Rauli in Egypt... Frida in Puerto Rico

Last week my son Rauli went with his classmates and professor Anna Georas to an international study trip to Egypt, Istanbul and Greece. Rauli studies at the School of Architecture, University of Puerto Rico. They are now traveling through Egypt and are exploring and studying the ancient ruins, pyramids and tombs of the Egytians. This important study trip is made to complete the classroom experience, to gain new perspectives, and to study architecture in a foreign environment in order to enhance the understanding of the discipline.

Here we are at the airpot minutes before they leave to Egypt through Spain. In the first picture Rauili is with me, and in the second with his father Raúl (We miss him so much but we are very happy for him). I will soon post some photos of this study trip.

And... I just wanted to show you a picture of one of my Frida's Pendant. I love everything about the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. I created this pendant using an innovative transfer technique in a jade stone. It is wrapped in sterling silver wire.
