Hola, it’s been a while since I posted a new blogpost. I would like to use this opportunity to show you guys a new shirt design. Halloween is coming so I made a new shirt design with the theme Halloween/Samhain.
Finally! Last sunday I showed the first sneakpeek (on my Social Media) of a new product. Now it can finally be released. After lots of tests, (desk)research and design hours I have decided to design my own shirts. Here is the first design! I worked really hard on this project and for a long time, but the first design is finally here :D.
To push myself into making more designs I wanted to set a date for an Etsy shop update. I wanted to upload 10 new items at once. It pushed me to create more items, which felt very good. The more I make, the better I become. And the more I make, the more there is to choose from. It was fun to set a date and to work towards that date to lance a new collection of unique items. Maybe I will redo this concept in the future to make sure I make new designs for sale :).Lees verder/continue reading

Although I am far behind with my daily sketches, I still try to sketch when I have some time left. It’s good practice. Last Sunday I had a ‘lazy Sunday’ so I had a whole day for myself. For some time now I wanted to work out a mermaid sketch I did for one of my daily sketches. And because I had a lazy Sunday, I had the time to do so. This mermaid sketch is the one I wanted to color:Lees verder/continue reading
An jewelry set idea I had in my mind for a while. Inspired by Spring I wanted to make something with flowers. I didn’t used the color purple for a while, so I tought it would be nice to use that color again. For this set I combined several materials I like working with. I searched for pretty silver plated leaf and flower charms and I started sketching ideas. I also wanted to use clay en handmade marble glass-stones.
I completely forgot to write an article about Elfia Haarzuilen 2017. Elfia is a Dutch fantasy event where all fantasy styles come together. It is a yearly event with fantasy styles like Steampunk, Gothic, Cosplay and Manga.Lees verder/continue reading
The first collaboration with Joy Vegaart has come to an end. She made some awesome lookbook photo’s. I can’t say otherwise than that she is an talented artist. This article shows all the photo’s from last collaboration and a link to my shop to the specific jewelry products.
Because I am a big fan of Halloween I decided to make an Halloween jewelry collection. I started a search for cute, fun and spooky Halloween jewelry components. I used those components in designs with techniques from my comfort zone like marbled textures and crackle textures. The Halloween collection has a variety of necklaces, earrings and bracelets.
This slideshow gives a impression of the Halloween collection:
A little while ago I did some research for new materials and techniques. I made a list with all kind of things that I personally like and I made a combincation with it; marble feathers.Lees verder/continue reading
