Bank holiday = free time = more candles!!

Since in Switzerland everything is close on bank holiday and was nobody at home... I decided to take over the balcony and kitchen and try some new candles ideas I had... I have to say that for my second day of trying I'm not bad at all at this!!



This are dry roses...

and this lavanda...


mica powder

This one is with natural elements I found last week in the forest! I love it because looks like end of winter when the snow starts to melt....



and that's my final collection after 2 days...

New materials!

  As you all can see I just love doing hand crafts! Love jewellery because is something I can wear and show to people, but as I said... I'm happy doing any craft! So today I decided to try something I haven't tried before! Candles!!! Here are the pics of my two first attempts that are already ready! Few more on the way!!

  They are candles hurrican style (they are hollow in the middle so you put a tealight) so one pic is with a lit tealight and the other how it looks normaly...

Silver/Copper

On my last day in Brighton I couldn't resist and I went to the workspace I used to take silversmith classes, I had a sheet of copper and some silver left for long time... Despite not working with metal for so long I still managed to do a few bits...

My name bracelet copper version!

It's time for Upcycling!!

If is something I just can't do is to be for long without create... And I had some spare time, but ALL my stuff (materials and tools are in UK...), so I had to figure out something to do that I wouldnt spend much money and wouldnt take too much space in my suitcase on the way back... So the answer for my preys was: Upcycling (reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original). And I choose cans as my material!

Here are some pictures of my first creations!
