Our Creative Space...


This week we have been busy with prepairing a wholesale order for a shop in Istanbul. The bigger the project the bigger mess we make in our workspace. This week was extraordinairy and I'm not showing you everything here :)


Among the order we also had some projects going on, like always, creativity is always bursting at our place.


The shop owner asked us if we could send some sea themed decorative stuff, like starfishes, along with the order to display the jewelry. That made me thinking and I looked through our big driftwood pieces to see if I could make some real displays.


With some matching and glueing I made this tree to hang earrings and necklaces on, I love it!

We also had some big starfishes which will be nice too. And I drilled out a big piece of driftwood to hold rings. I love the result as it is playful and natural, perfect to make our pieces stronger.



And an other interesting shaped driftwood to hang necklaces, I didn't change anything of it's natural shape except I carved spaces so that the necklaces won't slide off.


The shop owner will send us pictures of the result in the shop, hope to share that with you too, among with the address in case you might visit Istanbul :)
