here we are:
do take a LOOK at all of those pieces i made W create in the last months
we were quite amazed again by the natural beauty of the stones we used
they really were a treat (and pain - we managed to break only one during the process) 
to work with and of course they had to be set in gold
to make them shine even fancier
.
it was our "hardest" collection so far
the SUNS were actually drawn when i could only use my left hand
(but now they look so very hopeful and bright)
and in the process of creating all of the pieces i had to say good bye to my old way of working
and W hab to take on tasks we wasn´t used to so far
.
also there is a HUGE SAMPLE SALE going on
where you can find all of our discontinued pieces
.
and then there is this sweet mention in the HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
of our stockist MAKERS&BROTHERS

i took our ADVENT WREATH / YEAR ROUND BOWL for a spin in front of the camera
and hired my mum to adorn some oranges with cloves 
these are some very fine smelling decorations
.
also somehow christmas time ALWAYS seems to make me want to burn stuff
this time a whole cardboard tree
.
it shouldn´t take that much longer and our very special one of a kind collection is ready
we worked with lots of agate stones and W had to add very complicated gold settings
something that he isn´t too fond of but it was definitely worth it
.
a few things that touched me in the last weeks:
only today: MIMA´S NIKOLAUSSTIEFEL wird für einen guten zweck verlost
und wir dürfen dabei sein!











17.11.16







sometimes i´m wondering if it´s odd to be working in the LOVE business being single
but so far it´s running smoothly and at least i got a appropriate hat by now
.
and yes - i am the boss as you can see by the admiring looks of my two helpers
i had written again how i´m behaving like a mild tyrant and everyone has to follow my lead
when working on my projects
but somehow all those things happening in the last weeks made me rethink those words
because being the boss and actually having to make sure everything is executed to perfection, my perfection
has nothing to do with "not being very nice" and worrying about not being very ladylike
W is actually admiring the fact that i´m able to stand my ground and won´t back down 
so why do i still feel it is a bit "wrong" to do so?
is this my internal misogyny? 
is this why i was feeling like i had the "wrong" feelings when i got angry about one of my professors
telling us that places to study design are wasted on girls since they stop anyway as soon as they are starting to have babies
"wrong feelings" because he´s just telling the truth or because it´s actually funny or because that´s just how he is
and of course Anna got all worked up again - eye-roll - also why isn´t she smiling? 
in case he was actually trying to make us angry by what he said so we would work even harder - good job
because that´s exactly what i did, just to prove him wrong
yet i still don´t think it is okay to say such things and I DO NOT HAVE TO SMILE JUST BECAUSE
(please let me know a good answer to the smile-request, it drives me mad)
and is internal misogyny the reason so many women voted like they did? (more about that HERE)
this is so very shocking... 
so i´m starting to change myself right now:
I AM THE BOSS AND I DON´T HAVE TO SMILE WHEN I DON´T WANT TO
THE FACT THAT MY LAUGH IS ANNOYING DOESN´T CHANGE THAT
ALSO MY EDUCATION WAS NOT WASTED ON ME NO MATTER WHAT I DO WITH IT
.
two posts about the election i liked: EVENCLEVELAND and C´EST CLARINETTE 
+ JESSICA STANLEY´S collection of links
.
this has to be our biggest BARRETTE whole sale order so far
those are already on their way to to the MAKERS&BROTHERS holiday market in Ireland
which basically means we´re now almost sold out of a lot of styles 
and they will not come back
so do order now in case you´ve got your eyes on one of them
as you can see, we put a lot of care in making them 
and the WSAKE workers get fed very well to keep their strength up
.
