It may be gloomy outside, but at least it’s warm! Apparently this week is supposed to set the example for the upcoming year. Maï told me this, wishing me a Happy New Year of the rooster. Since I think it’s a good sign and since I haven’t told you about it yet this week, I wanted to share this with you. I think it’s neat and I’ll try to avoid procrastinating this week so that it doesn’t rub off on the rest of the year!
I’m back with a really easy, cool DIY today: granite earrings! My lovely friend, Alexandra Bruel started her wallpaper company, Paper Mint, a few months ago and one of the bestsellers is the Granite pattern! We wanted to use bright colors of course, but this was inspired by my wonderful friend!
I think this project is like going back in time. When I was a teenager, I made a whole tribe of little women out of Fimo clay. This DIY is a more artsy way to work with Fimo clay.
A bit of advice: I suggest baking your work on sulphurised paper, for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 110°C (this is based on experience).
We’ve got lots of different things going on at the studio. We’re working on our next collection that’ll be released February 14th and we’re also working on our customer service: new boxes for the collection afterwards. Anyways, we’re planning ahead which is great, lots of changes to come! I was wondering what you think of DIY’s as videos; we really want to make more, what do you think?
Hugs and kisses!
