Last weekend, I discovered this lovely Dutch jewellery designer at the Invasie of Antwerp - a platform for young designers. Most of the jewellery displayed there had those angular shapes which you see everywhere nowadays - and which I'm SO over seeing!
And then I spotted her, tucked away in a corner. This lovely young girl, who'd made her own, really original display, floating through the space she was assigned. Her pieces have a really delicate, refined touch. I admire bold jewellery on others, but on me it doesn't work. Looking for the right kind of accessories, therefore, can be frustrating. Eva's work, though, looked as if it was made for me. They have a slight vintagey feel and are beautifully matte, which I love in jewellery. The fact that she turned out to be a really kind girl, a sensitive soul with a passion for beauty, was a bonus. I actually had to stop myself from giving her a hug! I couldn't NOT buy something and now I'm the proud owner of one of her rings. A ring to celebrate new beginnings and my own strength. Thank you Eva!
Check out more of her work on Eva Schreuder.

The Islands, Agnes Martin, 1961
I have always loved her work, but had never seen this interview.

I want to live in this cabin in New Zealand! Done up by the team behind the line x shape x colour blog.
The last picture is the cabin before its renovation, but I actually like it more than its new outside, which you can see here.
