Colorful - Zivopisno



* Here are some homemade card labels that are ready to be packed together with my jewelry and shipped to a local store. I am looking forward for this new opportunity for my jewelry to be more visible. I just realised that offline sales are still important and should not be lost out of focus. I also realised that selling is as important as making products and to be succesful I need to spend some more time to find right audience for my work. I'm affraid that, at least, at the beggining I won't be able to spend as much time as I'd like on blogging. There is so much different things to do: finding new jewelry supplies, testing new techniques, making new pieces, selling online and offline, OMG! I am going to be a real entrepreneur!

* Ovo su kartonske etikete iz kucne radinosti. Spremne su za pakovanje zajedno sa komadima nakita i isporuku u lokalnu galeriju. Radujem se na ovoj novoj mogucnosti da moj nakt postane vise vidljiv. Upravo sam shvatila da je offline prodaja bar isto toliko vazna koliko i online i da ne bi trebala da ispadne iz fokusa. Takodje sam shvatila da je podjednako vazno raditi na pronalazenju pravih kupaca za svoj proizvod, mada bih ja zelela da se bavim iskljucivo izradom, ali...Iz svega ovoga proizilazi da necu moci da se posvetim ni objavljivanju postova onoliko koliko bih zelela. Pronalazenje novih izvora nabavke materijala, nove tehnike koje treba isprobati, prodaja preko interneta, prodaja "uzivo", toliko toga - na putu sam da postanem pravi preduzetnik.

THE PROCESS OF MAKING WIRE CROCHET JEWELRY - PROCES IZRADE NAKITA OD KUKIČANE ŽICE


>>> This is how it looks - first, I have decided that I want something that can be both classic and modern at the same time. Wire crochet is exactly the technique that allows you to do so. I also wanted a more rigid forms, so I decided to tightly knit, by using  just a single crochet stitch in black and clear transparent seed beads.  
>>> <<<
<<< Evo kako to izgleda - pre svega, opredelila sam se za nešto što će istovremeno izgledati i klasično i moderno. Kukičanje žicom je upravo tehnika koja tako nešto omogućava. Takođe sam želela da postignem malo strožije forme koje sam mogla da postignem tako što ću gušće kukičati, koristeći se niskim stubićima i kombinacijom crnih i transparentnih perlica.

Summer Jewelry - Letnji nakit




In English:
Here are two new necklesses, in summer color combos. They are quite simple to make. It's all ,actually, about bead shapes and colors. I was inspired with fresh sea and sun tones. All you have to do is to string the beads of your choice on silver or color coated wire and make simple chains while adding the beads. Make 3 strings of the same lenght and braid them together. Put some jewelry findings that you like, hide and secure the wire endings and there it is! I even used white organza tape as a "novelty" point!

Na srpskom:
Ovo su dve nove ogrlice u letnjim nijansama. One su prilicno jednostvane za izradu. Najveci deo posla je u izboru boja i oblika perlica. Ja licno sam bila inspirsana morskim i suncanim tonovima. Sve sto treba da uradite je da nanizete perlice u zeljenoj duzini na zicu i zatim radite obicni lancani bod, dodajuci pri tom perlicu po perlicu. Napravite 3 niza perlica iste duzine i upletite ih u pletenicu. Stavite zavrsetak za ogrlicu po vasem izboru, sakrijte i osigurajte krajeve zice i - ogrlica je gotova! Kao "novitet" koristila sam belu organdin traku.

Transparent and mat red beads - Providne i mat crvene perlice



In English:

This was a custom made order on red theme. The receipe for this bead soup is:

1. Transparent red round glass beads
2. Mat red round glass beads
3. Transparent pink faceted cristal beads

I think this red bead mix looks classy if compared with the one bellow. It should, red is my favorite colour!

Na srpskom:
Ovo je radjeno za poznatog kupca, na temu "Crveno". Recept za ovu mesavinu perlica je:
1. Transparentne crvene oklrugle staklene perlice
2. Mat crvene okrugle staklene perlice
3. Transparentne pink kristalne perlice

Cini mi se da ovaj miks crvenih perlica izgleda mnogo bolje nego onaj iz posta ispod. I trebalo bi, crveno je moja omiljena boja!
