More Grace+ variations

'Holy Rose'


'Yellow Secret'


One of my favorite sports: treasure hunting at the Waal-side. Under the railway I found lots of beauties. Today I found this lovely piece of china:

At home I clean them up and add them to the collection of Waal-junk.

My bio Little Pony

'Frog Prince'
'And when the princess opened the door the frog came in, and slept upon her pillow as before, till the morning broke. And the third night he did the same. But when the princess awoke on the following morning she was astonished to see, instead of a frog, a handsome prince, gazing on her with the most beautiful eyes she had ever seen and standing at the head of her bed'
'My Little Pony'Anything can be a piece of jewelry. And that goes for a bio rubbish bag, too. It's beautifull material, it's realy soft and mat and the color is a subtle green. Really worthy of my beloved little green pony. The choker that goes with it is made of green stones.

'Night Rat'
I love the 'aurora borealis' shine on the glass beads combined with the 'glow in the dark' rat.


I will call my new collection Grace+. By now I finished several pieces. This photo is of the first Grace+ I made. I found a match between little moonstone beads and a bleu metal pendant decorated with blue rhinestones and a bleu anchor. They seemed to belong together. But how to make a jewel out of it? Then I found a piece of white rope and sewed and knotted them together. It suits very well. I feel it's a real Parkwolf jewel now. I named it: Beach Bum.

Recently my daughter found two little green plastic lovebirds on a broche at a flee market. Kind of childish, but touching . It was a little too shiny though. When I was tired of my "Grace Kelly thinking process" I made the green lovebirds mat for her and laid it on my design table. Accidentally next to a little green pearl necklace. And I was struck by the interaction between the two. A perfect match! This is what I was looking for! This made my day. Goodbye thinking, finally at work!
