Sunday earrings

9 Nov

I have been thinking for a while to make these earrings and finally yesterday I scraped together all my energies (Autumn is always such a difficult time of the year for me that I have some bear helix in my DNA) and here they are.
They are made of hammered wire and some coloured jade beads. Very easy. I think I might make a bracelet or a necklace to match with them….

February stone

6 Feb

I’ve read somewhere that February birthstone is Amethyst so I decided to make a bracelet with the so called “rosary technique” using 4 mm Amethyst beads and a larger pink quartz. I have already made some bracelets like these before… you can see them here.

Summer Chan-luu

22 Jul

As I’ve been away for a couple of days in the mountains for a short break I brought some “work” with me and made this “Summer” Chan-Luu bracelet with 4mm green and red/pink agate beads and natural leather string.

I quite fancy the button…

Pink jade Chan-luu

1 Jul

Two weekends ago I went for a short break in Umbria with my friend Paola‘s family and friends and we were (Paola and I) supposed to carve out some time for ourselves to brush up on the Chan-luu tecnique and make a new bracelet.

Of course we didn’t have time to do so, but since I had all the material ready I decided to make one on my own.

I used some golden/bronze leather string along with pink Jade multifaceted 4 mm beads and gold plated glazed beads. I also modified the tecnique a bit compared to my first Chan-luu. Instead of starting with a loop (the button hole), I begun with introducing the button first. While I left some string unused in the end so to have an adjustable locking.

I think it works better!

Christmas collection 2: mother and daughter

2 Jan

Here are some other Xmas gifts I made for my friend Paola and her 10 years old daughter Marta. The mother’s gift is a parure of bracelet and earings. The bracelet is made with the same technic as those in my previous post, with golden wire, half-crystals pale pink beads and an oval jade stone. The earings are made with green jade stone and pink beads too.

The daughter’s gift is also a parure of bracelet and earings, but in this one we have a combination of a black plastic rose with fuchsia pearls and pink glass beads on a elastic string and a little chain with charms. The earings are also made with the same materials.

Pink Shamballa

27 Nov

Some time ago I bought some pink/fuchsia silk cord with the idea to make a Shamballa bracelet with it. Finally I have found some gold beads with a large hole that looked like they could match well with the string. And here is the result. I bit unusual, but I like it. Moreover I realized that working with silk string is a lot easier than using waxed cotton cord.

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! 🙂

Macramè attempt

3 Sep

I’ve been very active lately, making something new at least once a day. So here is my very first attempt at macramè bracelet. I made it following this very useful tutorial. It has been easier than I thought. I only found a bit difficult to finish the knots because the needle didn’t slip through the tight knots very easily.

Despite it doesn’t look as stylish as the ones in the tutorial I’m quite satisfied with the result.
