Eva Schreuder jewellery

Today is my five year wedding anniversary. How time flies! It struck me that most of my jewellery was a gift from my husband. He knows I really love jewellery and whenever there is a special occasion, like the birth of my son or my birthday he gives me something for my ‘collection’. This way every big emotional moment connects with a piece and tells its story which I really like.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting – over and over announcing your place in the family of things.”  ― Mary Oliver {1. hannah lemholt / 2.model : lina lindholm | hair & mua jossi madsen | © hannah lemholt / honeypieLivingetc.
