Handmade bead embroidery jewelry, presenting several techniques and materials from the beadworld
Inspired by the glamorous world of the theaters in the 1800’s…
This statement necklace is representing a variety of beading techniques, an explosion of mature nostalgic colors and surfaces. It has a green-purple-blue accent and I built three dimensional petals from beads on it… just like it is coming from another world! I love the demanding details – they speak for themselves. For me it is essential in a special jewelry to stand out even in the night: I hid starry beads all over it, it sparkles in every angle of light…
She is a unique piece of jewelry: I decorated it with Bloodstone and Onyx cabochons German Superduo beads, rhinestones, Japanese Matubo and matte iridescent Miyuki brick beads, Czech luster seed beads, glass beads, straw beads in different sizes, acrylic and hand-painted wooden beads, crystal beads and pearls, etc…
*Blood stone: “Bloodstone is a powerful healing stone used for thousands of years for its healing properties. It is often used to purify and detoxify the body. Great at grounding negative energy and cleansing the body, Bloodstone brings love into any situation and helps ground the negative energies surrounding that issue.”
*Black Onyx: “The myth of the origin of onyx says that the goddess Venus was resting on the banks of the Indus River. As she slept, Cupid used the point of one of his enchanted arrows to give her a manicure. The parings of her nails then fell into the waters of the sacred river. Since the nails were of heavenly origin, they sank to the river bottom and were metamorphosed into onyx.”
I hope you enjoy my work!
