Tapestry inspiration


First tool I acquired when I started my jewelry carrier was a Mirrix loom.

A small vertical loom, the traditional design for weaving tapestries.

I wove first with threads and I learnt some basic techniques which I found very useful to develop in my further work with wire.

 

 

 

 

 

The second step in my loom discovery was weaving with beads.

I tried on my own designs plying with colors and shapes as in a mosaic work.

 

The third step I made was to weave with beads on the loom but

according a necklace pattern. this is most difficult because all the threads have to be woven into the work according to the pattern or be used for fringes in the lower part of the jewelry.

I chose an orange brown palette of colors and some items playing with the sun and the brightness of the nature. I used woolen threads for the thee tapestry, the movement of the children against a geometric background, the greek style inspiration of the necklace speaks about geometrical elegance. I hope you like them!

Tradition here and there


In the down of the first day of the year, the young peasants cross the villages wishing and singing for bearings and health.

they are dressed in the their traditional clothes and they carry a whip to hit the earth for good crops and a “bunch of flowers” called Sorcova. The flowers are paper made and are very colorful. They sing wishes songs and bless the audience with the flowers. It is a good fortune sign to have a Sorcova in house and to received the waits.

I wanted to make myself such a Sorcova and I used folding paper techniques to create it. As I am in love with Origami art from  my childhood I used it to create my flowers. I made them in this Japanesse way and I attached them on a wooden stick as they  are in Romania. Here you are my original mixed cultures Sorcova. I hope you like it.
