Anklet Blog Hop - The Reveal





Endlich mal wieder ein paar Perlen auf meinem Blog, gell? Und zwar bei zwei Blog Hops, an denen ich heute teilnehme. Der erste wird von Kashmira Patel veranstaltet und dreht sich um etwas, was ich noch nie gemacht habe: Fußkettchen! Ihren Blog Sadafulee....always in bloom! findet ihr hier.

Fußkettchen bedeuten für mich SOMMER! Denn nur dann kann man sie tragen und sieht sie auch (zumindest im hiesigen Klima). Und im Sommer ist man ja öfter mal im Wasser oder am Strand und da sollte Schmuck strapazierfähig sein und nicht anlaufen. Also habe ich meine beiden Designs komplett ohne Metall hergestellt. Auch super für Menschen, die allergisch auf Metall reagieren!

Finally some beads on my blog again, right? I participated in two blog hops and both reveals are today. The first is hosted by Kashmira Patel and is about something I have never made so far: anklets! You can find Kashmira's blog Sadafulee....always in bloom! here.

Anklets mean SUMMER to me! You can only wear and, even more important, only see them then (at least in my corner of the world). And in summer our jewelry experiences a lot of stress: water, sun lotion, sand, so it should be durable and shouldn't oxidize. So I decided to make my anklets completely without metal. Also nice for people who have metal allergies.



Nr. 1 ist meiner kürzlich wieder erwachten Leidenschaft fürs Häkeln zu verdanken: weißes Baumwollgarn, bunte Glasperlen und ein Knopf. Das ist alles! :)

No 1 is a product of my lately rediscovered passion for crochet: white cotton thread, glass beads and a button. That's it! :) 

 
 
Nr. 2 ist ein bisschen ,,komplizierter": Lace Leaf Chain aus dem Buch ,,Zulu Inspired Beadwork" mit einem Mix aus blauen Rocailles, Millefiori-Glasperlen aus der Bead Soup Blog Party, Satinkordel und einem meiner geliebten böhmischen Glasknöpfe. Und jetzt weiter zu den talentierten Ladies, die mit mir Fußkettchen designt haben!
 
No 2 is a bit more "complicated": Lace Leaf Chain from the book "Zulu Inspired Beadwork" made with a mix of blue seedbeads, millefiori glass beads from the Bead Soup Blog Party, satin cord and one of my beloved Bohemian glass buttons. And now off blog hopping to my wonderful and talented fellow blog hopping ladies!

  4. I adore all fibre creations, Dagi... these look amazing. It is more difficult than one would think to design completely without metal (I have only done it once, a bracelet).

  5. Both of them are beautiful and I like the idea that you used no metal. Most of mine were made with glass beads and waxed linen, but I did resort to using metal in the clasps. Love the colorful summery anklets you made. Great job!

  21. I love your designs. That is the look I was drawn to when I began to look around the web for anklets. It is not what I ended up creating but I still have time. Lovely work.
