Thought process

Just found something that I made a while back. 

Mockup on the left, Arbesque 2 earring on the right in silver. 

Sometimes when I have an idea I sketch them. And sometimes I make a little mockup of it. This is when I had the idea for the arabesque 2 collection. 
I wanted to make the pieces very light and simple but with a little bit of the curlyness. 
After I made the mockup, I think I concluded that it will be too light if I made it out of wire and decided to make the collection with wax and cast them instead. 

Sometimes the stage where I'm testing out the designs are where I have the most fun~

Ginkgo trees

It seems like some ginkgo trees turn yellow sooner than others. In Tokyo a lot of the trees turn color and feels very fall like in November.   
The other day, I remembered that there is a high school where the back entrance is lined with the ginkgo trees. I was lucky to see it just before the sun set. 

Love the yellow~!

New hug ring

Our newest friend in the Hug Collection!

I am still deciding which way to wear the owl. Flying towards me or flying away from me.

Creature on my wrist

I got a watch as a gift the other day. It is a self winding watch and makes that ticking noise that let's you know it's working. 

I've been thinking of wearing a watch but my phone was enough these days. 

It's been a week to try this new lifestyle with a watch. 

I sometimes would take off the watch when I work on my jewelry, but it is best to try to wear it all day so there's movement for it. 
It was the first time I realized that these watches are sort of alive or living. It needs a bit of attention but it is constantly working away. It's almost like a creature living on your arm. 

Let's make tomorrow another great day~ !
