Sweet Roses Necklace

This romantic necklace was inspired by victorian jewelry. It was known that the early year of that era ( 1837 -1860 ) were described as romantic or sentimental that reflected the youth and courtship and marriage of the young Queen Victoria.
The pendant was made with a porcelain cabochon, fresh water pearl and swarovski beads. A pink velvet ribbon was use to complete the look.

My first brooch

Almost a year ago I was hooked to wire jewelry and I have been making almost all kind of jewelry except brooch. I bought tutorials and I took workshop in making brooch... but still no brooch....(lol)

" Well...I guess I'm not into brooch...." that was always my excuse. But a jewelry designer should be able to make anything including brooches. After I saw Rina's final shell collection, yesterday I decided to make brooch with sea shell to make a pair with my sea shell bangle.I have to confess, the process was not as difficult as I thought. So, who wants to order brooch from me?

Look at them.... aren't they a great pair?

Tribute to mom

God gave me an angel right here on earth,
She taught me my values and gave me self worth,
She guides me through life with her wisdom, God's light,
She steers me from wrong, and leads me toward right.

She stands by my side when things are rough,
She taught me in bad times we need to be tough.
She is there when I need her throughout all my years,
She laughed with me in happy times, and comforted my tears.

My angel on earth was sent from above,
God paid her not in wages, but with eternal love.
She has been my confidante, my rock, my protector,
And when God says her job is through,
I know I won't forget her.

She need not a halo, or silken wings of grace,
For the glory of God's love shines upon her face.
My Guardian angel, can be replaced by no other,
She is gods gift to me - I call her my dear mother.

Druzy Bangle

In the beginning she was my teacher... as time went, these couple of months we became best friend. In MP community she is quite famous with her creative ideas. I envy her talent and her productivity. So when she asked me to me her a bangle, I felt so honoured... teacher trusted me to make her a bangle using her own Druzy.
After I got the beads, a rush of adrenalin came through my body... I felt nervous as well as excited. I couldn't wait to finish it for her but at the same time I was afraid if I could't meet her expectation.
Because the beads were quite small, it was a bit hard to handle. I spent 12 hours and more than 10 metres of wire to make the bangle.
So, my dearest friend, I thank you for the opportunity you have given me....I had so much fun making it and I like the outcome.... I wish you will like it as much as I do

Another wave bangle.....

After I made the previous bangle base on Yoana's tutorial I decided to make another bangle that was inspired by Eni Oken. If you looked close enough, you would notice the difference.As you can see, a 1 mm wire appeared more solid than 0,8 mm. And it gave the bangle a stronger and masculine character yet soft because of the pearl.Personally, I enjoyed making both of them.If you have to choose, which one do you like better ?
