Work in Progress...
Happy Sunday everybody!
Today is a glorious day here in London, plenty of sunshine, nice smells and..hopefully of BBQs, later on..!
So..yesterday it's been a "stay at home, don't move, do what you have to do" day.
I didn't go out at all, but I'm very happy, as I started, and nearly finished, three pieces I was asked.
One is a bracelet/necklace for a dear friend of mine; she saw something she liked on the web and asked me if I could do something of that kind, same stile but personalised.It's a simple but pretty bracelet made of a leather cord and a bunch of charms.I think you call them "friendship bracelet"..?anyway, I picked a Hill Tribe tiny silver heart, stamped with flowers, a "evil eye", as the person who will receive it needs some good luck and protection these days,a nice (semi-precious?) bead and I strung the charms along with a lovely silver plated barrel bead.It's not finished yet, I'm awaiting a small pendant and I have to replace the closing with some Bali silver hooks.
The other piece is a bracelet I made to match my Knotted Chain Necklace..the same style..they'll be given to an online boutique in Italy that sells creations form independent crafters/artists/designers..all made in Italy and very detailed items.I'll write a post soon about this boutique, so stay tuned, if you like Made in Italy!
The third piece it's what I've been working at for most of my day.It is a custom order from a lovely lady on Etsy;she saw one of my necklaces and asked me to customise it and to add/change something..well, that's how we started, but now we are heading to something completely different!So have a look at the necklace now, because today it will be undone again and changed..:)It's proving a bit draining to do and undo this piece continuously, but it's challenging at the same time.This lady is lovely and she is so passionate about what she's going to wear, that is a real pleasure to "explore" with her all the possibilities (and to try them!).
So... a little bit of my weekend here for you.Today I'll go out and enoy the sunshine,finally.
Have a great day!:)
