Oh, hi!

Oh, it's been long since the last time I posted! Been so busy, so busy! Can you believe is October already? This year is in such a hurry!

A few days ago I received such exciting mail: a fashion magazine that contains a wonderful editorial by photographer Tina Picard, styled by Marie-Eve Venne, called Rock Stars and guess what? One of my SOLSTICE necklaces and ring are featured! I'm really happy, this is the first time my work is on a magazine, and such a cool one, and what's best in such a great feature!

I'll show you some of the photos of the editorial!

 That's my necklace, yay!

How awesome is that?! Tina Picard is such an amazing photographer and Marie-Eve did a stellar job with all the looks she picked for this shoot, I'm so honored she picked my work!

Check the entire editorial here.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Canadian Summer

Family, friends, forests, getting lost, finding ourselves again, a lake, the trees, the sunset, sand under my feet, blue sky over our heads, a bonfire. Those are the words that better describe our weekend. How refreshing to spend the day with loved ones, exploring new places!

I took the lake photos on my friend`s parents house in the Laurentians where we went to say farewell to my friend who`s leaving for Australia next week. I`ll miss her :(

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for reading this. I hope you are doing great and I wish you a beautiful week!

The Angry Weather Spring-Summer 2013

After many months of designing, planing, making, photographing, editing and organizing, I'm very happy to present to you my new collection!

I call it Solstice as I longed to capture the sunshine and the long hours of bright, golden light during the hot summer days into a jewel that felt very easy to wear. To do this I used sterling silver and bronze materials and in many cases used both of them in one piece to take advantage of the contrasts and luminosity.
This collection also represent something important for me as I conceived the 'feel' of the jewellery through an inner search for a simpler, uncomplicated way of life. 

For the aesthetic of this new line I was also inspired by primitive jewelry and shapes: what people used to make thousands of years ago when the tools and techniques were in a first stage of development and the jewels were a representation of those early ideas and understandings of the forces of nature, the worship of the sun, and the changes of the Stations through basic forms.

All in all, this new line is full of beautiful, carefully constructed pieces that have a minimalist air and that feel effortless to wear: in the last months this line is almost the only jewellery I'm using and I got to tell you: I'm in love with it and I can't take it off (not that I want to!)! 

Come see and click the images to know more!

Inspiration that comes from objects: I found this very old bronze block and tiny bronze hammer and I knew immediately I wanted to experiment with them to make new things. The block is a tool that jewellers use to place rings and mark them on the inside with purity marks (karats, 925, etc) or their logos. Of course I had different ideas for it!

I don't usually make long earrings but I was so inspired to make these. What is a summer day without a pair of dangle earrings to adorn you ears under the golden sunlight, right? 

And bracelets! oh, dear bracelets how I adore you. These lovelies look effortless and feel wonderful.They look so beautiful by themselves and when staking several of them they make such a cool statement. 

For my necklace collection I went for sunshine and objects that would be super easy to wear on a hot summer day but also that look delicate, cool and uncomplicated with just any casual outfit. 

I think the names I put them reflect pretty much their feel based in metal combinations: The Southern Sun necklace is made of sterling silver and bronze and the combination of these two metals give it a warm feeling, like the sun back in Mexico.

The Northern Sun necklace is all shiny sterling silver and is all about those beautiful sunny days in the middle of Winter were the sun rays are as cold as the ice all around. Beautiful Canada.

And the Midnight Sun Necklace is made of oxidized sterling silver and bronze. The combination of these two colors is absolutely rich and makes me think of the summer sun in the northern -and southern- most parts of the planet where the sun shines strong in the middle of the night.

And that is it! Thank you very much for going through all that explanation! I'm incredibly happy with my Solstice collection and couldn't go without telling you how much I love it and how much your support and encouraging words that you kindly leave me through FB, Twitter, Etsy, IG and emails mean to me! I hope you love this collection as much as I do!

Ever since we moved to our new place a bit more than a year ago we'd been searching for day cares for our little girl without much success. You see, here, the day cares have ridiculous waiting lists, some of those lists full of people waiting for years. Of course there are ones with places available but usually those are the ones which you just don't feel like leaving your children at.

So, as a owner of my own business and  time, I decided to keep my girl with me and take care of her myself until we got a place in a daycare we wanted.

And that time has come. My little girl had her first day at daycare yesterday and she's very happy. Me? not so much, you see, I miss her. I'm so used to hanging on with her all day every day and although I'm happy I have my time back and she's going to meet new friends and play and learn, I can't help but feel a hole inside me.

You are allowed to call me ridiculous if you will, I kind of know I'm being silly but she's just so fun to hang with plus I keep thinking nobody is going to take care if her as good me. 

But well, see, this is not just her learning and adapting to a new routine, but is a learning experience for me as well. And I need to get myself together and adapt. But for now I just feel a little bit holey.

Tea and Kate loveliness.

I don't know if I have told you but Instagram is one of mu favourite things to spend hours at, looking at gorgeous pictures and getting the inspiration flowing by admiring the taste in beautiful things of people around the world.

I'm also very glad that I've got to "meet" fantastic people over there, some of them I had meet already in person due to us being 'instagram friends' and let me tell you, it's not difficult to feel that way as you are looking into the daily life of many people and sharing your own experiences with them.

One of those persons I meet on IG is Kate Bradbury, a lovely woman from the UK, mom of four beautiful kiddos that has an exquisite taste for beautiful things. The photos she shares everyday from her home, her kids and the things she likes are full of inspiration: minimalist style photos splashed with color, happiness and whimsy all around.

She very recently opened a website where she has for sale a ton of whimsical goodness, directly from her I-Love-list. So, I was completely honoured when she told me she wanted to sell my jewelry there!

Please visit her website and blog, you can thank me later!
