On Thursday I've showed my youngest sister how easy it is to make jewellery with beads. She enjoyed it a lot (what surprised me since she such a quick child and you can not "use" beads in a quick way) and after picking most girly beads from my stock she created a bracelet and a necklace. The heart is made of polymer clay (the same I've used to make the kittens for my earrings) and it's with the letter Z for Zorro or Zuzanna (Susanne it English) :3

My sister's Zuu's set made by herself :)

Then, on Saturday, while having a break in studying I made a pair of earrings similar to the ones I've made for my sister Kate (can't show them now, they'll be a present :3). I've meant to tangle the last lace of the beads around the two previous laces. I've added the big red bead also (my <3's idea) to make a contrast.

I like how they look but since I want to consider tangling things in my next jewellery stuff I'd prefer to know more opinions about this idea.
I will leave this pair as it is now but if you think that they're too tangled, look to heavy or just seem that I've made few mistakes while doing them, tell me so - I'll take that into consideration while making another ones :D



The journey began

One Sunday (18th of January '09) I woke up with the inner need of making something (at last) out of all those beads and stuff I've collected. Unfortunately, as it usually is, when I sat down to work it appeared that the needles I had are all too big and the smallest beads can not possibly go through them and the wire was too delicate and I had only very small and very big beads lacking the medium ones... It made me feel a bit sad :( I've been collecting stuff from some time and still there was not everything there. So I left it all and started to read (Harry Potter :P).

I came back to those jewellery issues when it was dark outside and I've decided that there must be something I could possibly make from all those things I had after all. I've took my mum's old necklace pearls (are those really pearls? ;)) and a bit of thicker wire (that was really 'a bit' - should have bought more...). I wanted to do something immensely simple, something that won't make me hate creating my own jewellery but would be a nice start after that not-so-nice beginning of the day. And taa-daam! Maria Antonina appeared after about 10 minutes :D Great start :3

Then, while watching a movie, "Lawendowe Wzgórza", I was wondering if it'd be handy to make some of the beads myself using polymer clay. I bought a set of colours some time ago and have hardly used them. So I've made few stars (gosh, they're awful) and an idea with cats hanging on their tails came to me. I've made them from one piece of clay (so they won't have weaker points). After putting them into a hot water for 15 minutes I've painted them with acrylics a bit and then added a layer of transparent varnish (actually nail polish :D). They've appeared to be very light so I think I'll use polymer clay for making not only little figures like those cats but also some fancy and big beads that will bring viewers attention :) I've never played much with polymer clay but I think it would be a good idea to start.

Yesterday I went on Beading Jewellery Workshops organized in our empik. There was a lady who was always ready to help and few people, also children, eager to create something in this, unknown for them?, way. There were beads, wires and other stuff for us to use for free. However, there was no place for making someone's mind work creatively - when you was thinking and inventing other ladies were using the beads you wanted too. So it was a rather quick working process and the idea, good or bad, had to come fast and could not be possibly changed on the way - there was no time for that. The first idea that came to me was, of course, earrings. I saw interesting ones some time ago - except of a 'normal' earring thingy they also had a ring all around. And this was exactly what I did. Although not made in superb circumstances, the effect is good enough to be told about here :D Well... OK... I must admit - I like those ones and the look fab when you have them on. Those glittering circles and a candy-like bead are sooo in my type *^__^*


Then I've made a simple bracelet for my little sister so she could give it to one of her toys (they need to have a decent jewellery; you knew that, didn't you?). The bracelet was made using a wire but now I can clearly see that it would look a lot better if made with fishing line :) at least they would look better then if worn by a human being but a plush crocodile looks nice in it as it is now ^^

Oaza (Oasis) on Clementine. Henry VIII looks a bit jealous :D

My friends Kuba and Bartosz were there with me and they've appeared quite useful :) Kuba would be a good jewellery maker too!


Oh! And because I've actually started doing something I've also invented a logo for my artisan crafts :3 Nice, isn't it? :)



I've been interviewed :3 wo-hoo! :D

Contained - Illustration Friday

I know it's not a new work but it fits the IF's theme too much to ignore it :)

This drawing shows the contains of man's and woman's heads. I've made a little research about what may be there:
--> Woman's - a lot of paths, impossible to be remembered to anybody else than herself; everything is on it's place.
--> Man's - simple&wide "roads" and big rooms; a lot of sexy ladies and a very very big mess; there also have to be a fridge full of beers and a big flat screen TV. However there's also a place for the One and Only and a place where girls have no access :)

Those two, so different, heads have something in common though..

Let's have a bit closer look :)

There has to be a cat somewhere in the girl's head :D

Pizza and beer

The secret :)



What D&D character am I? :)

Taken from Mollinda.


I Am A: Chaotic Good Human Sorcerer (4th Level)

Ability Scores:







Chaotic Good A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. Chaotic good is the best alignment you can be because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. However, chaotic good can be a dangerous alignment because it disrupts the order of society and punishes those who do well for themselves.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.

Adelaida's year 2008 in pictures and photos

I saw on my friend's blog (Hanasu) something very interesting: a summary of a whole year in pictures and photos. Since I think the visual side of the world works better than the spoken/written one I want to share my 2008 year with you too :3

I'll present each month by the best art created by my and the best photo taken in that specific month. So here we go:


"Mombi's Pot" made for a Collectible Card Game. I had some hard time doing it (since I'm a bit lazy) but I love the final effect!

It's a tasty one - self-made gingerbread syrup for coffees :3 I could add a LOT of it into my coffee mug :)


I think that in this work I moved to the next level of my digital faerie works.

Me + <3 :3="" again="" br="" go="" holidays="" i="" on="" snowboard="" there="" wanna="" winter="">


First such big work with so many details made in a quite new way for me :) Final effect is stunning :D



One of my favourite traditional printings. Of course hated by my teachers ;)

Photo made during drawing classes. You can see our fabulously shaped model ;]


That was a big one. And the first time we painted not only male model (Rysio) but also a women! wow :3

And a sketchy sketch to that painting on a school exhibition! I'm so proud :)


Oil faerie paintings rule!

At my grandparents' place, the one in the country. I could sit there and just watch the clouds moving all day long.


One of my favourite drawings from an art camp in Chelmno, Poland. Shitty place. Nice cats :)

And my favourite photo from that camp :) taken by Bartosz


Painting digitally as I paint with oils. Looks nice :)

Although we started painting Bartosz's room before I went on the art camp - we had still sooooo much to do! Who painted the room? Me, Bartosz, Kuba, my sister Kate, the Monstrous Princess and Kate the Smoking One :D


Simple idea, not even mine, but the result... !

Still working on the room. Bartosz goes crazy :P


Month of ill and sick people as I see it now. This picture was made for Karemelancholia from DA who is very ill :/

And here's my little sister, Zuu, at the hospital. It really makes me wanna cry when I remember her staying there :(


Finally started working on my diploma project works, at least started sketching :) This one is truly magical for me!

Taken at my grandparent's place - a banknote from the very old times... And it's so NOT in Polish (though it's from Polish "territory")


Evidence that quick works can look good too :) But I prefer making those slower ones ;)

A picture taken while making a little photographic session of our friend, Eve. She would be a nice faerie :)

It's good to remember years like this :)


PS. Bartosz's room is still not finished ;) (But the wall with my painting is!)


Pigs and re-thoughts

Today we, me + my <3, went on a Guinea Pigs' Show. I don't find them cute, in opposite to hamsters, but I wanted to see different breeds of this animal since I saw only the one my friend had (with an out-of-bed furstyle :P). I've made few photos of the more interesting ones:

This one looks like it has a hole in it's head :D

Bad hair day...

Am I a little hippo or what?



2 days ago I watched the "Twilight" again and wondered what's with it that I like so much. Since I went to bed almost just after the movie I written my reflections on my cell phone. And here are they:

I watched the movie again and now I can say it's all about The Love Story that is impossible to happen in reality. It's this love full of secrets and future plans unknown to anybody, even the lovers.
Those loves are always based on the things that disappear as first in the real world, when a relationship is up and running for a while. In real life those secret moments and plans are the things you need to care about; it's something you have to always keep in mind so it won't fade away.
But when you go further and deeper it appears that all those love stories - both in real life and in the imaginary world - are the same. They both have this magic, this THING that makes you want to elope just to keep the moment forever.
However, we often forget about the good things we have, or may have, and fall for love stories created by other people's imagination. Forgetting that the love shown there always somehow misses the everyday life's problems; doesn't know bad days or not-so-good humours. The love we may have in the real life, in opposite, has those features and looks much more vibrant with them.
What's more - there's nothing better than a kiss after a meaningless fight ;)

While re-writing it I thought that the pursuit of ideal love sounds like a teenage attitude. Sometimes I feel a bit retarded in this field of life - watching/reading about couples, imagining how good they may feel together. BUT! I can also divide real life with my <3, who is not a vampire nor a wizard, from the stories made by someone else. It's good to make your own story *nods*

But I always wanted to be fairy! XD


spread the love
