Bags Galore!



Bags! yes, I have a bag fetish. Cant afford the real thing, so SW bags will make do. Who doesnt love bags ?

the More the Merrier!

"less is more" does not apply here.

One, two, and three...


I made not one, not two, but three pendants!
Was browsing thru some trinkets at a departmental store, the far end corner of my eyes caught something sparkling. These pendants, (in crystals and light amethyst colors) were selling for USD90! Cheapo me, or rather
crafty me, *smarty* me [wink wink], decided to make it me-self. It is quite simple to make,
not a lot of SW, and string it thru an 18" sterling silver necklace. So here they are. Pretty maids in a row. In fact, I made two whilst riding on the train on my way to work. Call it time management, or kiasu-ness in me. I am capitvated with it. Great gifts too.

something ole, something pink


It has been a while since I last posted.
Summer is over and it is Fall now. Days are
getting shorter and nights longer.
I hope I can find the time to do beadings,
as there are quite a few things that I would
like to make for my bestest friends for Christmas.
Work is taking up so much of my time. I know,
it is not healthy. I have to find a balance. Yet,
it is easier said than done indeed.
oops, this is a craft corner, not a whiney corner.
sori, sis.. :)

Since October is Pink Ribbon month, I did something
Pink; ear-rings and braclet from cloisonne
[ i like cloisonne, it feels Oriental ]
and a matching pink ring.
the ice-cream.. isnt it yummy?
the other bracelet - tanzanite/olivine - is something ole.
i made three other sets! -
that's v kiasu ..

Autumn 2008 Beads Friend



Yoko Hasegawa san bought this latest issue of Beads Friend for me from Japan.

I like to read beading magazines from Japan. The designs are simple to make and

yet elegant.
