I've been exploring with metallic inks on my jewelry. I like the result A LOT and maybe will stick to bright colors+metallic patinas for a while...

For the last couple of years I've enjoyed making some handmade toys for my boys.
This is a present I've made for Theo. He's more into trains and octopus but he certainly enjoys this little family (the favorite characters are the kitty and the baby)
The house is a recycled little box of mandarin oranges with paper mache roof and decoration.
The little puppets are made with polymer clay for the faces and the bodies are a crocheted circle shaped as a cone.

My friend Jasmine is travelling to Israel and she asked me to make a special piece to wear on her trip. She said: make me something "extravagant". Being the artist and illustrator that she is I'm used to see her surrounded by beautiful bright colors so I've interpreted her request in my own way and created this necklace for her.

Manon in Arles is a very romantic necklace with a vintage, French inspiration.
I imagine Van Gogh's lover would have worn it during their time in Arles...
(Maybe in an apocryphal history at least)

And after I've painted them this is how the necklaces look like...
The necklace is called "Diana's Morning" and it has some variations:
