This month I’m developing a manifesto based on unusual words that delight me and represent my interests as I blog through the alphabet in the A-to-Z challenge. Today we’re visiting the letter B.
B is for bibelot.
n: “a small object of curiosity, beauty, or rarity; a trinket; a beautiful bauble; a book of unusually small size.
I love to create bibelots. So much so that’s the name of my studio.
I do my share of creating sacred objects and talismans, but I also create jewelry, journals, and zines. I bind books, I make paper, write poetry, and send out love letters. I love color; create magical scented blends with essential oils; do off-loom beading, and make herbal beads.
From tiny bibelots to the grandeur of nature and everything in between, I believe the world is filled with treasures. It’s up to us to notice and appreciate them, and create our own as well.
What are you doing to add to the beauty of this world? What lovely little treasure do you value? Do tell – you know I want to hear.
