Heart bracelet

3 Mar

Here’a a little bracelet I made during the weekend. Easy and quick it is made with a silver heart shaped pendant, a couple of cultivated pearls, pink glass beads and purple agate beads.

I really like the heart shaped pendant and since I have some others left, I’m planning to make quite few things with them….

My style

20 Feb

This bracelet is definitely more my *style*, compared to the Chainmaille earings of my previous posts…. the “rosary technique” is always a favourite of mine. This bracelet is made with 3 strings of multicolor tinted agate stone beads, but I might as well decide to add few more….

Summer Chan-luu

22 Jul

As I’ve been away for a couple of days in the mountains for a short break I brought some “work” with me and made this “Summer” Chan-Luu bracelet with 4mm green and red/pink agate beads and natural leather string.

I quite fancy the button…

Wimbledon necklace

9 Jul

I had a very lazy weekend. So lazy that I was almost ashamed of myself.

So, in the end, I decided to be at least a bit productive, and while watching the Wimbledon Championship men’s final between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, I came out with this necklace made with baguette shaped amethyst and 6mm round agate beads and silver chain.

The purple colour remind a bit of Wimbledon… perhaps I should add some green too for a perfect… match! 🙂

For patience and protection

6 May

Last Saturday, Paola and I went to our local gemstones shop because they were presenting their “Summer Gem Collection”… and obviously we have been able to spend some money….

The Summer Gem Collection was amazing but far too pricey so I ended up with buying some agate and howlite with which I made a Summer necklace…. well, we still have to see some Summer here, actually! It has been raining since last March and we don’t see the end of it!

Anyway, here is my Summer necklace… I’m afraid the picture doesn’t make it justice. It is much nicer in real.

On another note, I read somewhere on the web that Howlite is a super-calming stone and many people use it to relieve stress of all kinds and teaches patience, moreover if you place a howlite stone in your pocket it will absorb your own anger… While Agate attracts strength and is a protection from bad dreams. It also protects from stress and energy drains… these extra features make it an ideal necklace for me! 😉
