Fetelooor, va puteti imagina cum ar fi sa aveti in casa o asemenea frumusete?? Catifea vie ce raspandeste un parfum absolut divin… elegant , nobil, senzual…ce poate fi mai frumos?


Girlsss, can you imagine how it would be like to have such beauty at home?? Vivid velvet spreading an absolute divine perfume…elegant, noble, sensual…what could be more beautiful?

V-ati prins… am incercat sa surprind un pic din delicatetea aceasta fascinanta in… dantele, funde, panglici, margelute. Orhidee din dantela neagra, cu petale burgundy violet si bulinute albe. Centrul- un inel crosetat cu panglici ciclam, ca o inima pasionala, si o trena inlantuita cu sticla de murano, ca ultimile sclipiri ale apusului intr-o noapte de vara, pe iarba uda.

You got it…I tried to get a glimpse of this fascinating delicate beauty in…lace, ribbons, bows, beads. An orchid made of  black lace, with dotted violet-burgundy petals. The center – a crochet ring with fuchsia ribbons like apassionate heart, and a chained train with murano glass, like some of the last  glimpses of sunset on the wet grass, in a summer night.

O orhidee neagra ca o contesa cu rochii fosnitoare pentru o mamica duioasa si tandra. Va imbratisez cu drag!

A black orchid like a countess dressed up in rustling dresses for a loving tender mom. Hugs, darlings!

Cognac cake

Mmmm….miam ce ziceti de o prajitura cu coniac la ceaiul de dimineata?

Mmmm… how about a cognac cookie with the morning tea?


Asta m-a inspirat pentru brosa Cognac cake, o aroma tare si profunda, pretioasa, ce te invaluie in parfumul unei dimineti de rasfat.

That’s what inspired me for the Cognac cake brooch, a precious, strong and profonde aroma that surronds you with the pampering morning fragrance.

Va imbratisez cu drag si va doresc o zi caldaa!

Hugs and may you have a warm day!

La multi ani!!

Vreau sa incep prin a saluta o zana a veseliei, ce-mi este tare draga, ca un soare ce nu apune, nu oboseste si fuge mereu de nori.

La multi ani, draga mea Licurici, te imbratisez cu drag si sper ca viata sa-ti surada mereu cu zambetul insorit, sa iti aduca inspiratie si putere, si… vant din pupa cum se spune!!

I want to start by saying hello to a joyful fairy, very dear to my heart, like a never dawning sun that never gets tired and always runs away from clouds.

Happy birthday, dear Licurici, many hugs and may your life always smile back at you with a sunny smile, may it bring inspiration and strength, and… wind beneath your wings!!

Si vroiam sa va mai spun ceva: zilele astea ma gandeam… ce-ar fi sa experimentez si cu o brosa-doua… Va las pe voi sa vedeti ce-a iesit 🙂

And another thing: these days I thought of some experiment: one or two brooches… I’ll let you see for yourself what came out 🙂

Povesteam nu demult despre eternul feminin pus in evidenta prin contraste, de lumi noi pe care le descoperim la fiecare pas si in locuri sau in lucruri neasteptate.  As vrea sa va vorbesc despre o lume in care totul este grandios… bucuria, tristetea,  confesiunea, au un aer de roman tumultos, au o profunzime adanca.

We talked some time ago about the eternal feminine that’s highlited by contrasts, about new worlds that we descover step by step in unnexpected places and things. I wish to talk to you about a world in which everything is grand… joy, sadness, confession, have a greater depth and seem like a tumultuos novel.

Vorbim astazi despre un mod de exprimare pe care poti doar fie sa-l iubesti, fie sa-l urasti, dar cu siguranta nu-ti poate ramane indiferent. Despre un stil in care totul, dar TOTUL capata dimensiuni exagerate:  viata e o poveste cu printi, printese, balauri si vrajitoare, culorile se accentueaza in nuante de amurg, in neguri si ceata, pasiunea devine flacara mistuitoare si singuratatea are un aer apocaliptic. Unde privirea capata luciri de mister tenebros, si pare ca ascunde un morman de secrete intunecate.

We’ll talk about a way of  expressing that you’ll either love or hate, but definetly won’t leave you indifferent. A style where everything, I mean EVERYTHING is larger than life:  you’ll live your everyday life like a story whith princes and princesses, witches and dragons, colors get more and more intense in twilight shades, fog and mist, passion becomes a consuming flame and lonelyness gets an apocalyptic sense. Where looks have glimses of tenebrous glow, and seem to hide piles and piles of dark secrets.

Poate ca te-a fascinat magnetismul romantic si infricosator al Morticiei, poate ca te atrag marile tragedii si iubirile neintelese ca a Anei Karenina,   poate ca vezi lumea in umbre si lumini prin dantelarii si spini.

You might be fascinated by Morticia’s romantic and creepy magnetism, you might be drawn to great tragedies and misunderstood lovestories like Ana Karenina’s, or you might see the world in shades and lights through laces and thorns.

Fie ca esti “un copil rebel” al vremii tale, fie ca esti o fire romantica si te atrag irezistibil misterele, tenebrele, vampirii, varcolacii, sau personajele supranaturale, probabil iti place sa te exprimi in culori dramatice, in contraste.

If you’re “a rebel child” of yor time,or you’re a romantic irresistibly attracted by mysteries, shadows, vampires, werewolves and supernatural, you probably like to express yourself in dramatic colors and contrasts.

Pentru femeia misterioasa si care traieste in noi toate, va propun o calatorie in timp, catre anii 1800, la tinutele victoriene, fastuase si elaborate, cu corsete brodate in toate culorile, cu dantelarii complicate, cu rochii ample si palarii impresionante.

For the mystery woman that lives in all of us, let’s take a journey in time to the 1800’s to victorian outfits, lavish and elaborate, with embroidered corsets in all colors, with  complicated laces, with large dresses and  impressive hats.

Sa reinviem povestea pasionala a Anei Karenina cu un colier fix din dantela neagra, impodobit cu un lant de margele albastre si cu o minuscula moneda, o delicatete vinovata, o eleganta cazuta in pacat.

Let’s revive the pasionate love story of Ana Karenina with this black lace necklace, deorated with a chain of blue beads and tiny coin, a guilty delicacy, a sinful elegance.


Hmmm…. mie-mi aduce aminte de Morticia acest colier din dantela, inlantuita cu cascade de margele din sticla manuala in culorile pasiunii. O Morticia eleganta, pasionala, ce tocmai s-a intors din gradina cu un cos de trandafiri rosii pe care ii decapiteaza si-i aseaza tacticos in vaza… 🙂

Hmm….this seems to me like Morticia. It’s a lace necklace chained with cascades of manual glass beads in passion colours. An elegant and passionate Morticia, just returned from the garden with a basket full of red roses that she decapitates and gently arrange in the vase… 🙂

Ma uitam zilele trecute prin fotografiile unei nunti cu tema de inspiratie mexicana, si mi s-a parut pur si simplu uimitor cata veselie si cata pofta de viata transmiteau multitudinile de culori, de forme, de texturi.

I was watching the other day some  photos from a mexican theme wedding, and I was simply amazed by the joyful and immense taste of life that I got from the incredible colors, shapes, textures.


Si imediat gandul m-a dus pe aripi de vis acolo. Mi-am imaginat o mireasa frumoasa cu parul impletit in cozi la spate, cu flori in par, si… cu un curcubeu infasurat in jurul gatului, un mire mandru si chipes ca un toreador, ghirlande de flori multicolore, pinata, tequila si muuult mult dans.

And right away, my thoughts took me there on a dream’s wings. I imagined a beautiful bride with braids and flowers in her hair, and… with a rainbow wrapped around her neck, a handsome groom that looks like a torero, garlands with lots and lots of colorful flowers, pinatas, tequila and a looot of dancing.

Si m-am gandit… ce mi-ar placea sa ii fac un colier colorat, in care sa pun cate un pic din delicatetea florilor, un pic din dantelariile rochiilor,ceva  din savorile mancarurilor delicioase, un pic de veselie, tobe si ritm de muzica, un pas de dans, o adiere de parfum, un vis de copilarie, o raza de soare si un strop de noroc.

And I thought … I would really like to create a colorful necklace for her, to contain a little bit of the flower’s delicacy, a little bit of the dresses’ lace, some of the delicious flavors, a little bit of  joy, music drums,  a dance step, a perfume breeze, a childhood dream, a sunny ray and a stroke of luck.

L-as impleti cu un cantec si cu fire de dragoste, sa se asorteze cu panglicile din parul ei.

I would braid it with a song and love threads, to match the ribbons in her hair.

De colores
De colores se visten los campos en la primavera
De colores
De colores son los pajarillos que vienen de afuera
De colores
De colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir

por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores me gustan a mi

In colors
In colors the fields get dressed in the spring
In colors
In colors are all the birds that come from outside
In colors
In colors is the rainbow we are watching shining in the sky

because  of this, the great love stories
With lots of colors – are my favorites
And because  of this, the great love stories
With lots of colors – are my favorites

In culori
In culori se imbraca pasunile primavara
In culori
In culori sunt toate pasarelele care vin de afara
In culori
In culori este curcubeul pe care-l vedem stralucind

pentru toate astea, povestile marilor iubiri
Pictate in multe culori- imi plac mie
Si pentru toate astea, povestile marilor iubiri
Pictate in multe culori- imi plac mie

Recuerdos / Memories

O sa radeti… Imi luasem inima in dinti si vroiam sa imi incerc norocul a doua oara cu Steampunk.

You’ll laugh… I finally decided to try my luck again with Steampunk.

Am selectat din dulapiorul cu minuni (nu v-am spus ca cele cateva – multe cutii si cutiute s-au transformat intre timp intr-un frumos dulapior) piese metalice, snururi de piele, dantele, conectoare, si, printre comori, am gasit o moneda gaurita pe care mi-a daruit-o o prietena draga din Spania cand a venit in vizita la noi intr-un schimb de experienta. Eram in liceu. Tin minte ca a venit incarcata cu tot felul de cadouri si cadouase, iar inainte sa plece mi-a lasat si cateva monede (Pesos – pe atunci Spania nu trecuse inca la Euro).

I selected from my cabinet with wonders (I didn’t mention that the few-many big boxes, litlle boxes turned now into a nice little cupboard) pieces of metal, leather cords, lace, connectors, and, among the treasures I found a coin with a whole in the middle. It was a gift from a dear friend from Spain in an visit. I was in high school. I remember she came loaded with gifts, and before she left, she gave me a few pesos ( Spain hadn’t adopted Euro yet).

Asaaa… si inarmata cum v-am spus cu tot felul de elemente, le-am intins pe masa si… pentru ca imi doream sa folosesc moneda despre care v-am povestit, am ales un snur din piele si am inceput sa-l impletesc.  De acolo, lucrurile au luat o turnura… misterioasa 🙂 Cred ca rezultatul vorbeste de la sine. Steampunk-ul vine intr-unul din episoadele urmatoare. Sper sa va placa bratara mea.

Sooo… I gathered all those elements, lay them on the table and… as I wanted to include the coin I was telling you about, I chose a leather cord and I began to braid it. Then… things got a little bit mysterious 🙂 I think the result speaks for itself. Steampunk will come in one of the next episodes. Hope you like my bracelet though 🙂

Dragele mele, daca va numarati printre cititoarele acestui blog, inseamna ca sunteti iubitoare ale frumosului si ale creatiei, ale bijuteriilor unicat, al fanteziei.

M-am gandit ca ar fi util sa avem cateva informatii despre modul cum putem sa pastram aceste bijuterii dragi pentru mai multa vreme, in conditii cat mai bune, ca sa ne bucure ochii, si pe ai celor dragi  un timp caaat mai indelungat.

Deci, iata un mini manual de folosire corecta a bijuteriilor voastre:

Intotdeauna aplicati cremele de fata, corp, maini, machiajul si parfumul inainte de a va pune bijuteriile ( ar fi preferabil chiar sa asteptati putin pana cand aceste produse sunt absorbite de piele).

Nu pulverizati  parfumul sau orice alt produs ce contine alcool direct pe bijuterie. Folositi-le inainte de a purta bijuteriile sau dupa ce le scoateti.

Scoateti bijuteriile inainte de dus.

Bijuteriile pot fi curatate cu o carpa moale, astfel incat sa nu zgarie margelele, cristalele, scoicile sau pietrele.

In cazul in care bijuteria este din sau are portiuni textile, puteti folosi o carpa moale usor umezita si putin sampon, si apoi stergeti cu o carpa umeda.

Pentru pastrarea, curatenia si protejarea bijuteriilor se recomanda sa fie tinute intr-o punguta, saculet sau cutie.

De asemenea, nu este recomandat sa fie lasate la indemana copiilor, in special cele cu margele mici pe care acestia le pot inghiti.

Acest manual cuprinde conditii general valabile de pastrare a bijuteriilor.  Sper sa va foloseasca si, astept si de la voi alte sfaturi practice pe acesta tema.

Va imbratisez cu drag!


My dears, if you’re readers of this blog, my guess is that you love beauty and creation, unique jewelry, fantasy.

I thought it would be useful to have some information on how we could keep these dear jewelery  for a longer time, in the best conditions, so they can joy our eyes and our loved ones.

So, here’s a small manual for proper use of your jewelry:

Always apply face, body, hand creams, makeup and perfume before putting on your jewelry (preferably wait a little time until these products are absorbed by the skin).

Don’t pulverize perfume or any other product based on alcohol directly on the jewelry. Use these products before or after  wearing jewelry.

Remove your jewelry before using the shower.

Jewels can be cleaned with a soft cloth, so you won’t scratch the beads, crystals, seashells or precious stones.

In the case that the jewelry contains textiles, you can use a soft moist cloth and some mild shampoo, and cleanse it with a moist cloth.

For proper storage  and protection of your jewels, it’s recommendable to keep them in a little bag, sachet or box.

Also, please keep them away from children, especially those made of small beads  that they might swallow.

This manual contains general tips for jewelry use. I hope it will be useful to you and I’m waiting for other tips and suggestions from you also.

Dragele mele, vreau doar sa va spun La multi ani!, noul an sa va aduca bucurii nemasurate si satisfactii, si, asa cum este traditia, sa va sorcovesc!

Sorcova, vesela,

Să trăiti, să-nfloriti,

Peste vară, primăvară,

Ca un păr, ca un măr,

Ca un fir de trandafir,

Tare ca piatra,

Iute ca săgeata,

Tare ca fierul,

Iute ca otelul.

La anul si la multi ani!

My dears, I just want to wish you A happy new year!, hope this new year will bring countless joys and satisfaction, and, as customary, here’s your 1st January carol!

Happy times,

May you live long and bloom,

Along the spring and summer,

Like an apple tree, like a pear tree,

Like a rose,

Hard as a stone,

Swift as an arrow,

Hard as iron,

Swift as steel.

Happy new year!!
