Post earrings forever!

Hello there!

Today, as I was looking at my jewelry collection  I realized that my favorite kind of jewelry is post earrings. I can't say how many pairs I own! They are countless and I still keep buying!
Post earrings (or stud earrings) are probably the most easy to wear jewelry and they instantly transform any boring outfit to something new and glamorous! I can't leave my  house without wearing any earrings!

Here are some pairs that I found interesting in Etsy ...

The colors of these earrings are so beautiful and remind me of sunset! Check out the many gorgeous designs in Dafni's shop!

This shop is one of my favourites! Their earrings are so elegant and suitable for any occasion!

Really really cute button earrings for yourself or for your little girl! Efrat is a specialist in children's acessories! I love her hair clips too!

One of the most unique pairs of earrings I have ever seen! Two tiny bowls with goldfish on yor ears! So cute and girly!

These post earrings look so beautiful and delicate! Four little macarons in a box! I love them!

I could continue all day! The variety is huge and you can choose among many designs, materials and patterns! Don't forget to take a look at my own shop section that is especially dedicated to post earrings here!
Many new additions coming up!!!

Have a divine weekend everybody!

Apollo's divine corner

 Hello everyone!

Last week went for a little trip with my mum to Delphi. 

Delphi is located on the spurs of mount Parnassus and was the site of the Delphic Oracle. It was used by the ancient Greeks as a worshiping place for the god Apollo. 

It is the third time I've been to this magic place. As a child, as an acheology student and today!
There is always something new to discover here! The site ''speaks'' to your mind and soul. Here are some of the highlights of the place.

The temple of Apollo

Did you know that Delfi was concidered by the ancient Greeks as the ''Navel of the Earth''?

In this photo you can see how they portrayed that navel- or ''omfalos'' in greek.

Inside the museum I had the chance to admire one of my favourite sculptures ''The column of the Dancers''. It was an Athenian offering to the oracle.The figures are three young women, wearing short, transparent dresses and a basket-like hat on their heads (it is called Polos). Look at how gracefully they seem to move. It almost feels that they will come to life!

In Delphi I saw tourists from all over the world! They were all mesmerized by the natural beauty of the landscape and the world famous antiquities. 

Just imagine how this picture would look in the ancient years.... So magnificent! 
The perfect location to build a temple to Apollo!

These are only a few of the beautiful things that you can see in Delphi! Next time you are in the area, don't forget to pay a visit to the gods! You will not be dissapointed, that's for sure!!

Turquoise forever!

Turquoise is one of my favourite summer  colors! It is a trully greek color! Here is my collection for today!

As you can see, I chose an airy white dress and I combined it with turquoise accessories. This is a great outfit for a summer walk on a greek island. Simplicity and comfort is the key!

My first post!

Hello everyone and welcome to Divine Decadance!

 I'm Katerina, and I would like to introduce you to my little shop!

Here is how the story goes.......
Everything started on a hot summer day of 2012, when I was having a walk and  passed by a craft shop. Among many materials, the first thing  that caught my eye was polymer clay. I was impressed by the bright colours and the endless possibilities that this little cube had to offer! This was the day that I first used polymer clay! It was love at first sight!
After a while, many little things (especially sweet treats) came out of my oven! These were usually gifts to my friends, who encouraged me to start this little shop!

Many people wonder what does ''Divine Decadance'' mean. Well, this is a line taken from one of my all time favourite movies- Cabaret! It is said by Liza Minelli, as she smokes a cigarette and seems to enjoy it from the bottom of her heart. It's not that I approve of smoking, but this scene had a powerful impact on me. Liza's character felt so good when she was doing something that is concidered a ''guilty pleasure'', and this is what matters the most in my opinion! Enjoying the moment!  I hope that this is well represented in my shop! Little pieces of jewelry that bring joy and a sence of pleasure to anyone who looks at them and wear them!

That's all for now! I'll be back soon!
Have a divine day!
