Summer Is The Sea / Лятото е море

The Summertime challenge on Art Jewelry Elements brought back memories of groups of children roaming around small seaside towns in the summer with imagination as their only toy! For me, it was the happiest time of the year. So I signed up right away! 
Предизвикателството Лято (Summertime)  на Art Jewelry Elements съживи спомена за групички деца, обикалящи малките морски градчета през лятото, въоръжени единствено с въображение вместо играчки. Това бяха най-щастливите мигове от детството ми. Записах се без да се замисля дори.

Treasure Island Necklace / Колие "Островът на съкровищата" 


I wanted to make my own art pendant with sea glass and wire but different from the ones so far (check out the sea glass tag on the left sidebar). This was my inspiration (by Mary Tucker). I went with a more organic look - Figure-8 weave on eight pieces of wire, spaced unevenly and not straightened. I wove a boat shape and placed small pieces of sea glass inside. A also added Swarovski pearls and a Swarovski crystal. 
Исках да направя авторска висулка с тел и морско стъкло, но по-различна от досегашните ми (вижте публикациите с етикет "морско стъкло" в лявата лента). Това беше вдъхновението (автор: Mary Tucker). Оплетох осем парчета тел, като нито ги изправих предварително, нито внимавах за разстоянието между тях за по-естествена визия. Получи се нещо като лодка и поставих в нея морски стъкълца. Добавих перли Сваровски и кристал Сваровски.

By Тhe Beach Necklace / Колие "На морския бряг"


Still a captive of childhood memories, I made a tribal talisman necklace with an art bead by DreamsAndElements and a shell I had polished and cut. The blue bead is sea sediment jasper with gold color inclusions. It reminds me how we made necklaces with beach finds :)
Все още в плен на детските спомени, направих едно "племенно" колие-талисман с авторско мънисто на DreamsAndElements във формата на раковина и изрязана и полирана от мен мида. Синьото мънисто е океански яспис с допълнително златисто оцветяване. Напомня за дрънкулките, които си правехме като деца от морски находки :)

    1. Thank you, Niky! I'm a little obsessed with sea glass and try to fit it everywhere in my designs :) Wire wrapping is addictive, too, especially when you're a novice (like me) and experiment with it!
