Palm Tree Inspiration


Yesterday while working in our atelier I noticed something funny in our view.


See that little shadow on the palm tree?


Zooming in closer you see that it is a reptile, enjoying the sun and view.


Coincidentally I was working on a necklace with palm tree bark. This is skeletonized bark, the palm tree's trunk is made with layers and layers of this, quite intriguing.


The necklace is made with two layers of beautiful glass with the bark sandwiched in between. I then copper foiled and soldered the layers together and patina'ed it black for extra deepness.


I've made some more of this kind of necklaces all with natural found objects so keep an eye out for more to come :) The first necklace is listed here.

Quality Inspection


Mimi has been glued to me ever since her sister Lili passed away. She keeps me under surveillance 24/7 but also keeps an eye on the door like she is waiting for Lili to come through that door.
As she is always with me I thought she could make herself useful by giving her the job of quality inspector, and she has been taking her task very seriously.


*sniff sniff*


'a bit rusty'... she said


'it seems solid'


'a bit rustic for my taste, but others will like it, I give it my OK'


Yes, she is not easily satisfied but that is how an inspector is suppose to be :)
And you can find the boat here if you would like to take a closer look.

Make-over


Although this looks like a home make-over it is actually a shop make-over.
Yesterday I painted a wall grey to re-shoot pictures. I've never been a fan of all white pictures which are so popular in commercial websites, and they never really looked good as I didn't get the hang of it making the items look washed out and completely lost in all the white.


I took an old beautiful wooden table from the attic and the outdoors photo studio is complete with natural light but a homey feeling.


Here are the first results!

I'll be busy the next couple of days with re-shooting items, editing and replacing them with the old ones, but I'm liking the results so far :)
Let me know what you think, love to hear your opinion!
