anastasia & l'accent nou


i'd like to introduce you to my friend,
anastasia.

you probably already know her
from her amazing etsy shop,
{here}

her handmade ceramic jewelry
is regularly on the front page of etsy.

or you may know her
from her beautiful blog, also named
i have her on my blogroll
over there at the right.
i love to get a glimpse of her life
and also to see her ceramic processes
{like pit-firing}.
be sure to read this post to see the love
she puts into her creations.

i am lucky to count her as my friend
and also as one of my readers,
so you may know her from her comments here.

i have admired her work for a long time
and we struck up a friendship
on etsy last year.
we are both mothers of three children.
she is a beautiful, talented woman
with a generous heart.
her artwork inspires me.
i hope to meet her in person one day.

anastasia is from russia,
near the caspian sea,
but now lives on mallorca island,
off the coast of spain.
she lives, with her family, near this paradise

last spring,
i ordered these from her shop
one for me and one for missy.
i love mine and wear it almost
every single day.
it is my rustic, delicate, tribal pearl necklace.
it suits my style perfectly
and goes with anything i'm wearing,
i'm pretty sure missy loves hers, too.
she layers hers with other necklaces.
here is missy wearing hers:
hi, missy!
{you can get your own tribal pearl necklace here}

the necklaces came packaged
with fancy chocolates and confetti
and paper flags and other treats
just like a party.
with other special presents
and secret notes tucked inside.


very recently, anastasia surprised me with this
because she knew that i loved it.
isn't it just so beautiful??
{you can get your own here}
she also sent some other special presents,
including sweet little christmas ornaments
just like these.
they graced our GIANT christmas tree,
and will forevermore.
