The smell of coffee in the morning, the sun touching your face, laughing until your belly hurts, the first bite of that incredible chocolate cake… Tight hugs, lazy picnics in a spring afternoon… Silence, swimming in the sea, a glass of wine, some ice cream...
Inspired by Amélie Poulain's idea of "...cultivating a particular taste for the small pleasures: putting her hand in a bag of seeds; piercing the crust of crème brûlée with a tip of spoon; skipping stones across the St. Martin canal.", the collection Everyday Small Pleasures is an ode to the simplicity and ordinary pleasures of life.
JOY IN THE SIMPLICITY
I absolutely adore this idea of enjoying the small pleasures; after all, those are the moments that will help us build a fulfilling life.
After thinking a lot about this topic - and with a bit of help from Amélie - I decided to create a collection with this idea in mind. My starting point was that these small pleasures of life have three things in common:
1. they are simple; 2. you need to be aware of them, be present; and 3. usually, they are not fancy at all.
Having the concept of small pleasures as the bone structure for the collection, I decided to translate it into jewellery as follows
From start to finish, all jewellery from the Everyday Small Pleasures collection is handcrafted to order.
Working this way allows the pieces to carry the signature of Pinah's jewellery, where no two pieces are ever the same, making each and every creation truly unique.
