Czech Bead Necklace: Meeting The Past

 I created this white, red and gold sparkling czech class seed beads necklace as I was a school girl, being an Art School student  just to make a try and to participate on my very first Fine Art Exibicion. From drawing the sketch and calculating the beading sheems to enjoy the magic of forms, playing with structures, letting the imagination work…  That was fun!
Years passed – and now I have the beads on my work table again. That is a work I really love to do – I enjoy the magic of the colours and natural shades  of genuine gemstones beads.  And the carefully gethearing of tiny beads on a silk cord feels just like some kind of meditation to me. That is also kind of re-connecting me with the nature in some very special way.
I believe, that is where the Woodlanders rooth…

Genuine Aquamarine Bracelet: Gems and Silk

Inspired by the most  sparkling Sunday: Blue is for Dreamers!

IMGP3175a1 IMGP3194a1 Genuine Aquamarine Bracelet by Atelier Lavendel

 A sweep of lovely clear blue aquamarine gems is strung on a light blue silk string with the ends securely fastened and left intentionally to fray. To close with 14k gold filled lobster closure and findings to secure the bracelet. Just the right mix of sparkls, lights and metal. All gemstones I use are natural and genuine, untreated, the best quality available. Aquamarine is said to do many things metaphysically. It is often thought of as a universal sign of hope, health, and youth and is said to specifically bless all those born in March who wear it. This genuine aquamarine bracelet is now available here.

Handmade Jewellery: the Woodlanders

My new collection of handmade genuine beaded gemstones jewellery is here. I am thrilled to share my  very first impressions of these delicate gemstones bracelets I have created these days.  I called this line The Woodlanders. It is inspired by the nature and the colours of the summer:  green, pink, aqua and multicolour.  I used genuine untreated beads of natural gemstones, such as  jade, peridot and aquamarine and also coral and finished with high quality sterling silver or 14k gold filled chains, lobster closures and findings.
More details – next days. Stay tuned!

My Sweet Inspirations: The Spring

 Especially during the Springtime it is the beautiful nature which inspires me to my new Atelier Lavendel creations again and yet again. It is the wonderful light in the woods, it is the clear and airy feel everywhere, and it is the life itself, always awakening  once again by this time, always raising the hope and the believe, everything is going to be good… And beautiful.
But here – my sweetest inspiration of all – my little Lou. Like a good fairy she is always the one to be watching over me and to proove the sweetness and the quality of things  I am working at  ;  ). Thank you so much for being here, my dear angel!

Handmade Gemstones Jewellery: a Necklace for Meadow

Here Meadow Low  is showing her gemstones necklace. (Well, I would say, she is rather showing off, but, please, do not tell her!  ; )  ) Anyway, I have made it for her of genuine shiny green aventurine: 2,5mm smooth gemstones rondells.  They are strung on a green silk cord with the ends left intentionally to fray. I have used a silver filled magnetic ball closure and findings for a comfortable and secure everyday wear.  Due to the total length of 14 inches/ 36cm we have quite a nice choise here: for one little lady  that piece of handmade gemstones jewelry means a  long doll´s gemstones necklace, and for another one that may make a nice delicate double string bracelet. Which one would you prefere?  : )

Art Dolls: Meadow Lou

Like the meadows… green grass and a soft light creamy colour of the seeds growing within…
That is Meadow Lou. Inspired by the colours of the Spring here, she is a handmade cloth doll by Atelier Lavendel, standing 8 inches.

Handmade cloth doll by Atelier Lavendel. Waldorf inspired, all natural materials, organic. Handmade in Germany.

 I have made her using high quality woven cotton doll making fabric, organic clean wool for stuffing, polka dotted cotton fabric for her clothes: her dress and her panties as well. I have chosen a light brown Dolly Mo mohair for her hair. Her pig-tails can be opened, her hair can be finger combed.  I hand embroidered her facial features wit cotton embroidery floss.  Her legs are button jointed and movable. She can sit free. Her clothing can not be put off.
The 14 inches long necklace she is wearing is of genuine 2,5mm aventurine gemstone rondells, gathered onto a silk string, to close securely with a magnetic  closure. It can be used as a double string wrapped bracelet or a short necklace and would make a nice gift for a girl, a teeny  or a women.  Meadow Lou is now available here.
