Bazar de Navidad de la Asociación Emergencia Ayacucho.

Last weekend I went to this  Christmas bazar to see my friend Fabienne Bisselbach, a jewelry designer. I love her work. I have a couple of things from her, a pair of earrings and a ring. She's French but Peruvian at heart. I like being around her because I can practice my french and sometimes we speak "fragnol".

Here are some pictures of her stand at the bazar.

Her beautiful jewelry, all silver of course! I like her style because it's very feminine.

With my dear friend, ma chère amie, Faby.

And, I had the luck to meet another talented jeweller, Joanne Mc Kay. Her work is simple but different, I don't know if to call it "organic", anyways, I like it. Her jewelry reflects her simplicity. She's a very nice person and I like that.

Here there are some pics:

Joanne at her stand.

Ohhh the goodies!!!

With Joanne.

I had a great time at the bazar, exploring stands, discovering products, buying Christmas gifts, but most of all, having a good time with my friends!

Election day.

Today is an election day. Why exactly, I do not know. It's a waste of time and money. Hopefully I went early in the morning and voted quickly, there was no queue.

In the middle of the night I woke up with a sore throat and a migraine or the beginning of a cold. I thought of telling my dad that I was not going to come with him to vote. All I wanted was to sleep. Finally I went with him. I had to ask him whom to vote for because there are so many political groups, too many for my taste.

Here in Peru, voting is mandatory, if you don't vote you must pay a fee.

I hate that!

You should vote because you are sure about your candidate or political group, but no, we have to vote for the lesser of two evils.

I don't like talking about politics because you never reach a conclusion. I don't belong to any political party.

That's all about me and politics. 

I voted for duty and avoiding a fee.

Día de los Muertos o día de todos los Santos?

Halloween! I group of kids yelled at the door. It was the forst time after years I heard kids asking for candy, I think they were with their parents. Sadly, I had no candies. The neighbourhood is very quiet, normally.

I put on my favorite desguise, my pima cotton pj's. I say pima because it's the best cotton you can find, it's so smooth! I really recommend it.

I was creative the other day and started to make some earrings, bracelet, a pendant and a necklace. Too bad the light was not good enough.
For the first time in my life I worked with mystic quartz, druzy pink quarts and faceted aquamarines. I'll show you the pics, please be nice because light was not helping!

The necklace:

I chosed an apatite  and fuchsia quartz to add colour.

The Hoops:

The hoops are in goldfilled with carved amethysts, pink quartz and a tiny goldfilled leaf.

The bracelet:

Sterling silver chain, gold quartz nugget, fuchsia quartz. 

Aquamarine earrings:

Silver beads, silver wire, mystic quartz, faceted aquamarine bead, with silicone posts

Pendant; goldfilled wire, citrine and peridot with a carved amethyst.

I hope to post them soon on etsy or you can contact me via facebook:
