Capri-Gold Collar

Over the years my to-do-list was and still is growing and this netted collar is an old tutorial from Varvara a great russian beader. Keeping it classy I used capri-gold facetted glas-beads and dyed-rose with copper rocailles. It goes smooth around the neck and for its around 300 beads the weight is nice and gives the collar a good solid feeling. The appearance is classy & elegant so its perfect for an evening dress.

For the next time I will have a break as we are preparing for our annual vacancy.

Have a great time ahead, see ya soon!

Great fun....

at two sides, me and the new owner of my handmade collar and bracelet.
I'm really happy that I was able to fullfill her expectations and she enjoyed her new accessoires.

That's the best reward we can get for our work!

Something old....

A dear friend of mine asked me to weave her a short collar in turquoise and little bit bronze. She searched my albums and stopped at a netted collar I had woven in the early 2000. No embellishment was required, it should appear simple and plain. Hope I get it this way she asked for.

Have a nice and sunny rest-weekend!

Anahata Version

Another pendant from Beaded Treasures. I've taken an inside- and outside photo to show the colors and sparkling on its best.
It's a nice solid pendant about 4 cm in diameter and for the many facetted beads it has its weight.

For the next days I have to stop working with this nice book as I got a custom order for an necklace.
Photos will follow.

Wish you all a nice and sunny week!

Maroc Memories- Pendant

With "Beaded Treasures" Anja Schlotmann has created a nice Book with many interesting objects. Do you know that? New projects and you'll never have the right beads?
Normally I start a new project by picking up my beads and color palette but this time I decided to start with beads I have and then pick up the colors step by step whilest working.
I'm sorry that the camera didn't get the different color hues so exactly, this is the best result I could get.

Now it's time to order new beads.... I'll never have enough ;-))

Have a nice and sunny weekend ahead!
