New hand-painted jewels Bubble style

Hello,

i'm now working together with a friend/partner and we've been busy...that's why i've been away for so long...

we've been doing lots of events and fairs with our jewels... today i'll be posting some of newest creations together...

Besides the vintage button jewels you're already used to see from my kind of work, we now have a new, youngest and pop style: handmade jewels using handpainted buttons.
They're, as always, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Hope you enjoy the novelties!

I'll also post a link of a referral we had in an important italian site: milanodabere.it...hope you can catch some italian....

Happy new year!!! ....Long time no see...

Check out my new online store...it's upgraded...

Hello everyone...
Hope you had a great christmas and i wish that 2009 allows every wish to come true...

I don't even know where to start to tell you the truth....i've been very busy...
first, with the christmas crafts fair i told you about in the last post...
It was a strange experience to tell you the truth....
I got all the compliments in the world, which is always a great thing...but when it came to sales, it was very slow and the first day i barely paid the expenses fees... The second day was a little bit better...but still very slow...

I lost the photos i had and i still don't know if i can get them back, so i'll post them here if it's possible...
Life in fair is very hard...i never caught that much cold in my life!!!! And for 10 hours straight!!!! Very, very hard....but we got to know some very nice and available people that also participated...everyone was so nice and enthusiastic about having some "new blood" in this crafts fairs....

Then i went to spend christmas with my family in Portugal, and had the opportunity to be with my nephew, who is already 4 months old (he's so, so cute!!)and a great deal of my friends on my birthday (last 28th Dicember)...It was good, althought my boyfriend Daniel wasn't there with me....

I came back to spend the night of my birthday with him, and he and the guys from his band had me a surprise party...it was my first time!!!! I was mooved....

Then we had a really quiet new year's eve and Daniel went to Brasil January the 1st....
I'll be going the 8th...i'm very, very ansious, since i'm alone here in Milan, because all of my friends are still at home in vacations...
Life doesn't really start here in Milán after the 6th holiday (Befana's party).

I already have lots of Dani's friends interested in my pieces...so lets hope i can make some great sales there...God knows how i need the money...

Today i'm posting some photos of the pieces i sold this christmas season and, very important, the photo of a stylist - Shirin Cheyahed - who used a pair of my earrings in the composition...

Hope you enjoy...

The coldest winter of my life...

Hi there!
I used to live all my life in warm climate countries, as i told you before, like Portugal and Spain... I'm really not used to this kind of cold weather...It's been 2ºC since the day before yesterday and it snow at night time.... I'm really freaking out...i've been at home a lot... working in my pieces and on the net...

i'm a little short on money to tell you the truth...this economic crisis has hit us all..
one of these days a read an article about how it was easier to start a new business in a crisis time but i'm really not sure that's true...I have to be persistent and hold on...

I'm also a little short on materials so i'll have to spend a little more next weekend at the monthly antiques fair here in Milan....if i can find some interesting material...
I found two new stores to leave my pieces in but i have to have good material to show them...i'm also going to visit my lady friend in Fiori dei tempo, that sometimes buys directly from me, to see if she wants any material for Christmas...

Today i'm posting some new pieces and let's see if tomorrow i can post the ones i made today...
Hope you like it...
see you later....
I also made my firts video ever (out of photos!) and upload it to you tube. If you like follow this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdAenwKOGWY
