Handmade amethyst earrings with silver wire

Karboojeh Handmade Amathyst Earrings with Silver karboojeh-handmade-amathyst-earrings-with-silver-full

Hello all… it’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. It’s been a busy month, really! So I am here today to share a few handmade jewelry items I made a while back with silver wire and gemstones.

This amethyst earring pair is one of my favorites.

I made this earring as part of a silver wire collection, here’s a group photo:

karboojeh handmade silver gemstone antique silver jewelryI love amethyst, its purple/lavender color is surprisingly a neutral that goes with so many other color combinations.

There is something quite majestic about amethyst; you feel it’s very much suited to sit on Royal Crowns, due to the way it reflects wisdom, nobility, royalty, and leadership. The fact that amethyst shades are usually darkish and subtle, I feel people who love this gemstone are usually the wise, deep type. They’re not flashy, since amethyst is a mediator between earth and sky, with colors that can very much be found at dawn, or on the surface of the ocean – in a degree or two of amethyst.

I leave you with amethyst today; more gemstones to come in the future hopefully,

take care…

Inspiration Board: Lace Tape to decorate your life

20 Oct

Lace Tape - via oboiler.com

I just got back from a web journey over at decor8, specifically at a post celebrating Lace Tape. decor8 asked: “I’m curious… any ideas for using this tape in creative ways OUTSIDE of the intended purpose?”. Here is what I came up with:

  • Decoration: I think this kind of tape can be used to decorate plain note/sketch books, which then can be given away as gifts.
  • Stenciling: it’s also a cool way to stencil a boring pen, by wrapping a thin piece of tape around it, and you got yourself a stylish pen that makes you want to jot down ideas.
  • Deco: Let’s say you have a big boring mirror with no frame, no nothing; I think the lace tape can give it an oomph for a frame, and if you don’t like it use your hair dryer to peel it off.
  • Jewelry-making: I can see myself using this tape in my jewelry in small dozes, maybe behind a memory glass pendant.
  • DIY: and of course, a torn out old book that has all the good recipes can use a nice binding with this sticky lace.
  • Jewelry display and packaging: And, for handmade jewelry crafters, like moi, this tape is a heaven-sent tool for nicer jewelry display and packaging. You can just stick a piece on a cardboard, pierce it twice, insert your handmade earrings, and you got yourself a nicely packaged jewelry item for sale. And, you’re using DIY, cheap, and creative ways to brand your stuff.

And here is a testimony of the last idea I listed… see how a simple tape can transform the look of a plain tag?

The lace can give tags and jewelry packaging a Victorian feel, especially if you’re using vintage pieces in your designs, like I do. The sky is the limit!

Look at this fun pattern… this can look great behind a pair of earrings, as part of a handmade packaging combo. I think one can play around with the Lace (& sisters) Tape, and it’s only for $7 a roll! In my part of the world, we don’t even hear of such things, so I would be grateful if someone out there would send me a Lace Tape as a token of friendship :)
