So… I’ve been tagged by Andee ( make sure to check her blog, her jewelry is gorgeous !).
I have to share 7 random things about myself with you...
As you might have noticed, I don’t usually say much about myself ( though the pictures and jewelry do the talking for me!), well for once I’ll do the talking!

#1. I don’t like phones ... I know they are useful devices but they are intrusive as well ... I don’t like to be a slave to the phone and in these times of cell phones we tend to be slaves to them. They always ring at odd moments and people stop everything they were doing to answer them. If my phone rings and I don’t feel like answering it ... I won’t ... I’ll check later who called and why ..

#2. I am ¼ black american. Obviously my grand father was a black soldier during WW2 ( I say obviously because we never got to know him but when you see my mum you can tell he was not Irish or German!).

#3. I guess because of #2 , I am very found of the english language ( most of the books I read these days are in english ) and of the history of the USA (I read many books about it).

#4. Talking about books, I love books, I always did ... I remember once I started reading, I was reading everything ( books, labels, the cereal box on the breakfast table!).

#5. I do not have a television set and I’m glad I don’t ... The internet is quite enough ( I spend way too much time on it!).

#6. I have a thing about death ... not really morbid ... I am attracted to the fact that all things must pass .. ourselves included... don’t get me wrong I hate losing the people I love , I hate the blindness of fate. But still I love cemeteries , bones, skulls and the odd things some people would find gross. In general, I love odd and old things... here’s an odd and creepy old thing :

#7. I think I started making jewelry because I could not find any that looked like what I wanted ( or what I wanted was out of my reach financially). I also think I am making what I envisionned as a child ( but at that time I did not have the skills to make what I wanted).The piece I like the best is my ever changing “voodoo necklace” ... here’s an update :

Now I have to tag 7 fellow bloggers :

Sherry from Stillwaters Studio

Lucinda Storms

That and this ... hmm..

First of all, thanks for visiting my blog and sorry for the very low posting rate.
I didn’t feel like blogging these past weeks...
But I haven’t forgotten what I promised. A few weeks ago Pam from the Blue Between ( I always liked this name ... ) gave me an award.

Here are the rules for this award:1. The winner can put the logo on their blog.2. Link to the person you received your award from.3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.4. Put links of those blogs on yours.5. Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.6. Write an acceptance speech in the style of the Academy Awards, thanking every body's mother, father, sister, brother, aunties and uncles and the kitchen staff at your favorite restaurant!

So here are the blogs I want to give an award to:

Seth from the Altered Page ( make sure to follow his Pulse serie if you want to know a bit more about the artistic path of people from around the internet!)

Lucie from Bijoux éclectiques.

Robin's Nest.

Sherry from Stillwaters Studio.

Stephanie from Rodrigvitz Style.

Lucinda from Belvedere Beads.

Bérilune from Terres des Brumes.

But this doesn’t mean that you should ignore the links on the right because all these blogs and sites rock !

Now, some new jewelry I managed to make over the past few days ( nothing very exciting but one has to get rid of dust collecting beads ...).

Polymer clay and copper:

Dust collecting beads ( mainly plastic):

Wood, resin and a polymer clay pendant:

Wood and a terra cotta pendant:

I leave you with a happy picture ... see you soon and thanks for stopping by !

July was a busy month in the real world .. and then I went on holidays . I was back on friday , only to start something like the flu on sunday ... still coughing, aching ... but it's getting better.

A package was waiting for me this friday ... A few weeks ago I agreed to have an ATC's swap with two lovely sisters from Ohio : Melissa and Angela.

This is what I received :

See, they spoiled me ... and boy, these chocolates are delicioussssssssss!

And these are the cards I sent :

That's all for now, I'll be back some time this week , Pam from the BlueBetween gave me an award a few weeks ago and I still have to pass it on ...

My Preciousssssssssss

Look at this amazing heavy gorgeous silver ring ... It's mine, mine, mine! Janos from Blindspot Jewellery made it ... each time I was looking at his etsy shop, this ring was calling me ... I couldn't resist no more and bought it ... Since I make jewelry myself, I tend not to buy any ... but I make an exception with Janos ... I'd buy his all shop if I'd listen to the little voice in my heart! Check his etsy shop ... see if you can resist !
