This autumn started with a challenge for me. I was asked to create a jewellery set for a bride using wire and the weaving technique.
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.
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.
Step by step I developed my work from a bi dimension piece to a volume:
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.
I am very happy with the result, and i’d like to share my work to you.
The earrings are simple, woven alike to suit the set.
