Flowers – necklace

Flowers are blooming in my flowerpots on the balcony. Is spring coming? Really? Cross your fingers it’s true. Anyway, spring is already in my studio.

Toucan – brooch

I took part in a jewellery competition. The topic was Brazil. Unfortunately I didn’t win, but the brooch still looks very nice on my winter sweater.

Dragonfly – brooch

Actually, I thought about an orange owl. Well, the initial idea has evolved a bit.

Leaf – Brooch

This brooch is a mix of two techniques: soutache and beading.  For filling the petals I used glass beads with their holes covered with metal foil. This made the light  bring out the colours of the beads in a very nice way.

Blue Agate – Necklace

Agate is one of my favourite stones. When I first saw this blue and white slice I didn’t doubt for a moment what to do with it. The pendant which you can see here is covered with glass beads and completed with some fresh-water pearls. Agates were given their name by Theophrastus, a Greek philosopher and naturalist, from Ἀχάτης (Achates), the river where he found them. Now called Dirillo, Sicily, the river has provided colourful agates and other gems for over 3000 years.
