Three new chokers

So I finished them this morning, those layered choker necklaces I started a while ago. I made three of them – in black, white and gray.

I still need to take modelled photos, so you can see how the layer effect looks when the necklaces are worn. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be weather for it tomorrow. 🙂

Keep an eye out, will have them in the shop soon!

Work in progress – chokers

Beading again

This is what I have on my worktable at the moment. It will become layered beaded chokers –eventually. Work on the necklaces is slow at the moment.

It seems that the more I have to do in my “non crafting life”, you know the kind that pays the bills, I turn to projects that are time consuming. Believe it or not, I have been working on these necklaces for a couple of weeks now.

I think it is the calm and peacefulness that beading brings me. It is like therapy. All I have to think about is which pattern I am creating, after that it is just placing one small bead after the other on the cord.

I hope to be able to show you how the necklaces turned out soon!

In the meantime why don’t you check out the shop here on tline.se or visit my shops on Etsy or DaWanda to see all available items!

Shop update – and relaxing

Here is a little shop update. 🙂

I have finally listed those long statement earrings that I made in the middle of June. So they can be found in the shop now. In case you don’t remember what they look like, here they are again.

I will also start to add more items to my Etsy and my DaWanda shops soon. I have been relaxing this summer (besides working at my new day job). Creatively I have been painting a little (see my effort as a beginner artist here) which is just for fun. 🙂

But my fingers are starting to itch, so I don’t think it will be too many weeks before I have something new to show you. Stay tuned!

Going on a mini-vacation

So I am trying to prepare for a small vacation. I will be gone just five days, but the travel is squeezed in to my ordinary schedule. Right between my work days so I don’t have much time for preparations.

I have always had more time off in summers before (like four or five weeks), but this year I have a new day job and am working.

Where I am going? It’s a european city I have wanted to visit for a long time, I hope to show you in a blog post in a couple of weeks.

See you later!

It’s so Swedish: or is it?

I am a curious person, so when I stumbled on a list of things that american people thinks is true about what life in Sweden is like, I read it.
And no surprises really. Meatballs and Ikea. Abba. Cold. Got it.

And there are a few things that almost always are thought about Sweden. So what is actually true?

New style statement necklace

So, I finally finished that chain necklace with pearls. And while I was at it I made one with black beads too. I really like that it is different from “usual” necklaces I make, where I keep the beads in the middle. But here the pearls/beads spread out on the sides instead, and the middle is only the slim chain. It is a new style statement necklace.

I hope to have these in the shop soon! I might do more of these in the future. 🙂
