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

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.
