Wedding collar


sketch1This autumn started with a challenge for me. I was asked to create a jewellery set for a bride using wire and the weaving technique.Colan1

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.sketch 2
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.

DSC_7652Step by step I developed my work from a bi dimension piece to a volume:
tiara

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.choker3

Looking for an Agent!

5 years ago i started my Jewellery business.

Blue-woven-snails-necklace-th

First i worked beaded and bead tapestries woven on loom. I created my own patterns and designs for earrings, necklaces an bracelets or nice Home designs hangings.

 

I enlarged my skills in wire weaving and wrapping developing “cold” collection in silver and bras wire. 

My last year work was “embellished” with embroidery and gold embroidery.

I am very found of these techniques as they are a very rich and elegant look.

As additional techniques  I enjoy tatting and kumihito touches to create a unique effect on the piece I design.

I nice addition for a wire work is a chainmail detail.

Unfortunately, after 5 years i am not in position of enjoying many clients.

I need a lot of time to manage my on line shop, to make photos of my work and to promote it. i find hard to split myself in order to have enough time for working and to promote.

I think it is a good idea to look for a collaboration. i am looking for an agent, for a person interested in selling jewellery, in promoting items for a specific, personalised target.

I tried selling in real shops but the commercial addition was more than 150% for the shop and obviously nobody was interested to pay so much.

I tried an integrated internet promoting but the feedback was poor.

I feel a real person is more adequate to feel , love and talk about real products.

If you are interested or have any ideas in order to help my in my quest you are more than welcome to reply to my post.

share your experience and success to let me too to follow your good steps.

Elven-gift-for-winter-queen1

I started the bracelet playing with the fan motif.

Elven-gift-for-winter-queen

I made severals pieces and I assembled together.

Suddenly i realized what a beautiful piece of elf could be!

My drawing became a sketch and finally i wove the entire “metal lace” adding a ring support.

The bracelet is in the indian style as a sleeve over the hand linked with the middle finger due to a simple flower ring, included in the pattern.

Lacing beading necklace


 

I was very found of lacing style all my youth and I considered the ones are working it “un reachable” in skills and art.

Few month ago a theme of a challenge in Etsy Beadweaver’s forum was “Nautical” inspiration.

I chose to create “The Birth of Venus” using the lacing beading technique.

Using different tones of blue, green, turquoise and white i created the foam and the weaves of the sea.

As a pendant i used a shell where from the goodness is going to be born.

Each part of the lacing is a small flower around a white bead of coral.

I work for days to design and bead this necklace but i am very found with the result.

Available for selling in the shop.
