Seaside jewelry to make you dream of those warm and joyful summer days!

In the Netherlands we have the kind of weather that is almost never extreme, but a summer with many rainy days are not uncommon. Therefore every summer we are found on all the South European beaches to enjoy a much more stable kind of weather! I do love the custom jewelry sold on the local boulevards, the shells on a leather strap...perfect on the beach and no worries if you should lose it. But if you want some luscious sea side inspired jewelry, there is soooo much out there!

Jewelry with a dark twist

Jewelry with a dark twist

The garden is one of the big joys for my five year old little boy. He loves to play soccer, jump on the trampoline, chill in the grass...But most of all he loves to turn around stones, much to the delight of his parents (not!) to search for a woodlouse. And maybe dig up an earth-worm too.

a brief history of jewelry

Bizzita loves bold gold jewelry

I have always had a love for the bold and plain jewelry too. Whether made in silver, gold plated brass or silver, or plain beautiful gold. It is strong, outspoken sometimes soft, sometimes over the top. But classic and never out of date. I have taken this style to tell you a very brief history about jewelry :-) Come and discover it!

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.

Easter Egg jewelry

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

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.

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.

Lydia Courteille

Jewelry with animals, part 5

Some of the jewelry designers out there are so thrilling and so much seeking the edges of what is beautiful, triggers our fantasy, is still wearable and not unimportantly:  also still saleable.  Lydia Courteille has managed to surprise me once again. This time heading away from the slightly darker designs and heading to a happier animal world!
