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.

The ring

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… 😉

February stone

6 Feb

I’ve read somewhere that February birthstone is Amethyst so I decided to make a bracelet with the so called “rosary technique” using 4 mm Amethyst beads and a larger pink quartz. I have already made some bracelets like these before… you can see them here.

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! 🙂

Birthday gift

25 Jun

Here is a necklace I made for my friend Simona’s birthday.  Some time ago she expressed her admiration for one of my older work that you can see here. So I thought to make a similar one for her birthday.

I used blue crystals, red agate, amethyst, Korean jade, smoked crystal and red crystal.

Well, I thought that something was missing in my previous project… that’s why I decided to add a bracelet…

With this new project I’m back to beding. Once again the inpsiration comes from a lovely necklace that saw in the window of one of my favourite shop in Milan city center. It was far too expensive for my pocket, so I reproduced it obviously with some changes mainly due to different material. For this necklace and earings I used some golden wire along with amethyst, purple agate, orange cat’s eye and crackle glass beads. The final result is quite far from the original but I’m pretty satisfied anyway. I particularly like how the earings came out.

A necklace for my pocket

16 Jan

Here is another outcome of my shopping spree: a long necklace with matching earings. I’m particularly happy with the result because it is bright and coloured. I actually made my own version of a necklace that I saw in a shop window and that was far too expensive for my pocket. It is made with blue crystals, red agate, amethyst, peridot, smoked crystal and red crystal.
