a statement necklace (DIY)/ ogrlica kao modna izjava (moji radovi)

When you're designing a necklace yourself, in some sense every necklace is a statement necklace. You're making a statement if it's your creation, right? Anyway, when it comes to necklaces, I go for the unusual.  If I 'm creating sometimes for my friends, I try to tone it down a little but when I'm doing it for myself I channel my inner craziness;)

Kad sami pravite ogrlicu za sebe, na neki način svaka je ogrlica nekakva modna izjava, samim time što je vaša osobna kreacija, zar ne? Kako god, kad se radi o ogrlicama, privlače me one neobične. Kad radim nešto za prijatelje (dobro većinom za prijateljice), onda napravim jednostavnije stvari,, ali kada radim nešto za sebe, onda pustim mašti na volju....

Kao što vidite ima tu pomalo svega, perlica, žice, a ovo na samom kraju je kamen obložen fimom. 

Ova je ogrlica gore vrlo ekološka, napravljena je od žireva. Da, od žireva! Samo sam ih prebojala zlatnim lakom, iscrtala i probušila. Ispod je žica, a mislim da se to i vidi na slici. Uglavnom, davno sam ovo napravila. 

Ova zelena ogrlica jako mi je draga, zato što je asimetrična i baš neobična. Zimi se može nositi i preko pulovera. Inače volim nositi ogrlice preko ovratnika (koleta) i pulovera, to mi se uvijek sviđalo. Kako je danas baš hladno, baš mi se ova zadnja kombinacija čini baš najprikladnijom. Što se vama čini?

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…



As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 

Once again, here is a li…
