Mother of pearl artistic beads.

I suppose in the middle of the summer mother of pearl should be a must, so when I saw these artistic mother of pearl beads I couldn't resist to the temptation, and I purchased them!


I enjoy working with mother of pearl because it is a gorgeous, and affordable material. I think patterns make necklaces more lively - especially such a delicate, thin, long one - so I alternated the artistic beads with glass cubes and disks.


In my shop I have more mother of pearl necklaces and earrings, but I think these artistic beads are more interesting than everything I'd got up to now. They look like chinese pottery, but are definitely more lighthearted.
The funny thing is that, although nicely hand-painted with floral motives, if you look them closely, you can spot a hint of the artist's true personality.



Hilarious, right? Just on Elettrarossa :D 

Stay tuned for more fantastic jewelry to come, and have a nice week end!

Banner making!

My supplies are still on their way to Dublin, so today I'll show you the banners I made for my facebook page, ElettraHandmade (...leave a "like" if you pass by!).


No big deal, I'm a hard-core, self-taught photo editor...but I must say I enjoy it very much! Sure it's more (re-)creative than adjusting pictures for Etsy!



More importantly, it's like being child all over again - though paper and colors never run out!


I've tried to create special contents for ElettraHandmade, but I just don't have enough time, so as now it's kind of a bulletin with the new items listed on Etsy, treasuries, and stuff. Boooring!



These lazy summer mornings are perfect to compose some collage, i.e drinking a cup of coffee and eating slices of bread covered in nutella! However, what do you think? Please, let me know...

Have a nice week end!

Fighting for new supplies takes its time.



Where do you buy your supplies online, and how much do you think it is worth paying for them (or waiting for them)? I ask myself "the" question anytime I need new beads. But after hours spent on the internet, I generally give up and buy whatever I stumble upon!
I'm not a coherence model.

Since I'm still waiting for the new stuff I ordered, I'll be back to you as soon as I get it!

Stay tuned!
