Illustration, jewelry, inspiration

I found this frame in a houseware store (yeah I live in IKEA country but we have other houseware stores and shops here too) here in Stockholm, I thought it would look great with my Silly Girl Faces print and it really does. I should have more frames for my illustrations.

Here are my latest crochet ball earrings in black silk thread.

And my latest crochet ball of yarn necklace is back! Not exactly as before, just fewer and bigger crochet balls. 

I took a 7 month break from making these round yarn balls - they're very hard and clever to make and my fingers hurt each time I make these, but it is oh so worth it! don't you think? This necklace and earrings are in my jewelry and accessories shop now!

These jewelry pieces just made me think of the video for "Heartbeats" performed by fellow swede José Gonzalés. I was so in love with this song when it came out a couple of years ago and I still think it's really beautiful.
