Forest Goddess at New Home

You have already met Forest Goddess that I created for fellow artist Mags in my previous post.

Last Friday she arrived at the new home and Mags started working on creating a necklace with her. I was so excited and curious about the result. Would you like to see how the goddess looks now? Click HERE to visit Mags. I think she's done a great job and I also hope she enjoys this necklaces for many wonderful years! ;)

Have a great Sunday!


Saturday Shopping Day

Today is another wonderful shopping day with Sandra. And here are the things that I finished this week.

Seeds and Pods Cuff with ceramic focal and freshwater pearls for Etsy European Street Team Weekly Challenge, also hosted by Sandra. :)

Custom made Forest Goddess for Finnish jewelry artist - Mags. She sent me this beautiful ocean jasper cabochon and asked for a very special goddess, which would remind her of Finnish forests and brooks. The goddess is already with Mags and she will make a very special necklace using goddess as focal element. I can't wait to see the result! And, of course, I will share it with you, when it's ready. ;)

Inspirational pictures by Urpo A. Tarnanen and Erkki Toivanen.

I am also very proud to present the third Togethrpiece with wonderful Nancy van den Boom - Summer in Holland Cuff. It features miniature poppy oil painting lovingly created by Nancy, which I later embellished with Japanese seed beads in two shades of red, blue and tarnished silver.

The outside of the cuff is covered with light red leather and the inside is lined with soft blue ultrasuede.
Every time I work with one of Nancy's tiny paintings, the ideas start dancing in my head and my heartbeat gets faster. She is such a wonderful artist and great inspiration! I hope you love this cuff as much as I do! ;)

And the last piece of this week is an experimental Midnight Blues brooch with lace, leather, vintage rhinestone and a bit of seed beads.

I hope you enjoyed the shopping tour! Visit Sandra to see more of beautiful pieces from this week! ;)

Have a lovely weekend!

Saturday Shopping Day

It was a busy and stressful week, but I did manage to finish two new things for my Etsy store that I will show you right now.

The first one is a cuff featuring Mucha's The Blonde. I do have a passion for Mucha's art and also for interesting color combinations, and here you can see the result.

The bracelet has adjustable metal base, central element measures 5 cm in diameter. Outside part is covered with leather in bright mustard color and the inside is lined with soft brown ultrasuede.

The other piece that I created this week is Marzipan Flowers statement necklace with magnesite, Czech seed beads and mother-of-a-pearl beads.

Enjoy your Saturday Shopping! ;)


Saturday Shopping Day

For several days I've been away from my computer and creative corner. Some of you already know that my precious little baby-dog is ill and we've been shuttling between the vet and home most of this time. Today she's feeling a bit better and I have a free minute to show you some of my recent creations.

It's a shorter version from one of my most popular designs.

Bracelet with agate and beaded beads. Custom order.

And finally the necklace with agate slice, agate cabochons, black onyx, vintage glass scarabs and a lot of seed beads. Backed with black natural leather. Quite large and heavy piece.
I still don't have a name for it. Do you have any great ideas?

Visit Sandra and find other beautiful items created this week! ;)

Enjoy your weekend!

Saturday Shopping Day

Today is one more of the wonderful shopping days with Sandra of zsazsazsu. I missed the last one because of Bead Soup Blog Party, but today I have several new pieces to show you.

The Rose Cuff - our first Togetherpiece with Nancy. I know you've seen in already, but I love it so much that I must show it off just one more time. :)

And last, but not least, Under the Tree pendant, which is our second Togetherpiece with Nancy.

I wish you all a beautiful weekend! Enjoy the shopping! ;)


One more Togetherpiece with Nancy

This is the second one of our Togetherpieces with wonderful Nancy van den Boom. The first piece was the Rose Cuff that I've already showed you here.

We named this pendant Under the Tree. I adore the tiny oil painting lovingly created by Nancy, it's so delicate and vibrant! I decided to adorn it with Japanese glass seed beads and Czech Charlottes, I also added red jasper cabochon for a splash of color and a vintage metal leaf element from my unusual find collection.

The pendant is only 7.5 cm tall and it hangs from 52 cm long silver grey twisted silk rope. It will look beautiful with many different outfits and will brighten up even the classic suit.
It is handmade with passion and love in the Netherlands and Finland. Such an unusual creative collaboration! I am wondering, in which country will it end up? We'll see! ;)
You can find more pictures and additional information about the pendant in my store.

And if you were wondering, what happened to the Rose Cuff, take a look here. The cuff is in the Netherlands now and has a beautiful new owner. ;)

Have a nice evening and don't forget to watch this space, as there are more Togetherpieces to come! ;)


The Sales Fairy is Here!!!

This week has started brilliantly! We finished the first common piece with wonderful Nancy, that you can see here, I had a sale and a request for a custom order, it's my first Etsyversary and I also found couple of very special packages in the mail.

The first one was from the UK, from Ingrid (better known as Lilou) - amazing lady, who makes the most beautiful handwoven bags and scarves that I'm absolutely in love with.

Inside the package was an elegant black box. Please, also pay attention to the exquisite ribbon she uses. ;)

And inside the box was a gorgeous sales fairy made of delicate mulberry silk. Isn't she stunning?

The Sales Fairy is a fun chain game played by Etsy European Street Team members. The main idea is to catch the fairy, and if you're fast and lucky and you manage to catch one, you have to make a new fairy and list it in your shop for a reasonable price.

Here is my new beauty, flying over the packing station and looking through the window for fresh ideas and possible sales.

I also made a sales fairy that was caught by Mari from Choochmagooz. I hope she lands in Spain very soon. Here she is.

The second package I received was from Finland, from lovely Minna of Karuski. She was very nice and offered me some seed beads that she no longer had use for. Imagine my surprise, when I opened the envelope and found so many great treasures! Wow! I'm such a bead junkie! :))) Thank you, Minna!!!

I hope you also had a good start of the week! ;)
