Saturday, 31 August, 2013

Stone and Metal Necklaces

Tuesday, 27 August, 2013

While sorting out old pictures I came upon these photos from Fall 2010. They are as relevant as new: I am in the process of creating new designs with semiprecious stones and various metals this Fall. Of course my new designs will be different, but in a similar genre. It is not often that I can say about 3-year old designs that I still like them, but I do still like these. The model in these pictures is my niece Ala Karbowiak who lives in Warsaw, Poland.

      

Custom Wedding Bracelet

Monday, 26 August, 2013

A reason to be proud: I custom-made this beaded bracelet for a wedding dress by Ruby Ellen Designs, and managed to capture the nature of the dress without obvious repetition of pattern. Actually used some of the same sequins that Ruby embelished the dress with. The bracelet is hand-woven with Japanese delica beads, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and tiny seed beads.
