New can tab earrings and tutorial!

Painting can tabs can really inspire you more.
It gives you brand new custom elements to add to your jewels; no need to have 50 shades of nail polish, just the main colors will be fine.
Or try a transparent coat and some glitter: it will really change your day!
Today I would like to introduce you my latest can tab earrings, with a mix between Bollywood and flamenco style

I used a Confetti coating over the glitter, so the result is pretty festive

Maybe this is the influence of The London 2012 Rhythmic Gymnastics (which I'm eagerly following these days) with all those sparkly costumes...

The news is: you can now make these earrings by yourself with a new tutorial I just made! Take a look at my Etsy shop!


This is how summer is supposed to be, but this one is particularly hot in Italy. To warm it up a little bit more, let me show you this month mosaic for the Etsy Beadweavers challenge:

Voting will run until August 16, 2012 so hurry up and choose your favorite!

More bracelets

This time I made a bangle in silver and gold - because honestly, it's become too difficult to choose only one of the two and who has time to match jewelry colour anyway!

I beadweaved two RAW pieces around a harmonic metal wire, which gives the bracelet the right shape, added a central piece in brick stitch with a couple of Swarovski for extra light, some sanded silver beads and then added my favorite, lovely daisy beads in 3 different colors.

The wire makes it easier to wear and/or put away, so stacking bracelets is easier and see how they look good altogether

This bracelet frenzy is not over yet, so bear with me!

Glitter is back

Deep inside, we all love glitter.
It's just we don't want to admit it.

Glitter is our connection to our childhood, when we wanted everything to be sparkle and bright...but we still can indulge with a little glitter even as grown ups!
So which season could be more perfect (except for Xmas) than summer to have a little bit of glitter, and of course I'm talking about earrings

A glitter coating makes anything look better, even those can tabs sadly looking at you from the stash box

And you might want to use the same coat on your nails to brighten up your day!
