Inspiration And Creativity - Thanks to Nina Designs !

 I`m thrilled at the box of goodies I received from  Nina Designs  last week . When I opened the box and saw the contents inside , I gasped in pleasure . The most beautifully finished metal charms , silk ribbons , clasp and ear wires lay inside ( things that I had only seen on the net ! ) .  My mind is whirling with ideas ,  I can`t wait  to use  them in my creations  . The variety of jewellery that can be made  with these components is so much that I  can`t wait to try out all that my mind has imagined  and  make different jewellery pieces.

Here`s what the box of goodies contained .

Jewellery components from Nina Designs




It`s an honor to be selected as a blog partner , and am looking forward to this challenge , Beginning with this post I`m going to showcase the jewellery I have made using the components that came in the box , and here is the first necklace which I have named 

                                                          Samudra - (meaning The Ocean)

Unique Jewellery inspired by the Sea , ocean inspired  necklace

The Turquoise Blues Silk ribbon from  Nina Designs  reminded me of the deep blue ocean and so I have tried to depict the  deep sea bed with scattered corals , shells , seaweeds and even a flower made from shell !




Collection of materials used include Silk ribbon from Nina designs , and , hemp cord , brass ring , mother-of pearl sequins, handmade Indian glass beads, stitched shell flowers from my own stash .


Necklace Samudra - Jewellery inspired by the Sea

 I stitched the shells to make a flower and attached shisha (glass mirror ) in the center . Cutting the hemp cord I mounted it on the brass ring a left over from my old discarded handbag using macrame technique . Stringing the beads , the ends have been secured using a simple knot .

corals , mother-of-pearl  
  
Stitching the flowers in place I added the silk ribbon to complete my necklace  Samudra 

 Do`nt you think the Silk ribbon is perfect to go with the theme ? and does`nt  it remind you too , of a beautiful  garden deep inside the Ocean ?

Looking forward to hearing from you ,
