{Rose Bracelet from Enma in Spain - Blogger I Admire}

This week was one with surprise parcels arriving to our home. One of them came from Blogger friend ENMA-SW - El rinconcito artesano de Enma (just click the hyperlink). Enma is one of those Bloggers that I Admire! In about 2010, at a time that she was not feeling well, she started creating jewelry with Swarovski crystals and other beads and such. She caught my attention for several items she created and I was brave enough to ask her about one bracelet in particular; the grayish Rose Bracelet that she called 'Chan Luu de luxe'...
Here is the Rose Bracelet next to my Escada silk dress with roses... 
Enma had mailed it out via Registered Mail from Sevilla Spain on December 2nd.
We both got worried as it got kind of 'stuck' for 5 days at the ISC New York or the United States Postal Service's International Sorting Customs
Once it got cleared it came via New Jersey in 3 days to Dublin, Georgia.
On December 13, I got to sign for this special parcel...
Finally it ended its long journey across the Atlantic Ocean, all the way from Montequinto in Sevilla, Spain...
Both of us have visited Sevilla during our 19-day tour Spain and Portugal in 1994...
Look at 'Luces de Navidad en Sevilla 2013' (Christmas Lights 2013 - just click and see all 20!)
Lovely gift wrapped with lots of hearts... and with a Christmas card tucked inside as well.
Wow, look here what a cute little coin purse that is! 
With a Rose pull...
Enma sure knows how to keep it very exciting...
Here it is! A beautiful Rose Bracelet, all done between two Macramé cords with beautiful beads in-between.
Here it is on my arm, glistening beads stitched one by one between those two Macramé cords. 
What a work of art! 
Enma, thank you very much  for this beautiful and unique piece of jewelry. 
This dear blogger friend wanted to send it as a gift but with all the extras and the registered mail, I insisted to reimburse her at least for part of it.
Knowing very well that no one could ever repay all the time that went into making this fine piece!
Wish it would be warm enough to wear my Escada silk satin dress again + Rose Bracelet!
This photo is from Pieter's Birthday dinner a few years back...
Enma, thank you very much!

      Try your best Spanish and ask Enma...
      It would fit you well with all your exotic outfits for sure you would be able to match it with something perfectly.
      But it certainly is unique.

  14. Hello my dear friend Mariette,
    I'm so happy to see the beautiful bracelet and the sweet coin purse Enma gave you. She is also my blog friend. I remember when you once made a Giovanni Raspini letter give away, I paste the link in my blog, and she was interested on it. So, I explained her the rules and that is how she came to your blog, I'm so happy you both are also friends. Enma is an excellent artist, she really makes beautiful pieces of art. Enjoy your bracelet and the nice coin purse. I send you a big hug my dear friend.
    Lots of love,
    Laura :-)

      Thank you so much for guiding dear Enma over to my blog. I always loved following her and am amazed each time again at what she creates. This one I certainly loved right away when I found it. That coin purse is perfect for change, and so elegantly made.
      Big hug to you and once again thanks a million for your help and friendship!

    1. Dearest Celia,
      Thank you and you are so right about something made with care and love! Most things seem to be produced in a hurry and in such way that they must fall apart as soon as possible so more can be sold... Sad but true.
      Thank you for your compliment, it was a happy day and dinner with friends and family.
      Hugs and love to you,
