When I wrote my post about the bib necklaces that were a work in progress two months ago, I could never dream it would take me this long to finish them. But now finally I am ready to put them back in my Etsy shop!
What do you think? Any favourite? ♡
It was ages ago, but I really like those chain chokers I made with pearls last year. At that time I didn’t know it would take me this long to get back to that idea. But it is time.
So here is a sneak peak. I took out some of my favourite beads and started making them into chain chokers. All they need is a chain and clasp – and they are ready!
Keep an eye out in the shop, and I hope to get them up there soon!
Old idea got a new life
I have not made chokers for a long time. But thanks to a customer asking me about a different bead for one of my designs in the shop, I realised I could make more new choker necklaces by combining other beads.
I could not stop myself from buying a big bag of these beads when I found them in a shop. I thought they almost looked like stones. The ceramic beads have different shapes and sizes, and come in three colours – turquoise, blue and black.
On my table right now is a beading project. Last year I sold a few of my multi stranded bib necklaces made with small seed beads, and I have decided to remake a few. The one in the photo I have just started, but I have a turquoise half made one also, and a white one planned (but not started).
When finished, it is my idea that they will look like, or maybe more be similar too because they never turn out the same twice, as these earlier sold necklaces.
But it will probably be another week or two, before I get them all done. 😛
Meanwhile, available items can always be found in my shop, on Etsy and on DaWanda.
I can’t believe that it is already a new year! The end of 2017 went by so fast, mostly because I was working full time and at the same time I got so many orders in late November and December.
I was happy for the unexpected success, but it got a bit stressful and I actually closed my Etsy and my DaWanda shop over Christmas to get a break. Continue reading
So I made those new earrings in a large hoop style. Actually I made one more pair, that I kept for myself. 🙂
And I had already made new long ones with crystals, so showing you them too.
I hop to have all of these in the shop soon!
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.
Works in progress, to become hoop earrings.
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!
