Yafa Petal Earrings

Yafa Petal EarringsHere is my version of Yafa Petal earrings designed by Penny Dixon.

This design is so festive. The flower petals at the end reminds me of breeze fluttering through fragrant rose petals in a summer’s day. I would certainly wear this time and again and its colours are just up my alley.

Incidentally, the petals are Czech beads purchased from www.cranberry.net.au.

Kumihimo Necklace and Earrings

Sky Necklace and EarringsHappy to have completed the Kumihimo necklace and earrings. The bead caps at the end of the Kumihimo braid and covering the blue crystal in the earrings are inspired by a design by Mabeline Gidez. The blues remind my of Sky and Sea and I am naming it Skye.

Kumihimo Braid

Blue KumihimoThis is my foray into Kumihimo weaving. Cord was not long enough and it took a lot of beads. Trick is not to tangle the yarn. I am now starting on a pink necklace. Love learning new techniques.

Palm Fronds on the Beach

Palm fronds on the beach (set)Well, I am really pleased that I have completed my triple spiral necklace with detachable pendant and earrings. I am calling it Palm Fronds on the Beach as it reminds me of early childhood of surf and sand and Casuarina trees in Changi beach, Singapore.
