I've been experimenting with two kinds of Rose....the pink one is a more elaborate design, done with very thin yarn and 0.75 hook (me thinks it coyuld have had more petals).
The yellow one was easy peasy pattern and done in less than 20 minutes with wool and 3.00 hook

Swarovski and crochet ring

I am not AT ALL into gold. But I have loads of these Swarovski encrusted blingy bits. So I played with one tonight and made this ring. It is cotton crochet around gold rings with gold and Swarovski main peace.

Embossed paper pendant

I know this looks like metal...but it is made out of paper ( see the last image, it is the back and it shows the coiled paper) ...then embossed and has wire on the outer edge.
Looks like it is metal but it is soooo light to wear :)

Cigarette Paper Beads

 Just to experiment, I tried making these beads last night - made with cigarette papers...and they feel soooo natural/comfy to wear. So I expect a whole lot of new stuff is going to be made very soon in my studio :)
These beads have a mat varnish on them.

New Name

After a looong time deliberating, I have finally changed my art and craft business name from Magic On The Rox to ROCKOU.
My grandparents used to call me ROCKOU - so it is precious for me...and still one of my cousins call me that (We are still as close and crazy as we were together when we were toddlers). So I was looking to find a name that is shorter that Magic On The Rox....but would still represent who I am and one that would be good for all my artistic endeavours. So I chose Rockou :))
