Too many fish in the sea

29 Apr

Here are a couple of little fish I made during last weekend.

I really don’t know what I’ll make of them. Perhaps they’ll become key-rings or something else.

At the moment they’re hanging from a knob…

During Easter weekend I made this little chap here: it was supposed to be a terrier-like keyring but it turned out to be more like an aardvark!

Another ring

23 Apr

Here is another ring I made in the past days. I used some copper wire and what I think is a faceted hematite squared bead. But I’m not sure about this… I mean, I’m not sure whether it is an hematite stone or what….

Anyway, I think the result is nice but I still have to improve my skills….

The ring

14 Apr

I’ve been thinking on how to make a ring for a while now, and I finally decided to experiment. Here is the result. At the beginning it wasn’t ment to be for my pinky but after a couple of changes of mind, it became a bit small… 😉

Lovely doily

11 Apr

Here is a lovely doily I made recently. Actually I begun crocheting it few months ago, but then I came to a halt because I had a bit of a problem at deciphering the instructions…. after a while, with a clearer mind, I finally understood the enigma and here is the result….

BTW, thanks to Janette from The Green Dragonfly blog, for the tutorial that can be found here…. it was only due to my dumbness that it wasn’t completed earlier… 🙂

Bracelet or necklace

10 Apr

Here is a necklace that is long enough to be also used as a bracelet. The brass component is made by me. I used a black chain and a pearl to contrast the golden brass.

I’m in a wire frenzy! Here is another necklace I made for myself, baring my name. The clasp is also made by me. 🙂
