DIY

I love DIY projects! Here are some of my “master pieces” :) If food also counts as DIY, my recipes are on Vegetabible :)

To the Louvre, Jan 2nd, 2013 - these ballerinas' bows were different... I made these ones.

Add some bows to the cap toe ballerinas!

Always when I go to a different city - and it's quite often! - I buy something there, even small, to remember the place. Half moon with black stone earrings from Bath, long silver earringsand pearl drops by my friend Tina Silva, mother of pearl flower by my friend Rose - you can tell I have many friends who make jewels! The moon stone and Swarovski crystal earrings on the left corner are my design. Rose made for me.
