Golden necklace

3 Apr

Here is a long necklace I made on request from a friend. It was a Christmas gift for someone who likes showy ornaments…. It was a bit difficult for me because I normally like smaller and more delicate items but in the end I think this is an agreeable compromise.

Made of semi precious stones (tinted jade, turquoise) and cultivated pearl, along with brass chain and “zamak” spacers. The packaging is also handmade.

Lazyness

19 Jan

In this past year, 2017, I have been terribly lazy. The result is that I didn’t make much and I haven’t updated this blog in more than 365 days! So, first of all I must apologize for my lazyness.

Then, I must confess that I have mainly been using my instagram account to share some of my creations, basically because it’s so easy to upload photos there. This led me to neglect my good old blog. Shame on me.

I’ll try to catch up now with some items I made during last year.

Here is the first one: a cat pendant made with hammered brass and a crystal bead.

Solitary Christmas gift

27 Dec

In the past few years, for Christmas, I was used to make myself most of the presents for my friends, but this year I decided otherwise.

Actually, the only gift I decided to make for 2016 is this necklace for my friend Simona….

It’s simple to make but it has quite a visual impact. 😉

It is made with a cultivated pearl, two crystals, an amazonite stone and a decorated brass connector.

Good marks bracelet

Here is a brass wire bracelet I made for Marta, Paola‘s daughter: she’s has been very good at school this year  too so I thought she deserved a little gift. 😉

Bracelet or necklace

10 Apr

Here is a necklace that is long enough to be also used as a bracelet. The brass component is made by me. I used a black chain and a pearl to contrast the golden brass.

I’ve been working with wire this past weekend… here are the results of some exercises… btw, if you’re wondering what “Fiore” means, well… that’s my name. 😉
