5 years ago i started my Jewellery business.

Blue-woven-snails-necklace-th

First i worked beaded and bead tapestries woven on loom. I created my own patterns and designs for earrings, necklaces an bracelets or nice Home designs hangings.

 

I enlarged my skills in wire weaving and wrapping developing “cold” collection in silver and bras wire. 

My last year work was “embellished” with embroidery and gold embroidery.

Spiral-embroidered-collar-th

I am very found of these techniques as they are a very rich and elegant look.

As additional techniques  I enjoy tatting and kumihito touches to create a unique effect on the piece I design.

I nice addition for a wire work is a chainmail detail.

Unfortunately, after 5 years i am not in position of enjoying many clients.

I need a lot of time to manage my on line shop, to make photos of my work and to promote it. i find hard to split myself in order to have enough time for working and to promote.

I think it is a good idea to look for a collaboration. i am looking for an agent, for a person interested in selling jewellery, in promoting items for a specific, personalised target.

I tried selling in real shops but the commercial addition was more than 150% for the shop and obviously nobody was interested to pay so much. 

Roses-embrace-tapestry

I tried an integrated internet promoting but the feedback was poor.

I feel a real person is more adequate to feel , love and talk about real products.

If you are interested or have any ideas in order to help my in my quest you are more than welcome to reply to my post.

share your experience and success to let me too to follow your good steps.

 

have a beautiful day!

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.

3 tatted layers necklace


 

I designed a 3 layers tatted necklace.

First layer, the dark blue is tatted using only fiber, the second one is connected by AB indigo seed beads. I used a turquoise fiber.

The last one is filigree tatted using a light blue and seed beads.

The laces are tatted and the necklace is adjustable. Very light and elegant.

Purple silk filigree tatting earrings


 

I was fascinated when I first sow the tatting jewellery and

 

I order a beautiful book from the great teacher Nina Libin.

I studied and worked the technique so finally, after several blouses edges and brooches I accomplished a real filigree piece.

 

I equally love the simple thread tatting and the beaded tatting style, they taught me another way of weaving off the loom.

 

 

Thank you!

 

 

Lacing beading necklace


 

I was very found of lacing style all my youth and I considered the ones are working it “un reachable” in skills and art.

Few month ago a theme of a challenge in Etsy Beadweaver’s forum was “Nautical” inspiration.

I chose to create “The Birth of Venus” using the lacing beading technique.

Using different tones of blue, green, turquoise and white i created the foam and the weaves of the sea.

As a pendant i used a shell where from the goodness is going to be born.

Each part of the lacing is a small flower around a white bead of coral.

I work for days to design and bead this necklace but i am very found with the result.

Available for selling in the shop.

 

Mandala embroidery


I was asked to embroider a special green sash for a traditional wedding and i was face to an interesting challenge: to use only one color of beads.Green Embroidered Mandala Sash

I decided to design a Mandala starting from a point, going on around with circles and details around the

circles. Only one color does not give you many choices so i developed the design using different stitches.

I created a lights and shadows design helped by the way of sewing the beads.

 Green Embroidered Mandala Hairpin

The shinning beads attracting the light were sown normally but the ones creating the shadows were sown facing the surface of the embroidery.

I was very pleased of my design and my achieved embroidery.

I made two different Sashes, a cuff bracelet and a hairpin using the same pattern.

 

 

 

They are available on sale in the shop.

I made a lace beading design for the May Etsy Bearweaver’s challange. The theme was “nautical” so i thought of sea and weaves and…Venus, the goddess. I made a masterpiece from a shell laced in different beads – sea colors – the shell from where the goddess is going to appear. The weaves of the sea are in a degrade range of blues. The foam around the shell is white and then deep in the sea the colors go from turquoise to light green to dark green and dark blue.
The lace is done around white beads of coral.

Wedding time with pearls and silver


I was asked few days ago to design some bride accessories for her wedding.

Few month ago she bought one of my bracelet creation and wanted more thinner ones to have a set.

I created earrings and a hair net woven with silver wire and pearls

Rose hips grows in chain mail jewelry


I designed a simple causal bright set using chain mail and coral beads.

The bracelet is full of beads hanging from the outside of the weave.

I found very decorative to embellish it with beads.

I  like to use the simple weave of chain mail in a pyramidal shape.

This time I chose to use red  coral beads matches with red leather for the pendant.

The earrings are smaller but in the same design.

Enjoy looking or buying them.
