New look

And it’s done! Here’s the new and , I would say, improved look! 🙂

blog

I’ve been planning to do this for a while now, but never got around to actually do it.

The new logo  has gone through nine different variants, yes 9!  I am happy that I finally managed to create THE  one, which is clean and simple, easy  and of course it’s my name . I’m quite  happy with the outcome .

As for the blog layout … I was also looking for a Theme that would be very minimalistic and would let me edit it as I’d like to. So happens that there is finally a Theme like that :).

The information on the blog is more or less the same but organised a bit differently. I added a few things, one of them being the  Gallery section where I selected some of my favourite pieces that  I created over the years. It was fun to browse through the old pictures and see my evolution in wire wrapping and metal work and also my skills in taking pictures.

So, I hope you like it, if something doesn’t work on the blog let me know and of course I’d love to hear your feedback on the new look. 🙂

Handmade in Romania :)

I am starting off the year by bragging about jewelry. Only this time it won’t be about jewelry that I made, but jewelry made by others. Others, as in fellow handmaders from … where else, but from Romania :).

I went a little crazy last year and bought myself a whole lot of jewelry. But I had a good reason …. it was my Birthday so I just had to surprise myself with something, I mean, if no one else would …, then it was Christmas and my Santa was very generous this year, … then The New Year came  and we all need a nice reward at the end of the year now,  don’t we? …  😀

Anyhow, below you will find jewelry made by some of my favourite handmaders. Unfortunately handmade products are not appreciated enough here as they would be in other countries and some of the truely  talented people are way undervalued …. at least that’s how I see it … but maybe one day that will change.

Different medium, different material, different techniques …. I try to keep them as varied as possible, nice, aren’t they? 🙂
