A couple more....

The first one is a flapper I made with black silky cord, magma and woven beads, Indian lampwork beads, and some large black stone beads. I can't remember what they are - they have a funny name. Initially, the necklace was for me (in case you hadn't noticed, I like black LOL), however my friend really liked it so it's reserved for her for my jewellery party next week.

Here you can see some of the beads in more detail. I love the silky quality of the woven beads next to the smooth gloss of the stones and Indian lampwork beads and the rough quality of the magma beads.
This bracelet is for my sister. She wanted something in turquoise. She hasn't seen it yet and I am not sure if she'll like it as it's quite unusual.

I've used gorgeous (real) turquoise hearts, turquoise shells in two sizes, little vintage golden roses with tiny red beads inside, red Magatama drops and sweet Vintage cherub charms on a bronze chain. Red and turquoise is one of my favourite combinations. Each colour makes the other more intense. The gold/bronze gives it a warm glow. Very different from another one I made (which I, again, made for myself and then ended up letting my friend have - the same friend as the one I mentioned above), although the colour combination is similar, but the chain and findings on that one are black plated.

Here's a picture of the other necklace if you're interested: Corazon (a couple of topics down from the top).


  1. Simply beautiful bracelet - reminds me of a Renaissance painting!

  2. Wow you've been buys Sybille!
    Lovely stuff-like the black beads they're really nice.
    I had your copper green heart bracelet on the other day!! :0))
