Another birthday gift

24 Feb

This necklace is a birthday gift for a friend. I used gold tinted chain and rosary style chain made with Chalcedony chips. I added a gold spacer and a pearl as a pendant and I interspersed the chains with red ruby agate beads.

You are Gold!

22 Feb

I have recently been asked to make a necklace for a lady who loves flashy accessories. I have a totally different style so it was a bit difficult to find a reasonable compromise. I also find  it difficult to mix and match the right stones, especially the big ones, but this time I think the result is quite nice.

I used some black chrystal and glass beads of different shapes and dimensions, some black and white tinted jade beads and few light blue oval agate beads. And, of course, plenty of gold toned spacers.

PS the stamped tag is also made by me…. (see a previous post here).

Earrings for me

20 Feb

Just a couple of cute earrings that I made for myself. I don’t like big flashy earrings and I always prefer a simple design. These are made with a white glass bead, two golden brass disks, a purple chrystal and, of coruse, some brass wire.

Lazyness

19 Jan

In this past year, 2017, I have been terribly lazy. The result is that I didn’t make much and I haven’t updated this blog in more than 365 days! So, first of all I must apologize for my lazyness.

Then, I must confess that I have mainly been using my instagram account to share some of my creations, basically because it’s so easy to upload photos there. This led me to neglect my good old blog. Shame on me.

I’ll try to catch up now with some items I made during last year.

Here is the first one: a cat pendant made with hammered brass and a crystal bead.

Chain and Beads Collection

3 Nov

With my latest bracelet I inaugurated a new collection called “Chain and Beads”… here is another bracelet I made this past weekend. It is made with beads and two different sizes of chains.I also added a pink flower-shaped stone bead at the center to give it a girlie twist.

I think it has a strong visual impact….
