Le Cimetière au Printemps Jewellery Collection Pictures

I think the new jewellery pictures came out super good, thanks to the 40 mm lens I got in the beginning of the year (or was it December? I forget). So here's a few, just because I'm so pleased!

I'm also quite proud of the collection name, it's "Le Cimetière au Printemps", the cemetary at springtime. I wanted to use candylike pastel colours and silver, to give the jewellery a unified look. So there's baby pink, light blue, even a dash of orange here and there to give the feeling of little flowers awakening in the spring.

Baby pink fleur-de-lis earrings. I just love these cabochons and I think the settings are one of the prettiest I've seen. I used deer horns as a prop to have something from the nature and still reminding of death to set the mood.

Pink lucite cross earrings. I think these look just like candy! I love the kitschy look of the crosses, they are gothic at the same time with the ornamental design.

Cascading Drops earrings.
I had a bag of different plastic tear-drop beads and selected a few sets of colours
that went well together to create these type of earrings. Some of the beads have an
iridescent finish, others are just transparent bright colours.

Ripe Berries earrings. These are wonderfully small and delicate, and I really like
the finish on the beads. They are cloudy, not transparent, but still let some light through.

Purple Sprinkles necklace. This one was made with nail polish and some glitter, I think
the turquoise and lavender shades really go well together! And the hanging bead was such
a good match, too.

Purple cross necklace. This picture was just so nice I wanted to share it! It shows perfectly
how the lucite cross changes colour according to the background. On dark backgrounds, it
is a deep purple, but on light it goes lavender.

Purple Glitter Bat Bow Hair Clip. This one is my favourite! I found a few sheets of glitter foam and decided to make hair clips, since I'm totally into purple, glittery things ;P It's shaped like a bat, but still feminine and delicate enough to pass for a bow when needed. And because everything purple and glittery needs an over-the-top name, it's called "Wings of the Night"!

    1. Thank you! The backdrops consist of a window sill (stone, so it would be reminiscent of the tomb stone), a plant (was just there already), curtain (was there and happened to be a matching colour) and the deer antlers that I had bought earlier to make a cool hat ;)

    1. Thanks! I resisted the urge to wear my own hair clip to work today, it would have been a bit too much with the skull dress I chose. But maybe tomorrow with a plain black dress... :)

    1. Kiitos! Saa tulla ostoksille, osa noista lähtee taas animetapahtumiin myyntiin, mutta Etsy-kauppa on ykkönen eli sitä kautta saa varmasti haluamansa :)

  4. Wow! I love these! The fleur de lys cabochons are gorgeous, and I really DO want to eat those candy looking crosses, and those coloured teardrops remind me so much of my childhood, perhaps I had something like that then! Wow, everything is so beautiful!
