Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

80 cm of ds

That necklace is worked with 2 shuttles, filled with two threads, green (and yellow, for the flower) 100% pure silk (seta Faro) and DMC n.282 gold metallic thread. Beads were stringed in both shuttles.
The necklace's lock is a "button and loop" style fastening, with a little faceted green agate, that it's used to lock the flower, too.
The flower is removable, and it could be used on another button as well. On the back of the flower I sewed a rounded piece of imitation leather, leaving a little bottom hole. In that way, the flower could be used on another garment.
I like the way the flower came out, and I think I should make a tutorial for it. To not forget, ehm, mainly...

Questa collana è stata fatta con 2 navette, riempite con 2 filati, quello verde (e il giallo del fiore) è di pura seta, marca FARO,  l'altro è il filo metallizzato oro della DMC, n.282. Le perline le ho inserite direttamente nel filo delle navette.
La chiusura a bottoncino ha una piccola agata sfaccettata, che serve anche come centro del fiore. Per il fiore  ho cucito un pezzettino di finta pelle sul retro, con un'asola per la pietra. Il fiore si può levare e abbottonare anche su un altro capo d'abbigliamento.
Mi piace come è venuto il fiore, penso che dovrei fare un tutorial, principalmente per me, ehm...



  1. That's so pretty. Versatile too, and made from sumptuous materials, it must be a winner!

  2. Bellisima, molto originale ed elegante!


Thank you very much for all your nice comments.
