Shop craft items in Europe and Japan!!!

It’s been quite a while since I last posted a blog. I was on my honeymoon in Europe, and then went back to Japan for a month, so I was away for almost 2 months!!

I have several handmade items that I would like to show in this blog, but first, I want to show some of the items I got while I was away. I thought you would be interested in those craft items 😀

 

[Barcelona, Spain]

We visited a flea market called “Mercat Del Encants” at Plaça de les Glories Catalanes. There were hundreds of shops in the area!! Maybe you can feel how it was like from the picture below!!

Market

Spain is famous for its leather products, so I could find some recycled leather shop.

Here, at this market, I got this leather!! I don’t know what I can make out of this, but I will probably try making something small 🙂

I also got these cute buttons at the market. That will be cute to make accessories for kids or baby clothes? I can even paint them colorfully, and use them to make something for myself 😀

[Nice, France]

I once visited Paris, and also southern part of France, and I really liked the southern part of France!! So, I was thinking to visit the south sometime again! And here, we came to Nice!!

Nice was a lot different from where I visited in the south before, but I liked it 🙂

I looked for a craft shop on the internet and then I found “La droguerie“. We had to walk for about 30 min to get there, but it was nice walking in the town.

The building was cute. We stepped inside… there was a colorful world, spreading in front of my eyes… Cute!!

You can get as many beads and buttons as you want!! The display was also nice.

I got those small beads there! I wanted to buy more things but I just couldn’t pick… Out of time!!

[Yokohama, Japan]

So, I was in Japan for a month. I visited “Kiwa seisakujo” where I bought several items but I’ve already used some of them… I also should have taken some pictures to introduce you the atmosphere, but I forgot to do since it was just so familiar to me… Maybe next time!

What I can show you are these. Very thin chains in black and pink. Aren’t they pretty? I thought I would make a necklace, but I still haven’t made up my mind… I don’t want to waste them, so I really have to think carefully!!

In Japan

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at some photos of beautiful items from abroad!! I will update when I made something out of them 😀

Special accessories for yourself â™¡

Lately, I’ve been in love with making accessories. I’ve found out how exciting to play with colorful beads and wires is!!
This was one of the main reasons why I was a little bit away from blogging though… 😦 Ouch!!

This is what I designed for myself… It was my first time to wear something that has my name on!! I am really happy to wear them 🙂

I also had my hair cut shorter recently ♡ How do you think?? 😀

when I wear it...

 

My partner liked it and he wanted to have one for himself, so I’ve made one for him. He doesn’t wear earrings, so I’ve decided to make a charm. He uses it with keys!!

I’ve got some inquires if I sell them somewhere, so I’ve decided to sell them on my Etsy shop. Both earrings and a charm are available there ♡

If you like the earrings, the size is shown in the picture below- hoops measure 1.2 inches (3cm) in diameter, and the total hight 1.8 inches (4.5cm).

Both earrings and the charms are available in 5 colors 🙂 You can also chose words or names up to 4 letters!!

5 colors

 

If you like the charm, you can also put it on your bags, pen cases or something you like 😀

Of course, you can use it as a pendant top!!

By choosing colors and letters, you can’t find the same one in the world. So, I think this will be a nice gift for your friends, family or somebody special for you, too 🙂 ♡

I hope you will like these personalized name accessories!!
