The store opening - Otvaranje online prodavnice

                                      

* I was busy lately with setting up my own online store, the first one, at Dawanda. It's finally there and you are welcomed to visit it. I hope you'll find a gift for you or someone you care about:)!
At the same time that's the reason why I didn't make any new styles recently. I hope this cute Duck will make it up. I took this shot yesterday during the walk at Ada Ciganlija ( Gipsy River Island would be the litteral translation ), the favorite Belgrade resort place. There are some more pics at Flickr, you may check that too:)!

* U poslednje vreme sam bila zauzeta otvaranjem svoje prve online prodavnice, i to na Dawandi. Napokon sam i to uradila. Dobrodosli ste da je posetite, a nadam se i da cete uspeti da pronadjete nesto za sebe ili za nekog drugog ko vam je bitan.
To je ujedno i razlog zasto u poslednje vreme nisam stigla da napravim nista novo. Nadam se da ce slicica ove patkice to da nadoknadi. Slikala sam je juce na Adi Ciganliji i meni je bas slatka. Mozete da vidite i druge slicice napravljene tokom jucerasnje setnje u mojoj galeriji na Flickr-u.

Autumn in Belgrade - Jesen u Beogradu


* And another beautiful day for a weekend. I took a walk with my sister at Friendship Park and Ušće and took this shots. Only when I put them on my computer I realized what a color, shape and texture firework it was. It would also make a wonderful inspirational pictures, especially for jewelry designers. Later I will upload some more on my Flickr gallery, you may check that too:).

* I još jedan prelep dan za vikend. Sa sestrom sam se prošetala po Parku Prijateljstva i Ušću i slikala ove slike. Tek kad sam ih prenela na kompjuter shvatila sam kakav je to vatromet boja, oblika i tekstura. Takođe mogu da posluže i kao izvor inspiracije, naročito za dizajnere nakita. Kasnije ću dodati još slika u moju galeriju na Flickr-u, pa možete i to da proverite ako želite:).

Something Blue - "Toliman" set * * * Nesto plavo - set "Toliman"

* Here I tried to work with beads in ( my version of ) Peruvian stitch. The bracelet made this way appears thinner than usuall. It is very interesting since both sides of the bracelet look the same since there is only a single layer with even arrangement of beads. There is no right or wrong side. I tried to do that before in regular crochet, but I didn't manage. So I'm happy that this problem is now solved. Earrings are shaped into leaf and they are very simple and airy.

* Ovde sam pokusala da radim sa perlicama u mojoj verziji Peruanskog krosea. Narukvica koja je napravljena na ovaj nacin je tanja nego inace i meni izgleda interesantno zato sto je potpuno ista i sa jedne i sa druge strane sa ravnomernim rasporedom perlica u jednom jedinom lejeru. Nema lica ni nalicja. To sam pokusavala i ranije da uradim sa regularnom tehnikom kukicanja, ali mi nije uspevalo. Tako da mi je drago da je ovaj problem resen. Mindjuse su u obliku lista i veoma su jednostavne i vazdusate.

Alpha Cygni Earring(s) - Alpha Cygni mindjuse



* It took me around 3 hours to make this earring, so for now there is only one. I need to recover to be able to make another one:). I used Navy and Gold craft wire. In the middle there is a Swarowski pearl in matching Navy.

* Trebalo mi je negde oko 3 sata da napravim ovu mindjusu. Trebace mi kraci oporavak da bih mogla da napravim drugu:). Inace, koristila sam teget i zlatnu hobi zicu, a u sredini se nalazi Swarovski perlica u pratecem tonu.

"COR CAROLI" jewellery set - "COR CAROLI" set nakita

* Utilising new technique - here I made a 3 piece jewelry set, a pair of earrings and two bracelets. One is tonal in orange shades and the other is multicolor in 70's retro colors. Looks hippie to me. Each piece can be  a separate, too.

* Primena nove tehnike - ovo je trodelni set koji se sastoji od jednog para minđuša i dve narukvice. Jedna je narandžasta, tonska, a druga je višebojna u kombinaciji boja koja je pomalo retro, iz 70-tih. Po meni set je u hipi fazonu. Svaki deo može da se nosi i kao posebna celina.

"Algol" Bracelet in who knows what technique - "Algol" narukvica u ko zna kojoj tehnici

* Well, I tryed here to make the bracelet in my version of Peruvian Stitch, but it seems that I lost my connection with peruvian "spiritual channel" for receiving informations and, apparently, this is some new technique...which one, I'm not sure! However, the bracelet is nice and firm, yet very light. The closure is weird, disregard it, I'll put something else.

* Ovde sam probala da napravim narukvicu u svojoj verziji peruanske tehnike kukicanja, medjutim, izgleda da sam izgubila vezu sa peruanskim "spiritualnim kanalom" za otkrivanje informacija tako da, ovo jeste neka nova tehnika. Ali koja nisam jos sigurna. U svakom slucaju narukvica je fina i cvrsta, a ipak lagana. Sistem zatvaranja narukvice je improvizovan i bice zamenjen.

Trying to work in Peruvian crochet technique - Proba rada u novoj tehnici, tzv. Peruanski kroše

* I am impressed with a Peruvian Crochet, an anciant technique that gives amazing results especially in jewelry making. I have found a very short tutorial that tells only how to make the first row...so I'm not sure if my Peruvian Stitch is O.K. If anyone from Peru is reading this and is willing to tell me how to make a Peruvian Stich , I"ll be more than gratefull:) Here are some ellements that I made, actually these are only testings. Will think of future project once I'm sure I know how to work in this technique.
* Odusevljena sam peruanskom tehnikom kukicanja, koja je prastara. A narocito rezultatima koje daje u dizajnu nakita. Pronasla sam veoma kratak tutorial koji otkriva jedino kako se pravi prvi red.. tako da nisam sigurna da sam ovo uradila kako treba. Ako postoji neko ko se takodje interesovao za ovo i uspeo je sam da otkrije "tajnu" peruanske tehnike kukicanja, moze slobodno da me kontaktira, bicu mu zahvalna:) Ovde sam napravila neke elemente u toj tehnici koji su zapravo samo probe. O nekim ozbiljnijim projektima razmisljacu tek kad zaista ovladam ovom tehnikom.  

Wire Bead Crochet Elements - Elementi u tehnici kukicane zice sa perlicama

* Here are some wire bead crochet elements. I still have to think of how to use them. The first one is probably going to be a part of the lamp shade, and the other one is going to be a hairpin or a decoration on a hairband.

* Ovo su elementi u tehnici kukicane zice od kojih ce u buducnosti da bude nesto napravljeno. Od prvog elementa ce verovatno biti napravljen abazur za lampu, a od drugog snala za kosu ili ukras za rajf.

Earrings to go with "Nashira" bracelet - Mindjusice uz "Nashira" narukvicu

* This is something I didn't  manage to post in time. This pair of earrings goes together with "Nashira" bracelet from few posts bellow. I still have to work to get the perfect shape of wire beads.
* Ovo je nesto sto nisam uspela da postujem na vreme. Ovaj par mindjusica ide uz "Nashira" narukvicu iz par postova ispod ovog. Jos uvek nisam zadovoljna izgledom perle od zice...
