What ever happened to the romantic landscapes?

I was too busy listening to secret projects about snow as a form of dangerous weathers fallen to earth.

This was a song about loneliness.

But the flames of dreamers never cease to disrupt the secret dark, like abstract art and winter scenes voicing a sudden firework.

This is not a song about loneliness.

It’s merely a declaration of an old bruise.

Gold has fueled my noir obscurities.

Inordinate yet dizzyingly beautiful. Life can only be understood backwards.

I’m inspired by the unexpected. I like to pick the messy, wonderful brains of the creative minds and delve into the complex train of thoughts without looking for something specific. I might find something unique; it kind of feels like antique hunting, I get the same adrenaline when I come across a really unique piece of milk glass to add to my collection. I reckon it’s pure coincidence.

You know what’s gold to me?

The ones who explore their true identities without the fear of being different. Without seeking to be different either. No glorifications.

It is, what it is. 

The ones who realise that they have nothing to prove to anyone.

Stepping out of the structures not because it’s cool but because conforming is not even an option. It’s not in your bones.

Those who quieten when others talk.

All that no-one sees, they see.

A thank you note to the artists who inspired me to rumble.

    Ooh thanks for the code! I
    Can you please make a post on how to create a minimalistic capsule jewelry collection? I have so much junk that I never wear.

    • says:

      Sure. Basically you just start by giving away things you don’t wear, you only keep the ones that you actually use and you make mindful purchases. For every new thing you buy, you give one away from your existing collection. One in – one out. Figure out what looks good on you. Snake chains, pearls and band rings look good on most people. Take your lifestyle into consideration. For example, I love to wear guitar picks on my neck, these have sentimental value to me, as most of my friends are musicians and wearing those picks is a way of having them with me always. Another tip is to keep your jewellery on display, it helps you see what you have and wear them every day. No, you are right, I should do a post about that 😛

  7. What beautiful pieces. I love finding jewelry that really compliments my style.

  8. The jewelry is great but your words are just beautiful! I think my favorite is “Life can only be understood backwards.” It’s so true that we don’t understand things in the moment, but learn so much more when we have time to look back on it all.

  9. Creative and beautiful interpretations. Gold has always been gold.
