Earrings "Hammering around"

Earrings “Hammering around”

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.

This is the last pair of earrings I listed in my shop after a long period of silence.

Black bohemian glass and metallic beads

On December, I promised myself to use all the element is my stash, before buying new beads and this pair, as long with many others, was made after I went through my beads, trying simple matching of both form and colours.

I have used a seed bead to stop the wire at the bottom.

I think they are perfect for the day, for a drink out with friends or a casual and spontaneous beer after work.

They are just 3.5 cm long

They are available here.

Today I want to show you these lovely earrings featuring semi precious rhodonite beads.

Pretty in rose

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!

Do you Polyvore?

6 Apr

I decided to explore Polyvore today and I have no idea how it works.

I think there are something like 1.235.658.006.958.652 millions of things that I still need to figure out, but in the meantime I made a set.

Do you recognise the earrings?

What do you say? Do they match the outfit?

Today I want to show you a pair of earrings that would be perfect for a dinner out in an elegant restaurant.

Earrings "Gold night"

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.

Sequintastic September Reveal!

29 Sep

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.

Pretty long, eh?

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!

Missing stuff

18 Jul

I hoped to show you the links received by Peggy from The Charm Barn for the Link Challenge, but they are not arrived yet. I think I’ll have to wait – not that I have many choices here – but I have to tell you that I am really curious to receive them. They look great!

Unfortunately, the links are not the only thing I am missing right now.

Look at these earrings. Can you see what I am missing?

Look closer and please don’t answer: craftsmanship.

Do you see it now? I am missing some texture tools. Something like this for example…

Texture Hammer with 9 Interchangeable Faces by Beaducation

A real dream, right? Maybe I can fake a wedding next month and put it on my wedding list right before the blender!

This is, this is not, maybe this will be…

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…


Do you know Pips? She makes amazing beads and she is hosting an amazing giveaway. Go and check her blog if you are curious.
