Turquoise Spiral Earring

Hello my readers! Here is a little DIY for you as I promised!



Tools and ingredients:
- Chain noise plies (wrapped with pliers)
- Wire cutter (cutters)
- 2 semi-precious stone beaded turqouse
- 1.5-2mm aluminum or copper wire
- 0.25 mm aluminum wire
- 50 cm 3-6 inch cutting chain cuts
- 2 piece bronze hangers for the ear


Step 1: Wrap the thick wire and make little spiral shape for the hanger that we will add the chain in the end.

Step 2: Wound around the thinner wire and start at the bottom of the spiral wire; after that make a good sustain for the pearl.

Step 3: With the thin wire sustain introduce the pearl and adjust the wire frame.

Step 4: After you introduce the pearl in the frame, start making a new spiral form design in the bottom.

Step 5: At the bottom of the spiral we introduce with a little help of the thin wire the

Step 6: the upper districts of the earring comes the wire clip.

While writing this tutorial I have realized that you can do more with your own imagination with semi-precious or plastic pearls.

I prefer to use the semi-precious stones because of their pattern, color and light, some semiprecious pearls are too elegant but adding wire it makes it more daily wearable.

In each execution of the wire the design is modified so there is no pattern for this kind of preparation mode. The length of the chain is not stable you can use longer or shorter ones. The ending of the chain can be left like this ore you can add some pearls at the end.

The result is wonderful, you can use as a week day earring or an elegant accessory.

The dark queen of the forest...

The dark queen of the forest...


There is a story of Gods and people.

Back in the days when the world was ruled by gods and goddesses, was a queen who borne on this world with a face of a goddess to protect all the forests of the Earth. With time the gods lost their power, because humans turned their backs on them. They were simply forgotten.



The Queen of Forests remained to stay on this realm to protect the forests. She was hoping that humans would start to believe again. But with time humans started changing more and more, destroying and building anew. Creating a new environment more comfortable to them, not respecting the one already given: nature. Each cut in a three by the humans made her suffer greatly, day after day. She felt hopeless and powerless against these creatures. She became darker and angrier with time passing.





She promised that one day when the humans will cut off the last trees she will raze and show her face to the world. “I, the Dark Queen of Forests, shall reveal my face and power to the world and I shall punish your children with endless pain to give back all the sufferance I felt all this time, with each cut in my precious trees. I shall let humans bleed out and watch them die like they did with my children.”


This story was created as an announcement for those who don’t protect the forests and green areas.

100 old lace


Hi everyone! When I was at Budapest with the ReMese program, they give us a tour in the Industrial Art Museum where they were exhibiting 110 old laces. When I entered in the room I felt like dreaming so many handmade laces. I started documenting about the execution and history of the lace and now I will show you my little dream.



Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand. The holes can be formed via removal of threads or cloth from a previously woven fabric, but more often open spaces are created as part of the lace fabric. Lace-making is an ancient craft. True lace was not made until the late 15th and early 16th centuries. (WIKI)

Embroidery of garments was universal in the middle ages. To obtain the desired effect, gold or silver thread and silk were applied to contrasting colors  Nowadays lace is often made with cotton thread, although linen and silk threads are still available. Manufactured lace may be made of synthetic fibres.

There are many types of lace, classified by how they are made.



In the late 16th century there was a rapid development in the field of lace. There was an openwork fabric where they achieved combinations of open spaces and dense textures form designs. These forms of lace were dominant in both fashion as well as home d├ęcor during the late 1500s. For enhancing the beauty of collars and cuffs, needle lace was embroidered with loops and picots.

Lace techniques: 







Since the 16th century, needlepoint lace has epitomized luxury and elegance. Although it most likely developed in Italy for ecclesiastical use, it was soon exported throughout Europe and produced in several places. Needle lace became an essential part of every 17th century court costume -- male and female -- and elaborate ruffs, collars and cuffs appeared in endless European portraits. Its most serious competition came from the bobbin lace of Flanders, and that primarily in the 18th century.

Back in those days lace was more personalized and unique. Women used lace as a character of their personality, if the lace had complicated in forms or design it meant that person had fortune.




The design of the Lace always followed the prevalent style of the ornamentation of the day. Lace works are different by execution and time, like: linen and embroidery cut work, darned netting, drawn work, knotted lace, plaited lace, etc.

Wire Wrap Tutorial: Carnelian copper pendant

Hey guys! It's Friday :D and for this weekend the SM crew prepared for you a special technique to make the weekend more lovely.


Tools

- Chain Noised Peeler- Wire Cutter
- 1,5 mm-2 mm brown painted , half hard copper wire
- 0,25 mm brown painted, half hard copper
- Scissors
- Semi-precious stones: Carnelian
- 1 m: bronze color chain

The tick wire gives the form to the medal and the thin wire makes it more stable, so the design is more accurate. You need to use noised chain to make this form from the wire.

This particular medal design will be unique in every way, because you are executing it by your own imagination.

A tip for execution: you don’t have to cut down the wire when you’re making the medal, just keep adding new forms over and over again. When you're finished up the process you can cut down the surplus.



Process:

1. Usually I use 1 m of wire for the medal
2. At first you have to do the circle for the chain
3. Make the frame and put the stone in it. The thin wire is wound around by the tick wire.
4. All the wire is arranged by the stone to give solidity.
5. With help from the thin wire you need to fix the stone in the form.
6. After you finished up fixing the stone you can form spiritual symbols or signs on the rock with the thin wire.
7. Put the chain in the medal and job done.
8. Set your imagination free for the process.
9. Enjoy!

Daalarna


Hey guys! Have you heard of Daalarna? :D If you had, then you are from Hungary possibly. 

She is a Hungarian designer and last month she had her show. I was honored when I got the invitation from Beango. We were standing in the front row to admire the nice colors and garments. Daalarna presented bride and bridesmaid dresses and underwear.

The inspiration for this collection was the 60s. She wanted to show the usual bikini and corsage from that age. Her point of view was interesting based on the color combination. She used silver, blue and brown for example. Studying the form of the dresses, she showed simplicity and sexuality.

The collection showed the beauty and form of the women body mostly by using transparent material and lace for rendering femininity and sexuality. The basic materials were silk and lace.



The color palette was mostly cold when it came about the bride, but the bridesmaid dresses were full of hot and playing colors which showed the balance and the character between the bride and bridesmaid.

I felt the game between sexuality, personality and love, just like in the real life. The dresses were poorly executed instead, but I was wowed by the message and garment so I didn't concentrate on the quality.




















After the show I met Hungarian bloggers and we talked about fashion blogging mostly...but about this I will write in my next post... so stay tuned!
