Green maze embroidered 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. 26 hours 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.

Colors and crystals


Hello, Today I want to share my most welcome bracelet for the last 2 weeks.

I used more the 100 pieces of Czech crystals – 8mm facetted and I crowded them around a chain. I got a very live full colorful and shine  bracelet.

This bracelet is nice to assort it with a classic skirt and coat but  it fit s great to a jeans and sweater.

Leave you to try it out!

Brown roses or between classical and casual


Hello. The week-end is approaching and the jewelry box wins a temporary most important place in your duties. Let’ open it together and see what we find today!

On my side of the world the sun is shinning today, it is quite warm and there is a good idea to have a walk in the part. In the evening is possible to meet some friends in a pub talking about the last skiing attempts (the snow is few this year here).

I propose you a fabric brooch small and discrete, barely covering the lapel. I used brown cotton fabric and light pink silk ribbon. It is part of a set will be use both in casual or classic outfits. The set composes a necklace , earrings, ring and brooch. On my opinion they could be worn together for a classic deux piece but for jeans and sweater outfits I’d use only the necklace and either the ring or the earrings. The brooch can stay on the lapel of the coat.

The flower design I created is between formal and modern. The brown stylized roses are more “artistic” than “sweet”and they give strong and firmness to the person wearing them.

I hope you enjoy!
