New Eclastic ring

And because I loved the first Eclastic ring here I am again with another bizarre  idea. I’ve spent hours on the net looking for ideas and tutorial. Hours because my internet connection here is pathetic and slow. I had to put the modem on top of a tree. I came across an artist, Tonya O’Hara, […]

First Eclastic ring

Like most of the women I love rings and I love to be different everyday. I got inspiration from some “beadable rubber ring” that I saw on the net and I thought…why can’t I make it with plastic bottles? I’ve used a small fanta bottle, wire and some beads. The biggest challenge for me was […]

One of Sunworld safari guide, GK, once sent me a photo of a place called “look out”. A beautiful place on […]

Wine Charms

Every guest is different and every guest is special. We had honeymooners and we usually put fruits covered in chocolate and a bottle of wine in their tent at arrival. But this time I was looking for something different who could give the whole set up a magic and different touch, so I thought of doing bottle […]

The first Eclastic team!

Agnes Cecilia and Noolari are living in a village close to Talek, a small […]

Fabulous pink

This is one of my first creation with flowers. I love pink. Unfortunately I cannot find pink plastic bottle here so I’ve colored one with a mat spray and the result is not bad at all. This color represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving […]

Nick Ndeda and the dvds

I never really listen the radio. I get disturbed by the fact that I cannot choose the music and I cannot sing every single song. One day in the office I’ve discovered XFM 105.5 (Nairobi). Nice music and nice people. I love it and I listen to it every morning from 6:30 to 8:30 and […]
