By now, the jewels from mainland China’s artistic jeweller, have stepped into the halls of most prestigious art museums in western world.
In ‘Blue Anthurium’, Feng employed her ‘Pigment of Gem’, a special double rose-cutting of color gemstones, to shape the creation by iconic ‘PAINTERLY’ style, yet combined with the very original 'Floating Set’, to illustrate a sculptural painting, with the ethereal temperament as a recognition of the art jeweler’s work.
Pack nicotine alternatives
Smoking cessation isn’t a one-and-done thing; being out with friends—especially smokers—might exacerbate your cravings. Instead of giving in and asking for a smoke, tobacco-free alternatives can help tamp down those urges. Nicotine pouches are a great product for a night out. Most nicotine pouches come in cans, which allow users to experience nicotine satisfaction on the go. Another great option is nicotine patches, which have been around for decades as a quitting aid. Brands like Habitrol nicotine patches come with two or three-step programs over eight or twelve weeks, gradually lowering the nicotine dose after some time. all images ©
