Here’s some photos from my last handmade fair that took place this last weekend, September 30th- October 2nd, in Cluj Napoca, Romania, as part of Herbfest 2016 – German Economy Festival.

The Mistique Moth at Herbfest 2016 handmade fair
This Summer I had the chance to spend one month in Tuscany, enjoying the mighty silence in the coutryside, the overcrowded cities and the refreshing seaside. It was a great inspiration holiday and also a time for charging my batteries with new, good, positive energies.
In Florence I came across many stationer’s shops with a workroom where they realized different objects from handmade paper on spot. They make handmade paper in a large variety of styles, with different handmade prints and patterns.
Although I usually work only with recycled paper, as a ruling ethic , this time I couldn’t resist the tentation to have a try on this special, very appealing papers. I only bought one shit of beautiful dark olive green with golden and silver winding pattern.
I tried to highlight as much as possible the qualities of the paper, avoiding any extra ornament that could have been distracting.
So, here is a series of earrings that came to life under the Tuscan sky, in a very calm and pleasant atmosphere, from exceptional materials.
I enjoyed very much every step of the process, from the acquisition of the paper until the last touch of the final piece. I hope you’ll like it and enjoy it at least as much as I did.
I’m presenting you L U S H – 2016 fall collection of eco jewelry.
It’s rich, it’s warm, it’s chunky! It’s inspired by Tuscan sunsets through the cypress and Mediteranean pine trees and over the mild sea. It’s here to bring you joy and inspiration!
This post is a testimony of gratitude for such a wonderful moment, seing Maria Raducanu, an exceptional Romanian jazz singer, on stage, in this marvelous place – Banffy Castle in Bontida, Romania, And, on top of it, having the chance to show my appreciation for her in a small but very meaningful gesture, offering her one of my favourite necklace, tahat I was wearing that night.
The fish swimmed to another sea leaving me with the memory of an unique moment. 🙂
Thank you Maria for your wonderful voice and for the warm, powerful and senstive person that you are!

Not much to say about this set… 🙂
I’ll just let you enjoy the music that kept me company in making it:
In the heart of Winter I bring you this new collection of jewelry to warm up your souls and pour a little more passion and color in your everyday life. 🙂
I made these beads of a beautiful poster of Mesteshukar Boutique, a social economy enterprise supporting Roma craftsmen in preserving their traditional crafts.
The poster was about the oppening of a mobile shop where they will sell objects made by Roma craftsmen in collaboration with international designers.
Wonderful initiative with impressive results! Good luck!!!
As I forgot to take a picture of the poster before cutting it to pieces, I will post a image of it that I found on the internet.
And here you have the jewelry collection that went out of it 🙂
Enjoy! Share if you like! 🙂
