Eating cherries with Marvin
The piece I present today was made for an order - my colleague (another again) knew what she wanted and asked me to make it for her. She told me that when she was a kid she used to put cherries onto her ears and she wanted something similar.
This earring reminded me of a very pleasant and heart-warming memory of mine. Two years ago I was kind of a freelancer for a while. It was summer and I spent much time at my boyfriend’s house. He has a nice garden and whenever I could, I stood up from the computer and stayed outside for a little sunbath, reading newspapers or books and playing with Marvin, who was still a puppy that time. There is a cherry tree in the garden and I remember standing underneath, picking cherries with Marvin at my feet, collecting whatever fell down or was thrown away by me. We stayed silent and nothing special happened but this is such a lovely memory to me: eating cherries in the summertime garden with Marvin. This is a photo of Marvin from this time:
