Tangerine!



Summer ended, I just sold one of my last items that I made thinking of the heat of the sun, I called it Tangerine

 It's an orange necklace, actually it's burned orange: a tangerine necklace with silvered interspacers.
Take a bowl, put, two by two, all sorts of different synthetic beads in it ... "string" them  and decorate it all with a chain: there it is a necklace that will transform any dull outfit!

This contemporary style necklace comprises large orange and small yellow and silver colored acrylic beads with silver acrylic interspacers.

The length of the necklace is 88cm.

Oh, and did I mention I Love this song?

Working with fiber

Working with fiber, meeting new ideas...

I was at the haberdasher's for some needles...
On a rack I saw several skeins of colored ribbons: those were velvet ribbons!! Black, red, white, green, brown... they didn't mean anything to me...
but... hidden in the back, there it was: a champagne colored ribbon!!!
And that is how I started to see this necklace!!!

A black and a champagne colored ribben are rolled up, twisted and decorated with bronze and bright golden rings.
My signature, as always, is the asymmetry: the two golden leather flowers on one side of the necklace make it unique.

The length of the necklace as on the picture is 64cm (25'')

Red and raw!

Red and black necklace. Raw coral necklace. Chainmaille chain maille necklace.

Red corals in a black chain chainmail necklace.
To separate the corals I made "knots" of Half-Byzanthine style chainmaille made with dull black and bright golden jumprings.
Every piece of coral is handmade and different from the other. Their sizes go from 1cm x 1,5cm up to the biggest in the middle which is 1,5cm x 2,5cm

Medium long necklace.
The length of the necklace is 70cm

How I stopped losing my keys 2, or find what matters!


I made some other designs for my so called 'cerca-chiavi'


 
A 'smart' embellishment for a lady's handbag with a beautiful hand-carved squared cream colored mother-of-pearl plate.















The one above was made for a person that likes oriental things, the pendent is made with a hand carved jade stone.
In this case the pendent is an elegant black and white engraved mother-of-pearl plate.

An elegant solution: a chain fastened to one of the two handles. Outside the bag hangs a pendent and at the other end of the chain are your keys.
Pulling the chain outside your hand-bag you get your keys!

This can also be a nice and original present. A birthday, or for Xmas; what about a surprise in an Easter egg? Or instead of a plant or bunch of flowers??
I can personalized each item: colors, initials, for someone who has a particular collection...
