hey everyone!

First BIG NEWS!!

I'm opened to commissions from now on.

My account is: simplynerdilicious [!at]

Please put @ where the [!at] is, and it will work! =)
I'm so excited..

in the last couple of days I've been working with very inspirating materials.. copper thread and leather.
I had these leather leftovers from a necklace EPIC FAIL I tried last week and I wanted to do something with it.. it was too pity just throw them away and such a terrible waste!
So I thougth about what I could do with some leather strips and, except some dirty things (LOL!) I came up with the idea of making earrings or some othe sort of jewelry.
So i grabbed my mum's metallic threads and chose the copper, copper is wonderful with leather IMHO.

I share the results with you.

Leafy pendan
t - $ 6.00
Size: 6.5 cm long (2.3 inches) - the leaf is about 3 cm (1 inch) long
Materials: copper thread and vintage leather


Simple Leather Earrings - $4.50 each couple
Size: 6 cm (2 inches) long
Materials: Vintage Leather and Copper thread


Spiral Earrings - $ 6.00 each couple
Size: 6 cm (2 inches) long

All these items are completely hand made by me.
The leather was stiffened in water without adding any other substances.

I ship internationally and I package everything in the safest way possible but I'm not responsible for anything that happens to the item after I 've left the post office.
Shipping rates are $ 3.00 per item + $ 0.50 with another item.

If you have any question please feel free to contact me at my email adress:

Gear for Real Geeks

I haven't posted in a while, but I've been trying some things i really like.
I told myself that I should come up with something very geeky to be consistent with my initial purpose and with the name of this blog.
So, after sewing a multi-purpose white elastic belt I crafted some things from old happy floppy disks which decided to be my sacrifice for this noble deeds..

and without further ado, I would like to introduce you.. my FLOPPY DISK ART!

this was the first try, i had some trouble initially with gluing all parts correctly but it came out a lovely and cute star..

these earrings are made from the actual plastic case of the disk, I had this bunch of colorful disks I decided to use them.. this is recycling and giving a new life to objects =)

I want to say something about it, it is important to recycle and think about all the problems that our economies are creating by increasing the production of consumer goods which produce waste and help destroy our wonderful planet. We should think more about energy saving, renewable energies and alternative lifestyle.
Supporting recycled and upcycled items can help in a way..

Look at this SITE - STORY OF STUFF to discover a lot of stuff about this..and learn how we can help!

Last news for today, I created a paypal account and as soon as I have enough items I'll open the etsy shop.. stay tuned!

Jeans brooch

another one!

This is a flower brooch made of jeans, a very heavy and thick fabric, actually not very easy to sew by hand and a beautifl yellow button with a little flower shape on it.
Again, the picture quality is horrible, but my camera hasn't come to life again yet, sorry about that!



Moar brooches

Hi, I'm back again with some new creations.
The pictures are horrible because I don't have my camera with me and I have to use the webcam instead, and the quality is really poor.
I hope they give you an hint of what they are, and I will update the pictures as soon as I can grab a camera, promise.

So, these are some rose-shaped tulle brooches I did using a tutorial I found on the amazing site [ BURDA STYLE ], and they're much better than the first one I posted, about 3 - 5 cm wide decorated with beads of different kind ans size.

The blue one is the first I've made, then comes the green and the purple one.. I'm pretty satisfied with the last one, that's why I put more details.

I hope you'll like them.


Tulle Brooch

As first entry I am going to show you my very first tulle brooch.

It was pretty much an experiment, I was aiming at something more flower-like, which I achieved later, but all in all I'm quite satisfied with the result.
It is very simple, two different stripes of tulle in two different colours and size.

Please leave any comment, comments and critique are very much welcome here.
yours sincerely,


Hi everyone..
finally I'm starting this new adventure, that is creating a sewing/crafting blog to show things I create with the thought of opening an etsy shop sooner or later.

Firstly, I would like to introduce you this blog from its basics, the name.
Simply Nerdilicious, this comes from a play on words I said once and I thought it really suits me well. I'm a bit of a nerd/geek type, but I think you can be it with style.. this is the concept behind this name.. BE NERD WITH STYLE!

Secondly, I would like to introduce myself
My name is Floriana, I'm 27 and I come from Italy. I'm currently studying Translation in Trieste (Italy) for English and German.
It may strike that I don't study fashion or something the like, but this has always been a passion for me ever since I was a child, my granma worked as a taylor and my mum always sewed our clothes.. so I've always been fond of this art. I really believe this is a great way to express one's creativity.

well.. the greeting ended, I inform you that I'm going to post soon some of the things I have done, and let you know as soon as I will put up a shop or a paypal account, just in case you are interested in some of my creations.

I wish you all goodnight,
