Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

More custom orders

I´ve been getting several custom orders lately, so I´ve been braiding a lot.
Two child bracelets were rush orders for a birthday party, so I didn´t even have time to take pictures of them! I´m planning to make more of them, they are popular birthday gifts for litle girls.

This is a foot chain in thin braid with sterling silver details. I hope the owner will wear it a lot this summer!

A friend wanted a thin, long bracelet to wrap twice around her vrist. I´m planning to make a variety of this, even longer, to wrap 3 times around and it can double as both a foot bracelet (two times around) or necklace.

This is a necklace made for someone who loved the bracelet I´ve made in this color/ pattern, but never uses bracelets. She wanted the 16 thread braid for a short chocker-style necklace instead.

Custom orders are very welcome, aren´t they? ! I can imagine those bracelets looking good on little girls. Wishing you a great International Women's Day!
