Amethyst Purple Bridal Set - Stunning Swarovski Navette

I made this set using one of the most beautiful Swarovski shapes: Navette. The multiple facetts, the large size of the crystals ( 3 cm) and the rich amethyst color, make this crystal the perfect choice to embelish such a special day: the wedding day. I made a bridal set, composed of earrings, necklace and bracelet. The bride will wear a dramatic black calla-Lilly bouquet, so it is only natural to think she is a spirited bride. Made to order.

Bling Bling Swarovski Button Rings with Leather

I absolutely love Swarovski buttons. I have used them both for rings and bracelets. I sew them directly onto leather strips and top them with a cute round Swarovski pearl or Miyuki beads. Each time, the outcome is spectacular because of the vibrant colors : light amethyst, crystal tabac, chrysolite green, crystal volcano, colorado topaz. I think it is a cool everyday accessory, so why not go Bling Bling all the way?

Statement Twig Cascading Necklace by BijuBrill

I admit it! I love statement jewelry! Always have, always will! So, no wonder I created this necklace. It has everything: power, femininity, movement, versatility. At least that is what I think ;-)
I must say, it is not an easy task to complete such necklace, but it's worth every minute till finished!
I take each twig, mold it in my hands, as no twigs are the same, place them one near the other and start the assembly....and this is the result! The perfect necklace for nature lovers, a cascading, twisted twig necklace.
Available in my Etsy Shop.

Royal Inspired Padparadscha Earrings

Padparadscha is a delicate light to medium toned pink-orange to orange-pink hue corundum, originally found in Sri Lanka, but also found in deposits in Vietnam and parts of East Africa. Padparadscha sapphires are rare; the rarest of all is the totally natural variety, with no sign of artificial treatment.

The name is derived from the Sanskrit "padma ranga" (padma = lotus; ranga = color), a color akin to the lotus flower (Nelumbo nucifera ‘Speciosa’)


Having the same elegant feel to them, this stunning color combination is all it takes for a sophisticated look. Antique brass and a soft pink-orange hue of the crystals, with detailed cabochon setting, for a royal look! This pair is sold! Made to order.

When it comes to glamorous jewelry, you can not go wrong when choosing bright green color with the gorgeous gold tone contrast. This stunning color combination is well known in royal palaces, in their majestic decors, or in luxurious clothing and jewelry. Green emerald color is well known to be a very popular choice for wealthy, sophisticated people that want to shine, that want to be elegant and have a classic, endless piece of jewelry.
Of course we can not think of owning such a huge natural green stone, but we can wear sparkly Swarovski crystals, set in detailed gold plated cabochons, that will certainly make you feel like royalty! :-)

Merry Christmas! Craciun Fericit! Joyeux Noël!

Christmas Comes

Christmas comes with children singing,
Christmas comes with sleigh bells ringing,
Christmas comes with frosty nights,
Christmas comes with snowball fights.

Christmas comes with Santa Claus,
Christmas comes with snowy floors,
Christmas comes with robins and reindeer,
Chsitmas comes with a hearty cheer.

Christmas comes with gold, frankincense and myrrh,
Christmas comes with Jesus' birth,
Christmas comes with angels from afar,
Christmas comes with a wondrous star.

Christmas comes now, at last,
Christmas comes, like in the past,
Christmas comes after such a long wait,
Christmas comes and it will be great.

DIY Polymer Clay Jewelry Organizer

Well, I must confess that working with clay is not that easy as I have imagined...especially because it was an air-dry clay, that after some molding , shaping and reshaping it lost its flexibility. But I have done it and what resulted is quite spectacular :-) Well...I'll let you be the judge of that.


At first, I had no idea what I wanted to do....a plate, a bowl, a doll, some jewelry...but than it hit me: all my earrings were laying around the house, in boxes, on glasses or bags. I had no beautiful place  to display them for my customers. So I decided to make myself a jewelry organizer / holder and it was really fun. I made a polymer clay frame, that I gave an old golden vintage patina. Of course, you can also use it for framing a picture or a painting. You choose its purpose.

Here is what you need:

1. Fimo Air dry polymer clay
2. an old patterned tray
3. cutter
4. wax paper
5. hammer
6. cutter
7. cardboard
8. net
9. acrylic paints + paintbrushes
10. super strong glue
11. ruler
12. roller





Step by Step Instructions:

1. Start by shaping the clay. Place it between 2 sheets of wax paper and roll it with a wooden roller or something heavy. Cut the clay in 1.5 inch wide pieces and place them on the edges of the tray.
Press the clay really well to make sure those beautiful floral motifs will imprint onto the clay. Make sure the clay is thick enough ( about 3-4 mm minimum), or else it will brake! Press it gently with the roller to even the back surface as well. Smooth any imperfections with your fingers by adding a small amount of water.
2. Remove the excess clay with the cutter and make sure the edges are as sharp as possible. Let the clay dry for 15 minutes and than gently remove it from the tray! 
It should look like this:
3. Place the clay onto a very flat surface and try to fix any irregularities with your damp fingers.
Let it air dry for at least 24 hours! 

4. After the clay has set, place it over a piece of cardboard ( I bought a photography holder, with a plastic base, to place it on a shelf or to hang it).  Trace the shape of the frame and than cut it with our very sharp cutter. 
5. Glue the net onto the cardboard and than the polymer clay. Cut off any excess net and burn the edges.


6. Start painting and get creative. :-)
I used white paint for the inside, as the cardboard was brown. And I painted the frame gold, with an old patina look, as the Fimo polymer clay looks like wood when it's dry.

7. And that's it! Hang it, display it, with your favorite earrings or add a beautiful photo. :-)
Hope you liked my first DIY project. ♥

Dawanda DIY Challenge - Say It With Clay

Hello lovelies, I hope you had a very beautiful and fun summer vacation. It has been almost 2 months since my last post, I took a break, I needed one :-)
All summer I had the need of laying down, to sun bathe, to chill....oh., I miss those sunny and bright days. I think it was the perfect summer, not too hot, nor too rainy, don't you think?

Well...I will start to post the new creations, because I have some, you know? :-)
A couple of weeks back, I received a message from Alex from Dawanda, asking me if I want to join a contest organized by them, where I should create something with a surprise item I would receive in the mail. Of course I accepted the challenge, I said yes, and 1 week later, I open the beautiful wrapped envelope.
It was a FIMO Air polymer clay package. Now.....I must think to make something creative :-)
Any thoughts? I am open to suggestions, as I have never played with clay before.

SO, after I make something creative, I will need you support to win a 100€ voucher to spend on Dawanda. So, fingers crossed please.
Stay tuned for new updates.
xoxo

Rose Gold Collection

Rose gold has been on my favorite list for so long and it is such a great and elegant material, that even Swarovski launched a collection with several types of shapes and textures for 2013. I have created a small collection of jewelry, where I incorporated crystals and metal charms in combination with silver and black. There are bracelets, earrings and necklaces to choose from, you just have to find your favorite piece and add it to your wardrobe. :-)
Hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. ♥
