sketches (necklaces) / skice (ogrlice)

I've been working on making and designing necklaces...As you know (if you have been following regularly), I have been experimenting over sized necklaces made from faux leather. I've been trying to work out  how I want to make them and all that. Here are a few sketches and ideas and hopefully soon you'll be able to see a final product.  Perhaps making my designs really bubble and positive, sort of cartoonish 'sugar, spice and everything nice' type of stuff  is the result of  currently having a hard time in life and consequently trying to cheer myself up subconsciously.

Radila sam na pravljenu i osmišljavanju ogrlica. Kao što znate ako redovito pratite, malo sam eksperimentirala sa  velikim ogrlicama od eko kože. Pokušavala sam smisliti kako ih želim praviti i tako to. Evo par skica i ideja i nadam se da ću uskoro moći pokazati vam neke radove. Možda su mi u glavi vesele stvari u stilu crtića jer mi u zadnje vrijeme u životu ne cvjetaju ruže. Možda je to podsvijesni način da sama sebe oraspoložim.

  1. I´m so glad you enjoy this dear, looks like you have fun besides you´re pretty good at it...

  2. Your a total professional Ivana! I'll look forward to the faux Leather accessories, xoxo.

  3. Lovely designs, Ivana! I love the pink one with hearts and the last drawing with a portrait of a girl with purple hair is beautiful. I know so well how you feel... It's the same for me, the worst I feel the happiest are my drawings. But it's good that we can create to brighten our days! Hugs and smiles!

    1. yes, it is true:) there is a lot of comfort to be found in creativity!

  4. What fun designs! Bold jewelry and leather sound like a great combo :)


  5. cool drawings !!! :)

  6. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)

  7. Draga Ivana, nadam se da nije nista preozbiljno i preruzno te da ce uskoro ruze cvjetati posvuda u tvom zivotu a ne samo na ogrlicama... od srca :) Slicice su lijepe i vesele te se veselim buducim realizacijama istih :*

    1. hvala ti nije ništa preozbiljno, samo sam premorena, nekad se previše toga skupi...

  8. I ja se nadam da će sve biti ok, sve ima rešenje i sve prođe i znam da je lako reći a u praksi je drugačije, ali ipak, nadam se da mogu makar malo da dorpinesem toj pozitivnosti kojom odišu ovi crteži. Stvarno si prava umetnica :)

  9. Ciao Ivana, non vedo l'ora di vedere I tuoi gioielli! Mi dispiace che tu sia giù di morale tesoro :-( ti abbraccio forte e ti penso

  13. I'm glad that your creative verve lifts you through hard time, though I'm sorry to hear that things are tough right now.
    I particularly like the boldness of the triangular shaped one.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
