Time flies!

Time flies!  I've noticed that more often than not, some bloggers start their post by "omg, it's been... days since my last post".  I'm starting to follow the trend.  Are we all feeling guilty?  I am!  Not going to make any promises for the future though, I know that's scary and dangerous.  Ha ha!!

So I haven't made a lot of things lately, because I've been otherwise busy taking an exam to become a teacher and.. passing it with flying colours.  I'm so proud of myself, I could yell.  Wait, that's exactly what I did when I got the results.  I got 11.5 for the written part, 10.1 for the oral interview thingy.  Not too shabby. Especially considering that I had barely done any prep work... 'cause of course, when I was told that I was "admissible", meaning I'd gotten a good enough grade on the written part that they wanted to see if I was for real and interview me (lol), I was already snowed under with translation work, and only had a fortnight to prepare.  So yeah, enough showing off, I'm just happy I passed.  I think I was quite lucky.  So I may or may not become a teacher come September.. depending on WHERE they want me to teach.  The French system is quite weird. More on that later.  

I made those for a show that turned out to be a disaster, sales-wise.

Those I made yesterday, just because.

This one too.  I love bangle stacks.  No kidding!

This one is very summery.  Vibrant colours.  Lightweight.  Go buy it.

I also finished this bracelet that I'd been working on for ages...  it was just missing the clasp.

Awwww look at that chubby hand!!!  (the bracelet is too small for me, too big for my lil girl, but you can't tell on the pic :))

And last but not least, I've been working on my wedding necklace.  So work in progress.

  1. lovely new things! also congrats on your test! what will you be teaching?
    i think my favorite stacks are the white ones

    1. Thanks Jiorji :))))) Yes I'll be teaching English in secondary schools (is that how they're called? for kids from 11 to 18 years of age)
      Teaching is a good job in France, lots of benefits. Also, way more time for me to make jewelry on the side.
      I hope they give me a position not too far away so I can accept it. !!
      Oh, and cabbage rolls? What are those? Recipe!!!

    2. oh gosh the teen years! good luck i'm sure you'll be marvelous! i wanted to teach arts and crafts at a camp for kids this summer but it didn't really work out. that would've been fun. i'll post a recipe for cabbage rolls soon :D

  2. she's teaching english of course- look at dem skills! see how english speakers dont even notice that you're a french girl writing in perfect english. oh wait, i think jorji is french too.... lol!
    omg look at all your fabulous stuff!!! i can see you making good use of that mass of treasure i sent already and it makes me so happy. there was really too much for me and now that it can be put to good use and appreciated it makes me super thrilled. actually, i've been checking out all your stuff here i missed while i was gone- so yummy!!! the rings! the things made with the cosmic rocks technique! (swells with pride b.c i'm totes taking credit for that!)

    1. no silly, i'm not french. i'm Romanian! MUCH MUCH cooler!(no that's a lie. nothing cool about romanians..but we do make awesome cabbage rolls hahah)

    2. Of course you should take credit - I've been using that technique a lot! These days I mix gold patina paste with gold leaves, I find it easier to work with. I realized that it worked really well on wood, too. woohoo!!!!
      You'll get pics of the finished necklace, promise. I have two weeks to finish it. Eeepppp.
