A Squirrel Forever


This jewelry is very special to me. Last year I was in London and went to Kensington garden to feed the squirrels with nuts. And it was such a happy moment. I could have stayed there forever with these wonderful creatures. They just came and took the nut from our hands. And they stayed right beside us to eat our treats.


We took a lot of photos of them. And one of the squirrels became my jewelry. I took one of the photos and minimized it, and cut the squirrel out. Then I glued it on a digital sheet from Etsy. I took a vintage chandelier prism and glued the whole thing on.

In addition I bought a charm with a squirrel from Hint just to make it a bit more personal.

I cherish the memories of that moment and now I can wear it as well. And it hits me: It´s always the little things that really matter. And they are often free of charge. And it´s those moments that makes us rich and happy.

Here are the squirrel you see inside the chandelier. He´s eating one of the nuts I gave him.

And this is my hand (with my polymer bracelet) feeding a squirrel.
