Rainbow necklace

2 May

This collar necklace is made mainly with 6mm dyed jade beads, a “Zama” golden spacer and brass wire.

It is a custom made order for a friend’s sister who saw something similar and asked if I could make a replica. Thankfully, since I am a fan of tiny beads I had plenty of colourful stones to use.

Of course it differs from the original basically because it’s not easy to find the exact raw materials but it’s as similar as possible, and most of all, it has been appreciated by the recipient. 🙂

Gloomy mood

12 Jul

When I’m in a bad mood I usually cheer up playing tennis. But lately I haven’t been able to play due to a knee problem, so my level of gloominess is at the top.

To keep it under control I try to direct my (negative) energy into something creative….. this is how I produced this pair of earings and bracelet with golden chain, garnet beads and recycled pearls from an old pair of earings that I’ve never worn.

It took me quite a while to finish it because since I didn’t have a golden chain, I had to make it myself using single ringlets. Not too bad a result for a gloomy day.

Onyx and glass

31 Aug

Here is another of my creations. It is made with onyx and some glass beads. I particularly like it because it is the first bracelet that I made using a bit of creativity. I also really like the colour mix. What do you think? The smaller glass beads within the onyx ones are actually more whitish than how they look in the photo.
