Just over 4 years of friendship, and feels like a lifetime. Inspiring, supportive and creative. So rich as we grow together. Push and pull, or just stand by. December 2015 was a milestone for my dear friend Noemi Peli, stepping up on stage, so to stay, showing her first ceramic collection to the wilder audience at WAMP, the design fair in Budapest.
A few months earlier when Noémi had come to see me in Crete, I promised to be there and support her once she decides to finally start launching her amazing pieces of art. Thus keeping my word, off to go flying over for a pre-Christmas visit to Hungary.
Taking the role of an exhibitor and vendor for a day wasn’t new. Both of us have been in sales and marketing for the past 20 years, though I decided to quit the unhealthy pursuit of the modern business scene at the dawn of our friendship in 2012. Back then we mutually started dreaming about a lifestyle business, and being loyal to our core values and capabilities, we began to make steps towards our goals.
Introducing Naomipeli and her Ceramics&Leather collection was a true manifestation of her dream unfolding. I am blessed and honoured to have the artist as my most inspiring friend and co-creation partner. Here are a few pictures from this amazing day where I could contribute with my old profession as a saleswoman put in a new context with my skill set & passion in aromatherapy.
