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.

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.

Hello darlings! It's time to continue our Blidinje travel series. This beautiful nature park is one of Europe's best kept secrets. I can't wait to share more of what Blidinje has to offer with you. If you're planning on visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina, this is one nature park that you don't want to miss, especially if you are a mountain lover! Moreover, there is so much to see and do here all year around.
Ciao miei cari lettori! Come state? Oggi sono (di nuovo) la vostra guida turistica per parco naturale Blidinje. Questo bellissimo parco naturale è uno dei segreti meglio custoditi d'Europa. Se avete in programma visitare la Bosnia-Erzegovina, questo è un parco naturale che semplice dobbiate vedere! C'è così tanto da vedere e da fare qui durante tutto l'anno. Se amate le montagne, dobbiate visitare Blidinje. 
Zdravo dragi moji! Danas ću vas odvesti u park prirode Blidinje. Nastavljamo gdje smo stali prošli put moglo bi se reći, a ja jedva čekam da vam po…


In my last post, I explained why nature park Blidinje is more than worthy of a visit. If you ask me, Bosnia and Herzegovina is such an underrated destination, for it hides so many stunning natural oasis and hidden gems. This nature park is one of them. Within the park itself, there is so much to see and do. Today I'll show you (once again) the mountain Church of Saint Elias The Prophet. Moreover, there is another church in this nature park I need to bring to your attention. That would be the church of Virgin Mary of the Snow (located in vicinity of Blidinje lake).

Nel mio ultimo post, ho parlato di Blidinje e vi ho spiegato perché il parco naturale Blidinje merita una visita.Secondo me, la Bosnia ed Erzegovina è una destinazione molto sottovalutata, perché qui potete trovate tante meravigliose oase naturale.Questo parco naturale è uno di questi posti bellissimi.All'interno del parco Blidinje, c'è tanto da vedere e da fare.Oggi vi mostrerò (ancora una volta) la chiesa di m…


Today I'm back with another hiking outfit. Hiking in summer feels like an obvious choice, perhaps because we don't have to worry about the weather as much. The warm temperatures are luring us in the open. One thing I love about hiking is how it allows you to set your own pace. As a chronically ill person, that's very important to me. Living with an immune disease can be really tricky because you might feel fine one day and be unable to get out of the bed the next. Even the doctors themselves do not understand immune illnesses completely and nobody knows for sure what is causing them. All we seem to know is that immune illnesses are turning into an epidemic. Even living with them doesn't make them seem any less mysterious. The unpredictability of these illnesses makes planning regular work outs complicated. Hiking is a form of exercise that you can do even when you're not in top shape. So, I can be an appropriate form of exercise for most of us. What do you think?
