New Collection Begins...

It's true! It's the beginning of the new collection. Inspiration came and I created a little sample motif I can build a collection from. Let's hope the inspiration stays a while. Here's a little intro for the materials I'll use:

Antique Prosser beads in gorgeous coral pink color.
These are from Briare, France.
These are new handmade lamp worked beads. I used similar red
in my last brooch. The blue ones also have colorful glass drops
with sparkly aventurine.
Estonia, mdmButiik, designer jewelry
Here are the main colors together. Very sweet and feminine
don't you think?
Tõsi ta on! Siin on uue kollektsiooni algus. Inspiratsioonist tekkis proovitööna motiiv, millest saab ehitada terve kollektsiooni. Loodan, et inspiratsiooni veel jätkub. Siin on piltidel välja toodud kasutatavad materjalid. Väga magus ja naiselik, kas pole?

Jewellery Challenge: Bridal Hair Comb in Silver Finish

Here's the result of the jewellery challenge. A bridal hair comb in silver finish. I used vintage glass pearls, tiny seed beads and Swarovski rhinestones.
This comb is available as special request via email. See more from Etsy shop: Hair Accessories.

Siin on väljakutse tulemus. Pruudi juuksekamm hõbedase viimistlusega. Kasutasin vintage klaaspärleid, väikeseid seemnehelmeid ning Swarovski kristalle.
Selline juuksekamm on ainult eritellimusel (kirjuta). Vaata ka teisi juukse aksessuaare Etsyst.

Red & Green Brooch

Here's that custom made brooch I finished. Beautiful handmade bead in the center, Czech round glass beads around with metal flowers and red crystals.
Person who got it as a gift was wearing green skirt and red cardigan that day. Feedback was very positive :)

Siin on tellitud pross. Kaunis käsitöö helmes keskel, ümmargused Tšehhi klaashelmed ümberringi koos metallist lillede ja kristallidega.

Kingisaaja kandis tol päeval rohelis seelikut ja punast kampsunit. Tagasiside oli positiivne :)

Jewellery Challenge

Oh well... I have to tell you something.
It seems to me that I'm kind of getting too comfy with this jewellery making. I'm lucky enough to have custom orders and that's always good for keeping me sharp. And I've had great time with the brooches and hair combs in particular this time. But summer is usually more quiet and I'm thinking that I need to prepare myself a challenge.

I have some findings in silvery finish but it hasn't been enough for me to make them into jewellery. Feeling I need a little push? Here it goes then... How about making my most popular hair comb in silvery finish? Maybe nothing comes of it and it will end just as some other projects I started. My subscribers already know some of those :)



Niisiis... Mul on vaja midagi selgitada.
Paistab, et olen ennast liiga mugavalt tundma hakanud seoses ehete valmistamisega. Õnneks olen saanud tellimustöid, mis aitavad kätt pulsil hoida. Ning seekord olen täiega nautinud eriti just prosside ja dekoratiivsete kammide meisterdamist. Aga suvi on tavaliselt rahulikum ja ma mõtlen, et peaksin ennast varustama mõne väljakutsega.

Mul on mõned ehtedetailid hõbedase viimistlusega, aga millegipärast pole neist ehteid tulnud. Äkki on vaja väikest tõuget? Olgu siis nii... Mis oleks, kui teeksin oma kõige populaarsema juuksekammi hõbedase viimistlusega? Võimalik, et sellest ei tule midagi välja nagu nii mõnegi projektiga, mida olen alustanud. Need, kes on registreerinud end mdmButiigi infokirja, teavad mõnda sellist juba :)

Vintage Style Jewelry in Progress

Sometimes the best and worst thing is the same. Making an ordered piece that will be a gift. The person who ordered doesn't know what it should look like or what color it could be... Working out the color scheme can be pretty tricky, considering I have never seen the person who receives it. It's scary not knowing what colors to use but quite interesting as well. It's like a detective work, asking questions that reveals what way to go.

I like that these handmade lamp-worked beads
are not too bright nor dark red.

It has speckles of aventurine that shimmers like fools gold.

Trying to figure out what bronze colored seed beads to use...


Mõnikord on kõige hirmutavam ja põnevam asi üks ja see sama. Hakkan tegema tellitud ehet, mis läheb kingituseks. Tellija ei tea, millist ehet tahab ja isegi mitte värvi... Värvigamma valimine võib osutuda päris keeruliseks, sest ise pole selle kingituse kandjat isegi kaugelt mitte näinud. Natuke hirmus on tööga alustada aga samas ka väga põnev. See on natuke nagu detektiivi töö, küsimuste abil välja selgitada, mis suunas liikuda.
