Nimue - Sky Blue Topaz pendant necklace and dangle earrings wire wrapped in sterling silver. Gemstone jewelry set by Arctida.

Blue Topazes are among my most favorite gemstones and the jewelry pieces made with blue Topazes are also my best sellers. So I thought I will make it easier for my customers and offer a Sky Blue Topaz jewelry set in my Arctida shop for those of you who wants to have both necklace and earrings :)

Nuno felt My first piece of clothing - Nuno felted top merino wool and silk in Sky blue and Mint green

As some of you already know I’ve started making handmade felt clothing and accessories in December 2018 and I’ve finally had a chance to photograph my first piece of clothing on a model. I’ve finished this summer top in March but only now had the time to take pictures. The top is made of finest 16 microns Merino wool and lots and lots of silk. The decor is silk, viscose and bamboo fibers and wool yarn.

Hydroponic Radishes - my first experience with growing radishes in hydroponic system

My first hydroponic radish experiment. There is no soil in there, only LECA pebbles to support the plants and hydroponic solution to provide nutrients and water. The radishes are 5 weeks old and there are several of them ready to be harvested. As it is winter here and we have almost no sun I used LED lamps.

Fingerless gloves Felted wool mittens Wrist warmers Natural plant dyed Merino wool and Silk

My little sis wanted a pair of fingerless mittens to match her new boots and I thought it would be a fun project to try and made them for her 😊 The mittens are wet felted and made of soft merino wool with Tussah silk and natural viscose fibers decor. The wool was white in color from the start and I dyed the mittens with Henna plant to match the boots in color 🤓

Fused glass art - my first try at making dichroic glass and fused glass cabochons

Learning new skills by trying out glass fusing for the first time 🥰 4 of the fused glass cabochons have different dichroic glass pieces and the lime green and turquoise blue one is made entirely of transparent glass. I think I can see some silver jewelry pieces with them in the future. Here are the finished cabs.

Argentium sterling silver wide ring band with abstract Celtic inspired pattern.

New shiny ring in my shop! This time it is a hand forged massive textured Argentium sterling silver ring band with abstract Celtic inspired pattern. As it is Argentium silver and not traditional sterling silver the band it self and the pattern were fused and not soldered in place. Which is what I like so much about Argentium and off course the fact that it is a tarnish-resistant sterling silver that is 100% recycled.

Felted wool slippers for children - My first try at making shoes!

I love working with wool, love the versatility and all the endless possibilities what it offers. You can make the softest baby clothing and blankets with it but at the same time one can make shoes, carpets and even housing (Yurt). So here I thought I’ll show you My first try at making shoes 😊 Felted slippers for my son made of Merino wool and for the soles I've recycled/upcycled my old leather jacket.
