This image has really got me thinking. I love wood, it's so tactile and I sometimes find lovely pieces of driftwood on the beach. I've got a piece hanging over my bed that is like a 'pas de deux', a thick creeper of some sort that just looks like two dancers wrapped around each other. I'd much prefer to have my jewellery in a box like this than in a mass-produced synthetic soul-less piece.
That sounds like an interesting piece of home decoration! I love the the description of it! As for the boxes... I always had a soft spot for unique boxes. When I realized, that I was leaving Russia, the first thing I did... I went to a jewellery store and bought traditional jewellery boxes :) Maybe I will do a blog post with pictures and show them off. They are not expensive, just something you cannot get anywhere else.
Oh, DO blog about them. I'd love to see some pictures, they sound really interesting.
With all my pleasure :) It will be a research for me, as I would not be able to explain how they were made in English yet...
Well all I can say is that your English is a hell of a lot better than my Russian! It's after midnight now so goodnight & sweet dreams! Do you still dream in Russian? My Mum is a native Welsh speaker and even though she's been speaking English for 70 years whenever she's upset or worried she always dreams in Welsh!
No, no dreams in Russian :) It all depends... I studied jewellery making here. Then I was even teaching jewellery making, here also. I would not be able to teach in Russian! Another sample... I can crochet and knit well. I've learned that in Russia. I would not be able to teach anybody in English how to knit :)
I'm still here! Isn't it funny how our brains work? Right, now I am DEFINITELY heading for the duvet!
It is just the matter of knowledge. If I know the names for the techniques and tools, I can teach how to use them. If I do not know the names for these tools in another language, I will be saying something like this: "Hm... just watch what I'm doing" :)
