Istanbul Memories





They are many ways creat something that inspires you as a designer. Most of my works are influence by the Belle Epoque artists Mucha and Klimt ore just from antique materials from 1900. An inner voice was the impulse by crafting this spats ... i also was inspired...but in another way. It was something special...and touches my heard by working....brought back memories of my time in Turkey where my mother comes from...where i had so beautiful and lucky days in Istanbul as a child. I remember that we had a case full with old kaftans....and the red fabric from that spats was a piece from that case and from an antique ottoman dress. Istanbul is not just a town...Istanbul is a crafty place with a heardbeat that you can hear, smell and feel whenever you think about. That feeling was the influence by crafting my Orient Treasuries and i think that these feelings are diamonts for any artists and crafters life. Unique handmade crafts are full of spirit :-) Enjoy

Hope and...GOD IN THE TREES, OR THE INFINIITE MIND IN NATURE



YOU are fortunate if you love trees, and especially the wild ones growing where the Great Creative Force placed them, and independent of man's care. For all things we call "wild" or "natural" are nearer the Infinite Mind than those which have been enslaved, artificialized and hampered by man. Being nearer the Infinite they have in them the more perfect Infinite Force and Thought That is why when you are in the midst of what is wild and natural--in the forest or mountains, where every trace of man's works is left behind you feel an indescribable exhilaration and freedom that you do not realize elsewhere.

Victorian Denim Glamour Spats






This are the elaborated spats i ever made.
For this special pair i used denim and luxury
materials.
Original edwardian bead work on tulle
ornamental trims and buttons come from the
time about 1900.
The internal side was enclosed with a sateen trim.
Extraordinary is the open denim seam
on the inside and the open and fringid edge in the front area.
A combination of shabby and glamour.
Lace and Denim these days are up to date so
this is my way and style to show you my
unique creations.
I hope you like it. Enjoy by watching
Maide

Dies sind die aufwendigsten Gamaschen die ich je gemacht habe.
Denim und kostbare Materalien wurden für dieses
Unikat verwendet.
Original Jugendstil Perlearbeiten auf Tüll,
Zierborten und Knöpfe stammen aus der Zeit um 1900.
Der innere Saum wurde mit einem Satinband eingefasst.
Aussergewöhnlich ist der sichtbere Denim Saum
auf der Innenseite und die offene und fransige Kante im vorderen Bereich.
Eine Kombination aus Shabby und Glamour...denn
Spitze und Denim liegen zur Zeit voll im Trend.
Dies ist meine Art beides zu vereinen und
meinen Stil zu präsentieren.
Ich hoffe euch gefällt es.
