I have this little chrysanthemum in my garden, I look at it every day in the last couple of weeks wondering how is it possible to have such lovely flowers in this freezing cold. Yesterday it finally hit me: hey, this is inspiration! So, here it is my own interpretation of the chrysanthemum. I'm very happy about the way it turned out, because I'm very "cautious" with using purple and yellow together (I don't know why, must be some kind of a "childhood drama" with colorful candies or crayons :)), and now I finally realized that with choosing the right shade there is really nothing to be afraid of :)

My name is Zsuzsanna, but just call me Zsuzsa, I am a self-taught jewelry designer, a full time homemaker, a mother of three beautiful children, a wife of an amazing man. Born and raised in Hungary, now living in The Netherlands. We live in a small town on the countryside, I'm sure, you will learn more about it as I will keep on blogging. It's not much happening here, but the place have something magical going on, like natural spa, you can get all the rest you need! Rest is in the air! OK, sometimes it can be to much of it, too :)
I make handcrafted, artisan jewelry and beads. Couple of years ago I found out about the polymer clay, and I am an addict ever since! It's a great medium, with almost unlimited possibilities, makes you creative and alert too.
I just begin to re-discover fiber: I make handfelted brooches and I started to re-learn knitting and crocheting. Re-learn, because when I was a little girl I used to knit and crochet with the help of my Grandmother, but then I just left it behind... time to pick up!
So, I guess, now the blog is official open :)
