Flower hairband

This hair band is perfect for any girl with long hair. The method of making is included.

This was my second trial to draw out the graphic solution. Well, I think it wasn't too bad. I drew all the shapes in Words, then retouch in Photoshop. I think I won't have many times in this as my college is about to start, only 1 week left. Try my best to draw out as much as I can then post it on the blog if I have time.

Romantic Garden

I have made these a long long time ago. But I tried to draw a picture showing the method. Well, this is my first trial to draw out the graphic solution. If you don't understand the picture, you can leave me a message, I'll try my best to help you.

You can find the materials on this website:
grove beads.

The length of bracelet depends on the size of your wrist. You can vary the length by increasing the number of motif or the length of the string of rose quartz chips. You can try using other colours and gemstones, like the other one I made using citrine chips. For example, amethyst chips with light amethyst 5305 beads and dark amethyst 5301 beads. Just choose the colour you like.

Sparkling Aquamarine

This bracelet was made a long time ago. I think this was the first one I made using wire. I wasn't so keen on wire work at first, I was rather focusing on weaving techniques with seed beads and crystal beads to make motifs.

This one was especially made for myself, as I don't always wear jewellery like necklaces. But I do like bracelets and rings, so I have made a lot of those. I will upload some picture of rings I made later.

Gifts & Magazine

I have received 2 packages on Saturday. One from my friend, she posted it before she's going on her trip around Europe, and the other one is the Japanese magazine I ordered online a week ago.

The magazine has a fabulous section on gemstones and great necklaces made of gemstones.

Ocean's Blue

I have made another bracelet, ready to be shipped to my friend in Malaysia. I was going to meet her in London but she won't have time after the trip to Europe. This bracelet would be the last one to be made as I run out of STS toggle clasps. I couldn't make anything before I order some new stocks as I particularly like to use toggle clasps (easier to use than trigger or lobster clasps).

I realised I haven't talked about why I have made many bracelets recently. First thing is bracelets are shorter compared to necklaces, hence easier to make. Plus, I have bought some good quality sterling silver wire 0.5mm, which is half hard. It's hard enough for these wire workings as I have used 0.5mm STS wire which was softer before, and I found it's too soft. Well, just get some experiences working with wire. Then, I would step forwards to make something more complicated.

I made the stamp of Devil in the night after the Angel stamp, I wasn't too lazy after all.

Then, I tried to make a short story using these 2 cute stamps:
This is what I think as my college starts in October. Then, I would have loads of coursework and revisions to do. T.T

Here comes something different, no jewellery but a stamp. I haven't made a lot recently as I focus on jewellery making.

Well, I drew this a long time ago but I just lazy to make the stamp. This cute angel was not originally designed by me, I think it's from a Japanese magazine. Forgive me for forgetting the magazine name as it's drawn a long while ago. I also have the design of the devil, I would make it if I'm not too lazy.

The first time I came across handmade stamps was a Japanese blog that have many designs of stamps and artworks. If you are interested you can visit the
blog, but it is in Japanese though. However, the stamps on the blog are really great pieces of works.

Beautiful Butterfly

This was made a long time ago. Well, just put this up so that I don't miss too many posts. This was made especially for my mother so that she can put it on her new LV handbag. I would say Swarovski crystals are really sparkling and good quality. Actually, I made 2 of these, one was red which was given to my sister. We don't live together so I can't take a photo of it.

Just made another bracelet for my friend in Malaysia. Her birthday is on 14th, although it's late, I hope she wouldn't mind when she gets it.

I think the design is too simple, don't know what I can add on to make it more special. I'll think about that, and maybe add something on it.

The bracelet was made of faceted amethyst which would sparkle and round fluorite beads. Amethyst is stone of mind and love. It enhances attention and memory and also increase people's confidence. Perfect for my friend who just starts to work in Malaysia.

I made this necklace 2 days ago. This was not the original design, it was supposed to be more grand in appearance and to suit my mother. However, I changed it as I think I should make one which is more casual and it'll fit any outfit.

This necklace was made of moonstone and crystal quartz. Moonstone is a stone of wishes, intuition, and balance. It's perfect for someone who need to soothe and balance the emotions, the stone is also believed to bring success in love.

I made this long before summer. However, I always forgot to post this.
I have the idea of making this bracelet, but having difficulties to find beads with big holes. So once I found these gemstones with big holes, I made this summer-feeling bracelets. This was easy to make, just knot using hemp. But the hemp has to be thick to give the chunky looking.

After having vacation in Malaysia, I went shopping in London last week and found these red/orange gemstones with big holes. I made another one.

I have a friend from Malaysia studying a summer course in Sheffield. She will leave in early of October. Therefore, I made her a bracelet as a gift. Hope she would love this.

Well, I decided to give this to another friend whose birthday is in September. Hope she doesn't mind it's too late when I ship it out.

Sitting in front of all the beads and materials I have, I couldn't think of what to make. When I searched for inspiration from books, I scanned through a dolphin, just realised I have silver charm of it. Then, I decided to make a necklace.

The necklace is easy to make, just choose the colour, gemstones and charm you like.

Ocean's Pearl

This was made especially for my mother as a Christmas present.
It can be a necklace or a bracelet.

I like the idea of 2-way wearing.
It can be quite formal to wear it as a necklace.
However, when it's a bracelet, it's more casual.
It's simply elegant!
