5 days of heaven – London #2

In my previous post I told you that I went on a 5 days city trip to London. This is the sequel. We went to Camden and than Brick Lane.

On our walk to Brick Lane we discovered the gallery SO. It was a surprise because we didn’t know it was there. The location was superb, a lot of light and a bright space. We got a tour from a friendly lady who explained us a lot about the jewellery and the sculptures.

Another great street is Cork Street. There are some classic jewellery shops. It was nice to see them all together.

There we saw this man working in an atelier, next to it there was this beautiful shop. It was funny to see. I think it is a dream coming true to have such an atelier some day!

If you are in London you can’t miss the Food Markets. It’s so delicious to see and taste. I would recommend it to every one.

We also did some other museums: Tate modern, Portret Gallery, the Summer Exhibition,  in the Victoria and Albert museum there was also this beautiful exhibition of wedding dresses.

I had a great time, I can’t wait to go back to London!

5 days of heaven – London #1

One of my favourite places in the world is London. I think I have an obsession with this wonderful city. Every time I go there it feels great. It’s a place where I can go to and totally be relaxed. The people, the atmosphere, the peace, I love it!

Earlier this year I met a special person who is even a bigger fan of London, we decided to go together. Now I’m home from a 5 days city trip. It was amazing! I never went for such a long time, there is so much you can do.

We did a lot of museums and visited some really alternative neighbourhoods. Like Camden and Brick Lane. We both have a huge passion for jewellery so we visited some places where you can admire jewellery. Also we discovered nice places by accident, that’s been so nice.

Offcourse we did a lot of shopping in London we did Oxford Street and Bond Street. One of my personal favourite stores is Victoria Secret but also Other Stories, Top Shop, and Primark. What we couldn’t miss was Harrods.

The first museum we did was The Victoria and Albert museum. They have a big collection of jewellery. It shows you the history of the jewel.  The museum gives also a great overview of a lot of materials like metal. It’s a heaven for people who love jewellery and materials I think. (we couldn’t take pictures there)

Tuesday evening we went to a burger restaurant. Gourmet Burger Kitchen. It was so delicious, the best burger I ever had!

The rest is yet to come.

Céline

It’s still summer and I‘m enjoying it. I hope you do to!
The sun, the good vibe, the long evenings, … it’s great.  When it’s still summer Céline presents the accessoires for the fall.

Here are some necklaces that are so pretty. The necklaces are halve round shaped and have very bright colours. They are made of enamelled brass.

It adds a great accent to your outfit. I love the shiny and strong colors. My personal favorite is the pink one.

Just me

It’s the end of the school year. The start of the holidays!

The past year I studied Juwellery design at the Academie of Fine Arts. It didn’t turn out as I expected. I dind’t pass. I worked really hard to succeed unfortunalely they decided otherwise.

What will I do next that’s the question. I’m not willing to quit jewellery design or making jewels. I know that for sure! I’m now looking at my options for the future. I will let you know what my next step is.

Here is my latest work. I made 3 wooden bracelets. It’s inspired on a birdhouse.
I worked with the 3 shapes that can be found in the shape of a birdhouse: a circel, a triangle and a scare. See the result here.
