Pearls & Red Chips

Pearl Elegance


                                                                      Honey Bee

A selection of bracelets made with faux pearl, red chips and seed beads. The first one is not very intricate as it has elastic to fit snugly around the wrist. Some pearls were embellished with gold-plated caps. The 2nd and 3rd one were crocheted with fine wire and embellished with a few rows of seed beads.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Algunas perlas estan adornadas con tapas doradas estilo filigree. La 2da y 3era estan hechas a crochet con alambre fino y adornadas con unas cuantas filas de mostacillas.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un gran fin de semana!

Entwined Bracelet

RAW(Right Angle Weave) may seem very complex sometimes especially when it has been embellished. This bracelet hast a RAW base that I also embellished with a few more seed beads. I also use faux pearls, nylon thread, extension chain and a lobster catch. Most of the time I add a little extension chain to the jewellery pieces I sell as this makes them adjustable and they'd fit any wrist or neck.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!

One of my favourite necklaces -This necklace was also featured in the Designer's gallery from the magazine Creative Beads & Jewellery issue 7.
I used a mixture of seed and acrylic beads to make the necklace light as lots of glass beads would have made it really heavy. It still looks chunky but weightless. I crocheted most of this necklace using 0.4mm blue wire and added some wire wrapped eyepins to finish it off. I also handmade the clasp and jump rings.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Uno de mis collares favoritos - Este collar tambien salio publicado en la galeria de diseñadoras de la revista inglesa Creative Beads & Jewellery edición 7.
Use una mezcla de cuentas acrílicas y mostacillas para hacer este collar liviano ya que usando bastantes cuentas de vidrio lo hubiera hecho muy pesado. Se ve grueso pero no pesa mucho. Hice a crochet la mayor parte de este collar usando alambre azul de 0.4mm y le puse unas agujas con detalles de alambre amarrado para terminarlo. Tambien hice a mano el broche y las anillas.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un buen fin de semana!

Macramé Revival


Dessert Brown

A couple of bracelets using my favourite technique - Macramé. I love the look of if when done with wire. Looks can be deceiving as it's not as complex as it may seem and I only used one knot called Square knot (AKA Flat Knot) and a few variations. I also used a selection of glass beads, gold plated wire and gold plated findings. The 2 bracelets have an extension chain so they can be adjusted to any wrist.
Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by!

Single Flower

A card I've made lately. The main embellishment of this card (embroidered flower) actually came from a fancy top that I recycled as thought the embroidered flowers of the fabric would make a great card feature. I only added a few seed beads on the flower and leave to accent the shape & give it extra-sparkle.
I also used free papers, mirror card, brown paper, vellum, peel-offs and brads.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
