A gorgeous set I made a long while ago using AB crystals, beading wire, oval links and silver-plated chain, crimp beads, jewellery findings and pliers. I weaved the crystals in right-angle weave to create small cubes and used the crimp beads to hold them in place. The earrings have a ladder weave and end in a big loop.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.

Un precioso set de bisutería hecho con cristales con terminado Aurora Borealis, alambre para collares, cadena plateada con eslabones ovalados, terminaciones plateadas y tenazas para joyería. Entrelazé los cristales usando tejido en ángulo recto para crear pequeños cubos y use chafas para asegurarlos en su lugar. Los aretes tienen un tejido escalera y terminar en un lazo grande.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un lindo dia!

A special card I made using my handmade roses, punched and inked leaves, free papers and sentiment, peel-off borders, foam pads, stickles and alphabet letters.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I made the roses from long strips of handmade paper and ordinary paper that I glue together to get the same colour on both sides. I punched the leaves and inked them to add more texture and detail. I used  a PM card blank, free papers, sentiment, stamp, gems and ribbon.

Naranja Lively

This is the latest memo pad I cover with recycled papers, cards and free embellishments that came with a magazines ages ago. I covered it with self-adhesive clear plastic to make it more durable. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This a design I made before but I added a few more things this time like flowers, buttons, and a peel-off sparky border. I used an Anita's stamp, watercolours, stickles, brads, wire, jewellery pliers, flower embellishments, foam pads, vellum, permanent markers and handmade papers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Golden Oldies

This set is another one I made long ago but forgot to post as well - luckily I backed up my pictures! yay!
I used gold beading wire, glass and metallic-finish beads, and gun metal chain for the necklace. First I threaded the beads onto the beading wire and then crocheted. Next I  attached it to the chain to create more volume and dimension. I finished it off with a toggle clasp.
I made the ring using 0.8mm wire, the same beads and a round object instead of a mandrel (like glue stick) to create the shape.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Este set de bisuteria es otro que hice hace tiempo pero que me olvide de subir aqui - felizmente que guardé las fotos en un CD - yupui!
Para el collar usé cola de tigre/ alambre fino para collares dorado recubierto por plastico, cuentas de vidrio y metálicas, y cadena negra. Primero ensarté la cuentas en el alambre y luego hice cadena con crochet. El siguiente paso fue adherirlas a la cadena para darle mas volumen y dimensión. Lo terminé con un broche.
Hice el anillo con alambre de 0.8mm, las mismas cuentas y un objeto circular/redondo en vez de un medidor de anillos (como una goma en barra) para crear la forma.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un fin de semana genial!

De Pesca

I made this card for my husband's birthday last month. I stamped the image using brown Stazon and coloured it using watercolours pencils. I also used a glitter pen to highlight the fish fins. I matted and layered the image with black and green cardstock and then embossed it using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and  raised it using foam pads to create more dimension.  I die-cut the letters using the Olivia Alphabet set from CB and used free papers for the background; the greeting was also part of a different set of free papers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hice esta tarjeta para el cumpleaños de mi esposo el mes pasado. Estampé la imagen usando un tampón de Stazon y lo coloreé con lápices acuarelas. Tambien usé un lapicero con escarcha para resaltar las aletas del pez. Le puse capas a la imagen usando cartulina negra y verde y luego use un troquel/ folder de embossing de Cuttlebug para crear el repujado y lo levanté con foamis para darle mas dimensión. Corté las letras usando el alfabeto Olivia de Cuttlebug y use papeles que vinieron gratis con una revista para crear el fondo; el saludito tambien fue parte de otro set de papeles que vinieron gratis.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un lindo día!
