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:

You can find the Coquette choker in my Bigcartel shop: wakamesalada.bigcartel.com

The illusion necklace is something that most people are familiar with. I decided that I would give a new twist to it and use colored nylon wire instead of clear in this necklace

Vintage Button Necklace

I use a color of wire that compliments the color elements used in the necklace. The center focal is a vintage button that I took out of a bracelet. I wanted to share this necklace with you because of the uniqueness of the design.

Following are step by step instructions to make this necklace.

You can use any stones or crystal rondelles that you like to make this necklace. There are lots of colors of nylon wire available, so choose one that will compliment the beads or crystals that you use.

If you want to see more designs using colored nylon wire, check out my DVD #11 and DVD #12 devoted to the use of this wire to make unique designs at Pizazz Beads.

I love vintage and I love copper.

I made this asymmetric necklace with copper to give it a vintage look.I can’t say that the style of this necklace is vintage but it is a very unique design that I used some fun textures and shapes to make.The stones used are Amazonite and the pearls are peacock rondelles.

Following are close up views of this unique necklace.

I made this necklace because I love to design unique and unusual jewelry. I know that all designs may not appeal to everyone but I hope that if you are a jewerly maker you will be inspired to stretch your design imagination by what you see here.

If you want to use Amazonite bead or Peacock Pearl Rondelles in your beaded jewelry, you can find ones like those used in this pendant at Pizazz Beads.

Vintage pendant

Vintage pendant

Finally I received Vintage items that I’ve so long waited. As soon as I saw those fabulous jewelry findings, I got thrilled to create new jewelry. The very first was a few earrings (I will definitely post photos of collections later) and when I saw this magnificent pendant, I decided to create a simple but beautiful necklace with it. Pendant is Trinity Brass antiqued gold and it is hanging on antiqued brass chain. I attached to chain sparkling Swarovski beads.

It’s so enjoyable to create sparkling vintage jewelry, at least as enjoyable as to wear them! You can find me at – http://www.kultalilja.eu
