Here is the third bracelet of this new collection. Again it is made with macramè technique with black string, small gold coloured beads and coral larger beads.
Again string, fuchsia glass and gold coloured beads, plus some little gold bells…. a bit noisy but cute.
I have been very lazy this Summer but at least I sometimes found the inspiration – and the strenght – to make something. This is how I came up with this bracelet.
It is made with gold painted beads and light blue glass beads and black cotton string. It was quite easy and I wish I had more beads with larger holes to make other bracelets… or a thinner string….
I didn’t produce much in this past few weeks but at least I made this tote-bag for my friend Paola‘s daughter Marta. Last week it was Marta’s 13th birthday and her mother told me that she needed a large bag so…. the obvious present. Since she is a Star, I decided to use a star printed fabric. This canvas is also waterproof, which is handy because, despite the light coulour, it is easy to clean.
As I had some fabric left I also made her a little matching pouch for her lipstick or make-up. ;-)
The tutorial is from the lovely THE PURL BEE website and you can find it here.
I have been invited to a wedding at the end of July (apparently people do still get married!!) so since I’ll be wearing a pair of sandals with a bit of gold in them I decided to make myself a matching purse with some Japanese “kimono” fabric I purchased recently at a stall in a Japanese “matsuri” held here in Milan last month….
It is small but capacious enough, and it is also reversible!
Here is another bracelet I made recently. It is made with green hemp strings, ceramic beads of various colours, and a silver fish shaped finding for a “Summer” accent.
