Amber Bracelet

This lovely piece seems to have a sort of honey glow to it. The main elements are real amber, finished of with yellow jasper, Czech crystal beads and Czech glass beads.

Green Pendant

This mossy green pendant has been based around the vintage element at the centre. I liked its delicacy and wanted to compliment it in my work. The  green and orange stones are coloured mother of pearl and the little red bead is real coral. The rest is a mixture of Czech beads and the dark green ones are dyed sandalwood.

Green Jasper Soutache Set

This striking green and gold jasper set makes for a bright yet refined addition to your collection. The colour is unusual; these stones are more often a deep red. I used Czech Pega soutache cords and Czech beads to complete this piece.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone! To celebrate, I have made this lovely orange bracelet. I love how it turned out with the swirling browns and golds-it reminds me of tigers with their brilliant orange fur and piercing eyes. Wishing you all a great start to the year!

Merry CHristmas

Merry Christmas!  The fairy lights are up, the smell of warm mince pies fills the air and there are mountains of presents to wrap. Wishing you a happy, sparkly season.

Outside The Window Is The Rain…

Outside, the rain is lashing the windows in the most un-spring-like way. I dream of sunny weather, long walks and the many spectacular miracles of nature that are just around the corner. For now, however, this toucan will have to do. I hope you like it!

Spring is comming

Spring is here! To celebrate I have decided to make these golden and white blossoms. They represent the ever stronger rays of sun that pierce through the clouds more and more every day! Real blue bells will  soon be carpeting entire forest floors like  magical purple seas. Hope you like my broach! I am also entering a few more bits of jewelry to the Preciosa contest this month. www.preciosa-ornela.com www.facebook.com/PreciosaOrnela

Owl Pendant

  This is my black and white owl pendant. As the nights are getting shorter, keep your eyes peeled for any of these birds still out in the early daylight hours, trying to make the most of the hunt. You may see them skimming the long golden grass of a field, or swooping among branches in parks or forests. As always, I hope you like it.

Owl Brooch

The moon slips out from behind a cloud, bathing the clearing in gentle light and the leaves and grass are outlined in glimmering silver . An owl raises its head, its gleaming eyes reflecting the mystical glow as it sweeps its capturing gave over all that shines below it on the forest floor. Spreading its huge, graceful wings, it launches itself into the dark night, a ghostly silhouette against the golden moon. Ok, this is my new brooch. I hope you like it!

Preciosa Contest “Ball, Masks”

Carnival balls may are over, but the sparkles are still here… This is my entry to the Balls and Masks competition organised by Preciosa, makers of traditional Czech beads. Imagine my joy when I discovered that my piece had won first place! The prize was 1kg of their splendid beads. I loved making this set, and now I’m off to make some more! www.preciosa-ornela.com www.facebook.com/PreciosaOrnela
