Peafowl Feather Tribal Earrings - Minđuše u obliku paunovog pera

Ethnic/Tribal jewelry and adornments have always been one of the greatest sources of inspiration for me. I find great pleasure in studying it and would like to travel and live some time among those people - for various reasons, not just jewelry:)
Materials used: copper wire, brass wire, silver plated wire; tiny seed beads, jade beads and coral bead;

⋙ Plemenski nakit i ukrasi su mi oduvek bili jedan od najvećih izvora inspiracije. Pronalazim veliko zadovoljstvo u njihovom izučavanju i želela bih da ozputujem i, čak, jedno vreme živim među takvim ljudima - ne samo zbog nakita, već i zbog mnogih drugih stvari:)
Korišćen materijal: bakarna žica, žica od mesinga, posrebrena žica, staklene seed perlice, bon-bon žad perle i perla od korala;

Tribal copper wire necklace in various techniques - Tribal ogrlica od bakarne žice, u različitim tehnikama

⋙ This is a necklace that took me way too looong hours to make. The central piece of the necklace is a tubular bead weave, which I made for the first time. At first I thought I'll never make it since I find the beginning of the work extremely confusing, but once you get it, it goes smoothly. As for the pendant, I tried to weave a cotton thread around the copper wire frame - it was fun:)! And the two curly pieces on each side of the central decoration, I think the technique is wire coiling - I didn't follow any tutorial, I was guessing...but love the way they came out:). As for the materials I used glass seed beads, jade beads, tiny delica beads, oxidized copper wire and cotton threads.

⋙ Ovo je ogrlica koju sam pravila i previše dugo. Njen centralni deo čini cevasti bod perlicama, koji sam ovde po prvi put pokušala da napravim. U početku sam mislila da mi to nikad neće poći za rukom, s obzirom da početak rada deluje prilično zbunjujuće. Ali jednom kada uđete u štos posle ide lako. Što se tiče priveska, tu sam pokušala da tkam pamučnim koncem na ramu od kovane žice, što je bilo prilično zabavno:)! Dva izuvijana ukrasa koji se nalaze sa svake strane centralnog dela sam napravila po slobodnom nahođenju ( jer me je mrzelo da ponovo gledam davno odgledane tutorijale, pa sam uradila po sećanju - s obzirom na to, i nisu tako loše ispali:). Od materijala su korišćene staklene seed perlice, patinirana bakarna žica, pamučni konci, itd.
