A handful of Ocean treasures

Coral Fragment necklace
Hold your breath and take a plunge.
Let the water drown out all the sounds
and the silence embrace you.

Reach the bottom and touch the sand.
Let your fingers dig deep and hold tight.

Resurface and open your hand.
Let the water wash away the sand.
Small pieces of the ocean remains.

A handful of Ocean treasures.
Fragments of a feeling.

time flies

You should know by now I  cannot set a date and stick to it.
I got carried away in the studio and work on a gaziljon things...
I still need to take photos, write descriptions 
and calculate pricing... 
So shop update is pushed until tomorrow!
I'm sorry!

But here's a sneak peak at some of the designs.
I think the gloomy weather and the bone 
chilling cold has gotten to me.
All I can think about is color!

I've hadn't much to say lately.
Lots going on inside my head but nothing worth saying out loud.
I've been reflecting more than usual. 
I don't even know how that is possible

There might be a big change in our lives soon.
A possible move.
A big one.
I think you know what I am talking about.
Maybe it's just time for me to come home.

I have missed it. 
Like a part of my soul was left behind and no matter 
how hard I tried to fit in and just be grateful and happy 
to be here there was always something missing.
It just wasn't enough.

If we do go I promise I will take you with us
on our journey. I want to share it with you.

Meanwhile, how does a Friday shop update sound like?
Lots of earrings. Something about this winter and the lack
of snow has me longing for colors and bright light.

Here's a sneak peak on what's on my bench.

second generation of soul windows in the works...

an ocean filled with sea anemones

look so many I caught in my net!

They will all be strung individually on a 
delicate bead chain in sterling silver
and listed in nova of sweden 
throughout the day tomorrow Friday January 6th.

and some starfish studs might also decide to show up.
I'll try to post some more preview photos 
of a couple of the necklaces tomorrow.

Have a wonderful evening!
