Passion flame/Pasiune

Spuneam nu demult ca margelele si in general accesoriile pe care le purtam spun despre noi povesti. Doar privind cu atentie o persoana poti sa “citesti” multe lucruri despre ea, din gesturile, miscarile, privirea si accesoriile pe care le poarta.

Not long ago I said that jewels and accessories in general tell stories about us. Just looking closely at someone you can “read” about them from their gestures, movement, look and accessories.

Plecand de la ideea asta, am incercat sa surprind macar intr-o mica masura  personalitatea unui om foarte drag pentru mine.

Having this in mind, I tried to represent at least in a small part the personality of someone so dear to me.

Exista oameni care par atinsi de o vraja, care iti deschid usi catre lumi minunate unde visele prind aripi si se implinesc. Exista oameni care daruiesc fara sa astepte multumiri sau rasplata. Sunt cei care nu se plang ca viata este grea sau ca trebuie sa munceasca pentru a ajunge unde isi doresc, oameni care regreta doar ca ziua are doar 24 de ore, pe care le exploateaza la maximum, oameni care pun suflet in tot ceea ce fac si totul se deruleaza pentru ei la viteze ametitoare. Pasiunea lor este pur si simplu molipsitoare, pentru ca traiesc intr-o lume magica, unde nu exista imposibil.

There are people that seem touched by a spell, that open doors to wonderful worlds where dreams catch wings and come true. There are people that give without expecting gratitude or rewards. Those are the ones that do not complain that life is hard or that they have to work hard in order to achieve what they desire, – they only regret is that a day has only 24 hours, which they use to the fullest, persons that put their hearts and souls in everything they do, and everything happens for them at amazing speed. They live with such passion that is simply contagious, because they have a magic world where nothing is impossible.

Pot sa spun ca sunt norocoasa sa cunosc cativa dintre acesti oameni care sunt dragi inimii mele si care imi umplu viata numai prin prezenta lor.

I am lucky to say that I have met some of these persons that are so dear to my heart and that fill my life with just their presence.

Si acum, revenind la subiectul nostru, cum oare as fi putut sa redau toate aceste lucruri printr-un set de bijuterii?

Back to our story, how could I put so many things in a set of jewels?

Ce ar putea sa poarte o asemenea persoana? In primul rand culoarea trebuie sa fie una puternica si pozitiva, o flacara vie, asa cum este si zana mea. Asa ca am ales rosu- nuante de rosu inchis si mai aprins, care semana cu un foc miscator cand lumina se joaca printre ele. Puternic si in acelasi timp delicat si etern feminin, un foc pe care il ghicesti doar in priviri.

What could such a person wear? First of all, I have to chose a strong and positive color, a living flame, just like my fairy. So I chose red – dark and glowing shades, that give the impression of a moving fire as the light plays through them. Powerful and in the same time delicate and eternally feminine,a  fire that you can only guess.

O sa spuneti ca m-am lasat dusa de val un pic… este posibil, dar realitatea depaseste cu mult cuvintele. Asa ca voi lasa viata sa alinieze in continuare planetele pentru oamenii frumosi care stiu sa traiasca cu adevarat, si poate, traind printre ei o sa pot sa fur un strop de praf de stele din aura care-i inconjoara.

You will say that I got a little carried away… might be, but actually reality is so much more than words. So I will let life to continue to align the planets for beautiful people that truly know how to live, and maybe, just by being among them, I will be able to steal a little bit of stardust from their aura.

Este perioada in care se planifica concediile, si pentru mine concediu inseamna in primul rand ca vad marea… Cred ca e deja evident ca este unul dintre lucrurile care ma fascineaza.

It’s time to plan the vacation, and for me there’s no vacation without the sea… I think it’s already obvious that it fascinates me.

Si daca mai era nevoie sa va explic de ce, ma gandesc numai la infinitele nuante de verde, albastru, indigo, violet, chiar si alb uneori, care nu pot fi redate si care se schimba si se transforma la fiecare secunda care trece.

And if it wasn’t clear even from the start, I can think of the infinite shades of green, blue, violet and sometimes even white, that cannot be copied and that change with every second passing by.

Ma uitam la jocurile de lumina care trec prin sticla de murano si mi-am adus aminte de apa limpede si turcoaz pe care am vazut-o la intrare intr-o pestera din Turcia, intr-o excursie cu barca dupa furtuna.

I watched the light playing through the murano glass and I remembered the clear turquoise water from a cave entrance in Turkey during a boat trip after the storm.

Asa a aparut setul cu bratara si cercei in culorile unei jumatati de curcubeu: 2 nuante de verde, 2 nuante de albastru, indigo si violet. Ser sa va placa si voua la fel de mult ca si mie.

So this is how I made this set with a bracelet and earrings with the colors of half a rainbow: 2 shades of green, 2 shades of blue, indigo and violet. I hope you like as much as I do.
