Firenze Necklace

This necklace was not the first on my to-do-list, but then a friend persuaded me to make it. Now I am happy that I did. It is suitable for daily use.

The pattern has been written by Yvonne King and you find it in the Beadwork Magazine February 2014.

Secret Garden Bracelet

The "Secret Garden Bracelet" by Penny Dixon published in  Beadwork Magazine February 2015 is an ambitious, complex beading-pattern, which I enjoyed very much.  
The specifications for the materials are correct. The drawings and explanations are significant.

Unfortunately I only could wear it  twice, then the subbase separated from the upper part because the thread broke. I will use a double thread when I repare it.

Singapore meets Varna

Last year I bought some rectangular shaped stone-beads in Varna. Seeing them I had the pattern of the "Imperial Necklace" by Manek in my mind.
Of course I adapted the design to my ideas.

The necklace "Chrysanthenum" by Manek was my project for the beading meeting in Bavaria. I had so much to look and talk, that I did not have enough time to finish it there.
After seeing an example in nature, I knew, that my necklace only will have three flowers.
Here it is:

A colleague of my husband ordered a necklace for his wife for the silver wedding. The requirement was; simply but with heart. Here is the result:

And, where is the heart? Look here:
The necklace was the burner :-)

Change of server for my shop

Because I was not content with my previous online-shop, it changed now to another server. It still will be refilled in the next weeks.
You find the new shop under the old address:

There are separate explanations in Spanish, English and German for the products.
The rest of the page is in Spanish. I think, it explains itself. If not, do not hesitate to contact me. I will try to change it, if it is possible.
There are no automatic downloads for pattern, because of the new law for downloads in the EU. After completion of payments the buyer will get the pattern in an email. The Spanish VAT (21%) will be applied.
All patterns in the new shop are totally reviewed. There will be more kits and finished jewelry.

Have a look!

Lady Madeleine

This pendant is a design by Manek.

But I did not like the strap, so I made my own croching.
