Solitary Christmas gift

27 Dec

In the past few years, for Christmas, I was used to make myself most of the presents for my friends, but this year I decided otherwise.

Actually, the only gift I decided to make for 2016 is this necklace for my friend Simona….

It’s simple to make but it has quite a visual impact. 😉

It is made with a cultivated pearl, two crystals, an amazonite stone and a decorated brass connector.

Bracelet or necklace

10 Apr

Here is a necklace that is long enough to be also used as a bracelet. The brass component is made by me. I used a black chain and a pearl to contrast the golden brass.

I’m in a wire frenzy! Here is another necklace I made for myself, baring my name. The clasp is also made by me. 🙂

Copper

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. 😉

Heart bracelet

3 Mar

Here’a a little bracelet I made during the weekend. Easy and quick it is made with a silver heart shaped pendant, a couple of cultivated pearls, pink glass beads and purple agate beads.

I really like the heart shaped pendant and since I have some others left, I’m planning to make quite few things with them….

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.

Starfish bracelet

Here is a very Summer-like bracelet I made with a red resin starfish, five cultured pearls, and two unidentified turquoise-blue stones (perhaps amazonite?)….

Here is another gift I made for a colleague and friend for Christmas. Apparently she enjoyed it very much and she was already wearing it. I must say that I liked it too and I actually made one for myself as well. 😉

It is made with upcycled parts of a necklace that was pretty awful. I think that as a bracelet they definitely look better and the pearl gives it an extra final touch. 🙂
