Hear the sound of the Earth

The love of nature is in the center of our creations. Most of the jewelry pieces in my collections are made from some organique or mineral material from earth. 

 

Hear the sound of the Earth moving

This is the sound of earth moving captured from the deepest open hole on the planet by the multimedia artist Lotte Geeven. For billions of years, the Earth has silently traveled through space, spinning around the sun without making a sound. Even here on the planet, there's been little to hear. But now with the right recording equipment and processing, we can get a sense of what it sounds like for the planet to spin and spin while looping around the sun. Read more...

 

How Earth Sounds from Space?

There is no sound in space  - it's a vacuum and there is no air. So this sound is not picked up by microphones on satellites. The following sound is from radio waves given off by the earth that's beenconverted into audio by computer.

French Riviera: Uniquely Chic

I just stumble on this video which remind me my tour of "La Côte d'azur".  I just decide to share this Rick Steves' Europe video with you.  Who knows where you're going to travel the next vacations!!!!

In fairytale Monaco, we listen to the graceful reshuffling of personal fortunes at the casino, then we follow in the footsteps of 19th century aristocrats along Nice's Promenade des Anglais, and visit the picturesque, artist hangouts of Chagall, Matisse and Picasso.

France’s Loire Château Country

I just stumble on this video which remind me my tour of "Les château  de la Loire".  I just decide to share this Rick Steves' Europe video with you. Who knows where you're going to travel the next vacations!!!!

Along the Loire River Valley, the beautiful French countryside is studded with evocative châteaux. Home-basing in Amboise, we visit four unique castles: elegant Chenonceau, massive Chambord, stately Cheverny, and fragrant Villandry. Along the way, we tour Leonardo’s home, feed hunting dogs, enjoy the local cuisine, and savor a princely garden.
