Indian bracelet

12 Aug

Here is my latest bracelet. I actually copied it from a a colleague’s.  I used green crystal beads, silver toned wire, a chain and a heart shaped pendant support. Many thanks to Marina for modelling. 😀

Copper and hammer

1 Apr

I’m still working with copper wire and hammer….. this time I made some earrings…. I still have to work on my hammering skills!

Recently I’ve been actracted to copper wire, and when I found this lovely tutorial on how to make a Wire Heart Clasp, I decided to give it a try!

The nacklace and earings in the following photos are the results… I used thin copper wire and matte white round crystal beads to make a string with the rosary technique, then, with a thicker copper wire I made the heart shaped clasp and ring. I added a greyish/bluish faceted crystal roundel bead and a cultivated  fresh water nugget pearl for an extra accent.

I used the same materials for the earings except that I didn’t have the copper studs (and the wire used for the clasp was far too thick), so I made them out of two copper rings from this previous work… I straightened two rings and sanded one end and made a loop on the other…. et voilà!

…btw, I wear the necklace so that the lovely heart clasp is in the front. 😉

Gloomy days

7 Feb

In these gloomy and rainy days of Winter I felt the need for some light, that’s why I decided to make this Chan-luu bracelet with crystal beads, to brighten up my life.

Crystal choker

This is a choker I’ve been thinking about for quite a long time…. it is made with white crystals, cultured pearls and amethyst beads, and it is finished with a golden chain.

Crystal and filigree

18 Feb

This time we have a new entry: the filigree.

Actually I think it is also the first time for me to use a proper chain….

Anyway, here is my brand new creation: a crystal beads and filigree necklace. I saw a similar one in a shop in town the other day and I thought it was pretty easy to duplicate. Here’s the result.

Christmas collection

28 Dec

So, as Christmas has finally arrived and gone, at last I can publish some photos of my “Christmas Collection”…. the bracelets are made of golden wire, pale pink and black half crystals and various stones… as my skills improve I think I’ll be opting for golden plated wire since this simple golden coloured wire, I’m afraid, tends to oxidise….

Crystal Chan Luu

18 Oct

I’m still working on my Chan Luu technique, but I’m not completely satisfied with my skills yet. Anyway, at least I have finally realized what kind of beads are better for this type of work….

Today I’m posting the photos of a project that I particularly like: this is my first crystal beads project. The bracelet is composed of a chain of white crystal beads and another string of the same beads. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough beads left for a pair of hearings.

I think it looks pretty cool on a suntanned skin…
