International Repair Cafe Week

Hello dears!

Some of you may have heard, some don’t of the Repair Cafe concept, the place where people meet trying to repair, recycle, repurpose things in order to reduce consumption and waste. There are places like this in many cities around the world and people have good time together, learning new things and skills and getting back home with an item ready to use, and which they no longer have to throw away.

Happily there is something like this in my city, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Generous and devoted people like Dan, Adela, Ovidiu and all the volunteers and supporters around them are trying to give this opportunity to our local community.

This week was the celebration of International Repair Cafe Week and many interesting events were happening relating to this subject. Here you can find the detailed programme of Repair Cafe Cluj Week.

Among them, there is an upcycling evening, this evening, 21st October, in a nice downtown cafe, Doamna T, (no10 Napoca Str.), where I was invited, along with other tallented craftsmen, to try to make new thinhs from old yarns, clothes, papers etc. You can bring with you any old “rubbish” that you have, old T-shirts, scarves, yarns, papers, whatever you think will fit.

For my demonstration you don’t need to bring anything as I will provide all the necessary but, in case you have some paper that you like and want to try something with it, don’t hesitate! Also, if you have old, broken jewelry that you still love and don’t want to lose it, bring it here and I’ll try to save it for you.

So, I gladly invite you to join us on this adventure! It will be great fun I can assure you!

I’ll come back later with some pictures.

As I expected, lovely people, warm atmosphere, good tea and cookies and great enthusiasm for rolling paper 🙂

Thank you all for coming and making this a wonderful evening!

Maria Raducanu & The Mistique Moth @ Barock 2016

 

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. 🙂

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! 😉
