Boho Summer in the Air

Hello everybody!

After a too long and groundless absence, here I am again with a brand new and fresh Summer collection to inspire you and to add to your joy of living.

Wear it in the sunshine on the beach, wear it in the evening breeze on the shore,  wear it around your neck or wrist, play with it, make it your own personal delight.

The paper beads are varnished so they do resist in contact with water but it’s reccomended to keep it away of shower or something like this, to enjoy it longer.

The thread is waxed cotton, very resistant as well.

I combined the paper beads with sea shells, sea stones, wooden beads and, some metal beads, here and there 🙂

Have fun with it!!! 😀

Love!!!

Counterpoint

IMGP7214_2MM

Counterpoint is the name of my latest collection of earrings.

As composers were combining very different musical lines in order  to achieve a higher expression of the music they envisioned, so I tried to combine, in this collection, old musical sheets with wood, glass, bone beads, gemstones and chains to make them sound like music and to make you feel special. 🙂

As you got used by now, all the pieces are carefully designed and realized, the musical sheets are protected by a layer of varnish, so they are resistant to water, but I wouldn’t suggest taking them in the shower, even though I know music sounds wonderful in there 😀

So, enjoy it!

Oranjerie. Handmade Gallery

Plantavante Logo GuidelinesHello everybody!!!! Hope you all have a great beginning of this year and I wish you'll have so manny interesting project accomplished this year.
The big news is that, in december, last year, I managed to fulfill my dream and opened Oranjerie, the first handmade gallery in Cluj, Romania.PXTB8051
I started with the idea of getting the artists closer to other people and offering them a platform to express, to exhibit and to sell their work. Another aim was that of getting Romanian artists known abroad, by showing their work to the foreign turists visiting the gallery.
Oranjerie is situated right in the center of Cluj, in a historical area, behind the famous Matei Corvin House, in a fairy-tale-like yard, guarded by a huge wrought iron gate.
As you step to the path and enter the Oranjerie, you'll get yourself into a land of so good vibrations given by all those beautifull things created by people, with their hands and their souls and their fantasy and could not leave without the promise, for yourself, to come back.
Amongst the things one can find here, I can mention: handmade jewelry of murano glass, brass and copper wire with gemstones, woven necklaces with traditional embroidery, and, ofcourse, my recycled paper jewelry, handmade pottery, porcelain, painted wood recipients and home PXTB8058decorations, handmade knives and horns, vegetable wreaths,lighting creations, natural, homemade cosmetics and so much more...
We grow bigger everyday as we discover many talented people worthy of being promoted in our handmade gallery.
Oranjerie is meant as an interactive place where workshops will take place, exhibitions and other events, fulfilling a desire to get together people who love to admire and to create beautiful things, who love to express themselves through art.
Right now we are preparing for Martisor (Little March), the symbol that, in Romanian tradition, announces the coming of Spring, which is celebrating by offering a small decoration, a talisman-like, tied up with a red and white string, and wear by women, attached to their clothes, giving them strenght and healthy throughout the year.

You can Like our page on Facebook and keep up to date with the events and all the new stuff in Oranjerie.
I will leave you now in the company of this short recording from the opening of Oranjerie, on 1st of December, 2012. Enjoy!

Hippie Collection

Since I claim myself a hippie, you’ll see that this reflects in my work as well. So, I decided I should gather all this items in a distinctive collection. Through its art, its culture, its philosophy, hippie gets closest to my idea of beauty. There are some few other things though, of which I might talk in another future post.

So, hope you’ll like the collection and feel the vibe!

This necklace will cheer up our day with its vivid colors and joyous design 🙂

The Mistique Moth

This are very versatile since they can be used as a necklace or as a bracelet, depending on your mood 🙂
