I bought this green ceramic beads a lot of time ago. It was love at first sight. There is something in them that I simply like, maybe it’s the shade of green, or the fact that they are a little rounded, even if squared. I could not tell.
I have been hoarded them for many months because I couldn’t figure out how to use them, till now.
The earrings “Hammering around” are available here.
Today I want to show you these lovely earrings featuring semi precious rhodonite beads.
They are secured with French hooks in a silver colour and adorned with a little swirl of wire on the top front.
You can find them here.
By the way, did you know that “Rhodonite” come from the Greek word “Rhodon”, which means “rose”, “pink”? There is always something to learn!
Today I want to show you a pair of earrings that would be perfect for a dinner out in an elegant restaurant.
I found these glass beads in a vintage open market some time ago and I instantly felt in love with them.
The gold, the black and the gray meet and melt into each other in a way that reminds me of water colours.
There is a sort of fluidity in that pattern, don’t you think?

These earrings are so hard to picture!
The photo (or maybe I) can’t catch the golden sparkles of the dark blue chips.
And what could I say about those magnesite beads? They are so yummy! It seems as if they are coated with sugar!
I don’t know if we should love all our creations in the same way, but I guess this is one my most loved design. The wire wrapping work is really easy and fun to make, but I find it very elegant. All in all, I loved making them.
I have had the flu with temperature, cough and everything the whole week. It wasn’t fun, but the bright side was that I could work on my project for the Sequintastic September blog hop hosted by Saturday Sequins!
I have never used sequins in my works, they are not a part of me and I wouldn’t know how to incorporate them in my designs. Nonetheless, I have always wanted to try and make some earrings using sequins.
This blog hop was the perfect occasion to give sequins a try. So, thank you Sarah!
First, I chose my palette:
And then the fun part: assembling everything together!
This is the best – and maybe the only thing – I can do with sequins.
It was a blast to work with them, having them jumping on my floor and everywhere. I really enjoyed it, but I don’t think I will use them so often. Sequins require a lot of patience and I don’t think I have enough dexterity to work with them.
Now I am curious to see what other artists made with sequins, so I’ll think I will hop around. Visit Sarah’s blog for the complete list of partecipants!
The little hamster in my brain is on strike, he says it’s too tired to run the wheel and write a decent blog post… What? We all have a hamster in our brain that runs its wheel to formulate our thoughts…
Well, maybe it’s better to reduce the talk to a minimum. So…
This is on my bead table…
This is not on my bead table but on my way to work…
This is what I hope to see on my bead table pretty soon…
