and I am keeping busy so it would go away, but it seems to be the wrong method. And now I'll go and add some cheese to that whine. ;)
