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?  : )

I cre­at­ed this lit­tle one for my lit­tle sweet heart, as she was ill, just to bright­en her day.
She called her Lucky. And — look! — I fell in love with this oh so sweet cud­dle doll myself. So it came, that some more sweet­ies came to life in my stu­dio late­ly.
Some of these hand­made cud­dle dolls are still avail­able here. Enjoy! :  )

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.
