Earrings for the new year

2 Jan

Here is a brand new pair of earrings I made for the new year.

 I hammered flat some brass wire, then I made two holes with my cute little hand-drill and added some small iolite rondelles.

I like my earrings light with simple lines and these are just perfect for me.

Another ring

23 Apr

Here is another ring I made in the past days. I used some copper wire and what I think is a faceted hematite squared bead. But I’m not sure about this… I mean, I’m not sure whether it is an hematite stone or what….

Anyway, I think the result is nice but I still have to improve my skills….

I’ve been thinking on how to make a ring for a while now, and I finally decided to experiment. Here is the result. At the beginning it wasn’t ment to be for my pinky but after a couple of changes of mind, it became a bit small… 😉

Compass bracelet

28 Aug

I’ve read somewhere in the web that Iolite stone was used in past times by mariners as a compass to guide their way to sea… apparently they noted that it would show different hues of blue-violet when held to the northern and southern skies. I didn’t know this before making this bracelet, but I think now it is a kind of a sign, as I’m leaving for a journey very soon… So, I’m definitely bringing this bracelet with me!

Along with iolite stone chips I used some bright light blue glass beads.

I’ve just realised that my subconscious probably guided me in making this bracelet since it has the colours of the sea I’m about to sail… (see here)

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?)….
