green olives

It’s a name of a bracelet and matching earrings that made recently. Simple idea, glass beads and silver plated bead caps and here they are:

and bracelet

I have to say that green never was my color, but lately my preferences have changed a bit :)


change of topics…

After I got “woooow” about jewelry making I thought it’s time to check a jig. I got one but the infatuation didn’t last too long. Even though I manage to make one pretty cute bracelet the jig couldn’t grab my attention for too long. I finally returned it and ended up with this little bracelet with Swarovski crystals:

It’s very light to wear and looks cute on the wrist.
Now, a new thing in my head is a soutache bracelet. Can’t wait to start one :)

long time…

Lack of new posts doesn’t mean that I was doing nothing. Actually, last two weeks were quite busy. I looked thru a big pile of books about jewelry making, checked some tutorials online, visited art stores (don’t exactly know how many times :)) and of course made some stuff. It started with this bracelet:

Something simple for myself. It was pretty nice until it died in a washing machine :(
Luckily, I saved the crystals and will make a new one :) Then I started to practice with some earrings but…it’s nothing I would like to share :)
Today, I experimented with a liver of sulphur. It didn’t work as I thought but I’ll keep
practicing :) Meanwhile, I started something with soutache…I guess it will be my new ring.
Results soon :)

At the end, a simple card:
