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 🙂
