Crazy Fairy treasury

September 22, 2010

It seems that I got cold and at the moment I´m pretty sick and tired. I wrapped myself into a big cozy blanket and made a hot cup of tea. I used all my teabags today, it means that I have drunk almost 12 cups of tea. 😯

Few minutes ago I made another treasury. I just tried to be more creative. I put all my favorite items, fine art photos and colours together…and I got a beautiful mess.

Colored feathers

August 17, 2010

I found these coloured feathers and I thought: ” What should I do with them?”  Well…maybe trying to do some jewellery out of them later.

But at the moment, I´ll just enjoy them as background decorations.

Made with pink onyx and yellow jade beads

Long playful earrings inispired by seashells

Made with turkish blue chalcedony and milky opal bead

New August collection

August 9, 2010

Now I will share some of my new goodies with you. As you can see, I love to use light bright sparkling colours, especially I like to use opal stone, it´s my favourite.

But I also adore darker colours. A friend of mine who is a fashion designer said that black will be always in fashion…she´s right. Black absorbs light and is hands-down the most stylish and timeless color in the world of fashion.

I use:

  • glass beads
  • semi-precious stones
  • gold/silver plated metal
  • coloured metal

 

Lightbox

August 2, 2010

So today I made my first lightbox. I used a big cardboard box and a calque. Lightbox can be very helpful if you want to get simple and effective pictures. It provides light diffusion and a uniform background against which to place your piece. You can put some daylight lamps outside the box and lighten your box outside through the calque so the light inside the box would no be too sharp. If you head the lamp directly on your pieces, the light will be too sharp and then some ugly shadows are the result.

Here is the example lightbox picture with my handmade bracelet .

Well it is quite OK but I have to say that I still prefer scattered sunlight like on the picture below.

This picture was taken in a large studio. We have there a large spacious windows with white blinds. Because it was a very sunny day, I let the blinds down, so the light was soft but still bright for taking photos.

If you want to make your own lightbox then you can find a tutorial HERE!!!
