So this is a progress report of that design I showed you on Monday. I started out making the necklace according to my sketch, and after that it was many trials and errors.
I know I really can’t draw, but maybe you can guess by my sketch where this new idea is going. It’s my work in progress right now.
Chains will replace the areas where there are only lines, and all pearls will be on one side. More and more for each strand. If the finished version will be like the sketch, I have no idea. Still early days in this design.
I hope to show it to you soon!

Well, to tell you the truth, I am not surprised. I did not know it either until it turned up in my twitter feed. But hey, a fika is never wrong. 🙂 Continue reading
I finally finished the gray statement necklace. It only took me a couple of weeks.
It is not that it actually takes that long to make it, I estimate that the beading took maybe four hours, but with a day job and other parts of the business needing its time too, then it can be a while before I find those left over hours. You could say that life got in the way.
Do I regret that I decided to make it? Of course not. In my head I am already planning a white one. 🙂
Stockholm is a city built on islands. And with the archipelago near by, to go by boat is an excellent way to see the city. There are many different excursions to make from the city, checkout these three trips of different lengths.
This week I made some new stylish leather chokers. I just happened to come across these beads, and they were begging me to buy them. 🙂
I took some time off during Easter. We had planned a weekend in the archipelago, but that had to be postponed. After a while with sun and warm for early spring, the weather turned cold and it even snowed. Cozying up inside I started making new long necklaces. Continue reading
Easter weekend is here! And it means time off to spend with the family. So I will just share with you these wild daffodils which in Swedish are called Easter lilies. Because they usually bloom in when it is easter. 😉
If you are curious about Swedish easter traditions, I wrote a post about Swedish easter witches last year.
Last week I got inspired to make new earrings. And the inspiration came from seeing a really old pair.
