I am found of the Victorian age and I find an excellent challenge to design this “lace” necklace. I beaded a lace base and I embellished it with silk ribbon. The pendant is beaded encasing a shell coin, embellished with blue crystals, The pendant has two sides and can be worn both sides. One is more embellished with crystals, the other has an star beaded ornament. The necklace is a choker style, to be worn aground the neck. The ribbon lace make it adjustable.
8 working hours.
Materials used: shell coin, blue- silver plated crystals, Miyuki seed beads, silk ribbon.
Where to buy: Blue victorian purity necklace
I designed this pendant using different techniques of working the wire: coiling, shaping, weaving, wrapping and decorating with metal elements.
I made it in a harp shape embellished with beads reminding of the music sounds at each movement of the body. The pendant is light and its dimensions are 11×14 cm. The chain is included. I used only copper material for this pendant.

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.

I started this design around a Venice glass in a leaf shape. I started drawing spirals linked to its case. AS i was working i decorated each spiral in a different way and shape it in a sophisticated amphora. The wire weaving is done using simple coiling around one wire or around 2 linked wires creating a new design band. One of the bands are decorated with metal beads.
I let the wire down when i felt i finish the pendant. it has n amphora shape for the Cala lilt flowers from the focal.
I used silver plated wire and beads and a large Venice glass bead (2.5 x 5cm).
Dimension of the pendant: 19x 14 cm. Light.
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.
I challenged myself using different types of tatting technique and i embroidered them to create this gorgeous elegant bird 🙂
