Caspita Jewelry

Caspita is a Swiss luxury jewelry brand created by Arlène Bonnant. The jewelry are real pieces of art with geometric shapes which remind me Moorish patterns. I love the Caspita jewelry’s geometry and colours. The shapes are very inspired and original. If you like Oriental and Indian geometrical patterns you would like Caspita. Besides, “Caspita” is a lovely and great name. It is an italian word which means in french “ma parole!” and in english “good heavens!”.

Moorish stars

This geometric figure is called an “eight-pointed star” ; it is formed by two overlapping squares. This form is a very famous pattern in the islamic arts. It symbolises the synthese between the circle (symbol of the divin, of the origin and of the perfection) and the square (symbol of the earthly and of the creation).

Under the rainbow

Iris (rainbow in Greek) is the rainbow deesse and messager of the gods. She is charged to deliver the divine messages to the mortals. The rainbow is the Iris manifestation ; it is the bridge between the earth and the sky. To the poets, the rainbow is the track of the Iris’s foot when she descends quickly from the Olympus to the earth. They also name the rainbow as the Iris’s scarf.

Dreaming of a delicious summer

Lost in thoughts,
I dream of a flowered and delicious summer.
The taste of ripe fruits,
The heady perfume of flowers
come to me.
I look forward to the arrival of summer,
Season of joy and hope.

The illustrator of children books  Jane Ray

Jane Ray is an English illustrator of children books. I admire her universe and the way she illustrates. Her style is unique and recognizable : frises, gold, enchanted nature, starry sky, exquisite details, poetry… It is a pleasure and  a delight to contemplate her draws. I love particulary “Magical tales” and “Mythical birds and beats from many lands” by Margaret Mayo and illustated by Jane Ray.
