There will be a bar, music and lots of goodies! Aaragauerstrasse 80, 8040 Altstetten, 11h-18h. Event and more details here.
...and I will have a little Christmas house there for 3 weeks, until December 15th. Come have a Glühwein and visit me!

Kreislauf 4&5 in Zürich starts today at 17h: I'll be in the BIG Viadukt with my spoons:
Friday May 23 - 17h-21h

The Big Bazar on Bahnhofstrasse will be restocked in a little bit.
Happy Kreislauf !
I am happy and proud to finally show you an extension of my "line", with a different use of silver cutlery.
They are the same old silver plated spoons but turned into bracelets!
I only have a few pieces for now (about 20 pieces), and will be showing and selling them at my stand in the BIG store in Viadukt, during the Kreislauf 4&5 this weekend in Zürich (Friday 16h-21h, Saturday 11h-18 and Sunday 11h-18h),
along with the usual customized spoons, of course!
They will be available for purchase on my website after the Kreislauf .
Each bracelet has the name and the year that the pattern was first produced; the ones I have so far range from 1937 to 1961, and each one comes with a fresh water pearl (see pictures).
