Silver jewelry in my reopened, little "wandsilber" shop on etsy!

a second chance for my tiny "art shop" on etsy.... I didn´d find a suitable place for my silver earrings so far, as they aren't corresponding to my donauluft bead jewelry concept , so I decided to reopen my silver shop to get them presented in a more appropriate way.

voila: some of these are listed....raw, unique jewelry with an industrial impression, mainly made of recycled silver which piles up in my studio.

 my raw silver jewelry is not designed for the opera ball or the white tie invitation, but a cool way to smarten up your every day outfit!

these aren't listed, they are mine,  maybe too raw, but I love this impro touch!

Well done, daughter!

After finishing a traineeship at the EU delegation in Peking she opened a case concerning the European Action Service´s (EEAS) practice of offering unpaid traineeships in EU delegations!
and now, after years it seems there is a chance to change this for the better!

read the article here:

Ombudsman: System of unpaid trainees in EU foreign delegations should end

This is great and shows: involvement  pays off
Now it is important to spread the word to push the implementation in Brussels!
....Btw, in a few days is the international day of social equity
have a great weekend!
