Copper wire earrings with colored jade bead - Bakarne mindjuse sa perlom od bojenog zada

*** A person I know that is pretty much into shamanism and I think is a sort of Shaman himself ( according to M. Eliade: " There are basically two ways of becoming a shaman: "hereditary transmission or spontaneous vocation" ) inspired me to make a little research on this theme https://www.csulb.edu/~csnider/dickinson.shamanism.html .
Actually, he lost his silver round earring and wanted me to replace it for him. I suggested either to visit a goldsmith or to let me make something else:). So here, I was trying to figure out which style he would like. I thought this is simple, but it appeared he wants something even more simple. Now I want to make a complete line of jewelry that is inspired by this theme.

***  Ponekad upoznas neke neobicne ljude koji te inspirisu za nesto novo - tako sam upoznala osobu koja je prilicno zasla u samanska ucenja, do te mere da je i sam postao neka vrsta samana. Mozda neo-saman:) - prema Mirci Eliajdeu, u osnovi postoje dva nacina na koja se postaje saman, naslednim prenosenjem ili po vokaciji, spontano. Jedan interesantan link sam pronasla ovde https://www.csulb.edu/~csnider/dickinson.shamanism.html
Desilo se, zapravo, da je ta osoba izgubila svoju omiljenu, srebrnu mindjusu, pa me je pitala da li mogu da napravim istu takvu. S obzirom da bi identicnu mogao da napravi samo zlatar, predlozila sam ili to kao resenje ili da ja napravim nesto drugo. Dole su mindjuse koje su moja predpostavka sta bi osoba zelela. Ja sam mislila da su jednostavne, ali se ispostavilo da on zeli nesto jos jednostavnije. Sto cu svakako pokusati, s tim sto sada zelim da napravim kompletnu kolekciju inspirisanu ovakvom tematikom.

Todora Dzoni Stojinovic wedding photos

***Todora Dzoni Stojinovic is our young singer/musician with a powerful, signature voice. Thanks to her courtesy I'm provided with these beautiful photos from her wedding. I'm very happy she decided to wear StarSeed bridal headband - it was brilliantly incorporated in an unconventional and unusual wedding theme, a sort of hippy, boho, dandy...just great:). By the way, she did it herself:). I thought she hired a fashion professional, but nope:)!   Listen to her singing here:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OF9SMhIY-E

*** Todora Dzoni Stojinovic je nasa mlada pevacica/muzicarka, sa veoma mocnim glasom, specificne "boje". Zahvaljujuci njenoj ljubaznosti, u mogucnosti sam da objavim ove prelepe fotografije sa njenog nedavnog vencanja. Veoma sam srecna sto je ona odabrala da, za tu priliku, svoj stajling upotpuni i StarSeed krunicom. Inace, kompletan stajling, poprilicno neobican i nekonvencionalan za jedno vencanje, osmislila je ona sama:). Ja sam mislila da je za tu priliku angazovala modnog strucnjaka, ali ne. Ovaj hipi-boho-dendi stil je kompletno njena zamisao. Pogledajte je, i cujte ovde :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OF9SMhIY-E












Necklace with branches - Ogrlica u obliku grancica

*** This necklace is actually a reorder - someone liked the one from "Gray & Gold" collection and wished to have something similar. Apart from the bead mix that is pretty much the same ( i only added a few ebony beads with Abalone shell ), branches radiate in different directions and the end result is something new; Materials used: moonstone, labradorite, ebony beads with Abalone shell, clear crystal beads, brown transparent beads, gold and brass delica and seed beads, silver wire, etc. 
*** Ova ogrlica je zapravo porudzbina na osnovu vec uradjenog komada iz kolekcije "Gray & Gold" - napravljena za nekog ko je pozeleo da ima nesto slicno. Miks perlica je ostao isti, uz dodavanje nekoliko perli od crne ebonovine, sa intarzijom od Avalon skoljke ). Grancice su upletene na drugaciji nacin, pa je krajnji rezultat ipak nesto novo. Materijal koji je koriscen: labradorit, mesecev kamen, perlice od crne ebonovine sa intarzijom od Avalon skoljke, providne i braon-transparentne kristalne perle, delica i seed perlice u zlatnoj i bronzanoj boji, posrebrena zica, itd.
