DIY necklace/ ogrlica koju sam izradila





There is a whole story behind this DIY. I've originally bought this anklet (they are also called ankle bracelets or ankle chains) when my nephew was about one year old for the purpose of being able to cook and watch over him at the same time (You know how little kids are). The anklet served its purpose and by the sound little bells made I knew where he was at any moment.  Perhaps I should have been born in India because I've always loved jewelry with bells or really any jewelry that has a sound to it as well, for example that sound that bracelets sometimes make (if you wear enough of them that is). Anklets in general always remind me on that episode with baby Krishna where is probably where I got the idea in the first place. ( Naturally I'm a complete geek and I have probably read most of the religious texts there are. ) Anyhow, anklet having fulfilled his purpose I've decided to turn it into a necklace with a bit of beads and wire. Pretty simple process, took me very little time to complete it. I like how it turned out. The intention wasn't to use the Christmas colours (red and green) or symbols (bells), but I guess that reference can also be made. Actually, I made it some time ago but I couldn't find it.

Postoji cijela priča iza ove ogrlice. Zapravo je to jedan od onih lanaca koji se nosi okolo gležnjeva ( nagležnica bi bila tvorba analogna narukvici, ali  taj izraz bi rijetko tko upotrijebio, možda  netko zaluđen tvorbom riječi u hrvatskom i koga nazivi prefiksalno sufiksalna tvorba, čisto slaganje i slično čisto griju oko srca, što ćeš, ima čudnih stvorova). Kupila sam ga kad mi je nećak bio skroz mali (oko godinu) da bi u svatkom trenutku znala gdje je (znate kakva su mala djeca, kuhate ručak, a ona nestanu negdje i onda traži po cijelom stanu/kući). Uglavnom poslužilo je svrsi i po zvuku zvončića znala sam točno gdje je u kojem trenutku. Uvijek sam voljela nakit koji proizvodi nekakav zvuk pa čak i onaj zvuk koji dobijete kada nosite više narukvica odjednom, eto možda sam trebala biti rođena u Indiji. Zapravo vjerovatno sam ideju za ovo dobila u onoj episodi kada majka pronađe Krišnu po zvuku baš ovakvih zvončića oko njegovih gležnjeva, koji u hinduizmu imaju i dodatna značenja, ali da ne duljim. ( Naravno da sam štreber koji je pročitao većinu religijskih tekstova) Uglavnom, odlučila sam pretvoriti ovo u ogrlicu i uz malo žice i perlica to bi bilo to, jako jednostavano, sviđa mi se kako je ispalo. Nije bila namjera koristiti Božične boje (crvena i zelena) i simbole (zvona), ali tako je ispalo. Zapravo napravila sam već prije nekog vremena, ali mi ga je netko otuđio (sumnjam na mamu.) 

Primjedbe

  1. What a lovely necklace with a nice story, on that snapshot you looks like a real Indian girl:) Probably, because of make up, I don't know:) By the way, when do you celebrate Christmas in Croatia?
    Have a fabulous time!

  2. Ciao

    Probabilmente hai scattato le tue foto in una zona d'ombra e l'immagine ha una tonalità blu. Quando scatti in situazioni simili, all'ombra, prova a sfruttare la funzione "bilanciamento del bianco" [white Balance] della tua fotocamera... in questo modo avrai colori più reali e brillanti. Per esempio, con la tua foto otterresti questo: ---> qui

    Scrivo in italiano perchè il mio inglese non è un granchè, ma se hai problemi proverò a tradurtelo.

    Ciao ed a presto :)

    1. I know how you feel because I have the same problem with Italian. I can understand it but when I use it...it's not so good. Anyway, thank you for your comment. Today I've used an old cam, so I'm not sure what I have pressed and where should I find white balance on this cam, but thank you for explaining that. One day I really have to learn more about the technical aspect of photography.

    2. Che fotocamera usi per scattare le tue foto?

      Izbriši
    3. Ok, I read in an earlier post, you use a Nikon coolpix P80.

      Here the instructions to set the White Balance:

      If you're not satisfied, to return to the Automatic White Balance, at the point 2 of the explanation, you selec "Auto", and then press OK

      Ciao :)

  5. Dear Ivana, this was a great idea to use this ankle to hear where your nephew was, when he was little :) And as usual im impressed that your creativity develops a new idea after you don´t need furthermore this ankle for your nephew, because this necklace looks great and really good on you.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
