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. 🙂

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.

Chain and Beads Collection

3 Nov

With my latest bracelet I inaugurated a new collection called “Chain and Beads”… here is another bracelet I made this past weekend. It is made with beads and two different sizes of chains.I also added a pink flower-shaped stone bead at the center to give it a girlie twist.

I think it has a strong visual impact….

My style

This bracelet is definitely more my *style*, compared to the Chainmaille earings of my previous posts…. the “rosary technique” is always a favourite of mine. This bracelet is made with 3 strings of multicolor tinted agate stone beads, but I might as well decide to add few more….

Well, I thought that something was missing in my previous project… that’s why I decided to add a bracelet…

With this new project I’m back to beding. Once again the inpsiration comes from a lovely necklace that saw in the window of one of my favourite shop in Milan city center. It was far too expensive for my pocket, so I reproduced it obviously with some changes mainly due to different material. For this necklace and earings I used some golden wire along with amethyst, purple agate, orange cat’s eye and crackle glass beads. The final result is quite far from the original but I’m pretty satisfied anyway. I particularly like how the earings came out.

Korean jade

Last Friday me and my craft pal Paola  went to this new gems shop in her town. They were making sales and we took full advantage of it. 🙂

I basically bought stones and some crystals along with some findings. Here is the first outcome of my wild shopping: a necklace and matching earings made with Korean yellow jade and black crystals. 🙂

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.

Christmas collection

28 Dec

So, as Christmas has finally arrived and gone, at last I can publish some photos of my “Christmas Collection”…. the bracelets are made of golden wire, pale pink and black half crystals and various stones… as my skills improve I think I’ll be opting for golden plated wire since this simple golden coloured wire, I’m afraid, tends to oxidise….
