Summer 2014 has come, stationed and now it’s about to speed off like a TGV train; au revoir mon été! With an “out of the blue” increase of weddings (or perhaps just budgets) and an interest for custom rings, I chose to stay stateside to fulfill my busy-ness’ (my father’s nickname for business) beating heart. However, feeling slightly stagnant and needing some worldly inspiration and a breath of new air, I decided to meander through photos taken during the past few summer and fall travels; not for the purpose of lamenting during this stay-cation summer, yet as a reminder of the people I’ve met, sites that were seen and moments that were created…
Paris in an Autumn Nutshell (November, 2013)
With great adventure, comes great surprises! Unknowingly, Paris was hosting a self-guided tour around the city to visit galleries, shops and boutiques that hold some amazing Art Jewelry. P.S. if you’re there in the fall, don’t miss out on Circuits Bijoux.
Pieces from Iki Gallerie
Street Art of Paris… After seeing a fair amount of Invader, I decided to start clicking away at some new trek stoppers.
Art by Caroline Lee Hanquiez
Walking down the street, my friend and I noticed a woman, well dressed and sporting the latest handbag. Of course I was discretely trying to get a glimpse her bijoux-led accessories, of which there wasn’t much of except… a bird (faux)… nestled in her tight as can be French twist.
Mighty sails across the bay.
My ‘Poppy’ perch in Saint-Tropez; quiet from the roaring sea and sails.
Goldschmied (Goldsmiths) in München, Germany (2012)
Alluring Pieces found at Galerie Artefakt
Bird’s the word on Munich as well… this time on a trolly with a pinwheel.
La Biennale di Venezia… (2013)
-Maze (indeed it is!)-
“Art is a world where one should say,
what they intend to portray,
and what the patron shall convey.”
Stumbled upon this little jewel of gallery… Oh My Blue showcases amazing art jewelry from artists around the world.
Loved this little surprise (pop of gold), found at Officine 904
“Grace of a Gesture,”
… was a quote slathered on an empty wall in Venice; so incredibly true.
Of course we mustn’t forget about the poppies…
From the Rhine…
Merci, arrivederci et gute nacht!
