A day in the studio – The magic of the moon

A beautiful night with a bright moon, who doesn’t think that’s magical? I always believed the moon  is quite interesting. We learn more and more about the earth, the stars and the universe, but there are still many questions that hasn’t been answered yet. It has something mysterious. The moon has important roles in stories and folklore. The function can vary, but the moon and the moonlight are always magical. It has a strong energy that can’t be explained.

March Meet The Maker challenge

I saw more and more people use the #marchmeetthemaker hashtag on Instagram. I didn’t know what it was, so I googled it… March-Meet-The-Maker is a challenge for small business to show some ‘behind the scene’ pictures. Who are they, what do they make, why do they do it, etc. A nice opportunity to show a little bit more of yourself and your brand identity.

I was a little bit late when I discovered this challenge, but I just really wanted to join! This challenge is quite new, 2016 was the first year of this challenge. The founder of this challenge is Joanne Hawker (insta: @joannehawker).

Clay experiments

A few days ago I wrote on Instagram that I like clay. And that is true. I love clay as a material. When you want to make something with clay, you are completely free in what you want to make. It is different than drawing, but it has similarities to. Wherever you have a piece of paper or a piece of clay, you are free to make whatever you like :).Lees verder/continue reading

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.
