Last week I organised all my treasures. I selected the most beautiful pieces and put them in large drawers. Now I can see them all in one glance. It inspires me to make new combinations.
Right now, I'm also inspired by the new Prada and Vuitton dresses

Louis Vuitton fall fashion show:

I think the dresses would combine very well with stone beads and pearls, that are in the bottom drawer. I selected the bright summer colours and lay them out om my 'jewels to be' table. A good way to puzzle on combining them with new elements.

I hope to present the first finished piece in this collection in my next blog!

Mabelle and the Dead Deer

Some of my new treasures from the curiosa market:

Liebe macht Blind


Dead Deer

Sanatorium Zonnegloren

Old coin

I love 'Mabelle', although it's broken and I'm kind of sad the little deer is dead, but they are nice finds anyway. Before starting my next collection, I want to find a good way to store them all. They are hundreds of thousands right now, and don't want put them in storage. I need to be able see them in order to design new things. I mean, I rather use a treasure than forget about it...

I'm a junk digger

Any accessory or jewelry I make, all the pieces I use come from my collection of fabrics, jewels, stones, clutter, plastics, rope, anything I can get my hands on. And since I produce quite a lot, I spend a lot of time collecting new stuff. This weekend I went to a car boot sale and a flee market. I found some really nice objects: Some antiques, even a toilet bowl!
