DIY statement necklaces/ uradi sam upečatljive ogrlice






You know how much I love statement necklaces. These ones I've made by sewing these lovely crystal imitations (that I have bought in a store where the sewing equipment is sold) onto faux leather.
I wanted to make something that would be of good quality i.e that wouldn't fall apart immediately after being purchased as some of the similar but glued necklaces some girls were ordering (and paying handsomely for) (being asked to fix one of those glued necklaces is what gave me the idea in the first place).

I think these are a good start and I hope I will approve my skills with time. (This working with faux leather is a bit new to me but really it isn't difficult. Sewing the crystals does take forever, though. I understand now why some choose to use the glue). The first necklace I gave to my sister-in-law, the second one to my mum and the third to my sister-in-law's sister. There are also two I didn't have time to take photographs of because I gave them away literally minutes after I have finished them, one  to my husband's sister and one to my friend.

So, what do you think? I did keep one for myself, you'll have a chance to see it soon.

Znate koliko volim upečatljive ogrlice. Ove sam napravila tako sam ušila ove lijepe imitacije kristala (koje sam kupila u dućanu gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje) na eko kožu. Htjela sam napraviti nešto što će biti dobre kvalitete i što se neće raspasti kao neke slične ogrlice koje su neke djevojke naručivale (i dobro plaćale), ali na kojima su kristalići bili zaljepljeni (zapravo jer sam sudjelovala u popravljanju jedne takve tek kupljenje ogrlice dobila sam ideju da napravim nešto ovakvo).

 Mislim da ove nisu loš početak i nadam se da ću usavršiti vještine sa vremenom (nisam prije šivala s eko kožom, to mi je malo novo, ali stvarno nije teško...samo stvarno treba sto godina da se ušiju kristalići, shvaćam sada zašto se neki posluže ljepilom.)Prvu sam ogrlicu dala nevjesti, drugu mami, a treću nevjestinoj sestri. Još su bile dvije koje nisam imala vremena fotografirati zato što sam poklonila doslovno par minuta nakon što sam ih dovršila, jednu muževoj sestri a drugu kumi.

Onda što vam se čini? Jednu sam zadržala i za sebe, imati ćete priliku vidjeti je ubrzo.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
