Blue Circle Brooch

Aeg lendab pöörasel kombel. Teen ruttu selle postituse, muidu ei tea, millal jälle mahti saab.

Selle prossi tegin Tšehhoslovakkia piklikest klaaskividest ning tillukestest swarovski blue opal kristallidest. Pisut tumedamad sileda pinnaga poolläbipaistvad klaaskivid on valmistatud okupeeritud Saksamaa US-tsoonis (1945-1949). Ehk siis on need ühed vanimad originaalpakendis kivid, mis mu kivikeste kollektsioonis on.

Vaadake seda metallplaati, mille panin prossi taha. Oi kuidas ma ootasin seda tellimust, pildil olid need ju väga ilusad. Ja need on ka päris elus väga ilusad. Õnnetuseks on neile väga keeruline traadiga prossinõela kinnitada, nii tuli kasutada liimi. Liim on tegelikult väga tugev, ent sellega jändamine üks paras peavalu (tuleb segada kokku kahest komponendist ja kuivab päris kiirelt).

Time goes by so quickly. I'll make this quick post, never know when I get another chance.

I made this brooch with Czechoslovakia blue navettes and vintage swarovski "blue opal" chatons. These darker blue glass stones with smooth surface were made in occupied Germany US-zone (1945-1949). So these are one of the oldest stones in my collection that I have in original package.

Look at the stamped filigree plate. How I waited these to arrive, they looked so pretty in picture. And they sure are pretty. Unfortunately it's too difficult to attach a pin needle with wire to them so I had to use glue. The glue is really strong but a real head ache to use (at least for me), I have to make a mix of two components and it hardens so quickly.

Oi kui kena! Kas seda liimi võibki kasutada ka metallist detailide kinnitamisel? Hmm..äkki mul oleks ka seda tarvis. :D

Thanks, Christina!

Lucy, see liimib kõike asju kõigi külge (klaas, metall, plastmass, portselan-savi jne). Hea ja vastupidav, ent jubejube tüütu.
