Pink Quartz

17 Oct

What to do when you only have two quartz stones?

Mmmmm… I thought about it and since I really didn’t want to make just a pair of earings I decided to mix them with some glass beads of different colours and shapes and make a bracelet out of it. Here is the result paired with some earings too.

Last week, in the window of an expensive fashion jewellery shop in Milan city centre I saw a bracelet made with a glass bead and some silk string and I thought it didn’t look too difficult to duplicate… So here is the result.

This time I tried to give a new life to old beads again. I’ve been given these black beads by a colleague of mine. Unluckily they weren’t too many so I had to opt for a bracelet. They actually were enough for a double row bracelet with some silver decoration in between. The result is far better than I expected. 🙂

Yesterday evening, after a very enjoyable afternoon with my girl friends in which we made a macramè bracelet and we had a lovely jasmine tea with an equally lovely cake, I came up with these clusters earings made with jade stones and pink glass beads. I felt that, after having helped my friend Paola and her 10 years old daughter Marta, to make their first macramè bracelet, I also wanted to make something myself.

I’m not exactly satisfied with the result, and the technique is a bit rough too, but I wanted to try something new. I’m not sure what it is but perhaps it is the combination of jade and pink glass, that doesn’t work. Anyway, this is just a prototype, and the nice thing about all this is that if you’re not happy with the result you can always undo and re-make it for as many times as you wish! 🙂

If there’s anyone out there that, by chance, is reading this, please, tell me your opinion. I would really appreciate it. Thank you! 🙂

It looks like black but it is blue

These are some of my earlier works. Despite the dark glass beads may seem to be black they are actually a very dark blue.

Of stars and a heart

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…
