Lady in Blue. Marie Antoinette


The bracelet I've made to combine silver and antique brass tones to create more aged look. Here you can find some nice Tibetan silver charms - butterfly, shoe (I love it!) and two Bali style round beads. I've attached beautiful puff heart made from very old Victorian stamping tool, but the picture doesn't show the beauty so clear...

 I adore filigree bead caps!!! They look like wonderful vintage lace. If you combine them in several layers, attach your favorite beads, you can get stunning vintage flowers. Or just wrap a bead. Here is an example how it looks like on one of my bracelets.

The wonderful Agua Swirl Lampwork beads time ago I bought on River Oak Acres Lampwork Beads, I'd recommend them - their beads are really beautiful and superb quality. Also here I've attached my favorite Swarovskies, they are a part of almost all of my creations:)
The picture of Marie Antoinette I found on the The Graphics Fairy site (thanks Karen!), put it on a Tibetan silver photo frame charm and covered with several layers of Amazing Glaze Embossing Powder.I like to use this because of glossy finish. As I work with polymer clay a lot, sometimes I use Fimo liquid clay. That works as well for projects you need matte finish.

Soon the bracelet and matching earrings will be available on my ETSY store and you have a chance to get 10% off the price as long as "Lady in Blue. Marie Antoinette" will stay on the store, just tell me your wish:)

And... as I'm blogger-baby I'm so exited to participate in The Graphics Fairy Brag Monday link party!!!
