Sunday, April 6, 2014


I have for a long time wanted to try my hands ,maning a mixed media necklace,
and desited to make this with one of my soldered charms.

I used some old amethyst stones, pearls from an old necklace,and constructed
the fabric (silk) pearl ,with smaller pearls from the same old necklace.

I also found two little hearts, amethyst and rosequarts, and 
tied  old sarisilks and a braided one together ,to hang it.
The colours of the sarisilk are not as dark in real life, as they seems here !!
As it is my first try, you masters will find mistakes, but I am satisfied with the result,
and have send this one out in the world for a gift to a dear friend.

This collaged lid with nature theame, was also
very fun to make. I , as you know ,love birds, and this little one rests
lovely in it`s nature and paper nest.

She needed a little paint on her feathers, to go with the beautiful bark pieces
in the bottom.

I hope you all have a wonderful sunday, and maybe enjoy time with family or friends.
I hope you are all happy and feeling well.

Love and hugs,

Thank you for showing us your new makes.
I particularly like the necklace.
I'm experimenting with non metallic fasteners and beads as, like myself so many people seem to get irritated by metals, even when they are low or nickel-free.
I will post some pics when I remember!
Your little birdie has such huge eyes, hope it's not straining to lay a big egg!
I hope you continue to be well too and that you have had a lovely sunday too.

О скъпа Дороти, всичко което правиш е вълшебно и като излязло от приказките. Обичам колието направено от толкова различни и красиви земни материали.
Поздрави и хубава седмица от мен.
