Happy Winter Holidays and Happy New Year 2014!

*Happy winter holidays and Happy New Year 2014!*
Hope all of you have received the dreamed gifts and shared the happy moments with your friends and the loved ones!
 
We the discovered the absolute Christmas feeling thanks to few  of our favourite activities: we worked on a custom order that had to be finished before the Christmas Eve and we were also definitely inspired from the ultimate Christmas bazaar in the city - Angels and Pigs that took place in SKLADA where many Bulgarian designers exposed their works.

Now in front of our wish list for 2014 we do hope the upcoming year to be inspiring, full with new ideas and thrilling events.

Here are the highlights for our studio during the year:

We started our brand new line for bracelets and bangles
We organized the First Etsy Craft Party for Sofia in June 2013
Participated in few local bazaars
We announced our first give away in our blog
Our Etsy shop was featured in this absolute lovely Puella Aeterna blog.
One pair of earrings was featured in Flappers and Monks
In November 2013 our blog hit 5 years

*Just a kind reminder - our promised give away that had to take place in December 2013 is moved in January 2014 - just stay tuned! 

We would like to thank to all of our friends, partners, followers and of course to thank to our customers!
Have a great New Years Eve celebration!

Five Years

Hello there!

We are happy to announce that our blog has an anniversary!

Yeah, 5 whole years of hard work, many trips, new friends and followers, inspirations, different projects and events.



We passed through restoration of old furnitures, crafting different handmade items and participations in many local bazaars. We experimented with "strange" materials trying to find the hidden elements in ourselves and in the same time to share a little part of our world.
      


These are some unpublished photos from some of our trips.



Thank you for being our readers!

Tools and Jewelries

We like crafty tools and sometimes they were great source of help and inspirations for creating some of the jewelries in our latest collection. The latest pair of earrings is such kind of example. Those of you who follow us in the blog know that few months ago we had the same shaped-tools-earrings made out of yellow and red plexiglass in our shop but right now they are not available.
Now we present to you these blue earrings available here

Hipster necklace design

Happy Monday!
How is your summer? 
Here in Sofia it is so quiet and empty. Everybody is either by the seaside or somewere in the mountains enjoying their vacation. 
It's the perferct time for young drivers to practice their skills as the traffic is almost dead. 
Oh, and it's hot.
The green of the forest and the blue of the sea are out of reach here. The city heat combined with this horrible standstill is wicked and evil. It is the state of affairs that could turn any nice movement into a morbidly depressing suicidal blood bath in the blink of an eye. 
We tried to seek salvation looking through the weekly programme of events. Impressive - there will be a film fest in Maimunarnika in Borisova garden every Monday starting 9 pm. So, if you're up for a cold beer with any friend of yours that might be stupid and unfortunate enough to still be around, and if a good movie is your kind of thing, now is the time to join the event that starts today. Programme offers Soul Kitchen by Fatih Akin. What a great movie that is! Craftwomen recommed it strongly.

For all of you wretched souls who are still in the grasp of the city, still working or just being miserable in any other way, we have prepared a new necklace design. Here is our Light Green Neon Hipster necklace made of laser cut plexiglass, enriched with violet and blue metal chains. The design is availabe in our Etsy shop and it's one of a kind, so you will be unique. Good luck with finding somebody to show off to. Necklace is still a better solution than drugs, save a bullet or a noose. Meh, we all know that a new jewel goes well with a glass of gin tonic to make you feel supersonic.
Now be cool! This is not a call to form a new sect. It’s just a call for solidarity between people not privileged to have the opportunity go to the SEAAAAAA!
Peace be with y’all J

Le bel été

Hey there!

While searching for some inspiring music to start the day with we recalled an absolutely brilliant video of Vanessa Bruno's collection Spring 2010. It's one of those videos that will undoubtedly do the trick if you would need a boost to lift your spirits. Go fly.

That's our inspiration of the day. What's yours?

Here is also a link to the track of Gonzales - Overnight for all piano lovers.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hello August!

Hello guys!

July was full of funny events, hot summer parties and many sales. With August on the way we wish we would have an even more successful month and grasp the chance to enjoy the abondoned beaches nestled in the cool forest hands, while at the same time continue working on new design ideas.

Mood has been all nature-oriented of late. We found this adorable Board in Pinterest by Kethura Young that impressed us and easily took us off in a Dreamland. Worth checking!

That explained, we are ready to share with you 2 of our July treasury lists dedicated to the pure vibes of nature and the desire to travel.

Let's all of us have a great August!

July Etsy Shop Updates

Hello guys!

How has July been for you?

Our plans for meeting the sunrise by the sea on the first morning of July did not quite work as we had hoped. Struggling now to remember if there was any sunlight at all day. Furious and envious as we are we hope many people managed to have a taste of magic and charged for months to come.
Oh, we know the feeling, alright, our hearts are with you.

Back to reality and updating our Etsy shop.



So, you can check out Etsy Shop and stay tuned for the new designs. Hope they will be ready next week.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday, guys!

А month intense with events, personalities and ideas is alsmost gone.
We had a week of cold and rain but summer is about to kick in real big time. The enormous furry ball of a cat at home doesn't like this.
Summer is lazy and smells like gin. We unlike summer are dilligent and hard-working and dedicated to a cause. 

July Morning next week? You up for it?

Gin + July Morning is a combo solid enough to result in a wave of intoxi... aahhhh... inspiration.
You behave now and we promise to reward you with some new designs. Our grain of salt :)

Off to weekend celebrations now!

Etsy Craft Party Photos

Hello guys!

We are back with the aftermath from the Etsy Craft Party.
It was a great day! We had fresh local artists, exchanged new ideas, and enjoyed some well-earned cool drinks in the garden of Art Hostel Sofia.
Many kids attended the event with their parents and contributed to a friendly and easy-going atmosphere. The handmade crowns and moustaches were good enough to bring smiles on people's faces.

All the participants and guests seemed satisfied. That will be a firm base for future events.
Well in, ladies and gentlemen! Thank you all!
