This is a small dog brooch I made for a young dog lover who is my daughter’s friend. This miniature pooch is enjoying the warm, golden sunshine, as he sprints across the bottle green fields. He swerves past snow white daisies and cheery yellow dandelions, when he catches sight of a beautiful red flower and stops to take in its fresh, sweet smell. Spring is coming everyone! Hope you like the brooch.
Fuchsia and green stay with me for longer. I embroidered two more pairs of earrings. Check my shop if you are interested.
All my life I was taught that fuchsia and green simply don’t get along at all. I believed this until I saw these oval black glass beads with fuchsia and green stripes. I present to you my new fuchsia & green soutache earrings! They are a burst of colour like pink flowers on a lush green meadow in the spring time.
Astronomic spring has started on 20th March, one day earlier than most people think. What is great, it will stay like this until the end of the century, and from 2044 it will occasionally even start on the 19th! See the Seasons Calculator. It is time to put away warm and grey coats – time for bright and energetic colours, just like these earrings. The season for colourful madness is open!
These first sunny days made me think a lot about the summer holidays, warm sea and turquoise water. Spring is coming in a few days but unfortunately I have to wait for the summer holidays until nearly end of July. In the meantime I embroidered this turquoise soutache set. The earrings and pendant present very nicely with a spring dress but can also add a bit of elegance to a simple shirt and jeans.
This beaded brooch was made for a red jewellery challenge. Why did I yet again choose a bird? My friends know that my family are bird watchers. We love long walks and spy on wild birds. So no wonder that when I heard about the red competition I decide to create this stunning cardinal. What can be more red than this small bird that lives in North and South America? Nothing! I absolutely adore these feathered wonders and I hope that you will enjoy my brooch as much as I enjoy these beautiful birds.
Everywhere I look, I see blooming flowers. My balcony is purple and yellow, the daffodils and crocuses are erupting from their bulbs. Spring really has arrived – at last! I am so happy! Spring went to Kreatywny Kufer too.The brooch you see here was designed for their new competition. The challenge this time was to draw inspiration from the photo you can see below.
This handmade necklace is made of air-drying clay. I bought this clay for my daughter, but unfortunately it wasn’t good enough for very precise elements she needed. I tried to use it in my work and it proved to be a good idea. This air-drying clay is light, easy to form and good to paint on. Each bead was painted in acrylic and varnished. The coloured beads have been decorated with glass crystals. It looks nice with a grey winter sweater.
My first bracelet in this technique. I was surprised how many beads I needed. The technique is very time consuming, but the result is worth it. I am sure this will not be the last time I dabble in this technique.
