Sparkling bracelet

1 Feb

IMG_20160130_103929

I have been thinking for a while to make something like this bracelet and the chance came when I found the right size of chain at my local market last Friday.

So I made 9 strings using a silver coloured chain adding in between randomly few cultured freshwater pearls from an old damaged necklace of my Grandmother, amethyst beads and tinted jade beads and few matte white glass beads of different sizes.

I really like the result and I think I might add some other strings to make it even richer.

I am also thinking about how to develop it into a larger project……. We will see.

Gloomy Monday bracelet

27 Oct

I know it’s been a while since my last post….  no excuses,  I just have been a bit lazy lately but finally last weekend I found new inspiration and I came up with this bracelet.
It is made with a silver chain, some silver beads and some coloured waxed cotton threads.
I also added a little kitty charm that could easily become my new trademark… another one!

I’m a bit hesitant to find my ultimate trademark….

Anyway, I needed some colours in this gloomy Autumn Monday, and here it is:

Chainmaille earings

19 Feb

Since I’ve been trying to get more accustomed with this Chainmaille technique, I decided to made this pair of earings. They’re made with silver jump rings and light blue glass beads. The effect is quite nice but I’m not sure whether I’m going to wear them myself because they are not exactly my “style“….

Recycling

9 Oct

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. 🙂
