Winter Time is Happy Time!

In Bucharest winter came in quite early, so I closed myself in the studio and started working on some inspirational objects. The first one is the Christmas Tree. All made of recycled wood, forever green and with lovely lights and angels, it’s like a sensitive touch for the holiday season.

Then I remembered I had some indian stones very well kept in a a jewellery box: a very beautiful lapis lazuli, a moonstone and some interesting stone without a name:), so I made pendants out of them; not too much silver wire is used cause I wanna keep the stone important, the wire is just a net holding the energy inside.
And then, because we haven’t seen the Sun here in almost a month, I made myself one happy sunny pillow! It’s a meditation pillow, a lazy sunny Oasis in the grey city:)
Love and light!

march @ the museum

This weekend I went to the best spring fair in Bucharest. It’s organized by the Peasant Museum in Bucharest, and creators from all over Romania come and show their work. I met a lot of friends who make wonderful things. The three Ana Maria s from Picturici, Delicate and Zoolunatici, Madalina from Buburuze and Silviu Fologea  who makes the best toys ever!

Thanks for passing by, buying and appreciating our  work.  We still have some brooches left, so if you want one, just drop a line.

Have a wonderful spring!!!

Targul de Martisor ~brose obiect cu poveste

“De la firul răsucit, alb și roșu, la mărțișorul virtual…

Mărțișor, Mărțișug sau Marț era consemnat de Simion Florea Marian, unul din etnologii importanți ai începutului de secol XX, ca obicei de 1 martie, prezent nu numai la români, dar și la bulgarii și albanezii din Balcani – obicei pe care țăranii îl repetau în fiecare început de primăvară ca semn protector împotriva bolilor și a nenorocului. Copiilor li se lega o monedă de argint la mână cu un fir răsucit de lână sau de bumbac alb și roșu, ca să fie feriți de boală, pe care aceștia îl legau, după 12 zile, în pom, ca să fie pomul roditor, iar vitelor li se agăța același fir roșu cu alb, ca să fie sănătoase și, la fel, bune de rod. Preluat de lumea urbană și devenit modă, firul de bumbac, uneori fir de argint sau de aur, este purtat drept colier și podoabă, ținut la piept, primit ca suvenir și, mai nou, cadou.
Povestea mărțișorului supraviețuiește, în diferite forme, până în contemporaneitate: de la firul simplu răsucit în alb și roșu, până la mărțișorul virtual.”

Va asteptam la targ incepand de astazi, 27 februarie si pana pe 2 martie, la Muzeul Taranului Roman (curtea interioara). Am lucrat impreuna cu Ana Maria Radu, cea care semneaza ilustratiile, o serie de ‘martisoare obiect’ printr-o suprapunere de layere si texturi, cat si tehnici diferite. De la impunsatura de ac, la tusele de culoare, totul este lucrat manual si cu mult drag. Daca nu ne veti vizita, speram ca macar imaginile sa va bucure.

Primavara frumoasa si linistita! Ioana si Ana.

Prawling silver cat

From sketch to the final silver object. A special order from a nice boy. I really like how the jewelry transforms the metal and how the metal can take any shape you want. It’s like finding its soul and its story. Love it! It’s magic!!!! And it never stops. The change. You can transform it over and over again.

pop up shop & xmas cat

Our silver cat, with a new funky face, gone for a photo shoot  with Hria. Took some friends along the reindeer and the Xmas tree we did specially for her:) And some pictures from a pop up shop I did before Christmas. I chose a nice place to drink a coffee and just arranged a shop for a couple of hours. Thanks for passing by!
