As much as I wanted to have a big Studio with large, open shelves that always under another was my “handiwork of untold wealth.”
That everything is always at hand, and not have to search in different boxes and drawers is an essential item or cut of fabric or leather. No, it certainly is very good when in search of the necessary material rummaging in boxes and boxes, stumble on other interesting things and stuff! And creative thought begins to come up with a new one.
In one such search, I came across a box of wire. Remember I wrote about my fascination with knitting wire?
Once upon a time, they enjoyed great success with my clients. This idea of knitting with wire with bead tubes, I was born quite unexpectedly. I thought very few options of decorations that would fit different women loving the diversity of wearing jewelry. When one element can turn into a complicated decoration or stay simple.
For knitting, I used a different wire and a mix of bright Japanese beads. The color of bead mix was chosen for the main color of the wire. And began the process of knitting. The length of the tube is also varied depending on decoration ideas. And most importantly, such a tube may have a different reason for the creation of unique jewelry. This can be a cord, a silk or from cotton. Can be a chain or rubber cord. For a more solemn occasion, such a tube can decorate a silk scarf or just a piece of beautiful fabric.
So… all the attention is on the screen.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. If you like my jewelry, please contact me.
What would you like to receive a gift as a memory of your childhood?
A warm evening, when it is possible to remove the hated coat or warm jacket, throw away the hat, mittens, and scarf. And breathing in fresh spring and the warm breeze to run out into the yard. And there, on the dried the pavement, laughing and surprising warm day to draw with my friends the classics and jump to full fatigue. Draw funny pictures on the same pavement and enjoy his carefree childhood.And only the voice of his mother from the window could distract you from these activities.
Or maybe a doll house?
Remember how you played with the neighbor girl dolls? As I tried to sew them first and such funny dresses, how to make room out of everything that came across under hands. As they carried them to the courtyard and showed their skills.
I remember it now with a warm sadness. For these good memories gave me one of my clients. She wanted to make his mother a gift for the Holiday mother. And chose a little doll in a beautiful dress. I would really like to see how she would react to such a gift, as it will keep in the hands of this girl. Maybe her memories will be similar to mine.

It seems that the famous “Indian cucumber” as the pattern is now experiencing a new round of popularity — based on it really is very a well-known brand has managed to produce completely different forms of clothing.The history of the origin of the pattern.
Paisley, Indian cucumber, or, if not accurately, booth — the pattern is very ancient. Probably the first time he appeared in the Sassanid Empire, an ancient state, from 224 to 651 ad, located on the territory of modern Iraq and Iran. Thanks to trade relations fabric with this pattern spread throughout Central Asia and even in India and Africa. In Europe, the same “cucumber” came from India in the XVII century due to the British colonists. The demand for exotic Indian cloth was so high that enterprising Europeans began to weave fabric with “cucumber” themselves. A small Scottish town Paisley, in General, is fully devoted all resources to the production of cloth in the Indian style and thus remained for centuries — but as the name of the pattern.In fact, what really is Paisley, no consensus. According to one version, this floral motif, combined with the silhouette of a cypress tree, a symbol of life in Zoroastrianism. Another version of the origin of stylized flames also symbolizes life. Perhaps the origin of cashew nuts, which were a symbol of fertility. In India, it is widely believed that “cucumbers” represent the seeds of the mango tree. In any case, what the theory did not take — it is about life and fertility.
The first popular product with the Paisley pattern in Europe was cashmere shawls from the Indian region of Kashmir. They were extremely expensive, and afford only wealthy aristocrats. In the early nineteenth century, Scottish masters learned to weave “cucumbers” on jacquard looms and shawls with Paisley became more a mass product. However, they were not cashmere, but lambswool or silk and flowers were much less than the authentic Indian product.A little later start to Paisley print on cotton, and the pattern ceases to be a luxury, and by the 1870s, the “cucumbers” not exactly out of fashion, but rather move to the area every day.
.Now Paisley is experiencing a new heyday.
Given the Paisley on the carpet during the fashion shows this year, we can assume that the summer will see a new wave of enthusiasm “cucumber”. In the end, not everyone can wear camo.
