Please consider buying my art for Christmas
Please consider doing some early Christmas shopping in my Etsy shop where each item is absolutely unique, rather than buying mass produced stuff. Shipping times may be a bit unpredictable in December too. Some new items: buy here buy here buy here buy here buy here buy here
New Jewellery and Exhibition
My shop is open again and there are some new items in it. I can't make as much jewellery as I used to, my elbow is still hurting after all the physical therapy and inactivity. I'd have to stop using it at all, I guess, but that's not an option. I'll try to make at least two items weekly, but I guess I can say goodbye to being a full time jeweller :( There's an exhibition of my drawings and collages in the Malahide Library (Ireland) until September 23rd, so all of you who are in Ireland are welcome to see it, the admission is free. I've gotten myself into the medieval reenactment movement and been trying my skills in textile crafts, like wea
Tennis elbow
I've developed a lateral epicondylitis and can't make jewellery anymore, at least until it gets better (which can take months). I'm about to undergo a series of painful steroid shots right to the elbow and physiotherapy. Fantastic. I'm also not allowed to swim, and my artistic and professional activity needs to be reduced to minimum, because I use this arm for everything, not just crafts: painting, guitar, illustration, cooking and housework. I'm feeling so useless now.  
More Affordable Jewellery
  More Affordable Jewellery I would love my jewellery to be more affordable. Sadly, after taking off all the fees, taxes, supplies and other costs pure income is maybe half of what customers are paying. But I still think more people should be able to afford something nice every now and then, so I decided to make some simpler pendants, that don’t involve so much supplies and require less time to complete. So here’s a batch of pendants. They’re all €35 plus shipping. Enjoy! Available here.

My beloved cat died recently. Absence of the cat generates a cat-shaped negative space in the house. I didn't get to say goodbye.
