I just realized that I did not show you the foot jewelry that Magdalena won in my Giveaway. What a oversight! Shame on me!
Magdalena voted for the Preciouse Heart barefoot sandals, and after a winning she chose them in black. It was the first time I made them black and I think they look really good this way too. So, here they are
I had a great pleasure (and a significant shortness of breath 😉 ) while photographing my friends daughter, with the new baby barefoot sandals designs. Here are some cute shots of this sweet little feet.
People involved in this session: Dobkosia – stylisation, mother support and a lot of back pain next day 😉
Adrianna – cute little feet owner, not even a sight of shortness of breath or tiredness while working ModernCrochetClub.etsy.com – design and making the sandals, photography and sweat on the back + shortness of breath during the session 😉
Some time ago I bought a polka dot bag. I loved its pattern and even though it would not match anything I had at my wardrobe, I had to buy it 🙂 After all it always can be an interesting eye-catching addition to an ordinary outfit. As I got back home with my new bag, I decided to make a bracelet with this pattern. I can crochet it, so why not ?
I did some research to maybe get the pattern, but all I found was the bracelet with one bead dots, so had to design the pattern of my own.
Here is what came out from the bag to the bracelet 🙂
One is always to few for me, so I made another one in negative.
And then made matching one with glass pearls and shamballa bead.
I don’t recommand this combination, because shamballa bead scratched some pearl paint from the neighbour pearls while wearing 😦 Now I would use a Swarovski crystal instead of Shamballa or add not painted glass beads between them.
Anyway, I love to wear this set 🙂 firs with the bag and now without it, because I had to return it 😦 Unfortunately it turned out to be a really bad quality 😦
And what is the best place to crochet a bracelet?? sunny meadow? 🙂 Oh yeees 🙂
I am crocheting the black one, but follow the thread to find the ivory one.
I made some sparkling sandals for this summer. They are really eye catching while your feet are sinking in the sand on the sunny beach. They are all white, so can be perfect for your beach wedding.
I used very thin white mercerized cotton, so they are really comfortable and you don’t even feel while wearing them. I also used some glass beads and some Swarovski crystals to give them some glam 🙂 Beads are not sew on, but woven into the stitches while crocheting. That prevents them from falling off in use.
What do you think about this sparkling sandals? Do you like them more or less then the one without beads?
You know what? I just thought, that you can get one of them 🙂 Just like ModernCrochetClub facebook page (you can do it on the right blog bar or through http://www.facebook.com/ModernCrochetClub), leave a comment under the post letting me know which one do you like the most “Precious Heart”, “Precious Flower” or “Simple Swarovski”. Feel free to share it to your friends 🙂 You can do that till June 30th. I’ll draw a winner in first days of July and she/he will recieve a pair of her/his favourite bead sandals from this post.
It is finally warm and I can wear short sleeves and more and more jewelery 🙂 Everybody can see it, cause it is not hidden under the warm coat. I also found some time to make a couple of bracelets who waited patiently in line, so today I would like to show you my favourite set of bracelets, that I wear all the time this warm days. If it doesnt fit my outfit and stays home, I really miss this rattle sound that it makes on the wrist.
This set contains of a bracelet that I made from Swarovski Pearls in gray. I added Swarovski round crystal in black and 2 metal separators with little Swarovski crystals too. It is all put together on a rubber cord and works really fine like this.
The second part is 2 smaller bracelets made of some cheap gray glass pearls, that I bought very long time ago. They finally become a bracelets with the same rubber cord.
And the last, but the most laborious and beautiful bracelet, that my friend Justynka made for me 🙂 THANK YOU! I LOVE IT!!
It consist of 2 ropes made from the tiny toho beads in black and crystal, not that big as I use ;), and has a little black ball made of even smaller beads. Real masterpiece!
Justyna runs an etsy shop called Dobkosia, so you can check her other works there. I think they are worth to do it.
