Being There

I have been traveling and treasure hunting for my jewelry designs the last few weeks.. I am still away from home and will be back with a small suitcase full of original findings in two weeks! To give you a hint some of them are hand painted so I will make even more one of a kind pieces soon, yay! :)

This week at EtSytill: Being There (1979)

Peter Sellers and Shirley MacLaine star in Hal Ashby's great movie. Being There is the story of a simple-minded gardener who lived his whole life with little contact to outside world and what awaits him when he has to leave the house. If you have not seen it yet, maybe you can put it on your "to see" list.

I want to thank fellow Etsians for making these lovely items available to us! Here is the stills recreated by me and Etsy :)

Garnet - Stone of Heros

Garnet is described as stone of commitment, fidelity, passion, courage and vitality.. These words say "hero" to me.. I can imagine a gorgeous piece of garnet decorating a knight's sword, a king's crown or a queen's wrist..

Luxe Genuine Garnet Bracelet & Earrings

Whether you like heros or not, you are probably someone's hero after all..

I have a dream...

Dreamy Vintage is my little vintage jewelry shop at Etsy. Like most girls I love jewelry, especially subtle, romantic, dreamlike pieces and of course vintage too.. I am also kind of good when it comes to working with my hands.. A while ago I decided making jewelry for myself and I became pretty succesful at that. Then my obsession kind of got out of hand and I started to make jewelry for everyone who likes them :)

I have the most fun when I tell a story with my jewelry.. No matter how long or short, they all have an autobiography.. I will share my creations and their stories with you here.. I would love to read your comments and stories, so please don't hesitate to leave one..

I currently have a small collection of necklaces, lockets, a delicate earring and a convertible bracelet-choker. We have convertibles for everything so why not jewelry too? I named this beauty Sophie. Sophie consists of a bracelet and an extention that converts her into a choker in seconds. Bracelet is very elegant for everyday wear. If you are feeling more adventurous convert it to a choker and pretent you are portrait from Victorian era :)

Sophie looks great with anything with silk, velvet, ruffles or with an indecisive mood. Tested and approved :)
