Opening a new store in Korcula has been a huge challenge, paperwork is endless, my language skills are inadequate and there is so much to learn. We have now moved on from the issues of opening and need to fill our store.
Adolf has been working long hours, creating beautiful filigree jewels. Watching him work is endlessly fascinating for me, I still marvel at the skill & patience that is involved in creating such intricate pieces of jewellery. Beautiful wearable art works are now emerging in our store and we are creating some fun displays. Whilst it is great to have a fine display for us it is even better when we can sell his work (pay some bills!) and have happy customers leaving our store.
Last week the pieces above were sitting on the work table when we had a visitor from Quebec looking for some earrings, unfortunately this work was not finished; so I asked
‘How long are you here?’
‘For one more week’, was the reply
‘We can finish this pair for you, it will be no problem, please come back on Thursday evening’
You can see the finished product below, the balls have wings – they are now in Quebec, Ms Quebec was delighted with her earrings, and for us it is a great feeling to know that we were able to bring her a small amount of joy that will last a lifetime.
