Halloween Energy

Halloween Energy

Halloween almost

Are you ready to point lace decor for Halloween? I have been creating for a while ago Halloween patterns.

My little girl is Halloween crazy and so every year, we try something fun out. From crazy costumes to accessories and home decor.

This year she will be Wednesdays from the Addams Family…and so we play with collars and hangman’s ropes….But the classic ghost is still a must, so here is a pattern available.

I remember when she picked the color combo…. an exciting time, coz she got to help out. I did a classic design First and then we went wild…

What do you prefer? Truly, I can’t make up my mind…

Also when it comes to Halloween, I like to add leaves, and here is one motive that turned out ok. To make it more interesting, I created a combo of crochet and Romanian Lace.

You can find the pattern in the store or on Etsy store HERE. Let me know, what would you like to create, a ghost or a leaf.

Also if you like to be updated with specific news from us, you can pick between Romanian Lace, Art or Reiki. Check out Bottom of page!

A touch of purple…………….. A touch of black

A touch of purple…………….. A touch of black

A touch of Purple….A touch of Black 

Have you ever asked yourself what attacks you to a colour? Me, always and every time it;s a different answer! Now I always liked Purple.

Not any kind of purple….. a dark deep, velvety purple…. and a touch of black….. I love purple and been always attracted to agate and amethyst. Purple Agate is one stone that I use on the regular in my designs. It calm the wearer, it hold on to good energy and creates a wonderful save environment for the one who wears it.

A reminder that I love Lavender, that I love creativity, luxury and royalty a colour that is a great representative for peace, dignity and mystery as well as magic, this is purple to me. It also represents the Crown Chakra ( head Chakra) it shows your connection to the universe and spiritual part in you. It;s your connection to creativity

How does purple make you feel? It makes me feel great. It makes me smile and creative. But how does black make you feel like?Elegant, classic, minimalist  and timeless. This is how it makes me feel.

I also want to you check out the video below. Guo Pei a fantastic Haute Couture designer…. She is amazing. Almost all her designs remind me of Romanian Lace and this last collection was exceptional. The

Isn’t her style amazing? The inspiration of the dark ages architectural design is stunning. The structure is fantastic and is so detailed. We lace makers can easy get inspired and create stunning Romanian Point Lace.

Did a colour ever inspire you? If yes, comment below and let’s talk about!

Homage Handmade….Why I do what I do ….

Homage Handmade….Why I do what I do ….

Why I do what I do….. I create ‪‎handmade‬ fashion accessories‬ unnamed (40)and clothing‬ that is done purely by ‪‎hand‬! Some people ask why…. ?! Because the roots of true ‪‎fashion‬ are thehands‬, the #hands that ‪‎create‬, and make you the buyer‬ feel truly unique‬ and original‬. Because this was the beginning and ‪‎tradition‬ that needs to stay alive! Because we want to be individuals and we need to stay out in the crowd, especially ‪‎today‬ where everything is not only massproduction‬, but ‪‎fast‬, and‪ ‎mediocre‬ ‪‎quality‬ !

 

We live in a worldhat no eyes of ‪‎consume‬, a world of throw away‬ and to own a piece that is truly made with‪‎love‬, dedication‬, sweat‬ and ‪‎blood‬ is not only‪ ‎rare‬ but ‪‎priceless‬! Not many understand the value‬ of ‪‎true handmade‬ and I believe it;s time to make it clear to the next generations!

 

If we continue like this, one day we wear‪‎ clothes‬ out of pure ‪‎plastic‬!

 

 

 

Make the‪‎ world‬ more beautiful and wear originals! That is why I do what I do! I live for #handmade and unique designs!

So welcome  my little world of design!
