I made my first ring! I’m so proud of it. It’s not perfect but I’m happy with it.
We had to make 4 rings: a round one, a squire one, 1 Spherical and 1 hollow.
The square one is the most difficult to make.
I will review the book later
I’m now on Instagram. Yes!

For Some inspiration
We received new projects some time ago.
One of them is to make an ethnic piece.
We need to find an existing ethnic jewellery piece and make an interpretation of it.
I’ve been researching, I’ve been looking at different cultures around the world and their jewellery.
The Samburu people wear very colourful jewellery that has a very special meaning to them.
Their story in short: Every girl gets different necklaces on different occasions.
For example when they have a child, when they fall in love, when they get marred, ..
The collors and patterns all have a specific meaning.
Young girls have very colourful jewellery but when a woman becomes a widow she will change her necklace to black. So everybody can see that she is a widow.
I want to use this custom to base my idea on for my own piece.
Here are some of my ideas. I think I will go with the crown caps. I’m not sure jet. I’m now experimenting with these.
Their is a new collection of Aristocrazy
On February 14 they were at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid.
Their new fall/winter collection 14/15 is full of spectacular pieces.
Big pieces around the body. There are shoulder pieces that caught my eye immediately.
I really like the pieces they sparkle and are anything but ordinary!
It’s fashion week. At this very moment it’s fashion week in London!
This is the Nina Ricci Spring 2014 Ready-to-wear Collection.
The collection is classy, feminine, floral, colorful and full of live.
Gemfields is the world’s biggest and largest producer of coloured gemstones.
They have really fine standards. They work ethically, sustainably and transparently. Also they have new benchmarks for fair-trade, environmental, social and safety practices.
Gem stones, they are so beautiful. The color the different shapes, It’s so wonderful that nature can produce things like that.
Their latest campaign was with Mila Kunis.
“It’s really a luxury to own jewellery and gemstones. If you’re in a position to do so, you’re fortunate. Given that, I think it’s important to pay attention to what you’re wearing and where it came from.
- Mila Kunis, Gemfields Ambassador
You need to check their website. I think it is a wonderful site. I was surprised by de design of it.
