brand new week

taken from my jewellery notebook, where i scribble ideas, note down orders & a to-do list i never really bother

I love Mondays, the fresh start of the week :)
& I love the bead shopping trip last weekend!

For the rest of the week, with more beads added to my collection, I'll be in jewellery making mode.
New & restocked old ones, it's quite a lot to sort through... can't wait to get this done.
Among the new beads are shiny-cum-matte glass pearls, in the most awesome turquoise shade ;)
will show it here one day!

I have got a local buyer who loves pearls, she asked me to make her a set, here's what I came up with:

 Kept it simple with 2 hearts dangling off :)

I rarely make earrings these days, once in a while I accept requests and this pair is made to match the bracelet or worn as it is.
I don't have fresh water pearls in teardrop shape so I suggested cream coloured glass pearls, topped off with Swarovski crystal on top. 

Talking about custom orders, here's another one I made recently, one of my favourite designs ever!

Theme: Dark Angel

It's made of layers of chain, with 2 of them weaved together.
I tried it on as well, it's a bit small for me but I just wanted to take a photo of it to show the hanging chains :)

I'm always happy to receive custom requests, extremely flattering that buyers trust me in putting together their ideas :) at times I don't even believe it, sounds like something too good to be true for someone as ordinary as me... 

Thank you ♥

april round up


April was great! I have been more focused on my online businesses after the opening of the boutique (where I had rented a table for my jewellery). So far that has been doing alright, taking into consideration the shop is still very new, I'm quite optimistic sales will pick up very soon! :)
fingers crossed.

11 new items were listed in my etsy store over the past month, not bad I would say. But since I have been eyeing some new beading materials lately (intricately designed Cloisonne beads in the most amazing colours!) & am planning for a huge splurge in July, so I better be working hard these coming 2 months if I were to shop without guilt by then! :)

♥ The Book Bed!   more funky beds can be seen here

I'm so glad tomorrow's appointment is cancelled, yay! Just as well as I'm feeling a bit under the weather right now, muscle aches are not fun :(

Good thing I have wrapped up most of my local custom orders, with only 1 last blue bracelet to make, after that I should hope to snuggle in bed with a good book in hand.

Can't wait...
