ULTRASONIC CLEANER

- Finally! After 14 years in jewelry creation I have ultrasonic tub for cleaning jewelry. This is first time how I cook jewelry on this way. Since yesterday I was use small electric hot plate, an old metal bowl, strainer tea in hot water with detergent for dished who acted as an ultrasonic cleaner in which I cooked jewelry. Looks comic, as they coming from different centuries :) 

- Konačno! Nakon 14 godina u stvaranju nakita imam ultrazvučnu kadu za čistiti nakit. Ovo je prvi put kako kuham nakit na ovaj način. Do jučer sam koristila mali rešo za kuhanje, staru rajničicu, cjediljku za čaj u vrućoj vodi s deterdžentom za suđe. Ova je kompozicija glumila ultrasonični čistač nakita. Izgleda komično, kao da dolaze iz različitih stoljeća :)

HOW TO MEASURE WIRST

This post is for my customers to explain how to measure correct wrist circumference.  Do NOT ADD extra cm, I will add extra length to make comfortable bracelet.

Ovaj post je za moje kupce da objasnim kako točno izmjeriti opseg zapešća. NEMOJTE dodavati dodatne centimetre. Ja ću dodati potrebnu dužinu da bi narukvica bila udobna za nošenje.

RESIZING RING

This is custom order 
RESIZING RING 
from 11,5 US to 6 US ring size, 
from adjustable to connected

This ring was in the shop in US size 11, customer ask me for resizing on US size 6. After resizing ring have little different look. Smaller he looks sophisticated now. LOS patina makes copper black. I left silver clear to make point on black copper and make accent on edges. On the top I have remove patina to make copper visible. He have very nice shine, surface is beautiful. Sometimes is very difficult to catch shine on metal with camera. Complete impression is  very nice ring, elegant and powerful at the same time. Nice for women hand.

2 bracelets are made of wood and nets that are used in the construction industry for polishing the walls before painting.  On the surface of wood are pins to presents the stars in the far away Universe. Their wearing is completely excluded because of the skin peeling of  hands, which gives them an in-applicability applied art. By name I referring to the fashion of hand-decoration, manicure, which is as black hole by invested money in beauty. That is an endless activity. The artistic creation of jewelry have results in crushed nails of artist, dehydrated hands with frequent cuts and burns as a result of work in  art studio with torch, tools and machines without a "glamour" as epithet. An addition to the theme of the in-applicability of applied art is the "manicure" of the hand painted in wall paint.

2 narukvice su napravljene od drveta i mrežice koja se u građevinarstvu upotrebljava za poliranje zidova prije bojanja. Na površini drveta su igle da simuliraju zvijezde u udaljenom Svemiru. Njihova nosivost je potpuno isključena jer se događa piling kože ruku što im daje karaker neprimjenjive primijenjene umjetnosti. Nazivom se referiram na modu ukrašavanja ruku, manikuru, koja kao crna rupa investiran novac u ljepotu troši u beskraj. Umjetnički stvoren nakit za posljedicu ima slomljene nokte autora, dehidrirane ruke sa čestim posjekotinama i opekotinama kao posljedicom rada u umjetničkom ateljeu sa plamenikom, alatima i strojevima koji nema epitet "glamur" . Dodatak temi neprimjenjivosti primijenjene umjetnosti je "manikura" ruke obojane zidnom bojom.

My left hand is my model for photo shooting jewelry, this time painted in white wall color. Dehydrated because of color looks a little dramatic. Trust me, I am not zombie, I am just ghost :)

Moja lijeva ruka je moj model za fotografiranje nakita, obaj put je obojana u bijelu zidnu boju. Dehidrirana od boje izgleda malo dramatično. Vjerujte mi, nisam zombi, ja sam duh :)
