Fluffy Clouds, Umbrellas, Owls and Rosey Charm Bracelets

2/23/2015




Jewelry  has gone through many different phases along with me. From decadent and over the top design to the complete absence of any. I've come to a stage where I mostly wear my wedding ring and my watch and those two are obligatory as I feel like they're part of me in a strange way. Anything else is mostly redundant in my mind. I do have a few bracelets I cherish and I actually only wore the pair during this winter with my fluffy cardigans. I've told you this because I've recently been so charmed, so touched as a sensitive human being that I am and my relationship with jewelry has not only been rekindled - I finally understand how and why a particular piece could mean so very much to a person. By complete chance has a brooch come into my possession as a gift. A brooch in the form of a little black cat has been residing inside my bag for a while now and has garnered me many compliments whenever I decided to show it off. I shall show that brooch on my Instagram account soon. As fate wanted it, the lady whose gentle and hard-working hands created my black kitty brooch was introduced to my blog, we got in touch and she was kind to send me some of her other pieces of handmade jewelry. I have only mentioned to her what I do for a living but paid no special attention to that area of my life to be absolutely blown away when Little Miss Bow (original name "Gđica Mašnica") jewelry arrived at my doorstep. These must be one of the most personalized gifts I've ever received and I think you'll understand my excitement!

Nakit je sa mnom prosao jedan trnovit put od dekadentnog (pomalo kicastog) stila pa do potpunog odsutstva istog. Dosla sam do faze kada vecinu dana nosim vjencani prsten i sat jer ih cak ni ne dozivljavam kao komade nakita ili asesoare posto su na neobican nacin srasli sa mnom. Sve osim njih mi djeluje dosta nepotrebno i suvisno. Doduse, posjedujem par narukvica koje su mi jako prirasle srcu i samo sam njih nosila ove zime u kombinaciji sa mekanim dzemperima. Sve vam ovo pisem iz razloga sto me nedavno dojmio komad nakita do mjere da sam se sva raznjezila (posto sam isuvise emotivna osoba). Ne samo da sam ponovo uspostavila lijep odnos spram nakita vec napokon pocinjem da shvatam kako i zasto bi nekome naizgled obican komad znacio mnogo. Prica pocinje da sam potpunom slucajnoscu dosla u posjed jednog brosa u obliku crne mica-mace. Taj je bros bio poklon koji je od prvog dana postao redovan pratitelj u mojoj dnevnoj torbi. Bros je doduse skriven u torbi ali kada god bih ga pokazala nekome, dobio bi obilje komplimenata. Uskoro cu objaviti njegovu fotkicu na Instagramu, ako vas zanima kako izgleda. Kako je sudbina zeljela, dama cije su vrijedne ruke kreirale taj lijepi bros je primjetila moj blog, stupile smo u kontakt i bila je darezljiva spram mene tako sto mi je poslala paketic pun divnih poklona. Samo sam joj spomenula cime se bavim i u kojoj sam struci no ona me opet uspjela 'oboriti sa nogu'. Kada sam vidjela sadrzaj paketica koji mi je Gđica Mašnica poslala, pomislila sam kako se radi o necemu sto mi je jako blisko i cijenim sto je sve personalizirano tako da mi odgovara i istinski mi se dopada. Mislim da cete razumjeti moje odusevljenje u nastavku!



Attention to detail is magnificent and even the packaging in which jewelry was sent is beautiful (and extremely thoughtful but I also can see the play with words - bow & miss bow, I get it!). Can you only imagine how happy, surprised and excited I was when I spotted that incredibly cute rain cloud brooch? I can clearly remember I jumped up and down and I have actually squealed out of sheer joy. I think hubby will forgive my little happy dance spectacle as I was tired as I have just arrived from work so my reactions were truly raw and uncontrolled. I adore this brooch! I have no idea how Amira could even imagine what my weakness is but I always fall for such images and even have a sweater with the exact same cloud visual on its back. I cannot wait to show it to my colleagues at work. The fluffy segments, the subtle sparkle and the colorful rain drops - I'm in love, in love! This is something I will wear all the time, I promise! A very similar reaction happened when I spotted my red umbrella brooch with white polka dots - it even sports a mini heart and bow - cuteness overload ladies, that's what this is. I think it's so pretty and so special and I can already imagine it on my trench coat as spring showers start - perfect pairing with a pair of rain boots, don't you think? Of course most of us will melt at the sight of the amazingly detailed owl brooch. I love how everything from Little Miss Bow is so light and when you pin your brooch to a tee or sweater, it doesn't weigh it down or leave it stretched. And the charm bracelet? Oh my, oh my! The cherry red hue is my favorite shade of red and I truly enjoyed discovering every little charm this bracelet contains. The little hearts, anchors, sun, tiny sandal, stars and roses...Again, it looks so 'rich' yet it's very light and unobtrusive to wear and it literally goes with everything. After all the umming and arrrhing, I think you realize how honestly in love with Miss Bow things I really am. These brooches cost approx $3 - $3,5 depending on how detailed they are, bracelets cost $3,5, necklaces approx $5 and two piece sets (necklace/earrings or necklace/ring) cost approx $6. I think that's a bargain! If you feel intrigued after this post, do contact sweet Amira at her Little Miss Bow (original name "Gđica Mašnica") Facebook page. She's a very lovely person and I think she'd be glad to know that this post has inspired you to purchase some of her unique handmade stuff.

Paznja detaljima je nevjerovatna te je cak i pakovanje jako lijepo te veoma pazljiv detalj - takodjer sam primjetila i aluziju na naziv 'masnica'. Mozete samo zamisliti koliko sam bila sretna, iznenadjena i uzbudjena kada sam ugledala nevjerovatno sladak bros u obliku oblacica. Tacno se sjecam kako sam skakutala od srece u hodniku i bas se istinski obradovala kao malo dijete. Mislim da ce mi muzonja puzonja oprostiti taj neobicni spektakl i vratolomije jer sam dosla kuci sa posla i reakcije su bile bas iskrene. Ja samo mogu reci da sam se zaljubila u ovaj meteoroloski bros (ja ga tako zovem)! Ne znam ni sama kako je draga Amira uspjela pogoditi bas moju slabost jer inace 'padam' na slicice oblacica te imam i jedan dzemperak koji na ledjima ima gotovo identicnu sliku kakva je na brosu. Jos nisam pokazala bros kolegama sa posla i jedva cekam da to ucinim jer sam sigurna da ce biti odusevljeni koliko sam i ja. Pufnasti segmenti oblacka, suptilne sjajne cestice, odabir boja i sarene kapljice kise - pa sve je tako divno. Kako se ne raznjeziti? Slicnu reakciju je izazvao bros sa kisobrancicem crvene boje koji je posut bijelim tackicama - cak su tu i mini srce i masnica. Toliko slatkoce na jednom mjestu! Mislim da izgleda jako lijepo i posebno te ga vec mogu zamisliti na mantilima koje cu da nosim na proljece. Savrseno ce uveseljavati proljetne kisne dane u kombinaciji sa gumenim cizmicama - biti ce pravi hit! Naravno, vjerujem da ste sve vec primjetile i preslatku sovicu bros koja ima dosta detalja. Ono sto mi se jako dopada kod Gđica Mašnica nakita jeste cinjenica da je jako lagan. Tako da, kada zakacite bros na majicu ili dzemper, nece ga razvuci na tom mjestu, niti ostaviti vidljive rupice kada ga skinete. Da li su vam okice primjetile i narukvicu sa bezbroj detalja? Oh, kako je krasna! Tresnja crvena mi je omiljena varijacija crvene boje a moram reci da je bilo zadovoljstvo otkrivati svaku sitnicu na ovoj narukvici. Malecka srcad, sidra, sunasce, sicusna cipelica, zvjezdica i ruzice... Sve skupa djeluje tako 'bogato' a narukvica je tako lagana i ugodna za nositi te je mogu kombinovati uz svaki komad odjece. Nakon toliko gugutanja, mislim da vam je jasno koliko mi se sve istinski dopada od drage Gđice Mašnice - nase talentovane Amire. Brosevi kostaju 5-6KM (ovisno o slozenosti dizajna), narukvice 6KM, lancici 8KM a dvodijelni setovi (lancic i nausnice ili lancic i prsten) 10 KM. Ruku na srce, mislim da je cijene prilagodila nasem trzistu i svi su komadi nakita realisticno zacijenjeni te vjerujem da ce odgovarati svakom dzepu. Ako sam vas barem malo zaintrigirala, ohrabrujem vas da kontaktirate dragu Amiru preko njene Gđica Mašnica Facebook stranice). Jako je ljubazna, odgovara na upite i spremna je napraviti nesto bas po vasem ukusu. Mislim da bi joj bilo drago ako bi spomenule ko vas je uputio na nju jer zaista zasluzuje svaku preporuku - a moju sigurno ima.
