If you have been reading my blog you already know how much I love my textiles.

Many years ago when I lived in Amsterdam I discovered a shop called Capsicum (means Pepper in Latin as the owners last name is this one). A place where one can find delightful textiles, cottons and silks. They do have their own range of products and also sell items they find on the villages, in India..of course. Fantastic discovery.

More Pirates

I keept thinking about the pirates. My jewelry has something about them, or may be a lot. A bit of rebel too...but also freedom and travells. And friendship.

Turkish Pirates

What a fun party. I had some problems dressing up my kids, but I did manage to put some of my treasures on them. They wanted to be spiderman and batman...but that is not so great as Turkish Pirates, I sayed!
I would have like them to wear more necklaces, rings and stuff all over, but no way, they sayed... I think they looked fantastic (I wanted to wear a custume also, but it was only for boring, I would have been dressed up as the wife of the Sultan...with an amazing silk dress and tongs of jewelry..

I took the boys to Madrid to the Museun of Natural Science. We saw so many animals and amazing stuff, wouldn´t it be nice to make a piece based on a shell? I already got some ideas, but in the mean time I thought of the little dragonfly earings of my new collection. A museum with jewelry inspired on insects, animals would be something!

I have been listening to different speaches on creativity. A man called Kim Robinson says that creative people are necessary and school system should focus more on the creative aspect of the student. It made me remember how much I suffered in math classes but how much I enjoyed dance or music, not to mention crafts.

Wood Crafts

In my house there are a few pieces of forniture made of wood, hand made. I have carried them all over the different homes I have lived, and at some point they became part of my life. Of course I had to I would give them away, but it will make me so sad...

Here is where it happens, where my books and textiles are, and the stones. Sometimes I get the design of a new piece in the most unpected place, such as waiting for the kids in school, walking in a city, on the line of the fruit shop, or as I iron. But in my studio is where I concentrate the most and the best.
