Wedding collar


sketch1This autumn started with a challenge for me. I was asked to create a jewellery set for a bride using wire and the weaving technique.Colan1

Obviously, I was very happy to unleash my creativity.

 
I made a collar, a tiara and earring accordingly to the bride costume and wedding theme.sketch 2
First I spent 2-3 days drawing till I refined my sketches.

I came with this:

When I started weaving some changes appeared: I added some small beads to enrich to weaving and 2 wire colours to underline the cloth design and texture.

DSC_7652Step by step I developed my work from a bi dimension piece to a volume:
tiara

Tiara is a curved woven piece like a neck ruffle.

 

 

The collar is a simple, around the neck piece to underline the feminine traits and the bride beauty.choker3

Looking for an Agent!

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!

Green embroidered maze sash


I created this embroidered sash for March challenge from Etsy Beadweavers Team. The theme was “Destination”.
I took it symbolic imaging a spiritual path of a maze. The maze symbolistic is well known so I embrace it happily. You start from one side of the maze looking for the right path, twisting and going round thus in the end to exit the opposite side, full of knowledge and experience. In my design the correct path is underlined using larger beads sown in a different way than the wrong path or the green bushes. I used my favorite shape of spiral and color of green Miyuki seed beads for the bushes walls, the sandy Miyuki seed beads are used to create the false paths and the golden large seed beads show the right path. The embroidery is designed to be worn as a sash. It is attached on a width free silk ribbon. It is possible to be worn at a wedding, or a similar special event. It comes over the waist and is knotted in the back in a bow or a simple nice knot.
Dimension: 16 x 13 cm. 16 hours work.

Materials used: Miyuki seed beads, silk ribbon

Ammonites or jewelry from the sea


I love spirals, ammonites, sea life and its colors.

I propose you to discover those beauties in my jewelry work.

I encased some ammonites in beaded work as pendant:

The embroidery is the art of painting with beads. I created a necklace for launching my website and I was very happy with the result.I used the spiral theme over and over in the design- using many colors from dark to light – as a playful dance of life.

The spiral design is beautiful used in wire woven style as an embellishment of stone or beads.

Here you are one of my necklaces created in wire techniques  – coiled, shaped, wrapped and woven.

I am very found of Kumihito technique and I worked with threads traditional patterns. I tried it using wire instead of threads and I design a braided “tube” shaped forward into a double spiral bracelet.
