New shape

27 Jun

This is the new shape of a former bracelet.

A friend asked me to turn  her broken bracelet, which incidentally I purchased for her as birthday present about ten years ago, into a necklace.
I think it was a beautiful bracelet, but I am not sure  about it as a necklace….
This is the result…
I am not completely satisfied with it, but  there weren’t too many beads and I had to do with what I had. 😉

Sparkling bracelet

1 Feb

IMG_20160130_103929

I have been thinking for a while to make something like this bracelet and the chance came when I found the right size of chain at my local market last Friday.

So I made 9 strings using a silver coloured chain adding in between randomly few cultured freshwater pearls from an old damaged necklace of my Grandmother, amethyst beads and tinted jade beads and few matte white glass beads of different sizes.

I really like the result and I think I might add some other strings to make it even richer.

I am also thinking about how to develop it into a larger project……. We will see.

Last craft of 2015

4 Jan

Here is my last craft work for 2015: a necklace/bracelet that you can wear in many ways: as a long necklace, as a “2 rounds” necklace, as a chocker (3 rounds), or as a bracelet (multi-rounds!!!).

You choose. 🙂

BTW Happy New Year to all my (few) blog-followers. 🙂

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…. 😉

Just another summer bracelet

18 Aug

I have been very lazy this Summer but at least I sometimes found the inspiration – and the strenght –  to make something. This is how I came up with this bracelet.

It is made with gold painted beads and light blue glass beads and black cotton string. It was quite easy and I wish I had more beads with larger holes to make other bracelets… or a thinner string….

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.
