Happy Friday! A new piece in the shop I would like to introduce is the Gold Branch Bangle Bracelet. This bracelet represents a tree trunk with interwoven grooves. The seamless design is curvy and no two are the same! At the moment it is only available in 24K Gold Vermeil and comes in one size. A perfect piece for summer or to layer with.

Hope you are all enjoying Spring! Here in Sweden the drab weather has finally gone, it’s still on the chilly side but I have spotted some sprouts of flowers in the forests. I absolutely love the summer so I am really looking forward to spending time outside and working on some new jewelry pieces. Today in this post I wanted to introduce the new birthstone bracelets. These bracelets are actually quite simple and made from black leather cord, sterling silver, and crystal.

Each bracelet has a hammered sterling silver slider and you can choose your birthstone and customize it. You can also choose your bracelet size. I love that they are so dainty and subtle at the same time. At the moment they are only available on black leather cord, but it’s possible other leather colors may be available in the future. I have already had some requests come in to feature two birthstones for couples – an idea I hadn’t even thought of! But of course, and as always I am happy to customize this piece with 2 birthstones either on the same slider or on it’s own slider.

Looking back at 2013 there are so many accomplishments I have made, and for 2014 I have alot of improvements planned. In addition to improving and learning Swedish, I hope to have a swedish website by the end of this year with an improved shopping cart. I have begun a few collaborations with some online Swedish retailers selling a few selected products through their channels. In addition I will be working with a friend who will be helping me with some PR this Spring. There is alot to learn, especially when in a new country where your still learning the language! Of course, some new jewelry will be arriving in Spring, but I will not be giving any hints away just yet!
I’ll be taking a much needed vacation from 20 January to 1 February and enjoying some sun in beautiful Florida! I plan on many long lazy days laying on the beach with an ice cold pina colada, some of my favourite magazines (in English yay!! ), and some good music! There are alot of things back home that I miss, including some great restaurants, so I am really looking forward to that. My shop will remain open however all orders placed during that time will be shipped upon my return.
I wish you all a wonderful January and a great start to 2014. Until next time….
Hey Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your holidays so far. My husband and I will be hosting for this year’s Christmas dinner and so we will be cooking lots of Swedish Christmas food including a roasted Skinka (Ham), Homemade Köttbollar (Meatballs), Senap and Egg Sill (RawFish with Mustard and Eggs – a typical Swedish dish that is actually very tasty!), Lax med Gurka och Dill (Salmon with Gurka and Dill), Salad with Pomegranate, Feta Cheese and Spinach, Risgrynspudding med Björnbar (a Swedish Rice Pudding Dish with berries), as well as some Swedish candy like “Choklad Bollar med Mandel” (Chocolate Balls with Nuts) and some sweet Christmas Fudge! It’s not the American style Christmas Turkey dinner that I grew up with but I just love the variety.
I would love to hear some of what you are planning to make or have at your Christmas dinner this year!
My jewelry shop will stay open and if you are in Sweden you still have time to place your order today to receive it in time for Christmas. You can also get Free Shipping using coupon code: FRIFRAKT until 31/12! There are also some sale items in the shop now!
I hope you enjoyed learning some Swedish food vocabulary! I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year 2014! Best wishes! – Melissa
Today I am featuring the “Sparrow & Cage” Necklace. This is one of my favorite new pieces! The gold version of this necklace is cast in pure Italian Bronze and finished with a thick layer of 24K Gold. The chain itself is 14K Gold. It is also available in a Sterling Silver Version.

Did you know that the Sparrow is one of the most widely used objects in jewelry design? This goes back hundreds of years, but it was believed in many cultures that the sparrow symbolized good luck, fortune, love, dedication, trust and safe journey. Specifically, with this necklace the meaning is symbolic in that the sparrow reminds us to use our creativity in everyday life situations – think outside the box (in this case – “the cage”), and be creative in solving everyday obstacles and difficulties.

What I love most about the sparrow, which I think I may have mentioned in one of my previous posts, is that the sparrow it may travel great distances but it always returns to its home. I think that resonates well with many of us – for we may leave home, go on a journey, but we always have a special place that we call home and return to at some point in our life.
Don’t forget you can save 20% off this necklace until tomorrow using coupon code: HOLIDAY. Enjoy!
Hey everyone! I would like to share with you one of my latest creations – the Honeycomb necklace! It’s a bit different and abstract and unique too! When I think of a honeycomb I think of nature and the honeycomb itself – something that has taken time and effort to build and is a perpetual source of life, energy and nourishment. And from that comes good health and happiness. Lately honeycombs and hexagonal shapes have been popping up quite a bit – so why not wear it in a fantastic jewelry piece. Don’t forget you can get 20% off this piece in my pre-holiday sale through 31/10. Enjoy!
Hope you are enjoying the leaves fall and the beautiful fall season! I just love the colors that Autumn brings. Bronze, Gold, Orange – everywhere! Here in the Swedish countryside it is so picturesque at this time! The wild deers who had been away for a few months are now back from their 6 month summer hiatus. Last year each morning I fed them during the cold winter months and they have returned again to the area!
With my shop it’s been a good time to get ready with my inventory, clean up my product line and take a breather before the holiday season starts and it becomes manic. I am hoping that it can be a bit more manageable this year and therefore I am offering my followers a pre-holiday discount of 20% off their entire order. If you see something you like, or perhaps might want to start shopping early for the holidays (like me!) then please do take advantage of it. The offer is only until 31/10 as November 1st officially is kicking off the holiday shopping season. To take advantage of the offer, simply enter coupon code HOLIDAY at the checkout page.
Recently I was invited by DaWanda to participate in their ‘Say it with Clay’ creative competition. As part of the competition, each contestant was tasked with making their own original creation out of polymer clay! So after receiving my clay, I went ahead and made my rather minimalistic piece – a beautiful and large suspended white clay sparrow pendant with matching mini earrings.
I think this piece, though more minimalistic than the other contestants designs, is a wearable piece that would just look fantastic with a scoop neck dress…it really stands out!
Suspended Sparrow – Made of Polymer Clay – with a sheer glazed finish…
Now the entries are up and the voting is on….. If I may ask can you please vote for my design? I would very much appreciate it!
To vote head over to the‘Say it with Clay’ Facebook album – to check out all the entries and reward your favourite with a ‘Like’ . Of course, I do not expect to win, but its just a little fun contest and it would really make my day to see your vote!
And I have a bonus too…Next month I will be raffling off the necklace to one lucky winner. By voting for my design you are automatically entered in the contest to win this beautiful pendant! I think it would look awesome as a statement necklace… If you do place a vote for my necklace, can you also leave a comment below to let me know you voted?
Thanks for taking to time to check out all the clay creations and, of course, your vote. I really do appreciate it!
