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.

A Christmas necklace

20 Dec

For this Christmas I have been asked, by my longtime friend and only recurring customer Simona, to make a necklace that she’ll give as a gift.

I searched the web for some inspiration and, in accordance with my friend, I came up with this one….

Brass and turquoise crystals are the raw material.

Not a choker, not a long necklace.

Christmas purchase order

30 Dec

This year I didn’t only make gifts for myself to give to friends, but I’ve been ordered two pieces of my “jewelry” too!….

This is the first one: a cute necklace. The beads are yellow crystals, coral, howlite and jade (blue and yellow). It is long enough to wear it with two or even three rounds.

After my first “Christmas gifts post” here is my second creation which is of a different kind: a crocheted infinity scarf…

Two spins is the ideal….

 

2 rounds

… also one spin is acceptable.

No rounds

But I wouldn’t reccomend “no spins” at all….

First of all, Happy Holidays everyone.

Christmas Westies

30 Dec

The Christmas gift parade continues with these two plushes I made for my friends’ sons: the grey one, with button eyes, is for Paola‘s son Pietro, who is grown-up enough for not eating its eyes; while the white one is for another friend’s son, who is famous for eating… well, anything! In this case I opted for felted stitched eyes because I didn’t want to be held responsible for any accident!…. you never know!

Westies!

Christmas gift #1

29 Dec

I haven’t updated this blog recently because I’ve been busy with Christmas gifts and I couldn’t upload their photos *before* the very day, but now that all the presents are in the hands of their recipients I can finally do so.

Here is the first one I made: an earrings organizer for my friend Paola. I painted a picture frame and added some lace strings and a little ribbon rosebud on top. I also added some nylon fish wire at the top of the laces for extra support.

I really like how it came out, and I hope she likes it too. 🙂

Christmas efforts

8 Dec

So, as Christmas is approaching quickly I decided to make myself some gifts for my friends. Here are my latest efforts: a “kind of” clutch bag with a stitched sakura flower and a matching keyring.
