Monday morning mood board

Well, it finally started to freeze in Belgium.
Not good, as our little crocussus and other spring flowers in the garden decided to come and take a peek.
I should be making a black board, but have decided I need some colour input instead, and a warm colour for that.
What better as the colour of the year, which I love anyway: orange.

Hope you get some wamth & positive vibes from this..

Sneak preview for the pop-up shop

Finally the opening of the pop-up shop is near, Jagna & me have been working very hard over the last weekend to get everything finished and ready.
Since I did not want to empty my Etsy shop I have made another line of amber jewelry to sell exclusively in the Pop-Up shop, did end up with putting some of the shop items in there, like my big raw Baltic bracelet which is just too unique to remake..
And here is a sneak preview of some of my new creations you can expect:
It also shows some of the diversity of Amber. Most people still associate amber with the clear honey/cognac colored plastic looking stuff. Which is beautiful and warm, agreed, but personally I go for the raw or yellow.
Also the very dark is stunning, and I find a bit harder to find than the honey/cognac.
Anyway, in the end I love it all, to touch, feel & play around with.

Come and see for yourself: from January 21 till february 25, tuesday till saturday form 11-18h (tue and thursday till 17) at the Lolly Pop-Up shop in the  Aalmoezeniersstraat 22, Antwerp.
Many other Belgian-based Artisans are present, really worth a visit:
