A step before spring

Good and gray morning…

To put a bit of light to this greyish day I’ll show you the palette suggested by Pantone for next Spring-Summer season..

You can download the .pdf file on their site http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20694&ca=4

Here a resume of the colors…

1. Amparo Blue ( a bit brighter than navy blue)

2. Turquoise (very summer and lovely for the beach)

3. Violet (in a pale version, super chic)

4. Aurora ( a yellow slightly green)

5.Fusion Coral (i think this is goign to be my favorite)

6. Tomato Purée (they suggest to combine it with turquoise to get a retro look and I agree and love the combination!)

7.Pink Champagne (i’ve been using it in my collections and it’s very well accepted)

8. Tuscany ( combined with violet…super cool)

9. Dried herb (one of the neutrals I’ve been also using so far)

10. Eucalyptus (a gray with a touch of green, the other neutral to be worn when we have got enough sun to be proud of our tanned skin:))

So, what do you think about it? Comment and tell me which one do you prefer!!

************************************************************************************************

And just to get a fresh air on this winter… I have made this clutch bag in wild silk (very rusty indeed) mixed with acrylic in the same palette and with little touches of primary colors (that came in the yarn) and until this moment I didn’t have any idea of where to put it…but I think in this bag is perfect and looks great!

Mariona—- the succesful XL knitted bag

The story starts one day when Mariona a very nice spanish girl writes me telling she’s in love with my ‘sac décontracté’ but she wanted a bigger one…and the most surprising is she discovered my through Artesanum a site I discovered when I began to see internet as a possibility because almost all the sites were in english and this platform is in spanish (my mother tongue), so I felt I has to be in.

This month, as well, they have given me the opportunity to be on front-page and is being very good so far.

So, the client just told me she wanted the bag in prune and big… the rest was all my decision. Very challenging and fun!

And seeing its evolution and the results I decided to start with a new era on my shops… bringing lists MADE TO ORDER and completely customizable…

Apparently this idea has pleased a lot of people, because Etsy choose this bag for one of its Etsy Finds, a mailing that reach a vast number of people and permits them to discover “new” creations and artists… for sure a good option to be and expand the universe of fans and clients…  So, you can read the article on The Storque (Etsy’s blog) and choose your Mariona bag on my shop.

I feel happy from the start to the end!

Have a great Xmas and see you soon!

Should I say month’s news?

Oh my! I can’t believe this month has passed so fast! There are only 33 days to Xmas!

November has been a bit silly… my parcel of yarns never arrived from England, they went back and we have some misunderstandings with the supplier so… uffff I had to look for new ones, organize myself to continue producing with almost nothing and here we are, I have found a new provider who has amazing fibers and you’ll see the results in next posts. Finally I’m glad … once again like yin and yang every negative contains a positive part.

Now the two new finished products are my lovely “Margarita” clutch bag knitted in a vibrant yellow-corn-mustard. I imagined it as a complement for a grey garment (to be the center of attention) or a light blue one (for a very retro look).

As I’m making a new vest (as the one I’ve made in white-cream some months ago) this time in a colorful palette… I was inspired to make this necklace I called “Spiral joy” and is obvious when you look at it, and you perceive the joy and good energy spreading all around…

Finally I’m having a SALE on my Etsy shop, my A little market shop and I’m going to participate on Dawanda Advent Calendar from 24th November to 17th December offering a 12% discount in all my products… so, good shopping!

Pochette in red

And finally I finished the third pochette… as I told here it was a red buckle left…

As we are almost entering in Fall season I made it with warmer fibers as wool and a piece of brown leather which gives it a lot of character…

Now that I can look at the trhee of them I love the fact that they have the same shape but completely different styles… and as all hanmade things a unique not perfect one……..

Pochette III

Inspired by the colors of the buckles I have this is the result of the second pochette…there is one red left… I’ll see what materials I have to combine… I’m really enjoying doing these bags…..! It was very challenging at first, but now I can play a lot with rests of threads and it is great to see how simple can be recycling materials and achieving a piece to wear like this one…

The new pochette

This week I have lots of new things to show you (I had a very productive weekend) but I still have to do lots of photos…

This is another clutch bag, but is not a simple one… I did some changes on the design and I went into a natural finishing (metal finding are not my favorite ones, but I have to recognized that people love them)… so for this one I put a leather strap I ended with a vintage buckle I have bought in Buenos Aires before coming to Europe (happily I have two more left!!) and I also added leather to the sides which make me feel more comfrotable with the “interiors” …

I love it! I simply fell in love with it when I saw it finished… enjoy the most charming one of my series of clutch bags..

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
