A mermaid and her friend

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.

Mystic Flowers jewelry set

An jewelry set idea I had in my mind for a while. Inspired by Spring I wanted to make something with flowers.

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.

Halloween is Coming…

Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year. I just love Halloween! I'm trilled to see Halloween gets bigger and bigger in The Netherlands every year. With spooky and scary events everywhere, there are many things to do. The jealousy I feel when I see decorated houses from America, damn! So amazing how much work people put in Halloween decorations. The Halloween home decoration in the stores here are also becoming more and more each year (hurray!).

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:

The Halloween jewelry collection is available in my Etsy shop and on my Facebook page.
