Garden of wishes


Acest colier a fost creat pentru doua concursuri simultan: Visul unei nopti de vara (Clubul Designerilor de bijuterii) si Gradina Secreta (Etsy). 

Gradina in care imi doresc sa fiu este pe malul marii. E tesuta din valuri unduitoare, mai albastre decat visele, marginita de case atat de albe ca par fara varsta, si impodobita cu stele. 
E locul in care imi imaginez fericirea absoluta, care nu poate insemna decat doua lucruri: sa fii iubita, si sa fii inconjurata de Frumos. Si e locul care imi aduce si cea mai mare tristete, pentru ca stiu ca nu pot ajunge acolo decat in imaginatia mea. 
Datorita viselor legate de el, acest colier imi este extrem de drag, si am muncit zeci de ore pentru el. 
E tesut in intregime din margele de nisip Toho, adaugate una cate una, in principal in tehnica right-angle-weave. Pentru a-i da stralucire am adaugat perle de cultura, cristale cehesti, flori alcatuite din picaturi de sticla, margele tip ochi-de-pisica in forma de stelute, si pandantivul dintr-o piatra alb-albastra semitransparenta care recunosc ca nu stiu ce e... desi aduce cu un cuart prin "sparturile" din textura.

This necklace was designed for 2 competitions in the same time: A summer's night dream (a romanian competition) and Secret Garden (on Etsy).

The garden where I wish to be is situated on the edge of the sea. It's woven out of gentle waves, bluer than the dreams themselves, edged by houses so white that they seem timeless, and decorated with stars. 

It is the place where I imagine Happiness, that for me can mean just two things: to be loved, and to be surrounded by Beauty. And it is the place that brings me the most sadness, because I know I can only ever reach it in my imagination.

Due to the dreams woven into it, this necklace is extremely dear to me, and I worked a good number of hours for it. It is fully woven out of Toho seed beads, one by one, mostly in  the RAW technique. To give it sparkle, I added pearls, czech crystals, flowers made out of drop glass beads, star-shaped cat-eye beads, and the stone pendant which I admit I don't know what it is... even though it looks like a quartz because of its texture.
