I received a pile of amazing 1920s German fashion magazines called Elegante Welt, in mint condition, as a Christmas gift. The photos and illustrations in these magazines are absolutely fantastic. This is merely a small example, I’m really going to have to scan dozens of pages at some point…
Well well, it’s winter now isn’t it. Heaps of new snow coming every day and the sky stays cloudy and grey… I haven’t seen the sun in somewhat two weeks. What does this mean to me every year? It means that photography is a nightmare and pictures turn out gloomy. If there’s no light there’s no light, it’s as simple as that. I photograph what I possibly can and some pieces just have to wait. But nevertheless, I’m extremely happy in my new atelier! I now have all my own furniture there and am really starting to feel at home. I hope that I’ll be able to spend more and more time there working in the near future…
Snowbell earrings feature the same vintage, second-hand glass pearls that I introduced in the Naturally Wiser necklace. I love these chunky, satiny white beads and will make a whole series of earrings with them.
Ice Chandelier has followed in the footsteps of Snowflake Chandelier from days gone by. The brass filigree is adorned with glass beads except for the one, pale aquamarine gemstone. A very delicate piece.
A new pair of Muse earrings is exactly as the one before, but these aquamarine drops have a yellowish colour tone with hints of brown and just a tiny shade of green. Natural and bohemian, no two gems are alike.
“Of the 1,060 arrests by police officers in Peabody in 1918, a staggering 1,009 of them were women arrested for public demonstrations of the shimmy dance.” Quote from here.
The focal point of this necklace is a glimmering vintage rhinestone pendant found from Stockholm. The picture really doesn’t do it justice as the clear rhinestones shine and sparkle a lot more in real life. Added are some black czech glass beads and a little surprise at the back. It really is quite sassy. But it won’t get you arrested.
