Xenia Walschikow jewelleryOh boy, that was a difficult day. I mean the day Sabine and I visited the Jewellery Art Fair 2017 (Sieraad Art Fair). We both had already spent all of our money. The last place we should be was at this jewellery fair. We were tempted so many times and we would have succumbed if it wasn’t for lack of time. I didn’t look at the information before going and wrongly assumed that two and a half hours would be enough. Enough for 120 jewellery stands/artists… NOT. All of a sudden it was time to leave and see Anke with her newborn daughter. At the end of this post you will see some photos of that visit, but first the jewellery temptations. View Post

Citytrip to ParisTrust me, there are days and weeks when nothing exciting happens. Just work, eating and sleeping. September and October though, were crazy months with lots of trips. As you know, Ron and I went to Maastricht for two days as we couldn’t go to Paris. A month later I went on a citytrip to Paris to meet Susan of Une Femme d’un certain âge. Our first encounter was two years ago when she visited Amsterdam with her husband. And we met in Paris last year as well. It is beginning to be a yearly event. Which I like as it is always nice meeting her. View Post

Isabel Marant necklaceThere it is, my Isabel Marant necklace, present from Ron when we were in Maastricht. It is such an unusual thing. The cream leather strings can move up and down and by doing so, the golden part in the middle will sit lower or higher on your body. I fell in love with it. As the jeweller (Clio) gave details about the necklace, in my mind I could see the price going up and up. Turned out it was affordable. I was ready to purchase when Ron beat me to it. View Post
