Revista Atelierul – Spring swap


In April, I decided to participate in one of the famous handmade swaps that Revista Atelierul holds every season.

I was paired with a lovely lady that I was really happy to meet and created a cheerful, but lady-like necklace for her. I kept it rather simple and hope she liked it – the collage she’s made (see above)  is absolutely gorgeous and she did a better job than I would have made 🙂

This is one of my ‘new wave’ necklaces. I’ve made it with white air drying clay and handpainted it with acrylics, while protecting it with a few coats of glossy varnish. The orange and yellow marbles are made of wood. It is a unique piece of jewellery and really wish it made my new friend’s day.

Unfortunately, my photos did not do her items justice, but I love them so much!


The vintage pillow has little lace ribbons and it is two-sided, while the lingerie sachet has already found a place in my wardrobe.

Have you ever participated in a swap? If you did, how did you find it and did it meet your expectations?
