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 😉
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.
This time I decided to make bead ropes and braid them in the braid. The idea was good, but it was not so easy to join this ropes as I wanted. First I used triple element on each end, which I joined with the heart clasp. It looked ok, but the bracelet was to long for my skinny wrist. I had to remove this element and fix it with rings only ant this was FUN!! I spend about a half an hour to put 3 little rings + clasp ring in another little ring and clench it before they slip out. TWO times 🙂 Now the bracelet is a little bit to tight and I have a problem to fasten the clasp, but decided to wear it for some time and check if the ropes stretch a little before changing anything.
The bracelet was complimented a couple of times, while I was wearing it 🙂 It matches my summer tops, so I hope to wear it more later or.. buy some matching clothes earlier 😉
The ropes are crocheted with 5 TOHO 8/0 beads, Opaque Lawender, Ceylon Grape Mist and Opaque Light Beige.
It looks like I only crochet with beads now, but it is not true at all. I am also making a set of 4 hand fans for a lovely bride from Ireland and her bridesmaids. I agree with her, that hand fans are great alternative to flowers, especially if the wedding is going to be in Spain 🙂 I hope to show you the fans in my next post.
And now, thanks for your visit and to the next post 🙂
