    Annuk Creations - colorfull jewelry from Greece

    As I was writing on the other day, I´ve been seeking on starting a new interview/articles series about wonderful artists I know from Etsy.
    Etsy, for those who do not know, it´s an online handmade market, full of wonderful people selling there arts and crafts.
    So, is it not the better way to start the series featuring Annuk Creations, from Anna, who surprise me, the other way, with a flattering post about my work?

    Annuk Creations


    I´ve been working on this post quiet a while.
    My problem is that I´m  afraid to fail to do justice to the excellent work of Anna, her blog and her commitment.
    Ando a escrever este post já faz um tempo. Tenho de medo de não conseguir transmitir o que sinto quanto ao trabalho da Anna, o seu blog e a sua dedicação.

    We read in some crafts posts about creating a brand, a cohesive image, a presence online, etc, etc.
    This is not easy, I speak for myself, but there are people in this world that can do this perfectly.

    Lemos em alguns posts sobre a necessidade de conceber uma imagem coesa, uma marca com forte presença online, reconhecivel. Não é fácil consegui-lo, e falo por mim.
    Mas existem pessoas que o conseguem, e que o fazem parecer fácil.

    The pieces that Anna makes are colorful fresh, beautiful, warm, cosy, and if you visit her blog, it´s exactly the same image.
    Colorful images about her work and surroundings, landscape wonderful photos, a beautiful light and a warm spirit that makes my day beautiful.

    As peças da Anna são coloridas, frescas, leves, bonitas, lindas, fofas, e se visitarem o seu blog, a imagem transmitida é a mesma.

    Her works are inspired in the Mediterranean colors, culture, light and beauty, and her dedication and love to her works can be seen in her work, in her blog and site. 

    Os seus trabalhos são inpirados no Mediterraneo, cores, cultura e beleza.
    E a atenção que dedica ao seu trabalho é visivel nas suas peças, blog e site.

    Anna is creating since she can remember. Always a craft girl, experimenting and creating, the mixing of material is her favorite part of her work.

    Desde pequena que a Anna é uma artesã. experimentando, criado, misturando materiais, sendo esta última a parte que mais a realiza.

    With a wide range of materials, she works glass, polymer clay, metal sheets and wood, the mystery is to know what she is going to use next.

    Num grand leque de materias, Anna consegue sempre surpreender como uso de materias como o vidro, polymer clay, madeira, metal  e com as composições que cria.

    She loves experimenting, and mixing, and she does it in a natural and always successful way.

    Ela adora experimentar, misturar, conjugar, e fá-lo naturalmente e com sucesso.

    3. Yes, this is lovely Anna! She is like the blue sky and turquoise sea and the sun of the Aegean countries and so are her creations. She is kind and dear too, she loves animals, especially kitties, and she appreciates and enjoys the mountains and landscape of her corner in Italy. Flowers are her darlings and Rodos is her treasure, and certainly blue, the most wonderful and shining blue, is her color! :-)
