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.

Spiral-embroidered-collar-th

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.

Phoenix

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. 

Roses-embrace-tapestry

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.

 

have a beautiful day!

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.

 

Mandala embroidery


I was asked to embroider a special green sash for a traditional wedding and i was face to an interesting challenge: to use only one color of beads.Green Embroidered Mandala Sash

I decided to design a Mandala starting from a point, going on around with circles and details around the

circles. Only one color does not give you many choices so i developed the design using different stitches.

I created a lights and shadows design helped by the way of sewing the beads.

 Green Embroidered Mandala Hairpin

The shinning beads attracting the light were sown normally but the ones creating the shadows were sown facing the surface of the embroidery.

I was very pleased of my design and my achieved embroidery.

I made two different Sashes, a cuff bracelet and a hairpin using the same pattern.

 

 

 

They are available on sale in the shop.
