3 Serangkai dalam Aksi

Together with Jane Pranata from Cherry Eve and Lili Krist from Personal Collection, we challenge ourselves to make design or series of design from beads sent by each of us. We call us Triumvirate in Action or in Bahasa Indonesia 3 Seangkai dalam Aksi.

We already started since last month April 2014 with Lili as the beads sender and these were the beads that she sent:


The yellow beaded beads were handmade by Lili.

And I made these



For May, it was my turn to send the beads and these were the beads:


My theme was "All about Turquoise" and I handmade the wire crochet beads and the clasps.

This is my design for this challenge



This month I was in love with beads embroidery using cabochon (this is my 2nd time I used this technique) ...so that was I made for the last 2 designs. However I can't forget the wire, so I put a little bit of wire to make accent for the bead chain. To tie the bead chain I use the blue rope.

For designs made by my two friends please go to this page Lili Krist and Jane Pranata

And now I wait with excitement for the beads send by Jane...

Monthly Challenge

I participated in the Monthly Challenge by Lili Krist for May 2014. I made it really close to the end of the month (it just me...doing everything in the last minute). The idea is from a movie called Gravity.

                                    
If you want to know the movie's story, you can find it here

I thought to use blue color to represent the outer space from human eyes. When I search my stash I found this blue druzy which pretty much remind me of land and cliff in a planet seeing from the sky.


 On Saturday as always I saw Cosmos, a space time odyssey in National Geographic TV............. it discussed about the solar energy.And when I saw the sun with its fluorescent energies, I just knew that was what I wanted to make. At first I am thinking of using orange beads to represent the sun, however I was not feel like the color at the time so I change it to blue..... and this the result................BROOCH OF THE COSMOS


I like how it turned out... it is so blue......

Cabochon Embroidery

Recently I learned how to make cabochon embroidery - single cabochon. I still in the very early stage of learning this technique and I still find difficulty in making  a neat back of the brooch. These are my works:






New Blog and This Blog

Last time when I have trouble with this blog, I made a new blog called My Maniks, I used different blog provider to make myself experiencing different type of blogging. Now, although this blog is already cured from its disease, I still use my new one and I am planning to use both blogs actively.

I use My Maniks for all the challenges I followed and maybe later I am thinking to change it to my online shop......... "someday when I can be a full timer".

So, welcome to my blogs and enjoy....
