This summer, the first under Karboojeh’s sky, is full of new ideas. Handmade Jewelry and home accessories make the headlines. Here are some samples of what I’ve been working on lately…
Beaded Home Accessories
I’m in love with butterflies. They are “happy” creatures. I like to think of them as messengers of happiness and cuteness from up above. I tied the knot between two loves of mine: butterflies and beads. All my life I wanted to make beaded things, so I started a “beaded butterflies series.” This one is the first one I made (it has a clear nylon string tied to its ears to help you hang it wherever you desire).
Beaded butterflies to hang in your room, kitchen or doorway, are my latest obsession.
I finally learned how to make crochet flowers. The one above has a silk thread hanging loose from two beautiful twine and silk flowers. These are the latest fad in “vintage” fashion.
I’m having great fun mixing different kinds of beads to create a single work of jewelry art.
This piece has more than one kind of bead, to name a few: Indian beads (or so the salesman said), faux pearls, ceramic beads, Indian metallic findings, bone beads, and coral. And yes, the center piece is made of a stunning coral bead from Italy.
Ok, this is it for now, I wish you a blessed summer,ya’ll :)
