Bijou végétal

It is without a doubt that nature has been inspiring humans in various ways for a long time.

It should not be a surprise then that our planet’s flora have influenced some jewellery creations maybe it be in their design, shape and colors.

But how about wearing and carrying a little piece of nature with you? This is the innovative concept that two long time friends, Manuella and Maryse have worked on to come up with a vegetal jewellery collection:  Bijou Végétal.

If ever you were looking for gifts for your loved ones who are also nature lovers… this might be interesting gift idea to consider.



World Music Day

As the world celebrates World Music Day, today 21st June, I wanted to celebrate this special day by sharing the incredible works of American artist Melissa McCracken.

She uses her synesthesia to share her perception of the world through her artworks. She literally paints music…

If you ever wondered what Imagine by John Lennon might look like…

Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen, covered by Jeff Buckley

Time by Pink Floyd

At last by Etta James

You can check out the works of Melissa McCracken on her official website as well as on her Instagram account.


Butterfly Effect

The “Butterfly Effect” ink creation from the contemporary artist Michael van Straaten recently caught my eye.

It is based on the butterfly effect concept in chaos theory where small causes can have much bigger impacts.


Philip Larkin – The Trees

Just discovered this animation created to illustration the poem ‘The Trees’ by the English poet Philip Larkin…

A serene way to start this week…


Check out the video : The Trees by Philip Larkin from Lucy Izzard.

The Trees

The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.

Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too,
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.

Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In fullgrown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
