Petals and such…

I’ve finally made it past a certain deadline that was keeping me away from jewellery making! To get myself going again I’ve been mainly creating variations out of a few simple, familiar styles that I’ve liked in the past. I have a ton of new ideas as well but I’m lacking some vital elements like clasps at the moment so they’ll have wait a little longer. Oh, how I wish I had a proper studio space! Now there’s materials scattered around our small apartment and I keep dropping tiny beads on the floor and losing them all the time!

Inez

Inez. Finally got round to using some of the cute chips my friend brought from Argentina. I love this soft yellow aragonite and the translucent, green glass beads. The background image is yet another piece of vintage sheet music. and what a find it was! The cover features a beautiful b&w face shot of Audrey Hepburn and the song is entitled “Lumous” (“Fascination”) from the 1957 film “Love in the Afternoon”. Looks like the film has received a great rating on IMDB, so I hope to come across it at some point, too…

Petal in turquoise 2

Petal. I seem to have a thing for cloisonne beads and this particular type of necklace… I also made one in red&green. I’m thinking I should have a common name for all the necklaces of this style. The ones with cloisonne pendants I’ve been calling Petal but still I’d like to come up with a name that would represent all of them, no matter what the pendant was. Any suggestions?

Petal bracelets

Then I used the same cloisonnes for a couple of bracelets. Just easy summer jewellery…

Arabianna necklace

Finally, a necklace in one of my favourite colour combinations. I called it Arabianna, like the bracelet I made over a year ago already. My blog turned one year old some time ago and I didn’t even notice it. I can’t believe I’ve managed to keep it up as I lose interest in so many things after a short time. But I’m happy to be here still! Thanks for all of your encouraging words over the last 14 months! 🙂

    Specially that new ‘Petal’, blue one, is delicious!

    That same happened to me, about the blog and about the persistence on a new area… Congrat to both of us 😉

    Each piece is lovely, but ‘Inez’ stole my heart and made me yearn for some yellow beads 🙂

    Congrats on your blog’s anniversary! I lost interest in blogging after about year and a half, but I really hope you do not; your work is so inspiring!
