Jewellery lessons with a real bonafide jeweller

I've had a great week on my little Paradise Island.
 Karista Krishna came down and she is an amazing jeweller from Bali. She's featured in shops there and the latest one on the new Kuta Walk. 
I got to hang out with her and she taught me some new tricks,
and in the process made me a wonderful bracelet.

Her work-board is a bit more organised than mine, and the gemstones she uses are amazing.

The end result: A stunning bracelet which I will cherish forever.

"Summer Lovers"

It's summer.
The temperatures are soaring.
Floaty dresses, bare legs and flip flops are everywhere. 

This necklace is made with wooden beads, hand made glass beads, Swarovski crystals, Tibetan silver charms and cultivated pearls from Bali and would go great with a floaty dress or jeans and singlet...ice cream optional!

"Naturalista"

As simple as it gets:
Really tiny beautiful Indian sandalwood beads, the lovely Rudaksha bead and 100% silk cord which I've macrame'd and a tassel at the end.
