My Creative Space
I have noticed I start making jewelry pieces whenever I try to figure out how to proceed with purse making. I find working on different materials relaxing, it sets me in balance. I think I would get bored if I only sew purses or only made jewelry, I'm that kind of restless soul.
These pendants got finished while I was waiting for some supplies to arrive. Most of all I desperately needed chain for necklaces. One custom order has been waiting because I didn't have suitable chain. But it arrived just yesterday, I'm really glad! These pendants have vintage (I mean REALLY old because we found those left over rolls from the attic when moved to this house of ours) wallpaper adhered on metal settings paired with an assortment of vintage beads. Those crystals are one of my very last pieces I have left, treasures found from a Parisian flea market a year ago.
Yesterday my shoppe got a new Dahlia necklace in black & white. It's sort of strange it didn't happen until now. I mean I had two custom orders in this color combo but never made one for my shop. Now it is there, finally. And I enjoy making textile jewelry too!
Two more weeks before Kootoyoo's blog continues with My Creative Space postings. Can't wait!
