Still on the black and white theme

IMG_7386

 

For this week of preparations for the WinterMarkt, I thought I’d post on pieces that I will be bringing to the show.  Here is a new bracelet still on the classic combination of black and white. This time, the bead is a Venetian bead made by the Moretti family from the 1920s.  The Moretti group is one of the few left that are still actively making glass in Venice.  I decided to mount this bead on a vintage watch strap that I bought during one of my flea market adventures.  The watch itself was beyond repair but the strap was still nice looking and I thought there was no reason not to try to incorporate it to a new piece.

Don’t you think, it looks quite nice in its new reincarnation as a bracelet?

Red white and blue summer

Summer collageToday’s post is inspired by summer’s red blue and white colors….

Clockwise, from left to right, we have..

The sailing boats of St. Jean Luz, a charming seaside town of the Pays-Basque because summer means going on vacation…

Le Cabanon Bleu, delicious alfresco dining in Porto Vecchio, Corsica because summer is the best time for eating outside…

A cute old fashioned carousel made entirely of wood in Granada because summer is about child like pleasures…

De Petites Merveilles exotic blue clutch and red, white and yellow millefiori necklace (both now available in the shop)  for all those summer parties and picnics

Simple summer flowers by the roadside because we need to stop and take it easy during the summer and last but not the least

Vintage finds during the all those great summer flea markets!
