My mothers present. it´s green aventurine in the middle.
My cousins two teenage doughters, gets theese embroiderys.It is in Fake leatherTheese pieces will not end up on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/NiwasSmycken until after Christmas :-)
Hope you all are having a great day.If you want to see more made by me please visit my Faebook page:https://www.facebook.com/NiwasSmycken?
Niwas, nice selection and variety. When I first looked at the last two bracelets, I first "saw" a pink and black camera.............. and I wanted one.......LOL. Those are very lovely and I am sure they will be appreciated. Now I have it in my mind to bead my camera. I had better take a break and go back to what I was working on and forget about a pink and black camera.
I am not sure the necklace is aquamarine, aquamarine is usually transparent. maybe chrysoprase or something like that which has that almost transparent look to it. Aquamarine is usually faceted, but there may be many grades of it, which I have not seen. Anyway, that is a lovely item also. Donna
D.M.Z thank you so much!! I can actually see the camera too after you told me please show us if you go through with beading you´r cameraThe stone is actually a little transparent, I could see "shadows" through it. but I´m going to look it up where i bought it anyway to be sure /niwa
Niwas, I recognize the sone in your pendant very well, as it is one of my absolute favourites. It is called green aventurine, and it will have a translucent cast to it. Aventurine is such a beautiful shade of green and I am absolutely insano over it! With the exception of Chartreuse, pea green and neon, I'm pretty much insano over pretty much any shade of green there is!(lol) It makes the green in my eyes stand out. But I'm not vain, not in the least. (lol)
I thought those bracelets wewre little cameras at first, too, and I thought, that's really clever! The fact that they're actually bracelets makes them more so. If I had those bracelets, I'd feel like Wonder Woman! As you may have already guessed though, the pendant's my favourite. They peyote is really cool!
thank you Val and yes you are right thats the name, looked it up yesterday.It is really beautiful and my mother is getting it for birthday present the 13 december.thinking of do a matching ring, but she doesn´t use rings that muchI´m getting a good feeling about the bracelets now. Its so hard with presents to teenage girls.
I think your cousins daughters will be very pleased with the bracelets.
Love the necklace too. Is the pendant made with beads or is it metal?
Niwas: wish I could say I was a ring perso, but I don't wear them all that often,either. I'm always afraid I'm going to lose them.
Yeah, I hear you about the gifts for eenagers. Fortunately, my teenage nieces want my jewelry, so that's a big help.
More bracelets, in fake leather.This have got lovely blue/purple metallic beads, but unfortunatly i couldn´t make them justice on the photo.they are really shiny & sparkly IRLwelcome to visit my Facebook page if you want http://www.facebook.com/NiwasSmycken
Indigo is such a pretty colour. Wish I could wear it, But it turns my complexion very ruddy. I still like it though. It's a lovely bracelet.
Comfortably settled in VA. Went into Occoquon today and knocked over the LBS. What a wonderful afternoon I had!
thank you Val, this was so much fun so here´s two moreOne purple, nobody likes purple eyh`????? I love purple!!!
and one christmas bracelet in red & gold coloured
Hey Niwas, they are all very pretty, the lilac i like the colors more and the bottom one i love the flowery design. i hope i get some leather in my hands too sooner or later, so that i can try something similar. your Black in Black one with the flower shell is still my favorite, that is saved or better say burned in my memory, as its so great, for a case i can try leather jewellery.
May the beads be with you!
Thank you Katrien i hope so too.It is a metal pendatn with a stone in the middle!!
Thank you so much Aunty Akoya!! I kept the black in black bracelet with the shell coin for my self and I´m wearing it almost every day with jeans and top.
You're evil! (lol) Why won't you make me one? Whiiiiiiine!(lol) Aren't I a good whiner?
