Fortune and Prosperity

...these are the colors to express luck and wealthiness in traditional China
(we all know the furnishing and decoration in chinese restaurants..)

Red and Gold also are used in wedding dresses and wedding decoration in China!
Take it as a little feng shui statement, to put the working tools into such a promising vessel!
In fact it´s more simple: it just pleases me ......

but it led me to an idea......
...which I would like to realize, as soon my gardening allows an intermission!

studio news - scrap necklace

silver recycling - this time I had fun creating a necklace !
pure silver....
Sticking most of the wires and loops into the melting silver nuggets, I used very little silver solder for this.
It is a short collier around the neck....



...but  can be worn also as a long necklace, which is my favorite styling.

one of a kind - , sculptural and a little bit crazy, .....
