Here’s For Flowers!

24.06.2011 § Leave a comment

“The most beautiful things in life are children and flowers” that’s what a rather interesting lady told me Sunday. I was impressed by her clear mind and wonderful view of life. I do not have children, but I love them and am looking forward to becoming a mother one day. Flowers however always surround me and I thought why not dedicate a post to them. In When Jewelry Became Art I wrote about a period in history in which, I believe, nature was most beautifully represented. A very famous jeweler and artist of the same time was René Lalique. See for yourself the delicate Art Nouveau hair comb:

René Lalique’s Orchid Diadem – ca. 1903-1904 – ivory, horn, gold, topaz

It would look wonderful in a giant Carrie Bradshaw bun, slightly on the side maybe.. Don’t you think? To conclude, here’s a Chinese proverb I like: When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.

Classical Jewelry vs. Eccentric Hairstyle is such a perfect combination for an elegant summer party!

Turandot

Jewelry Icon Maria Callas as Turandot

Can you answer Turandot’s riddles? Her first question is: what is born each night and dies each dawn? Then: what flickers red and warm like a flame, yet is not fire? At last: what is like ice but burns?
