In 2007 I travelled to Rio de Janeiro for the first time to work their for 6 months. It was the first time that I ventured out to go so far and to an unknown destination that back then had a bad image. Rio is my favorite city in the whole world and it's a love affair that never ends!
These black palmtree earrings remind of the Jardim Botanico in Rio de Janeiro. One of the pictures that people take the most is one looking up to the palmtrees as it beautifully contrasts the blue sky. But even when it's grey the leaves look black which creates an intense & nostalgic shot.
