Handmade Gifts

As 2018 draws to a close (what a year, phew!), wishing you and your families lots of love and happiness.

A long time ago, I took up beaded jewellery making to make gifts. Ten years on, whilst I'm selling online as Sasha + Max, the making of gifts for family and friends still happens, and maybe a few for me too....  

It's of huge satisfaction to now make most of the beads as part of my polymer obsession, and tailor accordingly.

The black and white necklace is for my sister-in-law, who hails from Denmark and has a wonderful modern aesthetic. The beads are my early cane work - stripes a a bit wonky but generally it hangs together, do you think ?

The green necklace is for my Mother - a very stylish 80 something. I was inspired by the some of the one base colour / many shades work of polymer artist Judy Belcher. All the beads are polymer, paired with a Saki Silver clasp  As luck had it, my mother wore a matching modern shift dress on Christmas day that worked perfectly with this necklace.

Everyone was happy !
