Christmas purchase order 2

31 Dec

Here is another “made to order” gift. I have been asked to make it to match with a necklace that I made before….

As for the necklace I used blue crystal, Korean Jasper, amethyst, red crystal and red/orange agate.

Christmas purchase order

30 Dec

This year I didn’t only make gifts for myself to give to friends, but I’ve been ordered two pieces of my “jewelry” too!….

This is the first one: a cute necklace. The beads are yellow crystals, coral, howlite and jade (blue and yellow). It is long enough to wear it with two or even three rounds.

After my first “Christmas gifts post” here is my second creation which is of a different kind: a crocheted infinity scarf…

Two spins is the ideal….

 

2 rounds

… also one spin is acceptable.

No rounds

But I wouldn’t reccomend “no spins” at all….

Mother-daughters’ bracelets

21 Dec

Some time ago a friend of mine asked me to make some matching bracelets for her and her two young daughters, for Christmas. She wanted string-macramè bracelets with green beads for one daughter and blue beads for the other. The third bracelet, for herself, was to be a mix of the other two….

Anyway, apparently she wasn’t able to wait until Christmas to give the girls their bracelets, so I decided to post them now, since I won’t spoil anything…. 😉

A Christmas tree

7 Dec

When last year I adopted a kitty, I realized that a “regular” Christmas tree was a huge temptation for the playful feline, and some of my fragile and most  precious decorations went lost forever… 😥 So, this year I opted for something different…
I used some tree branches, a hacksaw and a string and here is the result…
