3  This is the Season of Red! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna Iv on: January 12, 2012 06:38:27 AM
The outside weather could have been better, but winter is the season of holidays, and this fact really increases the spirits. And this is also the reason why these days I'm into red so much! However, I make flowers of other colors too!

Just wanted to show you some of the last creations. Hope you'll have fun watching  Wink



this is a sash, which can however be used as a headband too, as the flowers are not big:




And I'm also getting ready for the Valentine's Day:






Of course, I'm dreaming of at least some snow this winter:


I know, it's so many pics, but it's been some time since I've posted, so got  a lot of stuff to show you. Thanks for watching!

4  Re: Fabric Flowers... as usual ;) NOW WITH A TUTORIAL in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna Iv on: July 25, 2011 01:59:52 PM
I discovered Kanzashi flowers over the internet, just the basics. But now I simply like to add something really mine to the design, so I just experiment, like inserting a different color fabric into the petal:



or combining various fabrics types



What can I say - I love fabric flowers!

Hi,

I'm back with a little tutorial!

So, the materials:
- Organza fabric
- Either matching or contrasting seed beads
- Candle, matches
- Scissors, matching thread and needle

1. Cut off two stripes of organza 1 inch wide and 10 inches long each.


2. Then cut them into squares, the side of which will measure 1 inch. You will need 20 pieces.


3. The petals of the flower are roundish, so we should cut the corners of the squares to make them more or less round. As this is kinda free form flower, I dont really try to make the petals all absolutely similar and perfectly round.


4. Now singe the edges of organza pieces. All the petals are ready.


5. The way we assemble the petals will define the looks of the flower. Here is how to make it fast and easy: place all the petals on the table in two layers; the upper layer should be placed on the junction of the bottom layer petals, like on the photo.


6. Gather the petals on the thread just the way they lay on the table.


7. Now just pull all the petals towards the thread end where the knot is made.


8. Then fix that bundle of petals with the thread.


9. To finish the flower, sew as many beads as you want at the base of the flower between the petals.


10. The flower is ready. And it shines so nice in the sun!


Hope it turned out understandable!
It is also at my blog with some more pics.

Thanks for watching!

6  Fabric Flowers... as usual ;) NOW WITH A TUTORIAL in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna Iv on: July 21, 2011 06:10:15 AM
Hello Craftsters!

For a month I haven't had the opportunity to create. So now I'm just happy I'm back to all my fabrics and beads! I've already made several new flowers, and I just cannot help sharing them with you! Hope you will like them!

I like experimenting with Kanzashi flowers styles. This is the latest idea I had: it's with pearls and Cat's eye stones:



This poppy flower is big - 3.25"



and these are smaller:



Finally, I wanted to make something really summer-ish. So, I chose sun yellow organza, as it's very bright and light. The flowers are very lightweight, fluffy - right what I needed



More flowers are soon to come!

Really hope you like these! If not - let me know anyway - I'd love to know what you would change about them.

Thank you !

Hi there!

I just wanted to share my new creation with you. It's with plastic circle beads for little additional embellishment. Hope you like it Smiley


Let me know what you think of the colors, cause this summer I decided to get myself some green clothing, thus green accessories are kinda topical...

8  Circles All Around!!! New Piece! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Anna Iv on: May 07, 2011 12:35:53 PM
Hi there!

Finally I've found some time to share with you my recent hobby of making jewelry from hardpaper circles covered with woolen thread. They make quite nice and interesting "beads", very versitile and suitable for different jewelry pieces. The project I love best is this purple necklace, embellished with matching Czech glass beads



I've also made several cord necklaces using macrame technique and these woolen circles as pendants







and earrings





Thank you guys for looking! I'd appreciate your comments, both negative and positive!

Hi,

Thank you!

I made some more flowers... I used vintage fabric for the royal blue one. And as I like the shades of lilac and purple, I made that lilac flower with a vintage button, which turned out to absolutely match the color of the fabric.




I especially like how these three flowers mounted on the barette turned out


This black one is with an opalite Moonstone bead in the center


Thank you for watching!!

Hi,

I've made some more flowers. They are rather romantic than casual, even in this dull and depressive season. I think, I just like creating something bridal-like, something for special occasios, and I rarely make stuff to wear every day. Well, nobody's perfect, right? Anyway, here they are:









Hope you like them! Thank you for looking!
