Wedding purse

23 Jul

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!

Under the Sea bracelet

9 Jul

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.

Purple idea

8 Jul

The weather is terribly hot here lately, and when I get back home from work I don’t feel like doing much else than lying on the sofa in front of the fan (yes I still have a fan!) watching Wimbledon on TV…. but I had an idea for a bracelet in my mind for a while and in the end I surrended to the curiosity to see it completed. Here it is, made of purple and light blue beads and golden wire.

Bestseller

24 Jun

Here is my one, and so far only, bestseller: the meal voucher holder!

A colleague asked me to make one for herself and accordingly to her personality and preferences, I came up with this… (I know, I should have ironed it before taking the photos…!)

Anyway, she said she might order other voucher-holders for Christmas as present for her colleagues…. we’ll see! :-)

Last week was my friend Simona’s birthday, and as the holiday season is approaching I made her this bag for going at the seaside. It is made mainly with Ikea fabric.
