[一剪梅] 李清照

红藕香残玉簟秋, 轻解罗裳, 独上兰舟。
云中谁寄锦书来?雁字回时, 月满西楼。
花自飘零水自流,一种相思, 两处闲愁。

《青玉案》 辛幼安

Bracelet Memory - Made from Kandice Seeber's beautiful lampwork beads. These beads were received during the period which I was blessed with beautiful memories. When I made these lampwork beads into a bracelet, it has a special meaning to me.... perhaps that explains why I wear it alot! :)

(Thanks to Brackendesigns for the help in the image :) )

And the bracelet with the necklace -

The beautiful memories will always be in my heart.

My latest set - necklace and bracelet

The necklace

1st pic - the focal

2nd pic - the necklace!

The bracelet

This set of flower theme necklace and bracelet took me about 3 days to complete. Not a full 3 days but still they were long hours invested. :P

The bracelet's design was taken from a Jap bead magazine. Did minor modifications and the final look is shown above.

The necklace was a further modification. The focal of 3 flowers and purple teardrop beads was designed by myself. Have never worked on such design before and hence more time was required to come up with something that was satisfying to my eyes. ^_^

The necklace marks a new page in my beading journey. Finally I see myself able to try something more complicating and delicate. I have also gained more confidence.

Lots of thanks to all my friends who believed in me and encouraged me with all their hearts. Not forgetting my beloved husband who would drive me to all the bead shops in Singapore to get the parts I want. =)

Some of my Handmade Jewellery

1st Piece - Elegant

"Elegant" was made somewhere middle of July this year. Consists of Indicolite swarovski crystal being the centerpiece, surrounded by swarovski round and bicones, as well as glass beads. The centerpiece was ordered from an online shop from Belgium. The opal bicones are given to me by a very good friend of mine who knows that I am crazy over crystal beads. =) This is one of the pieces that I really love.

2nd Piece - Stonedust Bracelet

This bracelet was inspired by the designs of a jewellery maker from eBay. The picture did not turn out as good as I wanted it to be. Made of goldstone (had the wrong impression initially that the beads were jasper), bali beads and swarovski crystal beads.


3rd piece - Antique

This piece is called "Antique". Something simple. I like the flowery focal bead, it's a Japanese laser made bead. The rest of the components include swarovski crystal beads and seed beads.

Latest Creation - Intricate

This necklace is made of Shiana's silver rose pendant, bali beads and swarovski crystals. The rose is big and heavy, about 1 inch wide. Took me quite a while to figure out how to incorporate such a huge item. This is the end result after 1 hr+ of meddling. Quite pleased with the way it turned out.
