SeaGlass in a Bag Earrings

My latest creation are those little bags earrings with genuine Amalfi sea glass inside. 
A little bag with a little piece of Italy!
For quite a long time I wanted to make earrings combining sea glass and beading, however working with sea glass is not like working with beads or commerical cabochon as there are no  two piece that are the same and I was looking for a solution that would rsult in an almost equal two pieces suitable for earrings. With this little cute sweet "bags" I have found a solution that satisfies me, they are cute, sweet, ironic and fun... and I am REALLY satisfied.

Cappuccino - Natural Sea Stone Pendant

Finally I have picked up my beads stack and from picked this natural sea stone from the huge box of "natural cabochon". My eyes got caught by this stone, with beautiful earth tones and gorgeous brown veins that reminds me of a nice warm cappuccino. I have casted the sea stone with coffee/chocolate brown tone beads and each side is different. More in my ETSY shop.

my new boots for my winter beach days

I bought a pair of new boots for my winter beach stroll on  the beach. So today I took the train and went to Ostia beach to try them. They are perfect.
And the day was beautiful with no win, the water was warm and some tourist went barefoot.
 A great day for collecting pebbles.
 a day with a postcard sunset.

oh my OWLs

I must be crazy... I spent and entire day to make those owls... at a certain point I was feeling like Penelope as I was doing and redoing each little part until I was satisfied... my mother is staying gin Rome with me and she was laughing so much as at a certain point those owls was looking everything but like owl.
But after many coffees, some home made pasta she made for me (good-by diet !) here are some of the owls we designed and finished today.
