Dear all,

long time no chat…

A lot had happened meanwhile but the most important was the last metamorphosis of The Mistique Moth into Chiramó! It spread its wings and flew high shrouded in colors and dreams.

Chiramó Jewelry aims at taking the work of The Mistique Moth to another level, meeting the international public and expectations. Thus, the Chiramó Jewelry shop on Etsy came into being and thanks to the almighty, Chiramó jewelry will be displayed in Florence this winter, along with the works of other 25 Italian artists from Etsy community (details here).

So, this being said, I wish you’d follow my new blog and fb page to keep in touch with the latest news and creations. Also, if you want to make an eco-friendly, one-of-a-kind present this winter and to support my work, I welcome you to my etsy shop.

As this will be my last post here, on The Mistique Moth, I wish you all, by now,  a beautiful and joyous wintertime and Christmas with friends and family around!

Thank you for appreciating and supporting my work so far. I look forward to continuing this beautiful trip together on Chiramó Jewelry!

Go Green! Wear paper jewelry!

Carmen 🙂 ❤

thank you 2016! welcome 2017!

Thank you 2016 for all the wonderful people you’ve made me meet, for all the places you took me to, for all the great joy you brought into my life and even more for the fails, the tears, the deaths and resurrections, for all the metamorphoses that happened behind the skin.
Welcome 2017! You’ll be even better cause we’re older and wiser! 🙂 I just can’t wait!!! 😀
And, at the end of this year, a thought of gratitude goes to all of you who appreciate and support my work! Thank you all!!!

 


Sylvian

I thought it would be interesting to mention the music that accompanies me in making jewelery. Because music is also important to me and I think it is, somehow part of the process.

So, lately I left myself drifted into deeply misterious realms of delicate poety and sound by the music of David Sylvian.

Enjoy! 😉

Boho Summer in the Air

fbcover

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!
