An earring pair I made with enamel pieces from @numinosity , recycled glass beads, and czech glass beads. Indeed, I have a favorite color palette ;) #earrings #jewelry #numinosity #lampwork #artbeads #recyledbeads #czechglassbeads #blue #green #turquoise #rustic #organic #tribal #enamel #ancient #treasure #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #thisisleipzig #lieblingleipzig
Some lampwork beads and enamel pieces made by @numinosity that arrived today! Just look at these gorgeous, crusty, organic, colorful pieces! Kimberly's beads were the first art beads I ever bought and I am still adicted ❤🐙❤ #stash #haul #artbeads #numinosity #beads #lampwork #enamel #organic #crusty #ancient #artelements #art__elements #addiction #love #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #iloveleipzig #lieblingsleipzig #treasure
A few of my new stars... I made a lot more but run out of earring cards. Now I have to wait until I get new ones. Sometimes I stamp them, sometimes I paint them... and the holes are drilled using a dremel. It took me years (already owning a dremel!) until I had the idea. Before that I cut them all by hand... ;) @fimostaedtler @dremel #earrings #earstuds #polymerclayjewelry #fimo #stars #polymerclay #pattern #colorful #tags #paper #earringcards #dremel #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #handmade #jewelry #leipzig #iloveleipzig #thisisleipzig
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I try to calm down playing with water colors. Most of the time I am relaxed and also enjoying my failures because they taught me something. But sometimes I want the paint to flow and am also the one preventing it. During that times I don't like anything I create at all. A day or two later I come back to the work and then see parts I like and parts I will have to work on. So I like and don't like this sketch at the same time ;) #watercolorpainting #watercolor #sketchbook #dailysketch #schminckehoradam #schminckekünstlerfarben #formentera #lamola #island #ocean #learning #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #iloveleipzig #lieblingsleipzig
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - #sneakpeak for our theme challenge at @art__elements - this month's topic is #swirls The earrings are made with polymer clay and painted with acrylic paint. There will even be an easy tutorial at the end of the month how to create molds for the swirls you see here :) #earrings #earstuds #aeswirl #AEthemechallenge #artelements #art__elements #polymerclayart #polymerclay #fimo @fimostaedtler #acrylicpaint #pattern #moldmaking #saraccino #saraccinobycf #jewelry #polymerclayjewelry #purple #handmade #leipzig #lieblingleipzig #iloveleipzig

Even some morning glory blooming in the dark corner. Our balcony is our tiny oasis hidden from the rest of the world. #flower #blooming #purple #morningglory #tricolor #onmybalcony #urbangarden #citylife #leipzig #reudnitz #balcony #urban #garden #needsomecolor #saraccino #saraccinobycf #summer #iloveleipzig #thisisleipzig #hidden #oasis
Finally! RAIN! The plants on our balcony were stressed but still green since we watered them twice daily. The plants in the park at our front are really fighting. There is no grass anymore only the blank earth and even the trees are losing all leaves and start dying. The heatwave was not the problem but that there was nearly no rain coming down in the last months. And keep in mind we are talking about Germany where summertine is normally also the time when most rain is falling. Hopefully there will be a lot of water coming down and not only five minutes... #rain #heatwave #storm #water #urgently #needed #life #draught #end #aridity #citylife #urban #onmybalcony #germany #2018 #leipzig #thisisleipzig #lieblingleipzig #saraccino #saraccinobycf #plants #reudnitz

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I created this lid several years ago. I use it to hold some small snails and sea shells that I want to use for this month's theme challenge “swirls“. The lid already fit into the theme ;) #polymerclay #fimocreations #lizard #treasure #seashell #snailshell #swirl #AEthemechallenge #aeswirl #artelements #art__elements #saraccino #saraccinobycf #leipzig #lieblingleipzig #thisisleipzig #ammonite #lid #box @fimostaedtler #bettlewings
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I never showed this monoprint that I made some time ago. I created the collage monoprint using photocopies for paint resist. One was a book cover, the other a scientific magazine I had.

Difficult to capture using only my mobile as camera: Our balcony as seen from the innercourtyard. We are living in the third floor (base floor is zero here in germany, so it is the fourth level) in an old apartment building with high ceilings. So quite high for my poor mobile ;) The morning glory and clematis are climbing up - rosmary, incense, and lychsimachia are hanging down... ❤💞🐙💞❤ #urbangarden #citylife #hidden #paradise #onmybalcony #balcony #gardening #urban #flowrrs #plants #overgrown #morningglory #rosmary #incense #green #nature #reudnitz #leipzig #saraccino #saraccinobycf #summer #summertime #home #lieblingsleipzig #thisisleipzig
Third blooming time since the fuchsia “moved in“ with us. She is growing, blooming, growining and blooming again! While a lot of our plants are suffering under the heat wave even with being watered twice per day, the fuchsia is quite protected from direct sunlight the whole day. #fuchsia #urbangarden #onmybalcony #urban #gardening #citylife #leipzig #summer #summertime #heatwave #sunshine #flower #plants #balcony #home #hidden #paradise #pink #reudnitz #saraccino #saraccinobycf #iloveleipzig #lieblingleipzig

Evening sun. Summertime. 32°C. Coffee. Grapes. Flowers. Life like it should be. Only work was preventing me spending the whole day like this ;) #leipzig #reudnitz #summer #urbangarden #citylife #onmybalcony #fuchsia #morningglory #plants #hidden #paradise #coffee #feierabend #flowers #summertime #iloveleipzig #thisisleipzig #saraccino #saraccinobycf #urban
We were at a wedding from one of my husband's friends. After the cake and before the dinner we had some time to relax outside. The only downside? The mosquitos ate me alive ;) #wedding #ermlitz #weekend #saturday #friends #quietmoments #summertime #relax #old #kulturgut #saraccino #saraccinobycf #bohemian #boho
As much as I show here our urban garden on our tiny wee balcony as well as my mixed media creation - I work as a scientist in research. I just read an essay in #laborjournal and it was a pladoyer that we working in research should try to show more of our work. No, I don't have the time (or nerves next to a really time-intensive job) to write long and easy to understand blog posts or so. I also honestly don't see it as my duty! I actually give talks about my work, science and stem cell biology for a general audience in my spare time. But that is still not my duty. Just to be clear because I hear this demand to scientists so often. I have more than enough to do with writing grants because most contracts are limited, to supervise students, to write publications, to try to fit this in between the administrative tasks, and, beware, actually also do some research. So... a way too long introduction and one that sounds a little bit like “heck no!“. ;) But... the author in the essay agreed with me, but also said, maybe in an age where facts don't count anymore, lies are easily propagated, and “feelings“ are more worth than trained experts, maybe it would help if we at least interact in small ways like posting a picture from work. So, yes, no excuse not to do this from time to time. Because after all I love science and nothing compares (for me) to research! That is the camera control of our BD Influx - a cell sorter. What you see are 5 streams of a six-way sort I did today. Six way sort means that I sorted 6 different kind of cell types from one cell sample from one person. The fluid stream is broken up in small drops using a piezo element and every drop gets charged. Depending whether the charge is negative or positive and how high the charge is, the drops can then be deflected to one side or the other. And yes, the cells will survive the sorting process! #scientist #research #bdinflux #facs #cellsorting #fluorescenceactivatedcellsorting #bdbiosciences #daily #workday #facts #biology #medical #science #cells #stream #leipzig #saraccino #saraccinobycf #thisisleipzig #lieblingsleipzig #dayjob
Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I also played with water colour sketched for the #AEthemechallenge last month at @art__elements - sunflowers.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I love these simple earrings: Nail polish and glass cabochons! Super easy, cute, and fast to create. Also one of my favorite fast workshops to give (I mean, I supply the material, give some handling tips, but I am not really needed ;) ) especially during events. These were made for the june theme challenge at @art__elements - sunflowers. Yes, the blueish-purple does not really fit in... but... the colour! ❤ #earrings #earstuds #sunflower #artelements #art__elements #aethemechallenge #aesunflower #glasscabochon #nailpolish #gold #sparkle #glitter #flakes #czechglassbeads #saraccino #saraccinobycf #bronze #yellow #sun #sunshine #inspiration #leipzig #lieblingleipzig #thisisleipzig #jewelry

Another wildlife photo from our tiny wee balcony: A ladybug larvae keeping watch over our rosmary! Sadly there are no aphids there. Since all our plants are really healthy, we only have one flower with a few aphids. Not sure whether it would be okay to help this little one to mive.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - I already showed the polymerclay components I made for the theme challenge “sunflowers“ at @art__elements - this is one of the earring pairs I made for it.

Repost from @saraccino_by_cf - One of the monoprints I made for the theme of the month challenge over at @art__elements - “sunflowers“. I used an old scientific review about how sunflowers are following the sun!

After I cut down all the roses from the first bloom (the ones the plant already had when we got it), it really went into overdrive growing! Finally it got new buds and the first one is opening. It sounds harsh cutting down the flowers from a plant but we often do it with store bought plants. Since they are often driven to bloom to early and too strong, they lack the energy to adapt to their new home. Also an easy target for plant diseases or aphids. #urbangarden #onmybalcony #rose #blooming #plants #urban #gardening #bloom #buds #balcony #garden #leipzig #reudnitz #thisisleipzig #lieblingleipzig #summer #oasis #hidden #paradise #saraccino #saraccinobycf #nature
