A Christmas necklace

20 Dec

For this Christmas I have been asked, by my longtime friend and only recurring customer Simona, to make a necklace that she’ll give as a gift.

I searched the web for some inspiration and, in accordance with my friend, I came up with this one….

Brass and turquoise crystals are the raw material.

Not a choker, not a long necklace.

New shape

This is the new shape of a former bracelet.

A friend asked me to turn  her broken bracelet, which incidentally I purchased for her as birthday present about ten years ago, into a necklace.
I think it was a beautiful bracelet, but I am not sure  about it as a necklace….
This is the result…
I am not completely satisfied with it, but  there weren’t too many beads and I had to do with what I had. 😉

May Totoro be with you

18 Jan

Today I am posting two other attempts at “nail enameling” 😁.
I made these two  Ghibli themed pendants for two beautiful and very special fans of Totoro: my friend Michela’s daugthers Viola & Ester.

So now they can take the Spirit of the Forest always with them….

Totoro & Ji-Ji

I’ve been experimenting a lot lately. These two pendants, inspired by Studio Ghibi characters Totoro and Ji-Ji, are the results. Actually the process was quite easy: I have only printed the pictures, cut into shape and pasted on two oval cameo cabochon base pendants, and, since I didn’t have any suitable glass cabochon, I decided to coat them with… transparent nail varnish. I applied it several times. The result is quite nice. 🙂

Last craft of 2015

4 Jan

Here is my last craft work for 2015: a necklace/bracelet that you can wear in many ways: as a long necklace, as a “2 rounds” necklace, as a chocker (3 rounds), or as a bracelet (multi-rounds!!!).

You choose. 🙂

BTW Happy New Year to all my (few) blog-followers. 🙂

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.

Made to order

25 Sep

This crafty passion of mine is becoming a bit lucrative too… 😁
As a matter of fact this necklace here was ordered by a friend as a birthday present.
Obviously I made a special price for my friend, but the most important thing for me is that my work has been appreciated enough to place  me an order! 😄
Anyway it is made with blue crystal, Korean Jasper, amethyst, red crystal, red/orange agate and labradorite.

A gift

19 Jun

I made this necklace, which is a variation of this one here, as a gift for a friend’s birthday. It is made with hammered copper wire and glass beads…

Blue glass

Here’s a new necklace I made with some copper wire and light blue glass beads. I really like the contrast among the two colours.
I hammered and shaped the copper wire and added the beads. Very simple!

Yukio necklace

3 Jun

I was watching “The Wolverine” the other day when I saw one of the characters, Yukio, was wearing a necklace with a lovely pendant, and it came to my mind that I had a similar pendant that I used for this necklace here… but since I realised that I haven’t been wearing it that much, I decided that I could do a better use of that lovely pendant…
