Dear Larissa, Many thanks indeed for your great organization and your visit of Chicago over the last days. It has been a pleasure to meet you. You will remain for all of us the smile of Chicago. Best to you and all the best. – Thomas (Paris)
I am excited to share with you a couple of porcelain necklaces inspired by the imagery of the Pech Merle prehistoric caves in France. The handprint stencil appears numerous times in the caves in black and red tones. I have included one image here of hands. You can read more about the caves at their site and see images of the famous spotted horses: http://www.pechmerle.com/english/index.php
I was reading an Italian book last night while firing some ornaments in the kiln. In the story they used the word ‘turchino’ which I was not familiar with, which led to learning about two words for two colors that came from Turkish into the Italian language: turchese and turchino. Turchese is the color and the stone Turquoise, while turchino means a dark blue. When I opened the kiln in the morning, I had octopus to illustrate the difference:
Come and see! I will showcase some highlighted necklaces for this season. https://www.facebook.com/events/1405278893052096/ Tweaked Style and Midwestern Bride are teaming up spread the word on trends of the new year and share in your excitement.

De retour de ce beau voyage, la tête encore un peu embrumée mais pleine d’images. Notre groupe a été unanime sur la qualité de l’organisation avec une mention particulière à Larissa qui a vraiment été une excellente guide, très présente, à l’écoute, efficace et compétente. J’espère que nous aurons l’occasion de collaborer à nouveau à l’occasion d’un prochain voyage.
