Orange jewelry for instant happiness!

Orange jewelry for instant happiness!

Orange is such an appealing color! It makes me always feel like getting an instant boost if I look at it. And here in the Netherlands, the color orange is a very important color. It is even our national color and this Saturday we will be holding the first Kings day. It was for lots of decades Queens day.  But since last year we have a king and we will celebrate his birthday on the 26th of April. Even if his birthday is on the 27th, but tradition rules and Kings day nor Queens day is ever held on a Sunday.

Accident causes a new career in jewelry

This week I read about Kristin Wood. She was a busy lady selling wine to restaurants and shops in 2010. Then one night she had a seizure during driving. She suffered epilepsy but apparently did not suffered seizures for a long time. The result? She drove into a lamppost and this accident broke her pelvis bone.

Trends Spring 2014. Nature and Jungle

One of the trends this spring is the nature and the jungle theme. You can imagine that this never went really out of fashion, but it is fun to see what designers invented to give it a new and fresh look.

Easter Egg jewelry

Easter Eggs, I thought they were a non-Christian symbol for this time of year. Maybe related to the spring time. But I found out that the first Easter eggs were indeed made by Christians and they were dyed red to symbolize the blood of Christ. As Easter is the day of the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion on holy Friday. I also read it is a symbol of an empty tomb.

Gorgeous jewelry with a touch of green

In my garden I have this huge cherry tree. And every year it is a *thing* for us and our surrounding neighbors to see it blossoming. Sometimes it is so abundant with blossom that we all place pictures of it on Facebook or Google+. It never gets old. Maybe because the blossoming is for such a short period. Now it is turning slowly every more green.

Will fashion finally enter the jewelry world?

Will we see ''jewelistas'' in the future?

Will fashion finally enter the jewelry world?

Although fashion and jewelry meet each other ever more, it’s not difficult to see that the jewelry world has still a long way to go. If fashionistas and bloggers have taken a very serious role in the fashion industry, the phenomenon remains rather new and slightly scaring in the jewelry business.

Spring is in the air! Birds by Van Cleef & Arpels

Like I wrote in an earlier blog about Spring; that first birdsong in the evening. Waking up and hearing an ever stronger concert of birds greeting the new day.  Ah yes, Spring is back. This week it’s Van Cleef & Arpels showing us their amazing collection of bird jewelry.

Spring is in the air! Butterflies

In every part of the world we may have mixed feelings when we find ourselves confronted with bugs, spiders and ants and well really; any kind of insect. But there is one species that stands out. One insect we all embrace and love. Wherever you are you will find people that start to smile when they see a butterfly.
