Last Christmas Earrings #1

5 Feb

Here is a pair of earrings I made for a friend as Christmas gift. The box is also made by me with recycled cardboard, some washi tape and a self-printed sticker with my personal handmade stamp on it.

[Copper wire, tinted jade and crystals]

Experimenting

29 Jan

In my incessant research of learning new technique I stumbled upon one which involves, once again, wire and beads. There was this pin coming up all the times on my Pinterest and I decided to give it a try. My result is far from being as nice as the one on Pinterest but this was just a first attempt….

[Light blue bugle glass seed beads, copper wire and cultivated pearls.]

Earrings for a birthday

9 Jan

I recently made this pair of earrings for a friend’s birthday. I really like this style and I may think to make a whole collection out of it…. 

Again, this is hammered brass, which this time I decorated piercing some holes, with cultivated pearls.

I also made good use (or at least I think so), of the brand new stamp I recently carved. I’m quite proud of the whole thing. 😄

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.

A Christmas necklace

20 Dec

For this Christmas I have been asked, by my longtime friend and only recurring customer Simona, to make a necklace that she’ll give as a gift.

I searched the web for some inspiration and, in accordance with my friend, I came up with this one….

Brass and turquoise crystals are the raw material.

Not a choker, not a long necklace.

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….

Bracelet for two

22 Jan

I made this bracelet for my friend Paola’s daughter, Marta, for Christmas, but by magic it ended up un Paola’s wrist!

I used Corean jade cubic beads and double elastic thread. To cover the knots I used some pink wire.

A birthday gift

31 Jul

Here is the necklace I made for my friend Paola’s birthday. Since she expressed her admiration for this necklace here, I decided to make one especially for her. I didn’t have enough blue glass beads so I used green glass beads of the same shape instead.
