Should I say month’s news?

Oh my! I can’t believe this month has passed so fast! There are only 33 days to Xmas!

November has been a bit silly… my parcel of yarns never arrived from England, they went back and we have some misunderstandings with the supplier so… uffff I had to look for new ones, organize myself to continue producing with almost nothing and here we are, I have found a new provider who has amazing fibers and you’ll see the results in next posts. Finally I’m glad … once again like yin and yang every negative contains a positive part.

Now the two new finished products are my lovely “Margarita” clutch bag knitted in a vibrant yellow-corn-mustard. I imagined it as a complement for a grey garment (to be the center of attention) or a light blue one (for a very retro look).

As I’m making a new vest (as the one I’ve made in white-cream some months ago) this time in a colorful palette… I was inspired to make this necklace I called “Spiral joy” and is obvious when you look at it, and you perceive the joy and good energy spreading all around…

Finally I’m having a SALE on my Etsy shop, my A little market shop and I’m going to participate on Dawanda Advent Calendar from 24th November to 17th December offering a 12% discount in all my products… so, good shopping!

Mapuche jewelry collection 09/10

Hi, hope you all had got a great weekend!

Today I’m going to show you my new collection of Mapuche bijoux… if you are one of my fans on facebook for sure you have seen it before.

This collection is made with more traditional colors, even if is not exactly how they use to make their artesanias… due to the color base was white or cream. But I love this combination and I feel it really appropriate for fall season.

This time threads are all cotton, (it was a client’s suggestion and I feel it right) and I’ve made also earrings… they are so unique that I’m sure you are going to love them.

For now not all the collection is published on my shops, but little by little I’m updating and you’ll see it this week available for sale…

Enjoy and have a good week!

News of the week

Last week I was very busy…yeah!

Making new things and also preparing some shipments … It seems that my shop in French created in the platform of A Little Market has begun to be known … and apparently my shawls are French’s favourite … so I’m producing  more of them …

I must also say that my store at Dawanda “woke up” after a long period of having no sales … so, a couple of chokers are gone and a summer pochette gave much to talk … is already living in Germany …

Thus today I am presenting a couple of new colors chokers but adapted for the Fall / Winter and in the line of scarves I design to implement this collar made of bamboo fiber blended with a super soft acrylic and decorated with a fun  fiber with hairs that gives it a glamorous look … hope you enjoy them!

Ah! and perhaps you are a little bit surprised because it is been a while without interviews… I thought in holidays period was difficult to engage people to interview but I’ll start again with them in Setember…so, in two weeks we will know more about new talented people …

Have a good week!

Summer crocheted scarves and necklaces

wow, such a difficult mission to sit down in front of the PC in summertime!

but in the other hand I found myself doing lots of accesories in a season I have called of “explosion of creativity”…

looking on my stash I saw a lot of flowers (yes I love them)  and I did these two necklaces… one of them can be used as a headband (I think the other one is more difficult due to the two pom-poms but maybe if you like extravagancies…)

Then I also had made these pieces in crochet I wanted to use for  another project, but I thought it was nice to use them as borders for these scarves… and if you see it is the same motif, but they have very different styles.. one of them more romantic and the other one is a very risky one… I didn’t think of please anyone, just to combine colors, and to my surprise people appreciated a lot… and it was on Etsy’s frontpage… oh yeah! 😉

New choker’s collection (crochet)

Do you remember I have bought a lot of buttons? So, I’ve made a line of chokers, that also can be used as a cuff… it is very casual, summery and ideal for the beach time… simply wear a swimsuit and this choker and you are going to feel like a queen! 😉

The rings

Today I’m going to show you the rings from the Bijoux Mapuche collection. I’ve made three and as I choose the threads one by one while weaving I can change all the motif from time to time… It is great to make a variety of them for the series..; I hope you like them!

New Mapuche bijoux collection

Past weekend was a little strange… first of all I missed the event of Knit in Public, due to my insomnia on Saturday…when I woke up it was very late to go, and I was very tired, so sadly I looked on the Internet for another events in Paris and I found this event of independent designers where I found Lygo a cooperative that sells little things made by African people, in their continent… so if you buy something from them is a pure fair trade… I thought I’ve seen them before, and effectively I did it in “A little market” a french platform to sell handmade… if you speak the language go and publish there, is little but friendly..;

So…. I came to present the new line of Mapuche bijoux I’ve made… this time is a more “unisex” one made in contrasting colors and with a little more rough texture that the one before…. here I show you two bracelets, but I have made more rings this time… I’ll show them in the next posts…
