Embroidery my special way of painting


In my childhood i used to paint using the magic of water to create smooth zones of color or adding more paint in the strong emotional area of the painting.

I started bead embroidery last year and i used the same magic effect of using points or spot to increase or decrease the emotional value of the work.

Very important in embroidery work is the feeling that piece of art send to your hart. The visual force is very important. using large beads you get a calm sensation but crowding many seed beads in a small spot attract the eye and interest.

I try to alternate these zones in order to create emotional designs.

I invite you to admire and comment on my work.

Sea God Necklace


 

In the summer time I am filled with images of sea waves and shells on the warm sand.

These feelings stimulate my creativity and so I created this Sea God design.

I used shells and Swarovski Crystals encased in embroidery.

The spirals and crowded waves alternate with simple embroidery creating “breathing spaces”.This necklace is worn around the neck as a collar, the toggle is silver plated and the inside is neutral felt, soft and nice on the skin.

I worked on it for two week more than eight hours per day, but I hope you enjoy the result as much as I do.

38 hours work.

Materials used: shells and Swarovski Crystals, Miyuki seed beads, silver plated toggle, felt for backside.

NOTE: Order to make it for you.

 

Cala lily amphora pendant wirework


I started this design around a Venice glass in a leaf shape. I started drawing spirals linked to its case. AS i was working i decorated each spiral in a different way and shape it in a sophisticated amphora. The wire weaving is done using simple coiling around one wire or around 2 linked wires creating a new design band. One of the bands are decorated with metal beads.
I let the wire down when i felt i finish the pendant. it has n amphora shape for the Cala lilt flowers from the focal.
I used silver plated wire and beads and a large Venice glass bead (2.5 x 5cm).
Dimension of the pendant: 19x 14 cm. Light.
