at a weihnachtsmarkt in vienna i came across an odd store selling rusty old tools – spanners, screwdrivers, drill-bits and ball-races. i thought it was some weird tradition thing i would have to look into, and kept walking with my spicy hot gluhwein in hand. i realised what i had almost missed when i saw some kid chewing on a big rusty bolt, and i went back and got myself a chocolate version of my favourite mechanical inspiration for designing jewellery. and the chocolate was even super tasty!
yay vienna – you are not always grump and gloom!
