experimental stage

Drawing is good,...to try out is better!

Testing the length....
What would I do without cords, safety pins and Patafix!
Not really glamorous, but effective!
Stay tuned for the finished piece

not for shy people....


I have to admit I´m one of those by myself!
My way to dress is unpretentious and simple . You hardly will find me wearing really big eye catching statement jewelry, even though I love to see people spectacular dressed and adorned! ( Vivienne Westwood is highly admired by me!)

........but there is one fashion theme which cannot be colorful enough: - Knitwear !
I love the knitwear of Ivko and Sjöden





working on some big globe earrings in different colors..
Here are the first..... probably these make the look perfect!

wattlework



I´m keen on any mechanical skill, and I was delighted with this sunshade I saw at the beach.
Look at this elaborate wattle work ! ..hopefully made by people who are paid for this fair!


....made to brave the wind and spending shadow just like a tree!




May I introduce:
My sun hat!

also a gorgeous wattle work! ...( the braid was added by me)


It is a very old hat, made by hand, just like the famous Panama-hat ! (here you can see how they are made!)

Where have I been ?


...on a green island with lots of olive groves, great people, blue sea and sunshine every day!
it is one the most important nesting place of the "loggerhead sea turtle" ( unechte Karettschildkröte).

We took the ferry boat and saw this lady in original! :
