Chain and Beads Collection

3 Nov

With my latest bracelet I inaugurated a new collection called “Chain and Beads”… here is another bracelet I made this past weekend. It is made with beads and two different sizes of chains.I also added a pink flower-shaped stone bead at the center to give it a girlie twist.

I think it has a strong visual impact….

Too easy

10 Jun

Here is my latest bracelet addition: a pale blue string with charms…. this kind of bracelet has become very popular here lately, and it is far too easy to make. You just need a string and some charms with big hole and you’ve already done. You can add as many charms as you want and the string can be as long as you wish. You can even turn it into a necklace.

Anyway, here my new bracelet is flanked on the left by a “Chan-luu” I made some time ago, and on the right by a “Gin-ki” bracelet I bought recently…

Birthday gift

17 Apr

So, today is my birthday and every year I try to take this day off from work to avoid stress and have a relaxing day all for myself.

And today I used my very well deserved free time for making myself a birthday gift.  🙂

I had a small piece of light pink 50% viscose/50% cotton fabric with a kind of beehive weaving that I cut from the sleeves of a t-shirt because they were too long, and I wanted to do something out of it for a very long time.

I actually never wore the t-shirt, but I think I’m going to wear this bracelet…

I added some charms: an owl to make me wiser (I really need it despite my growing age…), a little rabbit with the word “fuku engraved on it (which stands for blessing, fortune, luck, wealth… you choose!), a little bell to protect from bad spirits (you never have enough protection!), and  a pink glass bead (for a girly touch…).

I quite like it and I think I’m going to wear it pretty often… despite the noise from the bell… 🙂  ..or maybe because of it. 😀

Christmas collection 2: mother and daughter

2 Jan

Here are some other Xmas gifts I made for my friend Paola and her 10 years old daughter Marta. The mother’s gift is a parure of bracelet and earings. The bracelet is made with the same technic as those in my previous post, with golden wire, half-crystals pale pink beads and an oval jade stone. The earings are made with green jade stone and pink beads too.

The daughter’s gift is also a parure of bracelet and earings, but in this one we have a combination of a black plastic rose with fuchsia pearls and pink glass beads on a elastic string and a little chain with charms. The earings are also made with the same materials.

Of stars and a heart

25 Sep

What can I do? I really like this macramè processing techinque! So here is my brand new green macramè bracelet with two rings and some charms in the shape of two glass stars of different colours and a little black heart.

Perhaps it has a hidden meaning, something that never came to my mind while making it… 2 different stars = 2 different souls / and 1 shared heart…. plus, in Italy we say that green is the colour of hope…. I wonder what I was thinking about when making it?!? 🙂 Yep, precisely…

Two stars and one heart
