Wooden necklace in pastels





A new necklace in the shop! I've used pastel colors, a pink and grey combination that looks so good together. As with all our wooden necklaces, this one is adjustable too so you can wear it as a long necklace or simply shorten it to the lenght you wish :-)
You can find it in the shop, along with the our other wooden necklaces!

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Clay houses





These two clay houses are in the shop! I enjoyed making them so much and since they are one of a kind I got to be very creative with the paintings. I got to paint different versions of trees, vines and flowers and no two houses are the same!
Find them in our clay houses section :-)

Wishing you a lovely day,

In progress




A few more miniature portraits in progress! I'm not completely satisfied with all of them, I need to tweak them a bit before I move on to making the entire matchbox. They are Simone de Beauvoir and Edith Piaf, I;m happy with the first but even though I love how Piaf looks my sister confused her for Lucille Ball... So I'm thinking of maybe doing a portrait where her hair is longer? The other two are Agatha Christie and Louise Brooks, I like Brooks but I need to work on her lips a bit and unfortunately I'm not completely happy with Christie so I'll need to work on it more.

PS Matchbox





Today I'm making tiny little envelopes to fill with love notes! They are part of the matchbox diorama in the pics above. All our matchboxes are handmade from scratch, they are hand cut, hand folded and hand painted making them more unique :-)

This matchbox is painted to look like a vintage envelope and on the inside there is an envelope with a little piece of paper with the phrase "I love you". I think it's a pretty cute way to send someone your love!
You can find this one, along with all our matchbox designs in our Etsy shop!

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Rustic houses





I love how these little clay houses ended up looking! Every one I make is unique and one of a kind as I simply paint on them whatever I feel like at that moment. These two are finished, now all I have to do is photograph them and list them! Let's see if I can do it with this heat...
Wishing you a cooler day,

Bead necklaces in progress




I do love the way the wooden beads look  before they are painted and after, especially the after looks like brightly colored candy! It's been a while since I added new things in our jewelry shop but there will be some new things in the coming days, new wooden bead necklaces in fun color combinations :-)

Wishing you a lovely day,
