Retrospective 2019

Well …. I started 2019 in slow motion and ended up high speed. The last week of December I had time to contemplate and yes; 2020 is a new year with lots of opportunities. I think more unique single pieces and limited series. No casting; all handmade from scratch (from melting sterling silver pellets to the shaping of every single piece).

The second line (recycling) is in an upwards trend amongst the group between 40 and eternity.

Another activity is workshops where groups between 5 and 10 participants learn to make jewellery from treasures of the sea such as shells, driftwood and kelp. The first bookings (including from overseas) are in. It’s an ideal opportunity for people who want to celebrate their birthdays in an unusual setting, for corporate functions and for more adventurous travellers who want to avoid the tourist traps, etc. etc.

Anyways here a compilation of a few new designs of last year, some ‘bestsellers’ and activities such as workshops and displays at art events and so on.

Workshops

Since recently I’m engaged in workshops. Today was the first day of a 2-day workshop for around 25 participants. It went well and I was amazed by the natural talent of the participants and the production of beautiful jewellery made of findings along the beach.
