A beaded kitty pendant. For those of you familiar with beading a bezel around a rivoli crystal, this is easy (and fun!) to do.
Beaded Owl necklace, the Karlyn Owl, came about thanks to my sister, Christina Gillett. While on holidays, she snuck an owl of an idea into my head: she asked me for some owl jewellery.
Some years ago my mom gave me a jade bracelet. Or rather, she re-gifted me the jade bracelet. Apparently it was from my childhood. When I was tiny. So of course I am now way too big to wear it.
I stored it away these last few years, thinking one day I will get round to “doing something” about it. But a walk with cancer has taught me that one should store less, enjoy and use more!
The childhood jade bracelet is made with symbolic Jade round pieces, encased within and link-chained with 24K gold. (24K gold is very yellow, expensive, and very popular in Malaysia – which is where I originally hailed from). Gold is not a metal I often work with. Which added to my procrastination period.
However I have finally “done something” to the childhood jade bracelet. It is now both a necklace or a wrap around bracelet. And I love it.
Little India necklace takes on its vibrantly happy colours from the actual Little India in Singapore. There is a block or more (?) of the most beautiful and most colourful terrace houses in the area called Little India.
Flower Too necklace. I seldom do flowers and dainty stuff like that. But this is really a Flowers too necklace. This beaded crochet necklace is sprinkled with little flowers, each with a sparkling center. All against a graduated background of blues.
Madhatter set consists of necklace and matching bangle. Those who have followed a few of my beaded crochet rope creations will have a very good idea why this set has been named Madhatter. (Also see later photos here for the necklace with the addition of funky dangles.)
