A bit of Spring …

flowers

Nature  intrigues our imagination, even affects our emotions  through water, forests,  skies, textures, scents, sounds, colors.

The  most  common but  always  impressive  natural  motif  is  that  of  flowers, used in  numerous ways, from  art  to  home wear  and  from  fashion  to cooking.

floral cakesAfter  all, there  isn’t  a man   who hasn’t  offered  a  flower  to  his  girl or  a  woman  who  will  not  smile  in  the  view  of  a  floral  wedding  cake…

Bearing in mind  that flowers  are always in trend,  our  team  presents  a  range  of  unique floral rings.

Their vivid colors make them look like sugar flowers on a cake which I can’t wait to bite. How about you?

The whole collection has four pieces, as  the  four stages  of  our  lives.              Each one has its specific name, Pure Love, Spring Time, Monet’s garden and Private Moments.

pure love

Do you still remember that day when riding with him on his bike  you cruised along the streets?   Your hands on his waist. The whole world sharing your laughter.……Happiness seemed unending.

spring

……………………..

.

.Delicate and .charming flowers, fill the mountains during the spring, symbolizing the energy of life. Just give me sunshine, I can bloom!!!

private moments

Everyone has  a secret garden within them, where a certain person, an object or a memory is  hidden  away from the rest of the world.   This is the softest but also the most beautiful  place in our hearts.

monet

Monet, respecting nature’s ingenious creativity, he deliberately never  trimmed his  garden, just left it to grow freely.   Hopefully we can  recreate Monet ‘s garden in our lives,  allowing  growth  to follow  the direction of the heart…

This wonderful  collection  is  made by  ‘The Duck and the Sesame’, a brand who creates one of a kind, handmade jewelry,  with care, memories and recycled material. duck Each item, is made from  a  vintage  china  porcelain  broach which  has been  carefully redesigned into a  unique ring.   Wear it to the afternoon tea party with all your Sisterhood; or wear it to a dinner with your Mr. right.              Just make it bloom between  your fingers …..

Craftworks Cambodia

‘’Craftworks Cambodia is an organization working to provide vocational training and marketing skills to home based producers through the sale of contemporary arts and crafts items (…….)  made  from recycled   and  sustainable  materials (……..)  based on the finest aesthetic and artistic traditional workmanship of Cambodia ’’

We all have read   similar  descriptions many times. However  the  more  you  browse   in  Craftworks Cambodia site,   the  more   you  realize    the  underestimated  truth   behind  the  words :

First, you  are bewildered  by the materials – but  we’ll  refer   to  them  further on.

Then    you  are  amazed with  the  artists’   creativity good  taste  and  special  abilities  ( no,  the   artists    cannot  fly  but  being   able  to  knit a fashionable  backpack  when  you  have  lost  your  sight  needs more than  talent … ).

You  might  also  spare  a thought about  their fortitude  and stamina when  reading  their  personal stories  or  even  catch yourself smiling   from  the  philosophical   irony   of  turning  empty bullets shells  –  that  have killed  your  family –   into  pendants  bearing   the  tree  of  life….

But  enough  said, enjoy some  pictures of   the  Craftworks Cambodia    products   that  you  can  find  on their  site.

Oh, and as for the  materials  mentioned  above,  try  to  spot  the recycled  cement, rice  or  fish  bags, bomb cells, inner  tubes  etc.
