A touch of green

Sometimes, a certain touch of color can change a creation 180 degrees, be it in a painting, interior design, on a piece of clothing or jewelry. It is the one element that makes the creation fabulous, keeping it away from being plain or too common.

This is how I feel about the touch of green in these jewels:

Behind the scenes - Bouquet d'ailes by Boucheron

Have you ever wondered what it takes to give life to an exquisite piece of jewelry?

I've just found this wonderful necklace from Boucheron and it’s quite amazing to see how it was made. Very briefly said, we are talking about more than 9 months of fabrication, over 1250 working hours and more than 2300 gems.

Addicted to music

Can you imagine life without music?

Music means vibration, pulsation if you want. It comforts us, gives us joy or makes us relax, it is therapy for those in need and inspiration for those blessed with the act of creation.

Music makes us dance and enjoy the moment, enjoy ourselves, enjoy life.

The summer is here so let’s dance on the beach, in the park and gardens, on the terraces of clubs, in our own apartment with the windows wide open. Just bring it on the floor and dance like you never did before. J

Now, do you feel the music in your life?
