Through the Looking Glass

For some time now I've been in love with dome glass jewelry and tiny bottles filled with brocade and other adorable and cute things, they look so magical, like from a fairy tale or from Alice stories.


I think the allure of the glass lies in the fact that it's fragile and also that it distorts the world when you look through it. Creating something unusual and mysterious.
Tiny bottles are even more amazing, especially when you fill them with something like liquid, tiny paper or some magic dust.



I was inspired by many photos I've seen, mainly on deviantart and jewelry on etsy to make wy own versions of glass jewelry. I used glass domes and tiny bottles to make the magic happen as well as brocade and micro balls in all the colors of rainbow.

First thing that I made were earrings, I call them 'love potions'.

After some time I wanted to make something new, and that's how I started to make dome glass miniature terrarium jewelry. My first ring was inspired by works of other sellers on etsy with the most common themes: woodland, pine cone and toadstools.

However, I still wanted to do something different, and that's when I realize that those glass domes remind me of snow globes I used to have in childhood. And so I decided to try to make snow globe rings, filled with water, brocade and something more... an Eiffel Tower and Big Ben. The snow globes usually can be bought as a souvenir with a city's best known architecture feature.

If you also happen to make glass jewelry or any other kind of art, please share it, I would love to see it!

Have a nice day,

SO, I have my laptop back, it looks like brand new, but there's little tiny problem... they couldn't take the jack out. I guess I just have 'luck'. So this means I'm soundless until I figure something out or buy a new computer, which is sad as I can't live without music but I don't have money to buy a new computer, need to live it through somehow though.


Have a nice day!

breaking things

I have the biggest 'luck' or maybe it's rather an ability to make impossible things happen like this time I broke a jack from my speakers and a part of it reamined inside of my laptop. I don't know how I do this things but they happen to me quite often. The guys at apple center gave me a weird look when I showed them what happened. They have to open my laptop to take it out. However, there is always a good side to such stories when they happen to me, they will replace my laptop frame for free (it is all cracked as my mac has 4 years). So my computer will be brand new when I'll get it back, which will be on Tuesday... which is a long time and I will miss it with my whole heart (I love my laptop <3). I also have to replace my old batterry as it swelled (not sure if the word for this is correct).

I also broke a lamp the same day I stuck the jakc in the laptop. It was a day full of 'breaking' things. The funny fact is that the lamp is still working, just the lamp is not attached to the frame anymore and is hanging on a wire only. So I need to buy a new one I guess.

Lots of expenses this week, but what can you do?

Also I was supposed to move out from my parents and rent an apartment with friends but the owner of the apartment said that we no longer can live there so we need to find a new one.

So I hope that the universe is fair and something good is about to happen soon :)
