Pretty simple

My tastes are simple. I like simple, but it has to have quality. A handful of quality items means more to me than owning loads of stuff of little quality. I learned that early on within my own family: quality over quantity. It cuts down on the clutter, too.

I like the Italian term: sprezzatura. It dates from the Renaissance, meaning something that looks simple, but has a lot of thought and work behind it.


  1. Oh wow. The more i stare at the bracelet here, the more i love it! I really enjoy the simplicity of the lines too. Did you make this one? What is the clear sparkly bit? Beautiful little details!
