Sometimes, well ok, in my case quite often, you come across something that really makes your day. Could be many things, an unexpected smile from the person in the supermarket. A child that grabbes your hand. The colors in the sky orrr....a chicken ring. What? Oh yes, a chicken ring!
I know...not everyone's choice, but what I admire also is the fact that somebody had the guts to produce this. I mean: creating this is an enormous investment in time and money. There is an idea, a concept, a dream behind all this: and I love that. Pinomanna gioielli
This ring made me just giggle and I called my hubby and showed him the ring. He laughed and sighed too, hahaha...''Why do you like this so much, Es ?"', he asked me. Well, I responded, and then nothing...I wanted to explain but I could not find the right words.
Frida Kahlo, love her art! Watch by Chopard and grinning monkey by De Grisogono ( oh oh cute!!!)
It is like art. You can tell a lot about the artist: what colors he used, what school he followed, what his style is. But in the end you are caught by something, not with your head, but with your heart.
More delicate but ever so delightful jewelry by Tabbah
And to me this happens very often with jewelry that represents an animal. It is not just because I love animals. It goes further than that. I think it has to do with my profound love for imagination. For dreams and fairytales. Not the old fashioned fairytale which were, let's admit it, rather violent and scary, but the ones that make you wonder. That lift your spirit. That delight you!
N2, who says that jewelry has to be expensive to be enjoyed. I think that the French company N2 les Nereides makes such fun jewelry, most of it doesn't cost more than 100 euro/ dollar
It's why I listen to film music when I go to the gym. And it's why I adore Christmas. I am very much in touch with reality, but I cherish that side in me that reminds me of my childhood. It was during that period that I cycled to school and looked up to the sky one day. A dull grey sky with just one opening of bright blue. The sun peeped through that opening and I imagined myself cycling up in the air....through that gap in the sky and finding myself surrounded by a whole new world of fun, and clouds to jump on. And colors that I had never seen before and laughter and lightness.
So...well yes, I have a young child that loves to watch movies and I adore them just as much. These are amongst my favorites and yes...I listen to these soundtracks on Spotify...:-)
I have read enough during my life to understand that I was developing not only a beautiful fantasy, but that I had developed a coping mechanism probably at the same time. And that's what fairytales can be too. They give you space to breathe and dream and be happy, when things aren't so great. Most teenagers go through some troubles. Some more than others.
Morphée....gosh I love her jewelry.....
One great show (Netflix) is Mortified, where you see people reading out loud in a theatre in front of strangers, their awkward and funny and embarrassing moments from their diaries. It is hilarious, touching, sometimes really endearing and sometimes sad. I don't know how your teenage years were, mine were anything but simple.
Utter fun! I find these soooo delightful! Would wear them all, but if I had to choose...pfff I wouldn't know which one to pick!
However, fantasy and dreams, fairytales and movies...they bring a little sparkle to our hearts and lives. Art and jewelry can trigger that just as much. I think this is why I adore jewelry with animals so much and also: why I adore jewelry that shows humor. Pure joy !
Think of this...on your finger...doesn't it make you smile? Van Cleef & Arpels
Stuff right out of fairytales! Beautiful little deer by Masters of Russia jewelry.
