Christmas and more stuff made!

Wishing all lovely friends a very blessed year ahead. May the Lord watch over you, keep you safe and bless you with lots of happiness every day.  =)

My Christmas this year was a peaceful one. Spent quietly with my DH, watching HK drama serials most of the time.


Had the chance to complete 2 other earrings - "Purplets" (gift for my friend) and a pair of commissioned earrings. Purplets earrings are made of amethyst discs, crystal bicones and crystal droplets. The commissioned earrings are made of rock crystal quartz nuggets, czech flower beads and gold-filled loop.

Comissioned pieces

I have completed 2 of the 5 comissioned pieces these 2 days. Both of them are earrings.  ^_^

This pair of earrings is made of opalets, crystal bicones and Cloisonné beads. They sparkle alot and I love the colour combination of this pair.

This second pair of earrings is made of freshwater pearls and czech glass pink stones. I love the soft look of these little ones.


I also made a new package tag today. Quite happy with the results. =)  Click here to clearer and bigger version.

Breakthrough - Romantic Jasper Bracelet

(For sharper photos, please click here to my Flickr).

This piece is a ChALLenGe! This is my very first attempt to weave 2 filigrees together, add a clay rose (I bought this from the etsy seller, beadsupplies) and surround it with milky seed beads. Then I have the filigrees clawed to a Jasper stone (a gift from Geanie! thanks, dear) and used silver chains to keep it secure. How much work is that? Hours!.. of planning, staring, designing and putting into action.

I am greatly encouraged by the feedback given by the forumers from Starving Jewelry Artists on this bracelet. This forum is the most amazing craft forums I have seen so far. The bond among the members is really strong. =)

Christmas is coming! Have you prepared your heart to celebrate with the Lord?  ^_^

I snagged some treasuries!

Finally, luck is on my side! I snagged 2 treasuries in a single day. Treasury is a page where etsy members get to list their favourite items and share this list with everyone. The treasuries posted usually last about 2-3 days and those with the highest number of clicks (and comments) get to the front page (opening page) of etsy. Definitely a good way to publicise your shop if your item is listed on that hot treasury front page!

Here are the screenshots and their respective hyperlinks. Please take a look if you have the time.  =)

God will make a way

For those out there struggling and hurting - wondering how to cope with the financial crisis, wondering when you will get a job, wondering how to pay the bills, wondering if God hears your prayers....

"God will make a way

Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see 
He will make a way for me 
He will be my guide 
Hold me closely to His side 
With love and strength for each new day 
He will make a way He will make a way 

By a roadway in the wilderness
He'll lead me 
And rivers in the desert will I see 
Heaven and earth will fade 
But His word will still remain 

He will do something new today."
