Mix of cultures.

To be found under: 
Blue, yellow, turquoise>white

What do you see when you look at this ornament? 
A folk inspired colors? maybe indios, Maya?

Or maybe Norwegian style pattern and design?

Does it look a bit preppy? The 90's with united colors of Bennetton, Ralph Lauren...

I love getting inspired by all kinds of styles and periods and then mix them all up. 
Now, I can see this ornament fanhing from a very unconventional Christmas tree, but also as a colorful window decoration.....actually they are so much fun, you could wear it as a pendant from a necklace.

Whatever you feel like - Enjoy it!

And make sure to have a look in my shop to see my different designs.

They are all unique, as I decide spontaneously, just as inspiration hits me, how each piece should look like. Sometimes this is a process over hours as I lay it by side thinking it's ready....but looking later at it I feel like extending the design. 
Well, it also happens that I am not happy at all and decide to polish it all off and start over again.

Not only the paint, but also the disc itself is handmade by me.

ETSY October trends.

I personally like products that tell you a story. May it be that they are vintage and have "history", or a photograph that captures a fragment of a tale. Or the ones that make you come up with new fantastic stories and ideas.

After having been featured so many times these last days, it is time to give so gratitude to all those brilliant curators. So here is my tribute to ETSY October trends 2011
