Post and promote - Week 2

Here we again promoting each others shops from the CAST Team!!
Check these out!

Sue Anderson, who is a grandma with two grandsons and who is a firm believer that Jesus is her saviour takes so many wonderful photographs!!
She would love to promote this one but there are so many pretty ones to choose from. I specially like the one with a blue house, but go yourself and pick the one you like the most.

Now meet Krafterskorner, from Missouri. She is trying to graduate from college debt free, so she could use a hand (or two). Her card is beautiful and affordable but she has many different things in her shop, mostly crocheted items.

Judy from AngelsNEverlasting has worked with dried flower arrangements for many years and she is offering this so unique item to decorate your home.

Heidi from Snow6154 is the loveliest!!
I am already a customer of hers and I am a very happy one!
I love many items from her shop but I would like to promote this beautiful stone. It is a quite large Brazil Onix multi-colour Agate pendant bead.

And finally Sheila from Sewfaithful, makes such cute dolls. They are delightful! 
Sheila learned to sew from her grandmother and she keeps learning new techniques to improve her sewing.
This is one in my "Things to learn" list. Sewing. 

Summer of colour - "Andy" bracelet

It seems that I never get to post my entry for the "Summer of colour" event hosted by the sweet Kristin from Twinkle, Twinkle before the weekend.

This time we had to work with reds.
I have always liked red. Red is a colour that has always been linked with fire, passion, love, and I look great in red!!
But actually, when I read that we had to create with this colour I suddenly realized that I didn't have many beads on this colour, in fact I only had Red Jasper, some crackled crystals and a single enamelled red bead with a flower on it.
(Mental note: Get more red beads)

I didn't have a lot to choose from and as I am trying to get creative with all the bracelets I am making during this event, so they are all different styles or types of bracelets, it got me thinking on my yellow bracelet.
I haven't really used leather on my designs, and I have always loved black and red together. I guess that that's the reason why I have so much black jewellery.

This time around I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Many strings of thin black leather with lose beads so you could accommodate them as you wished.
I used the red Jasper beads combining them with that single enamelled bead I had and some Murano glass beads in a yellowy silver kind of colour.
I got the big rectangular one from Andrew Thornton, therefore the name of this bracelet.

As for the winged item I used a butterfly in sterling silver hanging from the handmade clasp in a hook shape so you can adjust the size.

And also as with all the other bracelets for this "Summer of colour" event, this lovely bracelet will be for sale on my Etsy shop.


Parece que no hay manera de poder escribir antes del fin de semana sobre las pulseras que hago para el evento "The summer of colour" que organiza Kristin de Twinkle, Twinkle.

Esta semana tenemos que trabajar con la gama de los rojos.
Siempre me ha gustado este color.
El Rojo siempre se ha asociado al fuego, la pasión, el amor y además ¡me sienta de maravilla!

Pero curiosamente, cuando leí que tendríamos que trabajar con este color me dí cuenta de que no tengo muchas cuentas en este color. De hecho tan solo tenía Jaspe rojo, algunas cuentas de cristal craquelado y una cuenta roja esmaltada con una florecita.
(Recordatorio: Compra cuentas rojas)

Lo cierto es que no tenía mucho donde elegir y como estoy intentando hacer cosas creativas y nuevas con las pulseras que hago para este evento, empecé a pensar la que hice de color amarillo.
Hasta entonces no había realmente utilizado cuero en mis diseños y siempre me ha gustado la combinación de rojo y negro. Supongo que por eso utilzo tantas joyas en color negro.

esta vez sabia exactamente lo que quería hacer.
Varias tiras de fino cuero negro con cuentas sueltas de manera que te las pudieses acomodar a tu gusto.
Al fianl utilicé el Jaspe rojo combinándolo con la cuenta de esmalte y con algunos cristales Murano en color amarillento plateado.
El cristal grande y rectangular lo conseguí de Andrew Thornton, de ahí el nombre de la pulsera.

En cuanto al artículo con alas he utilizado una mariposa en plata de ley que cuelga del cierre an forma de gancho de manera que puedas ajustar la pulsera.

Al igual que con el resto de las otras pulseras creadas para este evento, podrás encontrasr esta preciosa pulsera en mi tienda de Etsy y también en la de Artesanio.
