Sometimes inspiration comes as a surprise. This time it was a question from a customer, about a special pair of earrings. And it triggered my creativity.
These are the three long chain necklaces I made the other week, finally finished and photographed. Two chains with pearls, four chains with hematites and one chain with matte agates.
I hope to have them all in the shop soon!
I am still working on one of the necklaces I was going to show you, so this will be just a sneak peak of what’s coming.
I am making long chain necklaces at the moment. Two with stones (hematite and agate) and one with white pearls. All combined with small chains.
I hope to be able to show them in full soon!
Last week it was the national Cinnamon Bun Day here in Sweden! (Yes, we take our fika seriously.)
The cinnamon bun is considered by many the most “swedish” of all the fika pastry. Continue reading
I know. It has been a long time since I posted anything. But I am here now, and I have a bunch of bib necklaces to show you.
I was sure that my favorite of these statement necklaces would be the chain bib with quartz stones but, to my surprise, I really like the pearl bib with mixed warm colors. 🙂
Hope to put this in the shop soon, but need a day with better light to take more pictures.
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!
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!
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!
My little vacation!
I am back home from my mini-vacation. And the trip went to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. I had never been there before, so we walked a lot and did a lot of sightseeing! Continue reading
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!
