Autumn Colours

Hello, dear readers! Today I would like to share a necklace in Autumn colours that I've just made using the gorgeous ceramic pendant from the talented Spanish artist Majoyoal (Mari Carmen Rodriguez Martinez).

Besides the artisan ceramic pendant, I have used Czech faceted glass beads, Indian glass beads and Chinese crystal beads. The clasp is plain but easy to use.

I have had this pendant for about two years but only now I have had the inspiration to create something interesting with it.

I am entering this creation featuring Majoyoal pendant in the October Challenge of ArtBeadScene which has the Dragonfly Lamp by Émile Gallé as inspiration piece.
"Dragonfly Lamp"
By Émile Gallé, late 1800's- early 1900's
French Art Nouveau, Cameo Art Glass

Enjoy the day!

Some October Makes

Hello, dear readers! 

I would like to share with you my latest makes.

A set of four Swarovski crystal necklaces for a friend (I love crystals but not so much in jewellery)

My participation in the Operation Tackle That Bead Stash (I really have used only items in my stash) October challenge dedicated to Fireworks. It is the Fairground Attraction Pendant designed by the much talented Liz Reed, made in teal and green.

Three Beaded Squares for Bead-It-Forward 2017 whose theme is Fantasy. Isn't the elf the most adorable thing? 

What have you been making? Have you started thinking about Christmas gifts? Please share in the comments.

PS Maybe it's not an elf but one of the 7 dwarfs from Snow White. I'm not sure anymore.

Celebrating the Art of Curating Treasuries on Etsy

Hello, lovely readers!

Long time no see!

As you may know I have an on-line shop at ETSY marketplace. I have made some sales but not many. Nevertheless, I have met beautiful and talented people there. One of the things that I love at Etsy is that we have the ability to create visual compilations of items on sale. Unfortunately, that capacity is going to be turned off. So, no more treasuries on Etsy for ever.

To celebrate the art of making treasuries I have invited Christine Altmiller from the blog One Kiss Creations that you may know from the blog hops A Time to Stitch in which I have participated.

I have also invited my team mate Bec from BeLuliDesigns at the ONE Treasury Team in ETSY.

This is Christine's Treasury, dedicated to fordite (also known as Detroit agate)
