Imitation of a lovely thing…dievca desires

Oscar Wilde —
‘Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.’

dievca wants to be That Lady.
The lovely one on the train in Copenhagen.
The one who looks like she has it together.
The one who has personality.

In particular, dievca is in lust over her ring:

Isn’t it lovely?
So dievca started on a quest to recreate the ring. she contacted the Dark Gem Dom to see if he could identify what type of stone was in the Lady’s ring. And if he could help dievca buy a stone. The Gem Dom made some excellent suggestions for purchasing a rough stone and, as an accomplished gemcutter, He made time to facet the stone for dievca.

The completed stone,

With the apartment move, dievca’s Parents having challenges and Life in general, the gorgeous gem was set to the side — but dievca has  been collecting gold. 14K earrings that lost a mate, 14K broken bracelets and chains – whatever she can find in 14K yellow gold from her jewelry box and friends. she’s getting to the point where she has enough to send the gem, the gold and the photo to a jewelery maker friend. Woo Whooo!

A huge “Thank You” to the Dark Gem Dom for the help and the beautiful work.
If you want to connect with Him, send dievca a note. She’ll work on it. XO


Travel Disaster: Lanvin – Travel Savior: Núnoo

Did dievca tell you that she managed to lose her wallet during her travels? None of her accounts or creditcards were used, etc. she thinks it fell out randomly from a new backpack when she didn’t adjust the clips properly.

One of dievca work colleagues teased dievca by saying she should get a wallet that she can wear with a cord around her neck. deivca took that to heart and found a small crossbody bag with credit card slots to use for the rest of the trip.
Núnoo

The brand is “hot” in Denmark, being that it designed by a family in Greenland (which still has close ties to Denmark, Greenland is a self-governing overseas administrative division of Denmark since 1979.)

Beautiful soft calf leather, silver metallic zippers, adjustable shoulder strap. dievca wanted the blue – but it was sold out in the country!

Núnoo Small Shoulder Bag in Black

Nunoo is a family business with one thing on their mind: creating beautiful handbags and accessories, that gives you a luxurious feel and a quality-conscious expression.

dievca did keep the gorgeous, but unlucky Lanvin backpack…she ties the interior strings and has adjusted the closure clips. Should be ok, now. Sigh~
