show time!

When I saw this necklace pouch on Alek's blog, I fell in love and reserved it before it got to her etsy shop... the photo does not do justice to it, it's awesome, light weight, and just plain gorgeous... I love it!

And it did not travel alone.. look what Alek sent along... isn't she crazy?
A bag made from an old traditional greek dress, pieces of wood she picked up for me, a very old knife she found in a field while cutting wood, an old piece of pottery, an ex-voto(?), shells, stones, a replica of a greek coin, a post card of one of her photos (she's not only a talented jewelry designer she's also an awesome photographer), some greek ceramic beads and a cool carved wooden block (will be useful when I get my clay out again in a few days)... Thank you so much Alek... mille millions de mercis! :)

And this awesome pin was made by Sherry... It did not make it in the photo I took the other day... Isn't it cute and fun? I love how Sherry upcycles things I would never think of using... Merci merci merci Sherry! :))

And the first post of the year would not be complete without an update of the monster.. yes some tiny changes have been made... can you spot them?

This one has been in the making for a couple of months (maybe more)... I don't think it's done yet... it's kind of a long process to make this kind of piece... I'm toying with the idea of putting it in my etsy shop... I don't know...

I hope you all have a great start of the year...:)

I love the little bag! It's so "not mass produced." Yesterday when I was cleaning in the basement, I found some knife blades like that one. If you can figure out something to do with it, I'll send it to you.
The little pinwheel works if you blow it. :-)

If you did put that extraordinary beauty in your shop, it'd be gone in the wink of a bat's eye! Make sure it carries a suitably high price tag.
