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.

Bracelets always come in threes

Here is the third bracelet of this new collection. Again it is made with macramè technique with black string, small gold coloured beads and coral larger beads.

Yesterday, my mum showed me some old trinkets that belonged to my granny and that my father found out somewhere… There were quite few interesting things and one of them was a necklace made with red beads. I’m not sure what kind of material these beads are made of, but they might well be even coral beads.

Anyway, as soon as I saw the necklace I realised that the red beads would have matched perfectly a black carved stone that I bought some time ago, and I decided to make a bracelet. Here is the result…. the black carved “stone” has a Chinese feel too.

I like the idea that I’m wearing my granny’s beads… and there’s still plenty of them for other projects too!
