Ice world

We got freezing rain the other day. Is it wrong to get excited by a freezing rain storm? I mean, not precisely excited about the dangerous driving/walking conditions but there's something magical in seeing everything covered by ice. It's like a crystal world. And when the sunshine hits the ice, is absolutely stunning :)

On Vacations!

Photo of our Celebration of the beginning of vacations for me!

Yep, I'm officially on vacations, yay!!

To say this past couple of months have been hectic is an understatement: crazy jewelry making; craft shows and a couple episodes of colds and coughs we still are battling to get rid of! phew! I was dreaming of the day I see my Etsy shop closed for a couple weeks and just relax and enjoy :)

The Etsy shop will be closed until mid January (haven't decide exactly when), but if you'd like to see photos of my jewelry, you can check my Facebook page ( for that and for updates :)

I think you'll see me more around here, though, as I'll have some extra time on my hands to enjoy my blogging ;)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I hope to see you around!

Puces POP Weekend

What a weekend I had: Puces POP was awesome!! Last week I worked my ass off to finish etsy orders and build up stock for the craft show and although by the end of the week I was incredibly tired, just entering the puces pop venue filled me up with energy and excitement!

It was a great weekend full of friends, lost of sales, lots of awesome purchases, meeting new costumers and also eating lots of cupcakes :) It was also like a weekend outside as I was just in front of the door, it was opened and it was so cooooolddddd! brrrr. The first day it took me by surprise but on the second day I went very prepared for the weather inside with my big ass winter boots and coat. You'll see the photos ;)

Some are photos of my booth and some of my favourite vendors at the fair. I wish I had been able to take more of favourite vendors because there was such great, great stuff, but I was so busy and couldn't go around much!

Holiday Puces POP!

Next Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of December I'll be selling my jewelry at Puces POP craft & DIY fair here, in beautiful Montreal :)

If you love original and cool handmade stuff, you don't want to miss Puces POP because is going to be LOAD of the awesome creations of more than 85 local artisans.

This is going to be the second time I'm going to be selling at the fair. Last time I had such a great time and meet lots of lovely people :) not to mention, I bought some really awesome things ;D I've never been able to leave Puces POP without a thing or two (everything is so cool!).

Here are some of the vendors I'm looking forward to see their creations at the fair:

Yay! So excited for Puces POP :D Wish me luck!
And I wish you all a very lovely day :D

Les Joailliers du Dimanche

Oh, what a weekend! both in the nice and not-so-nice ends. For one, I was so fortunate to be part once again of an exhibition/sale organized by Les Joailliers du Dimanche collective and got to meet new local costumers and fellow jewellers. For the other part, I spend the whole weekend so sick, with cough and aches everywhere, so it was exhausting! But totally worth it :)

I took some photos of the event and of my fellow jewellers, they are all so talented! be sure to visit their websites to see more of their work :)

Meeeee and my little helper!

Anne-Sophie Vallee, Collectif en Devenir and Lidia R.

And the view from my table :)

I want to thank Andree Anne for inviting me and for always being so supportive! Also thanks to all the organizers, it was such a great event and everything was lovely!

That's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Things I love today

What a great surprise to see Seventy Tree Etsy shop open again! Although Kerry from Seventy Tree had her Big Cartel shop open all this time, as I spend so much time on Etsy, it's great to be just "around the corner" from Kerry's wonderful, quirky, cute illustrations!

Other thing my eyes are happy about is that Erin Dollar has a new line of hand printed pillow covers and tea towels and they are extremely cool. Check them out:

That's all for today! I hope you are having a great week, thanks for stopping by!

Bits from the studio after a very productive weekend

A month ago I was complaining about how slow sales were; now I'm so scared with the amount of work I have! particularly because I have two upcoming craft fairs (exciting!): one at the end of this month and the other on December.

Last weekend I was extremely productive and managed to make lots of pretty jewels :) As you can see on the photos, I made my thunder necklace in 14k gold, it looks so lovely. And my favorite is the desert rock stacked rings in gold and oxidized silver, they look gorgeous!

Now what I need to do is to photograph them and post them on my Etsy shop :) Oh, and the lovely rainbow bracelet above, I made it as a special order for a lovely costumer, I'm really happy with the results!

Last but not least, the lovely postcard you see on the first image (from Audrey Jeanne) is a gift from my sweet friend Clemece, I love it! thanks Clemence!!!

I hope you have a great week :D
