Coins Statement Necklace

"And you know that I know
As long as the wind blows
I always be here
Searching for a silver living in this"
Silver Lining
-Neck Deep


We have new Coin Statement Necklaces in the store, well, actually we listed them a few weeks ago but we haven´t presented them in the blog yet.

We are in love with them,they have old silver finish, handmade by an artisan woman who bases her work in the Turkish jewellery, they  are made of a mixture of silver and zinc, they do not give allergy.

All eyes will be directed to the collar combined with any style, we can see enhancing a basic outfit and accessorising a wedding dress.

No matter if you are 25 or 55, they go with all ages and are the only necessary to look beautiful, cool, chic, and boho, they are almost effortlessly.

Take them with tank tops as in the photo, or plain pieces to give the necessary attention.

What would you wear it with?

Happy Weekend!

Watercolor Wall(Paper)
Lately, we’ve been seeing some appealing images of watercolor walls. We thought, we’ll do that ourself. Easier said than done. From our limited knowledge of it, the beauty of watercolor has much to do with the paper, which allows the paint to bleed in interesting ways. So we started hunting for solutions.
After reading some interesting watercolor techniques here, including using salt, we found some beautiful examples
…we were just hatching possible estrategias for watercolor walls when we came across the origins of the ones we’ve seen on design blogs: take a look at Black Crow Studios they makes watercolor wall paper in large scale non-repetitive designs.

Our Great Ball Light Garland

"We round a racetrack through your mom's kitchen chairs

And fought the shadows back down your dark basement stairs.
I lit a match and let it catch to light up the room."
Hot Air Balloon
Owl City

You can make it or buy it!

It’s one of those ideas perfect for every occasion, to light the wall, the window, the ceiling, to use it in a party, inside or outside if weather permits. There are hundreds of designs, materials and colours that you can apply to it to match your design scheme.

You will need:
  • Twine in the colour of your choice. The wire's thickness depends on your taste
  • PVA Glue ~ About 1/2 litre, This is Polyvinyl acetato
  • Cornflour
  • Warm water
  • 20 Balloons
  • Marker pen
  • Vaseline
  • Disposable tin
  • A long piece of wood, as a stick or a broom to hang the balloons
  • Twinkly light garland to attach the twine-balls
  • Lightbulb garland

We show you how to make it in a few steps!

First of all blow-up the balloons, one for each ball and draw a circule around the top using your marker so you know where to wrap your trine up to, then smear the balloons with a thin coating of Vaseline, this will stop your twine from sticking to the balloons.

Tie a piece of string to the ends of each balloon and then around an old piece of wood between two fixed points. This allows you to work on them while the balloons are hanging. Make sure you have something underneath to avoid the drips.

To make your glue mixture, take the disposable tin and mix up PVA glue, a few tablespoons of corn flour and warm water. You want the mixture to be smooth, not too runny, and make sure there’s lots of it as trine is quite absorbent.

This is the key part. Take the twine and dip it into the glue mixture until it is entirely soaked, then start to wrap it around the balloon, both vertically and horizontally until you get the desired effect. When you have finished, snip off the end of the twine and tuck it underneath another piece so it doesn’t stick out. Do the same with every balloon.

Leave to dry overnight. You will find that your twine balls have now gone hard, if they haven’t then just leave them a little longer until they are fully set. Pop them, then remove the balloons. You can spray paint the trine balls into a desired colour or leave it in its natural colour if you prefer and attach to your light garland.

Would you like to give a go or would you like to buy it in our store:
