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
I love the beginning of spring. Days get longer and night shorter. The earth awakens and all the flowers get to grow. I made this Ostara illustration. It was nice to be able to finish a full color illustration again. I enjoyed making it :).Lees verder/continue reading
A few weeks ago we went to Deutschland. We were in the Eiffel, what a beautiful place! Dense forests and untouched nature, absolutely stunning! I already suspected the place to be beautiful, so I took some jewelry designs and my camera with me.
I thought it would be fun to experiment a bit more with photographing my jewelry designs in natural surroundings. The forest was a perfect place for that experiment. I wanted to create a magical, mysterious atmosphere, with a slightly dark touch/lightning.
I am not a photographer, but I find photography and the creating of images and photo’s really interesting. Especially when I can manage to photograph in a style that identifies me and my company.Lees verder/continue reading
No matter if you have a creative job or an office job, everyone needs time for themselves. Lots of creative people I know, are also nature lovers. The nature is a perfect place to find some piece and quite. Empty and order the thoughts in your head to make room for creative new ideas. I love finding my inner self in nature. And when I am walking through nature anyway, I can make some pics :D. Nature is a huge inspiration source for all my work, so enough inspiration to find.
It has been a little bit quiet here. There is a reason for it; I moved! It has been a very busy time. We had to pack everything, had to sell out old house, needed to work on the new one. We changed the kitchen, the toilet and everything needed paint 😊.Lees verder/continue reading
2017, what a year! It feels like it happened while I flashed with my eyes. From something that has been a hobby to something that starts to look like a company. I found solutions for existing problems and I found new
problems challenges to take care of. There were awesome moments and not so awesome moments. From happily working on orders to feeling frustrated about situations and problems that found me along the way. 2017 was a eventful year.

Not long before I went on vacation I made my first vlog. I never made a vlog before, so I was a bit nervous. Different people suggested me to show more ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. Other people told me they would love to see more of my work process. Anyway I decided to give it a try.
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.
