Peki Style

My second knitted bracelet/cuff...hurray! This bracelet is really tactile; has loads of texture and will cheer up any outfit. I made it using a selection of glass and acrylic beads, small purple pearls and 0.2mm purple wire which I double-up to create a stronger knitted base.

Mi segunda pulsera/brazalete tejida a palillo...bravo! Este brazalete es bien táctil; tiene un montón de textura y   alegria a cualquier atuendo. Lo hice usando una selección de cuentas de vidrio y acrílicas, perlitas moradas y alambre de 0.2mm que lo use de a dos para crear una base mas fuerte tejida.

I also have to share with you my jewellery magazine publication of 2011. I had my first ever publication in 2009 for Creativity and did a few more projects for the magazine and website. This time around is for the UK magazine Creative Beads and Jewellery that is celebration its first year of publication. My jewellery is featuring in the current issue 13 and I'm really honored to be part of this anniversary publication.  You can see part on my necklace on the cover - mine it's the 2nd one with the big flowers although it looks like 1 necklace; there are actually 2. I'm over the moon with this publication!

Tambien les tengo que compartir mi publicación en otra revista este 2011. Mi joyeria fue publicada por primera vez en el 2009 en la revista Creativity e hice algunos proyectos mas para la revista y pagina web . En esta oportuniad es para la revista Inglesa Creative Beads & Jewellery (Cuentas Creativas y Joyería) que cumple 1 año de publicacion. Mi bisutería esta presentada en la edición actual número 13 y es un gran honor ser parte de esta edicion de aniversario. Pueden ver parte de mi collar en la portada - el mío es el 2do con las flores grandes aunque se ve como un solo collar en realidad hay 2. Estoy superfeliz con esta publicación.

The last of the ATCs

I made these a little while ago and finally get round to post them. As usual I used lots of bits & bobs I keep from larger projects like cards. I used free papers; scrapbooking papers, nestabilities, punched & die-cut flowers from a recycled gift card for the 1st ATC. The flowers turned out really sturdy - as good as chipboard ones and I was able to attach a few bead accents in the middle. The blue one actually uses the "negative" (left over) of a punched flower under a bright blue background. I added a couple of buttons in the centre.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hice estas ATCs hace un tiempo y finalmente los publico aqui. Como es de costumbre use los poquitos y pedazitos que guardo de proyectos de tarjetería mas grandes. Usé papeles que vinieron gratis, papeles para scrapbooking, los cortadores de paneles ondeados nestabilities, flores cortadas con un perforador de presión y de rodillo que fueron recicladas de una tarjeta de obsequio en la 1era ATC. Las flores salieron bien robustas - tan buenas como las de chipboard y pude sujetar unas cuentas para acentuar los centros. La azul en verdad usa el "negativo" (lo que quedo)de una flor perforada que esta debajo de un fondo azul brillante. Yo le puse un par de botones en el centro.
Gracias por visitarme y que tengan un dia genial!

I finished it off with a Tibetan pretty toggle clasp.
