Another set of wire jewelry – my favorite style

Hello Guys,

I am still trying o work with wire. I have made some weeks ago nice earrings for myself, (I didn’t made any pictures, because I am wearing it ’till that), and a lot of people asked me if I could make some for them? So… here is a small set of those, I am calling them ‘bubble earrings’:

(Sorry for the bad picture, I was finished by night, and my mother-in-law wanted to bring them to her friends to show. One of those already bought – a black wire one with rose quartz. All others are coming back, and I’ll make proper pictures of every pieces!

 

Award

The Good Neighbor Awards nomination

Hello Guys,

Some days ago, I’ve got excited news: I was nominated to ‘good neighbor awards’! On one of my reader (hmmm… had to think about what to write here… can I say ‘friend’?…), Katherine from http://pillowsalamode.wordpress.com has made a cute award thing: she is blogging for 2 years, and wanted to share the anniversary with other crafty bloggers in a unique way: she asked her readers to nominate blogs, who could be an awesome neighbor, and why? I am so happy I was nominated by someone, the whole list of nominates is awesome, I spent 2 days of reading their posts! You have to check it out here: http://pillowsalamode.wordpress.com/2013/09/22/the-good-neighbor-awards-and-giveaway-winner/ !

(it would be awesome to live in a real neighborhood with these crafty people, I won’t feel alone never ever! :))

Thanks a lot, Katherine!

 

(Sorry for the late news, the whole family is sick here… 😦 )

Some old items uploaded to my shop again

Hello Guys,

I had to work on some old items a bit, like I missed some parts of them, etc. E.g. I have sold only one piece of hair clip, so I had to make a pair for my sweet butterfly hair accessory. I’ve lost an earring, and one of my brooch was broken … so, here they are, they are kinda new… soon to be ready in my shop again:

White flowers set – 100% wool felt – for a winter wedding

Hello Guys,

here is a new thing too. First of all: finally, I’ve made a bracelet! I only made one, and my mother-i-law asked it long time ago, so I wanted to make some more. And then: it’s a new style. I’ve seen something similar on Pinterest, and I wanted to try it. What do you think?
