Golden palette of colors

I spend these days wandering around nearby lakes and enjoying this palette of golden colors. Winter seems this year less white, and more in colors of earth.


I don’t have much time to create due to my day job but I do what I can. Copper reminds me much of this winter’s hues but I like to play and add some splashes of colors where I can. Sometimes it’s a calm pastel tone, sometimes it is vivid pink. I think that colors are important, they give our lives a little spice. And I just wish there were less grayness. Thinking about it now, there is lots of it in people and around them, but not that much in nature…

stubborn enough?

I’ve took this photo some time ago and it’s just been on my desktop computer waiting. I didn’t have any big use for it, but I couldn’t just make myself throw it out.  So here it is. A picture of a little beauty. Found its homein a forgotten place but then maybe there will be someone stubborn enuugh to find it out. Or maybe not. 

I spent my free time lately reading some old classics which I think noone reads now (although everyone knows about them, and I’m not talking about Mrs Dalloway;). And the most funny thing is that they are really great books. And they are there waiting for someone curious enough to start reading. I wonder how many of such people are still out there… Curious, stubborn or determined to go a little further  than  everyone else.

I had this amazing idea that I would…

I had this amazing idea that I would regularly create a blog post about so many great topics. Jewelry of course, but also snapshots of everyday life, maybe some information about gemstone I use. I wanted to create captivating reviews or maybe just share an opinion about books I’ve read. Maybe books I want to read. All those great ideas met reality. When I write something here once per month, it’s a good score. 

But there are dreams and there is reality. I guess everyday tasks, day job, and creating jewelry in the meantime don’t leave much time for other things. And I need time to read books too! I still struggle with time management but I guess who doesn’t.  So this amazing idea turned out to be quite difficult to realize. Well, maybe one day I will write post about how manage time effectivly!

So while I’m here I decided to show you two pair of earrings. During the last few months, I’ve made more earrings than usual and it was fun. I even tried to make some which I guess I could call a mini-series. There is this idea (again!) to create pieces inspired by particular themes or topics, but for now, I just need to make place for such idea! So while running a clearance sale on etsy I put here these two pairs. The “theme” was rather simple. I was looking for an unusual shape for earrings. And something like that showed up under my fingers. I hope you like it!  And of course, you can find them here, in my shop. The black pair is also listed on Etsy!

watching the sunset sky and admiring golden light

watching the sunset sky

January passed quickly on watching the sunset sky and admiring golden light of chilly evenings. It was a slow month. Good month I dare to say. And I’m happy that I managed to see so much even though I didn’t travel further than few miles from where I lived. I spent it in the country and now, back in the city I miss those open spaces. I guess my goal for this month should be to find some counterpart. Look for the sunset colors even though there is less sky. Or maybe I haven’t found yet the right spot to watch it…

 
PL Version *** Styczeń minął mi na obserwowaniu zachodów słońca i zmieniających się kolorów nieba. Nad podziwianiem tych ostatnich promieni słońca, które nadają światu ten złoty odcień. To był spokojny miesiąc. Wolny. Myślę, że dobry, chociaż spędzony bez wyjazdów i wielkich wycieczek. Spędziłam go na wsi, i będąc teraz znów w mieście czuję brak tych otwartych przestrzeni i bezkresu nieba. Wydaje się więc, że mój plan na luty to znalezienie jakiejś namiastki tego co było. Tych kolorów i nieba, nawet jeśli jest go w mieście mniej. A może po prostu nie znalazłam jeszcze dobrego miejsca do jego oglądania…
