I recently sat down with Donata Zan, designer and owner of Acqua di Vetro.
Donata and I met many months ago and instantly became friends. You know when you meet someone and you hit it off instantly, kinda like you’ve known them your whole life? Well, yes, that pretty much sums up our great friendship.
Donata works in tourism by day and a jewelry designer by night. She recently showed me her new collection and I loved it! I told her we’ve got to do something. I want people to see what beautiful pieces she makes by hand, each piece is unique, no two are the same. What better way to introduce her new line then to have a contest.
Being the sweetheart that she is, she decided to give away 3 sets of her newest collection to 3 lucky readers!!
So, you guys are probably wondering what does she make? She creates necklaces, earrings, and rings made out of hand blown glass balls from Murano Italy and then she adds silk which she finds from the old vintage shops.
There are 3 different sizes S,M,L.
There are only 3 steps to have a chance to win 1 of 3 sets.

This past weekend over 100,000 visitors came to see Treviso celebrating the festival of flowers.
Around every piazza, every hidden corner , along the mura (wall), along the cobblestone roads you’ll see flowers galore.
In my personal opinion flowers have a way to make life itself a bit brighter. I hope this is a start to a new tradition in my charming and quaint city that I simply adore.
I can not take credit for the above photos.
I simply adore this photo. A great mixture of architecture and color.. Old and New.
