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

Here are the steps I used – to make this sterling silver,  fabric and resin necklace
  • Hand fabricate different sized bezels and soldering tubes to the backs.
  • Use soft sterling silver wire, to go through the back and connect the pieces.
  • Fill the bezels with fabric remnants in varying colors and prints
  • Pour resin over the tops to create a glossy, glass-like effect.

Hi from Italy everybody!

As this is my very first post in this blog, I would like to start by introducing myself and the jewelry I create. I live in Milan, and I have a real passion for fabric and colors. This is why I love making jewels out of felt, cotton, ribbons and custom buttons. These I use to create necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets whose purpose is to add that funny, colorful touch to a pair of jeans or sometimes a serious look.

Light coral pink felt and floral tensha beads are the ingredients for this funny necklace.

I called my Jewelry line “Small things by WakameSalada” because I want my jewels to be that little something which makes people smile and makes every girl who wears it feel original, feminine and cheered up at the same time.

I would describe me as an observer. I keep an eye on which colors people like to wear and how they interprete it, and try to create something which can meet their needs without being ordinary. Of course, I do the same when choosing my look, as I really believe that a colorful and stylish look influences your mood, too.
