My great-grandmother's furniture


I saved this old piece of furniture from the darkness of my mother's cellar and gave it a honoured place in my new day-room.I love its shabby look and I only cleaned it with a furniture milk based on beeswax.

Malachite bracelet

So this is malachite bracelet I made today from malachite pieces from my first todays post.I used as a base one boughted leather bracelet from one little store that keeps accessories for bikers and rockers in Varaždin.

My grandmother's powder box

This is my grandmother's old powderbox.It is funny to see ladies in old muvies sitting in the front of mirrors winded round with cloudes of powder.This is a box from that period.Of course,I don't keep the powder inside-I use it as a box for various little pieces of semiprecious stones I use in jewelery making,in this case malachite.I will make one malachite bracelet.
