Much have happened since my last post and collection – family, work, and life in general, have gone onto another stage for me. My dear pling customers, fans, friends and supporters, thank you for all your lovely emails and notes during this time! You remind me about this little haven that I’ve created and help keep my humble dream alive! Pacing myself around this new routine, pling is back after the mad rush during the Xmas season. And I thank all of you for being so kind and patient with me and pling.
Now, onto my 1st post for this wonderful new year, and by sharing this inspiration during my one of my travels…
I was inspired by this sculpture which I saw at Musée d’Orsay in Paris – ‘La Petite Danseuse’ by Edgar Degas. Intrigued by the satin hair ribbons and real gauze skirts, this bronze dancer was a fine example of Impressionist art – powerful in emotions, and hyperreal with its real gauze tutu, pointe shoes and satin pink ribbons. Looking at the pictures I took of this beautiful piece of art, I recalled how tempted I was to add something to this pretty figure – a similarly petite bow necklace with an ethereal glitter from a single Swarovski crystal.
On hindsight, I created these to conjure that lovely memory, and to accompany your simpler days.
