Bib-style necklaces are one of my favourite styles as they are relatively easy to make, being essentially simple bead embroidery, but really deliver on the wow factor. #Swarovski, #Createyourstyle,#make&selljewellerymagazine
Air blue opal and fuchsia contrast beautifully with the clear crystal fancy stones. Full instructions are in the May edition of Make and Sell Jewellery magazine.
Finally finished the last piece for the Swarovski Launch and all ready to go. This year the main theme is Traces of Time with four sections: classic (faded memories), romantic (sunset rituals), progressive (vivid moments) and glamour (forgotten dreams). Can you tell which design comes from which theme? If you get a chance next week do come along to see the collection before it gets into the shops – I’ll be demonstrating on all days.
I’m just finishing adding the Fancy Stones and beads around the micro macrame to create the bib design. The piece has been designed to showcase the Romantic trend for the launch of the new Tangerine colour of Swarovski Elements. It works well with light silk, rose gold and these fabulous petrol blue pearls.
I’m a big fan of micro macrame and just love the way the Superlon colours blend through – lets you choose to match the beads. I’m working on this design and plan to add Fancy Stones to create a bib style necklace.
