Can you believe these are completely handmade?
From three different types of wood including some from an old violin?
That they aren't store-bought beads?
That they were sneakily crafted in a music shop?
See my flickr page for more.
For those in the area, here is a quick plug for Mezzo Marketplace and Eatery. You can stop in for breakfast, lunch, coffee, sweets or to pick up fresh bread and sides to accompany a homemade dinner. But the real gem is their Small Plates and Tableservice, a 5-course dinner served in the most beautiful outdoor garden patio. I want my whole life to look like their patio. Does that make sense? I think if you see it, it would.
(Note: All courses are optional and I strongly recommend sharing at least a few or skipping a few, unless you want to be stuffed to the max with an empty wallet.)
