Pearls of Wisdom

New earrings, called Pearls of Wisdom.
They would surely look stunning on an edgier bride!
Made with sterling silver and variously sized freshwater pearls.
The finishing touch - oxidizing silver to a slate gray to offset the demure pearly shine.

I designed them a very long time ago 
and never got a chance to sit down and create.

Probably, I needed that time to perfect them in my head. 
And when I was ready, I made them with lots of l.o.v.e.

Dilapidated Home's Philosophy Lessons

I've noticed this weird crack on the lobby floor of our building some time ago. 
Today, I looked at it for the -th time and it dawned on me.

Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Instagramming Little Moments

A friend of mine got me totally hooked on a funky iPhone photo app Istagram. It is super easy to use and its filters allow you to add a bit of mystery to the pictures that would otherwise look quite ordinary. I absolutely love it! Just yesterday, when I was strolling through Brookline, I captured a few signs of a fast approaching spring.

Reflections in the pools are my all-time favorite theme!

This house looked so sunny in the middle of snow piles. Quite a striking combo!

Pretty wet and dirty...

Thank you, Bean Boots, for saving me this winter!

When I was taking this photo, people gave me strange looks...wonder why?

This house looks so mysterious from the outside. Kind of scary in a way.

Welcome home, baby!

These intricate dangle earrings were inspired by the landscapes of a dear to my heart country in Eastern Europe, Belarus. It is often called blue-eyed Belarus. The symbolism of the name lies in the fact that there is a great number of lakes which look like blue eyes when they reflect the color of the sky. When you drive through the country, you would also notice a lot of coniferous woods with their striking emerald green color. The combination of malachite and amazonite represents just that. I have wire-wrapped a coiled frame around malachite coin and suspended an amazonite briolette right below it. There's lots of movement and the color contrast is really stunning, don't you think?

Red Hot Chilly Valentines

Today I had fun putting together a collection of really spicy creations from Russian artists on Etsy. There's so much talent - it was quite challenging to make my final choice. I had a bunch of favorites! Here's the final product. I hope you'll have a pick at this collection of ultimate sexiness. Maybe, you'll find a gift for yourself or someone special :)

Victorian Dogs

While walking around Boston neighborhoods, I love capturing everyday moments that reflect our time. When I saw these dogs - it seemed like I was taken 100 years back. I had a feeling they were the masters of the house with no human hand in sight. It was a surreal scene. The two buddies just sat still watching life go by.

Have a great week!
