Awaiting Valentine’s day

The red and white day is approaching. The day when most of people remember they love. I say we love everyday and remembering this makes us breathing, feeling, living. But Valentine’s day is a coutume so let’s keep it like this – a pretext to give and receive presents. I present you some of my jewelry work for this celebration mixing the specific colors with the valuable materials as Swarovski crystals, silver wire, Rivoli.

Blue winter beaded earrings


Hello and Marry Christmas for all of you!

I hope you spent a nice Christmas time and you found many presents under the Christmas tree.

This year our tree is tall and thin, so we called it the “little ballerina” as those who are dancing on a music box. Usually our Christmas tree were rich in lower branches and looked old and impressive. This one looks young and “fresh” and dynamic. It brings a new feeling, something new, although this is an old tradition this time it happened something different, like  a “young generation” is leading the holiday .

I am admiring it shinning from its little lights clock and it really seems a new beginning, an announcement for the New Year Eve.

Inspired by its brightness I beaded a delicate earrings pair, a winter jewelry for the New Year Eve celebration.

Have a good time!

What material suits Christmas party?

I like to dress in a special way waiting for Santa. All the 24th December is a long running day but in the afternoon the miracle is going to happen. We decorate the house and the Christmas tree and add the presents under it. It is so childish and beautiful how we add one more present when the other are not there. Before midnight under the tree is full of presents and the happiness light us. It’s time to “decorate” ourselves for the tree party. How are you going to dress yourself in the Christmas day?

Christmas elegance


ImageChristmas time is approaching and i am wondering how are people feeling to “decorate” themselves. I’d like to imagine little girls with their moms trying different dresses or blouses in front of the mirror. But i think there is something more to add: a Christmas tree flavor. What does it mean?

What do you think?
