LAST RUN TILL CHRISTMAS – 8 weeks left

Hi everyone,

Only 8 weeks left before the Holidays! Do you feel the rush already? I certainly do! Still have no gifts, don’t know yet how we will be surfing between families this year, am rushing to finish all card orders for Christmas and I am busy preparing your christmas classes… Oh yes, I forgot, I have several jewelry orders for the holidays too. Only 8 weeks left, don’t know yet how to get it all organized! Anyway, to help you prepare the Holidays, I did create a bunch of Christmas cards for you (ready to ship), have 3 Christmas classes ready to go, prepared workshops*, and made some changes to my site. The changes will be up next week and I’ll give you all the information you need in a next post! But for now, lets check one of the clean and simple Christmas cards I made this week:

black and white jewelry set

Hi bloggers,A very quick post for today. This is a necklace with matching earrings I made a while back. The picture might not be the best one I ever made, but I hope you see enough to appreciate the beauty in it. As you might see, this one is made of polymer clay beads and black onyx chips and the links are silver plated. It is an everyday jewelry set, which I appreciate as I don’t like spending hours choosing out the best fit to my clothing. Just the same set the whole week, great!

Blue wishes

Hi everyone,

I know it has been far to long. Life here in Europe is so much more stressing and time consuming than it was when we lived in Canada. But I had a brake the last two weeks (can tell you that I needed it!!!) and this gave me some time to sit at my crafting table. Several cards are made and I’ll be posting them soon, but today I wanted to start with a challenge card. I want to enter this one for my old time favourite: the paper players and for another challenge blog where I like to participate: freshly made sketches. For the paper players it had to stay to blues (midnight muse and pool party) and white, I immediately wanted to make a winter card. The freshly made sketches offered a square card design with one layer and one focal point on the lower right corner. The sketch forms the basis of my design, although I did not keep the card square. I also added a border behind my focal point as otherwise I had the impression it was floating around alone on my card. Hope you like it!

See you soon!

Caged cat eye bead bracelet and earrings

Hi Folks!

I am back with one of my latest creations. I haven’t much time this eve, so I’ll be short. I made the cages (wire wraps) surrounding the beads with silver plated wire. Of course I had to make some earrings to go along with it too. Hope you like it!

Warm butterfly

Hi everyone,

This is one of a series of cards I made in june. I didn’t have time yet to post it, but here I am. I needed some inspiration for an order back then and went back to pinterest to get some. After half an hour of surfing I got enough of it and ended up by CASEing one of DeAnn Rauzi’s card. This is my shot at it:

Special order : coral necklace

Hi peeps,

Time for me to show off some jewelery. You may have noticed that I started posting my jewelery creations again. My friends have been asking to put my latest creations online, so they could keep up. I have a lot of orders lately (not complaining at all !), and it takes me so much time that I can’t write my posts anymore. But here I am with the third one :

IMG_8387

I made this necklace as a complement to the coral bracelet (see this previous post). One of my clients ordered the coral bracelet, a pair of earrings and a matching necklace for his wife’s birthday. So I made this three row necklace. I used several sizes of red seed beads, coral beads and silver plated beads and findings. The picture is not very good, but I had no time to make nice pictures as I was already late on schedule to deliver the package to my client (I luckily got just in time for her birthday), but I hope you get the idea !

Have a nice day !

Chevrolet Impala birthday card

Hi everyone,

Today I share with you an older card I made during winter. I had an order for a masculine card. The challenge was that I had to include the fact that the person would receive a Chevrolet Impala for his birthday. I used the “in stiches” wheel onto green SU! cardstock to imitate a car wheel print.

I got the Impala sketches online, printed one on white cardstock and colored it in with copic markers.IMG_7644As you can see on the above picture, I used a Z-fold for this card. The sentiment says “happy birthday” and is Stampin’up.

Hope you like it!

Pink wire wrapped bracelet : case study

Hi everyone,

I encountered this kind of bracelets several times on Etsy and google images and thought I could give it a shot too. I had some difficulties to figure it out in the beginning, but I think I finally made it:)! This is a pink stone version of the wire wrapped bracelet. You can find the different versions in my etsy store…IMG_8394 IMG_8393Hope you liked it…

Chunky style necklace and matching earrings : Case study

IMG_8402I found this nice necklace on pinterest and wanted to make something of it. Although the temptation was big to completely copy the design, I thougth it was better to make a different version while keeping some details. So I kept the big chunky bead in the middle and the part with the multiple rows. I however made a longer version of the necklace as I thought this would better fit with my design and completely changed the set of beads used.

IMG_8404The beads are : yellow agate, labradorite chips, tiger eye beads and miracle beads. They are intercalated by different colors of seed beads. Can you image that the necklace (and its earrings) were sold one week later ?
