Hello friends, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Are you all excited about the new week’s possibilities? I finished some of the pieces I started last week and I’m excited to show you all what’s new this week.I love working with filigree elements. There’s something timelessly pretty about them. I’m fortunate enough to have filigree elements from the 40s/50s and this week’s jewelry features them.
First up is this long green themed necklace. The two focal beads are what I like to call crackle glass, they look almost like they have ice in them and they are a lovely mint green shade. I love dangles on a necklace and I think it goes really well with the filigree in the middle. The beads are all vintage from the 50s.
My collection is not complete without earrings and this week features twin pairs. The first pair features Italian red wedding cake beads from the beginning of the 20th century. Don’t you just love the trailings on these beads?
And I also have a blue pair of wedding cake beads, also from the beginning of the 20th century. I love the filigree dangle on this one, its from the early 50s.
I also made some bracelets and wouldn’t you know it, I stuck to the pink palette with the exception of one. I know, I know, I promise to start making bracelets in other colors the next time!
This first bracelet is a simple one featuring a lovely filigree element and two red crystal shaped beads. I had a few of these filigree links that I had used on a necklace but for some reason, I found a last one at the bottom of one of my bead boxes. I couldn’t figure out how to use it since it was all by itself, till I realized that it was perfect as a focal piece!
And here come the pink bracelets. In my defense, they’re all various shades of pink.
There’s this one in frosted matt shades and shapes. The long rectangular beads are Bohemian beads from the 50s while the others are French glass beads.
There’s a super simple one for those days when you just want to put something pretty on your wrist and be on your way.
And finally here is one in all shades of delicate blush. I love the color blush, there’s something really fresh and delicate about it.
Eh voila! Now tell me, which one is your favorite?
