Sultan´s Frosted Blue

The bracelet "Sultan´s Frosted Blue"
is a perfect way to accessorize in this season
, because it reminds me of ice and snow.
I knitted blue coated copper wire with aquamarine nuggets.
Before I left to Morocco I shared my gemstone strands
and I wanted to work with aquamarine first.
After working with really eyecatching colours,
I guess I needed to create jewellery in pastel shades.
These earrings match perfectly to the bracelet,
because the Swarovski crystal has nearly the same colour
than the aquamarine gemstone.
The copper elements add a nice contrast to the soft colours
and gives a touch of sophistication.

Back from Morocco II

This is me, covered as a woman from the Sahara.

***
Here you can see Petra and me as a real attraction
on the Jema el Fnaa Place in Marrakesh where we had a really funny dinner.
It was so funny to see that people looked to us in a fascinated way and asked
"Sahraoui?"

Back from Morocco I

Here are some impressions of Morocco, that I want to share.
This was my first trip to Morocco ever and I liked it very much.
I travelled with my best friend Petra and her husband.
We had so much fun...
I loved the typical ornaments on the doors and all the way of decorating.
This is a lovely part of my mini suite at the first organic hotel of Morocco.
The hotel is called Lallamira and is in Essaouira,
where we have been the first night.
Essaouira is a very charming city located at the atlantic coast of Morocco.
The airport of Marrakesh looks phantastic, doesn´t it?

On the way to Morocco

In a few hours I will travel to Morocco...
There I am going to meet Maryam,
spend hours in the souks of Marrakesh,
and I am sure I will find lots of inspiration...
In a few days you can read about my first journey to Morocco...
Wish you all a sunny weekend :-)

More colour, now...

This necklace looks different than my other ones,
because it looks very dynamic.
I used genuine coral teardrop beads,
handmade czech beads
and added sparkle with Swarovski crystals.
The big silver bead is a handmade vintage bead from Turkmenistan.
I have a vey kind vendor in the Grand Bazaar,
who is from Turkmenistan,
and together with his brothers he brings very rare and beautiful beads to Istanbul.
The necklace finally gets the oriental touch by the vintage silver tassel.
