Here it is....my rapsody in purple. One of the organza fabrics was put to a good use. I made a kaftan-like overdress and a lilac tube dress decorated with a belt. I think it would be an excellent choice for the fall trip to Tunisia.
I also used my newest necklace for this photo shoot, but I'll leave that for another post.

I immensely enjoyed the time spent making this pendant and I love how it turned out. While making my fabric brooches and pendants I always say that it's the same as with the box of chocolates (you surely know the saying) - I never know what it would grow into in the end. Of course I work with a draft drawing - but I love experimenting and usually the draft is just a starting point.
However, this little beauty has found a new home.
Bring a lot of bliss to your new owner.

Yesterday I finally decided what lace was most suitable for this blouse and sewed it as an embelishment to it. I think I chose right. The lace is perfect.

What is with this diaphanous, ethereal and dazzling fabric that makes me think of the sun-baked Orient, the cobble-stone streets and the hidden gardens in full bloom...
Lately I have been obssessed with organza. My favourite shop was swarmed with organza in every possible colour... Who could resist?? I certainly couldn't. I plan to make myself a long dress combining two of these. Still working on the design though (one of my favourite phases in creating).

This necklace has been waiting for so long to be finished so today I added the chain and 'voila'. The 'Celestal teardrops' necklace saw the light of day. Thankfully. Here are some pics:

I finally photographed my woollen jewels necklace that has been ready for a couple of months now. I named the necklace Mermaid jewels since the colour reminds me of the deep, crystal clear ocean bed craddling the kingdom of the mermaids. It is made with my woollen jewels this time in a light bluish-greenish hue, embelished with beads in green/silver colour.
