Want to know what a day in the life of a jewellery maker looks like? Here’s a little glimpse at my day today! My days normally start with coffee and waking up the kids for breakfast, prepare lunch boxes and driving them to school (except for weekends, of course). Once I have done that, it’s off to my studio for me. Then to my absolute favourite part of the day – making and sending out goodies to my clients! Some days are the same, some days are different, but I am so blessed to be doing what I love.

Martisor - A celebration of Spring

1 MarchLavinia Untea

 In modern times, and especially in urban areas, the Mărțișor lost most of its talisman properties and became more a symbol of friendship, love, appreciation and respect. 

Do you have friends, acquaintances or relatives of Romanian, Moldavian, Macedonian, Greek or Bulgarian origin? Do you want to surprise them? Then this is the gift you are looking for. On March 1, give the 'Martisor', 'Martenitsa ", 'мартеница ' or 'μάρτης' to them and they will be surprised and delighted. Do not forget to leave one “Martisor” for yourself.
