‘Sup?

I always liked paper jewelry and for the last few days I’ve been working on creating some on my own.

If you remember the small heart shaped earrings i made last time find that I made some improvements and it made me so happy seeing how they turned out. I used heavy paper, watercolors and copper wire. I’m not gonna get into all the tools i also used ‘cuz I don’t wanna bore anyone.

Let me know what you think. I’ll go back to work now. Gee, ain’t I excited?!

Have a great week-end and tons of fun.

I decided to get back on the blog and show you what i’ve been doing when I wasn’t writing. One step at a time. Today is feathers-time. ‘Cuz it’s summer and it’s hot as hell in “beautiful” Ploiesti, I really would love myself some wings to fly away. No wings yet, but very pretty feather accesories.

Check out the pictures below and tell me what you think.

Monday was a bright day

‘Suppenin? (i know this is not a word)

You don’t know that, but I live in one bedroom apartment facing east, and although I’m not much of a fan of Ploiesti (the city I live in) I love my home because it gets a lot of natural light and in the morning I get to see the sunrise from my bed. Yes, I am one of those annoyingly morning persons. See what I’m talking about?

I got carried away, I wanted to tell you about what I worked on yesterday. Sooo, yesterday was a beautiful, sunny day and it inspired me to make some “rought cut” pendants. I’m a sucker for geometric shapes and I don’t know if you do, too, but I just looove them.

It all started with this tutorial I found on pinterest for the heart shaped earrings. You’ll find lovely tutorials on “Fall for DIY” blog, btw. Check it out! I loved the ideea of simplicity and when I saw how pretty they look on my ears I just wanted to make more small simple earrings. That brought me to the small circles and triangle earrings (they hardly are triangles because it’s difficult to get those angles when you use wire on such a small scale). I will surely make more shapes, don’t worry, I will keep you up-dated.

With geometry on my mind I made the pendants you see below. I hope you enjoy, because I had a blast making them, unlike my neighbours who had to hear the hammering all day. Don’t worry, no one complained yet.

XOXO,

Sigrid

Who am I, but who are you?

Hi!

I am Sigrid and as I have a lot of free time on my hands and a great love for handmade I thougt I should start bloggin’ about it and see whether you, guys, like whatever I make or not. Another reason is that I hope someone will actually follow this blog and I know that will keep me motivated to hand-make further and improve my creations. Hihi!

I always had a passion for design and art, but didn’t trust my senses as a child and I therefore didn’t go through with an art education. Later on, I realized that loving what you do for a living is one of the most important things and had a change of heart. I will not bore you with this anymore, I am sure I will get into it another time.

Now, I’m gonna stop at my newest obsession, wire and bead jewelry. Last week I bought, for the first time, some copper wire and some pretty colourful beads. I must tell you it’s not that easy to work with it and you also need a couple of tools, from pliers to madrel, metal block and hammer. The good part is, when you’re a crafter you will improvise and replace some of these tools with stuff you already have in the house.

Below you can see my first wire jewelries. I am happy to say none of my nails turned purple as I did hammer my fingers a couple of times (and no, I did not cry). I will post more soon.

Have a good one & and may joy and creativity light your way.

P.S: I know I am not much of a writer, hopefully I’ll get better as I go.
