What accessories have you made for this Christmas?

This summer weather is great! Hope you enjoy yourself!
And it is also the time for creating and wearing all kinds of jewelry and accessories, especially floral ones. I particularly love to create Smiley
Here are my latest projects. Hope you'll enjoy!

This flower I made to match the summer dress I made for myself

Thank you for watching!
Always hoping to feed your creativity!
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / This is the Season of Red! 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  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fabric Flowers... as usual ;) NOW WITH A TUTORIAL 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 !


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!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Circles All Around!!! New Piece! 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!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Heart Jewelry for Those in Love on: January 23, 2011 12:51:14 PM
Hi there!

It's Valentine's Day craze, and I also couldn't help making some jewelry dedicated to this holiday!

These are the earrings for which I used Czech glass beads, corals and hearts I made myself from hard paper and yarn:

...and I also made a matching necklace:

Finally, this is a hair clip (and a brooch, as I added a pin at the back along with hair clip) in the shape of heart. It consists of many-many tiny flowers and glass beads:

Here is some new stuff - I just couldn't stop making hearts!

Thank you again for looking!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Ribbon Roses with Pearls on: January 06, 2011 11:12:46 AM

I made these hair clips some time ago. They are from satin ribbon and I added pearls to them as I love them so much! Let me know what you think!

And this one is with plastic beads, but I think they look nice here:

Thank you for looking!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Poppy-Style Flowers on: December 30, 2010 11:51:16 AM

I have tried various types of satin flowers, but I'm always in search of something new. So this time I made some quite simple flowers. They resemble poppies, but I made them of different colors. I think they look pretty inspite of their simplisity. What do you think?

Thanx for looking!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Kanzashi Flowers Obsession on: December 11, 2010 01:18:04 PM
I've tried to make different kinds of fabric flowers. Now I'm really obsessed with tsumami kanzashi style flowers. Here are the last ones I've made.

Thanks for looking!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Kanzashi and Agate Necklace on: August 04, 2010 12:54:06 PM
Hi there!

For several days I meant to show you this creation of mine, which I'm really proud of, but cold with all its symptoms right in the middle of the hottest time of the year prevented me from that  Sad  Finally I'm here. So it's a necklace made from agate rounds and the central part is kanzashi flowers matching white and black agate. I'm really happy with how it turned out, I guess, it's my best creation so far! 

Thank you for looking!
