Meet the Coquette!

My latest creation, a fabric choker, consists of a big white/red flower with a gorgeous vintage button in the middle, to be tied with a simple but romantic satin ribbon in a fascinating shade of red:

My latest creations were born in a warm spring afternoon, when I noticed some fabric scraps near my mother’s sewing machine. Their colors were very fashionable, so I decided to create some accessories which would totally boost my spring/summer look.

I mixed them with vintage buttons and beads…here is the result!

You will find these necklaces and rings in my shop very soon: www.wakamesalada.etsy.com

Campanula - lace earrings

Here is another funny way to recycle. The lace I used to create these faboulous long earrings was taken from an old skirt of mine; I made two wraps hold by a bead cap and the long chain ending with a swarovski crystal added a classy final touch.

You can find them in my Etsy shop.

During the last weeks I discovered some black lace in a corner in my sewing machine and I decided to make some jewelry experiments. I thought the best way to use it was covering some custom buttons with felt in different colours and a square of black lace. The effect was so romantic and lovely that I tried so many jewels as possible.

Black Lace Brooches

Black Lace Rings

Black Lace ear studs

Hairpins

Necklace

cowl decorations

Don’t you think they give a very romantic touch to any winter look? You can find all these items and more in my store.
