This week I am working on a new tutorial. I like to draw, that is also why I like to bead... drawing with big pixels, small pixels, beads... The pattern is for a pair of elegant earrings - the perfect hoops for Christmas or New Year's Eve - which I made to complement the necklace "Echo Dance".
|Echo Dance Ear Hoops - pattern - English - 8.00 US|
So voilà: from now on I sell my patterns for these reasons.
|Echo Dance - 170 US$ + shipping|
And... I have decided to sell my jewelry too!
I will post pictures every now and then, so please come back to see the updates if you like my work. Most of you know me already but for those who don't, please note that everything is hand-made with love, the designs are my very own (except if otherwise stated) and the work and material are top-quality. I hope to be able to open a webshop soon.
To make the 21.5-inch rope, I used Japanese seed beads, Czech glass, crystal rondelles and freshwater-pearls with a weaving technique which I like to call "tri-CRAW" - a variation of cubic right-angle weave on a triangular basis. The pendant is made of carved blue-ish green yellow jade (natural stone), measuring 2 3/4 by 1 inch.
If you are interested in purchasing a pattern or jewelry, please contact me at cath @ parure . ch for more info, pictures, details, etc... (you have to take the spaces out of the address).
The Echo Dance I refer to is a breath-taking performance which can be seen in this fabulous film name "House of the Flying Daggers".
This film is a real gem made by Yimou Zhang. He has an incredible sense for beauty and the scenes filmed outside are amazing, definitely worth watching. With the beautiful Ziyi Zhang and Takeshi Kaneshiro. Enjoy!
