Beyond the square crochet motifs

I love this book!! I want to make everything in it. I love the colors, the design, and specially I love that it has lots of things to crochet.

I got so excited when I got this book, that I instantly grab my Crochet hook, and begin to crochet non stop. I made several, and I want to use it for necklaces.

So far this are the only ones finished. I like crochet necklaces, you get so many forms, and colors, and you can totally make it trendy by adding a few beads.  What do you think?

Chandeliere earrings

I was a bridesmaid, for my cousin’s wedding, after choosing the dress, and have it made for me (the color made it really hard to buy one already made) I had to decide what accessories to wear, I’m not very comfortable with necklaces, I don’t know why, I love them but never wear them. But I love chandelier earrings, I love how they look, they make me feel sexier, of course in a obvious and subtle way, plus I have a round face, so they help my face look slimmer.

So I made my own for the wedding.

At the end I didn’t used them, they were a bit too long for my dress. But I love them.


Oro Viejo

This is something I really liked, I bought a golden (like old gold) necklace in a store, I forgot to take a pic, but it was basically just ring and chain, ring and chain. so I used the parts to make a nicer necklace, first I made this one, with a mix of gold and copper beads.

Este proyecto de verdad que me gusto, compre un collar dorado, asi con ese tono de oro viejo, al cual no le tome una foto por que lo olvide, pero era basicamente un aro y cadena, un aro y cadena, lo deshice y use las partes para hacer un collar mas bonito. Primero hice este con una combinacion de piedras cobrizas y doraditas.

and after I made this one which is my very favorite I love the color combination of green, turquoise, light blue and amber beads with the kind of old gold. This one is a keeper.

Despues hice este, que le verdad me gusta muchisimo, me encanto la combinacion de colores turquesa y ambar con oro viejo. Este se queda para mi.

Earrings I’m working at

As you can see some times I feel like sewing, sewing, sewing, other times crochet, crochet crochet but this is my jewelery period. I’ve been working in these earrings, I love the mix of conch and bead. And this “like chandelier” earrings are very light and have a lot of movement. This is the only pair finished, I have to make the second earing for each other pair. Is just that I start doing something and while I’m at it I feel like starting another one, or maybe I just thought of another color combination and I start the other one without finishing the first. I wish I could be an octopus ha ha ha.  
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Como veran, asi como los grandes artistas tambien tengo mis periodos. a veces solo coser, coser y coser, otras tejer, tejer y tejer, bueno este es mi periodo de hacer joyeria. He estado trabajando en estos aretes, me encanta la combinacion de concha y madera, y estos aretes tipo “chandelier” me gustan mucho por que son muy livianos y tienen mucho movimiento. Este es el unico par completo, aun tengo que hacer el segundo arete de cada par, pero es que me pasa mucho que empiezo a hacer algo, y mientras lo termino ya se me ocurrio como hacer otro y lo empiezo a hacer antes de terminar el primero. Si tuviera 8 brazos como los pulpos seria genial.

made for my mama

Mother’s day is coming, so last night I stayed up really late making all of my presents, for my mom, my aunts, and my grandma. When you work really hard you can say that you achieve something with the sweat on your forehead, well this, were made not with the sweat but with the blood of my fingers. Twisting the wire can be so hard on the fingers!!! I think next time I’ll get one of those plastic or metal finger covers. I don’t know what are they called in English. I think this things are for needle sewing.

But it was totally worth it, I LOVE IT!!! I’m very proud of this.

El dia de las madres se acerca, como quize hacer mis regalos, me pase la noche haciendolos, unos para mi mama, mis tias (los angelitos para celular) y para mi abuela tambien. Se dice que cuando trabajas duro para obtener algo lo logras con el sudor de tu frente, bueno, estos no fueron hechos con el sudor de mi frente sino con la sangre de mis dedos, trabajar con alambre puede ser muy duro para los dedos. Creo que la proxima vez me comprare un dedal de metal para protegerme.

 Pero valio la pena, estoy muy contenta con el resultado, me siento muy orgullosa de estos collares!!!

This are for my mom / Estos son para mi mama

and this, a bit more conservative is for my grandma ….
y este un poco mas conservador es para mi abuela

my mom loves marine blue and red, so this are also for her…..
A mi mama le gusta mucho el azul marino y el rojo, asi que tambien le hices estos dos

 

Angels

Last night I made this angels phone charms I thought it would be a nice present for all of my aunts on this Mother’s day. Here in Mexico is on May 10th, I wonder if it’s the same all over the world. Back to the angels, they’re made out of murano hearts, plastic beads, swarovski and glass, embellished with sequins. anyway I brought them with me to the office to take some pics and post them after.. a friend from the office saw them and asked to buy them, she took all of them, cool, now I have to make more. :-)
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Anoche hice varios angelitos para colgar en el celular, pense que seria un buen regalo para dar este 10 de mayo a mis tias. Aqui en Mexico se festeja el 10 de mayo, me pregunto si en todo el mundo es el mismo dia. Hablando de los angeles otra vez, estan hechos con piedras de murano en forma de corazon, algunas piezas son de acrilico, swarovski y vidrio, y tienen unos detallitos con lentejuelas. me los traje a la oficina hoy para tomarles unas fotos y postearlos despues, pero una amiga de la oficina los vio y los quizo todos para ella. asi que ahora me tengo que poner a hacer mas para recuperar los regalos para las tias.


And this is a Dragonfly charm, is a bit long for a cellphone but it will work great on a purse or in a key chain…………..Este colguije de libelulas me encanto, es un poco largo para un celular pero funcionaria perfecto en un bolsa o en un llavero.

 

Sequined Bangles / pulseras de lentejuelas

I love this ones, I made it a while ago, this are just different type of sequins and beads, and I love them because I love everything shiny, and because you can mix different colors, and have a bunch of the in your hand, but this are not fast to make./ estas me gustan mucho, las hice hace un tiempo pero me encantan por que me gusta todo lo que brilla, y ademas puedes mezclar colores y hacer tus propias combinaciones, aunque no son muy rapidas de hacer.
