I’ve been playing with a very broad range of materials lately – very different colours and textures. This shows in the latest designs I listed at L’Atelier de Talaru.
I had another Art Deco baby’s rattle, that I transformed into this…
I like the contrast of bright and dark silver, with a hint of blue from the Iolite gemstone chain.
I wrote recently about some Art Deco Bakelite necklaces I got from a closed down factory in France. Also in the same stash was a huge collection of Galalith beads. I used some to make this necklace…
The organic colours are lovely, and the central bead on this piece is massive. It’s not super heavy, but it certainly dominates the design!
I always love a mirror locket, and this one was originally destined for my supplies shop however I was inspired by a bag of miscellaneous gemstone beads in nice Fall colours, and so made this necklace.
Last but certainly not least is a necklace which features a handmade artisan bead by the brilliant Anne Choi. Her beads are so amazing you don’t need too much else in the design and I am always stuck on how make the most of the components so as to best show off her work. I opted to keep it simple, drawing on the colours in the bead and replicating these in the necklace. I think it works…what do you think?
