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!

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.

Chain mail flowers and clay


I tried out something new: right angle weave using byzantine chain mail technique.

I filled the squares with beautiful ocean color clay beads.

The red and white day is approaching. The day when most of people remember they love. I say we love everyday and remembering this makes us breathing, feeling, living. But Valentine’s day is a coutume so let’s keep it like this – a pretext to give and receive presents. I present you some of my jewelry work for this celebration mixing the specific colors with the valuable materials as Swarovski crystals, silver wire, Rivoli.

Chain mail flowers earrings or how to feel the roses scent


Hello,

Last evening I wanted to work some chain mail. Unfortunately my resources of silver plated jumper rings in a larger diameter – 7cm – was depleted. :D. I found some other kind of jumper rings, but thinner. As I was decided to work a chain mail jewelry, to design a new pattern I tried several issues. There is a petal chain mail technique  to get a nice flower as a small rose. As my jumper rings were thin I added several of them, increasing “the density” of the petals, so I got some nice plump buds, I linked with smaller but thicker jumper rings.

The earrings are simple linked design but I intend to create also a nice necklace for a set. I keep you posted 🙂

 

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!

Blue winter beaded earrings


Hello and Marry Christmas for all of you!

I hope you spent a nice Christmas time and you found many presents under the Christmas tree.

This year our tree is tall and thin, so we called it the “little ballerina” as those who are dancing on a music box. Usually our Christmas tree were rich in lower branches and looked old and impressive. This one looks young and “fresh” and dynamic. It brings a new feeling, something new, although this is an old tradition this time it happened something different, like  a “young generation” is leading the holiday .

I am admiring it shinning from its little lights clock and it really seems a new beginning, an announcement for the New Year Eve.

Inspired by its brightness I beaded a delicate earrings pair, a winter jewelry for the New Year Eve celebration.

Have a good time!
