International Photo Camp

Soon we’ll be heading to an extraordinary photo adventure in  the small fishermen village of Tribunj, Croatia.

We’ll spend 9 days making pictures, making friends and snorkeling in the cristal-clear woaters of the Adriatic Sea.

The photo camp will take place between 7 and 16 of September and our teacher will be Pinto Horse, a charming and experienced photographer, whose portfolio includes editorials for Elite, Penthouse and Playboy magazines. The workshops in this camp will cover Street Fashion and Nude Photography.

Have I make you curious already? 🙂

There will be 9 days of photo workshops, discussions, exercises and challenges, photo projects, competitions and fun!

We still need 3 photographers to join us!

You can find the details of this Photo Camp here (in Romanian only)

And to make it easier for you to imagine how it will be like, I’ll show you a making-of video of the former expedition, in 2011:

Summer Photo Camp, Croatia 2012

From time to time I came with topics slightly different than my paper beads. But this are the ones that let you know me better through my interests and oppinions.

So, now came the time for you to find out that another hobby of mine is photography. In a way it is my life, since I am the admin of ErKE – Transylvanian Lightpainters’ Association, an NGO for photographers in Cluj, Romania. And now I’m very excited about our next project and want to share it with you.

I cannot wait for Summer to come for Summer brings with it the superextramegagiga  fun in the Summer Photo Camps, meeting of new people, making friends, the fever of photo shootings, and of course, the seaside and the bath in the sea at twilight 🙂

We did it last year and it was so good that we wouldn’t want to came back home. Here you can take a glance :

Here is what we plan to do this time:

Hope you all have a wonderful Summer!!!!

Twisted Words Around Your Neck

Now I have the pleasure to introduce to you a necklace very dear to me. It is charming by its simplicity and its antique, vintage feeling.  Twisted words, wrapped around your neck or your wrists will give you a misterious, intriguing look. Simple and sophisticated in the same time.

Made of old book paper, varnished with special polish that makes it water resistant, this necklace is 71 cm plus 25 cm black leather ends.


Romance Collection

The following creations are for women with no fear to express their feminity, women who understand that it’s all about falling in love…

All of them are handmade and designed to fit different expressions of feelings.

I used especially recycled wraping paper and paper from old callendars and magazines.


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 🙂
