since i´m too busy (and sick) to take pictures myself
this is the perfect opportunity to show you some pictures taken by RAINER 
when he visited our workshop together with the lovely JULIE
(back when it was not winter...)
we had a wonderful time
W showing some of his techniques
telling everybody several times - like predicted - he wants to work i an ample hall once more
instead of our tiny messy workshop
and we finished the last prototypes for the PUZZLE RINGS
he told me to take off my scarf
since no sane goldsmith would saw wearing a scarf
well, now it´s so cold (and we have a cold, too) we´re also wearing down jackets and hats
the wood fired oven is doing its best
but we´re still freezing
find some more pictures HERE
again: some videos
Jay Z goes THE ARTIST IS PRESENT - i like the dancer with the golden cap
END THE STRAIGHT WORLD ORDER - made my sister stop shaving her legs

all pictures by RAINER EIDEMÜLLER


we couldn´t be happier to show you our collaboration with the lovely Paula Valentim from OTCHIPOTCHI
(i guess you all know i´m a big fan of her work)
together we came up with a small limited edition of seasonal things
combining delicate white porcellain and brass bits
simple and clean yet festive decorations for your house
some other things:
a nice write up on I AM THE LAB including a very flattering comparison
i like it when jewellery bears a MEANING
does anyone elsa have this WOOL BLAZER and can´t figure it out?
nice things in the WRAP SHOP


i´m very honoured to be part of the second edition of the lovely HEIMAT zine
they included some words and pictures of mine
about moldy plums and yeasted buns called Rohrnudeln made with them before they start rotting away
my sister E says i should avoid leaving the impression that i think i´m a poet because i´m clearly not
so here it is: I DON´T THINK I´M A POET
i just write stuff - that´s all
there are a lot of nice participants
like JULIE, NINA, AMMENMÄRCHEN, ULMA and much more
you can order it HERE or over at PRINTE
Alma put together a GIFT GUIDE suggesting to give a BLUEBELL NECKLACE to your sisters
i´d recommend the same:) 
you could also add some BLACK & WHITE CHRISTMAS CARDS
very nice pictures by MIEKE VERBIJLEN
some NASTURTIUMS for this grey November week


a lot of hard work went into our new collection
lots of jewellery, of course 
things to play around with, stackable PUZZLE RINGS, changeable NECKLACES
also a new edition of W´s classic pieces - the W COLLECTION
and there are a few seasonal things like
you´ll find everything in the SHOP
the PEBBLE RINGS are now available custom made
either with a pebble of your own
or one of our little collection
and there´s even more to come...


a little china dove and me
finally finishing the last christmas cards for this season
but i guess it will still take two weeks until everything is finished
and available in the shop
but there will be some very nice things
so do wait up a bit with buying gifts:)
there will even be some colour this time
not only silver and brass
right now i´m stringing the tiniest vintage baroque pearls
combined with corals or turquoise
as you like
got a pilea from ANDREA a couple of weeks back
she was so kind to swap a cutting for some of my geraniums
THE blogger plant i guess
took the picture right after potting it
it has already grown at least three more leaves
leaves are also part of the upcoming OTCHIPOTCHI collection
and obviously a great joy for the cat
what you can´t see is her shaved back
she got a benign lump removed
spent a day walking around like a drunkard and sounding like one too
now she´s as good as new
nature is crazy
chestnuts, primroses and cloves started to bloom again
and the poppies never stopped in the first place
off to making some quince jam for my sisters
after that some more christmassy work
