Handmade jewelry

When I was a little girl I had a lot of dreams, mostly nightmares with evil witches. But one night I dreamed that I found several boxes filled with beautiful jewelry under my bed. I was overwhelmed and so happy, and looked at every single piece with a lot of joy.
My dream was so realistic that – waking-up – I crawled under my bed to find these boxes and to look at them again. I felt for the jewelry under my bed in the front and in the back, but it wasn’t there anymore. I started to cry in despair and couldn’t understand it at all.
Many years later I remembered this dream and thought: it was a prophecy! If you would look under my bed nowadays you would find a box with jewelry!
Today I can show you my latest oeuvre: eight brooches I made in the last weeks. I worked every day in my cellar and felt like a storage reservoir that was nearly overflowing, because I had so many ideas.
All these brooches were made out of Sterling silver with corals, pearls, aquamarine and a orthoceras (fossil) etc. I photographed all these pieces in my garden, some on slate, some on flowers, some on leafs, one on agaric.
My favorite style is art nouveau. I’m sure you can see that in my work.

    • Thanks a lot, Debi. My head is filled with a lot of designs always, and nearly everything (beautiful) I look at gives me some sort of inspiration. I guess we have imagination and creativity in common, have a wonderful week-end, regards Mitza

    • That’s really funny, Tom. I didn’t know the exact name but I thought, Tom will write it to me. Isn’t that prophecy, too, hehe?? Good to know somebody so intelligent. 🙂


    • Thanks a lot for your wonderful words. I love this work and I love to do things in a big way and, of course, I love to photograph, draw etc. The days are too short to do all my hobbies. Thanks again, have a wonderful day, regards Mitza
