It’s that time of year again!

———————————-

Time for the annual Art Fair at beautiful Landgoed Schovenhorst!

———————————-

If you’re in the vicinity, pop in this weekend (2 – 4 august) and enjoy a day in the woods!

———————————-

I’ll be there on Friday with a small selection of silver jewelry and items from my Tin Tin Treasures selection made mostly out of recycled materials.

———————————-

‘Tussen Kunst, Kitsch & Coniferen’ – translates to ‘Between Art, Kitch and Conifers’ which perfectly describes the venue and vibe of the day. Schovenhorst is a beautiful estate where you can walk the lovely walking trails, enjoy something refreshing in the restaurant and visit the art fair, ideal for a day excursion during the summer holidays!

BlueBirdStamp

———————————-

I’ve been pretty busy during the past week making a few extra items for the fair. And also because I just love making these! This first necklace includes a R20 South African postage stamp, a piece of blue mussel shell from the beautiful beach of Blouberstrand just outside Cape Town and a few buttons from my tin of buttons which I’ve been collecting for as long as I can remember.

LaChouffe2

———————————-

I could not resist including another La Chouffe beer bottle cap item. This one has a chain made out of beads and silk wrapped recyled wire as well as tiny oxidized bells, a bird charm and a bright red feather cut out of recycled leather.

———————————-

PinkBirdStamp2

———————————-

The little pink bird which also features in this necklace, is from a South African R2 stamp and is brightened up by a pink fabric flower, turquoise leather and pink real feather, and a other button from my tin.

Backsides

———————————-

———————————-

And as is usually the case, they all hide a little secret on the back side. Come and have a closer look on Friday! The weather looks promising and I am looking forward to a relaxing day admiring the work of other artists. I can only be, as the Dutch say, gezellig (really sociable) !!!

Have a lovely summer! and ’till next time!
