Monthly Challenge 2014 March

Inspired by the gorgeous photo that Lili Krist choose for this month challenge and by Indian jewellery, I have embellished a set of wire bangles. I've had them for some time but they were too plain. I bought them as their small size was perfect for my thin wrists. I wire wrapped some Swarovski crystals and seed beads to match. Now, they are not plain anymore. What do you think?




Tendo como inspiração a foto magnífica que Lili Krist seleccionou para o desafio deste mês, bem como a própria joalharia indiana, criei um conjunto de pulseiras rígidas decoradas. As pulseiras eram muito simples sem qualquer enfeite. Com arame muito fino enrolei cristais Swarovski e missangas checas a condizer. Agora deixaram de ser umas pulseiras simples. O que acham?

Beautiful jewellery / Jóias bonitas

Look what I got in the post yesterday. I was the lucky winner in the giveaway Lisa Yang held during the Grow Your Blog party. 
Vejam o que ontem chegou no correio. Eu fui a vencedora num sorteio realizado por Lisa Yang durante a festa Grow Your Blog. 



A pair of wire earrings made with blue goldstone. They're beautiful, delicate and lightweight. 
Uns brincos de pedra semipreciosa goldstone azul. São bonitos, delicados e leves.

I'm a reader of Lisa Yang jewellery blog. She shares her knowledge in various jewellery techniques, especially wire working. I wish my days had 48 hours so I could dedicate myself to this technique as well.
Sou leitora do blogue da Lisa, onde ela partilha os seus conhecimentos nas diferentes técnicas de bijutaria, em especial, nos trabalhos em arame. Como eu gostaria que os meus dias tivessem 48 horas para me poder dedicar também a esta técnica.

Ficam aqui os contactos:
Lisa's blog (blogue)
Etsy shop (loja Etsy)

Thank you so much, Lisa. I love your earrings.
Muito obrigada, Lisa. Adoro os brincos.

Hi. The bead soup from my lovely partner Siobhán has arrived. I love the combination of the green colour with the copper shades. Just look at it. 

Olá. A «sopa de contas» da minha querida parceira Siobhán já chegou. Adoro a combinação da cor verde com o tom do cobre. Vejam bem.







Thank you so much, Siobhán. I can't wait to get started. The reveal date for the created piece(s) is 3rd May.

Muito obrigada, Siobhán. Mal posso esperar para começar. A data de apresentação da peça ou peças será dia 3 de Maio.

Project Pinterest

Hi! Today, I'm participating in the Project Pinterest blog party hosted by Oksana of Oksana Plus Hobbies.
Hoje, estou a participar no Project Pinterest organizado por Oksana do blogue Oksana Plus Hobbies.

This is my pin from Pinterest - a swirly pendant in circular netting stitch. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to make one too.
O meu pin no Pinterest é um pendente em espiral feito com missangas. Quando o vi, percebi logo que tinha de fazer um igual.



In my version, I've used Preciosa Czech gold and dark bronze seed beads.
A minha versão tem missangas douradas e bronze escuro da marca Preciosa.




Please visit our hostess and the other participants here.
Visitem a nossa anfitriã e os outros participantes aqui.

Sopa de contas / Bead soup

The bead soup has sucessfully reached its destination. I'm surprised that it arrived so quickly. I sent it on Wednesday by regular post and yesterday it was delivered to my lovely partner Siobhán who lives in Dublin, Ireland. 

A minha 'sopa de contas' do evento Bead Soup Blog Party chegou à sua destinatária num instante. Enviei-a em correio normal na quarta-feira e foi entregue ontem, sexta-feira, à minha querida parceira Siobhán em Dublin, na Irlanda.


  







I can't wait to see what she creates with this sea inspired bead soup.
Mal posso esperar para ver o que vai criar com esta sopa de contas inspirada no mar.

8th Bead Soup Blog Party

My bead soup was sent today. It looks like this. I hope my dear partner Siobhán Keogh of Vovs Jewellery will like its taste.


Google Maps tells me that I can drive to Ireland to deliver it and that it will take me one day and four hours to travel 2,800 km.


I trust the post. It will arrive safe.
