the night sucks

It seems things never go as I plan them, good things never happen without me sweating blood. Still that leaves space for work, which never bores me. Working on these earrings right now, my fingers are really sore =P
Can't wait to show you the final result!



We own the night.

a new idea

By Daphna Simon

reowwwrrrr... just give me the weekend!!

As described by Kabiri
Oxidised silver chainmail necklace with a removable pendant that can be worn as a brooch. The necklace features silver and 18k yellow gold animal heads with diamond set eyes. The 18k yellow gold central brooch/pendant features hand carved Topaz, ruby, garnet and iolite animal heads.
Designer:Vicente Gracia

Its a bit scaryish with the animal heads but oh so cool! LOVE the central piece, kinda looks like candy.. yum yum.. Still I think an unnecessary amount of metal might have been used in the creation of this piece which must make it very expensive, Kabiri does not state the price  on their webshop. 
Pretty darn cool anyway..

this is how it's done

GD 'loves' athenas treasures

Athenas Treasures is an Ebay store specializied in greek jewellery, (they have the most amazing pieces on display every day, all the time.. not so good for the avredge shopacholic though..). It's run by Pete and his wife (I don't remember her name, sry:/) and they have been running their store since 2004. If you have not visited them yet,  then do it now here!  I just found their youtube channel and they have posted some videos about the production process of handmade jewellery and videos such as the one above were they showcase a piece that isn't easily photographed. But the absolute best is this video below were they have filmed their dog Kounya, its just hilarious! That poor dog

pretty babies

Some times music can be quite inspiring when  creating jewellery ;)
