What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Summertime Sadness




It is with a heavy heart that I mark the official last day of summer (cue heavy sighs and downcast eyes). I can’t complain too much, since we’re also off to spend a week in our favorite summer spot, but the end of the season still makes me a bit blue. So I thought today, in honor of the last gasp of my favorite season, we deserved something special. Enter KUKLAstudio.

You may recall seeing the earrings above in my 150th Etsomnia™ post (My Favorite Things), but I thought this artist’s work was so refreshing and lovely, it needed my full attention. (And yours.)

Self-described as a nomad jewelry design studio, KUKLAstudio’s maker Elitsa divides her time between Barcelona (Spain) and Sofia (Bulgaria). I typically ask artists if they’d give me a quote about what inspires them, how they got started, or anything else they’d like to communicate to my readers. The lovely Elitsa, though, was having none of me. She explained that she has very little time to devote to communication because her focus is on her art. And it really shows.

Her luminous jewelry is made of glass resin, sterling silver, copper, and, by the looks of it, sunshine. I plan on purchasing enough pieces to get me through the long, bleak winter.

You may check out all of KUKLAstudio’s beautiful work on their website and in their Etsy shop.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  1. Oh man. I may have to break a vow. When I emigrated, I downsized my collection of jewellery and vowed to just live with the pieces I already have – especially since living with kids and working with smaller kids means I tend to wear the same pieces over and over. But I’m very tempted by these pieces. They remind me of jewellery my Gran used to buy me which is perhaps why.
