The hardest part..

Assembling the elements/materials that I have/made is the hardest part for me! Sometimes I just go blank and no matter what I add/turn/ just doesn't work. I sent the pic of the necklace to my client and then deleted the message because I think there's something wrong with the design. I thought she didn't see the pic, so I disassembled the necklace and tried to make another design. I think I changed it about 5 times!! But it turns out that my client already so the pic before I deleted it and she said that she loved what she saw! So....I just put them all back together again using the first combination. haha! 

Here are the flowers I made for the statement necklace..

 This is what I came up with..

After you put out all your containers of beads and findings while looking for the right have to put them back and clean up!! Another hard task! haha:) But it's all worth it because you know that your client loved what you made! 

I also made these animal lockets. Making them gives me so much joy! 

 School holidays for us here in Sydney...2 weeks of rest before term 3 starts again!:)
 Happy Weekend!

...that I want to share with you. I know some of you will agree and some won't. But I hope these thoughts will help you in some way..

Criticisms should ALWAYS be looked at POSITIVELY. 

How can a group function well if the people involved are not HONEST with each other? 

ISSUES should always be resolved.

It is really hard to know if people are really TRUE. 

Strive to make your own style. If you are just constantly "inspired by" the works of someone, it will not help you that much in developing the style that you can call your own. 

"Utang na Loob" is a pinoy trait that will live on forever. 

Good night everyone! TGIF tomorrow!

Flowery Pieces again...

Just a quick post before I clean the house haha:) 

I made two new floral adornments again. I was inspired by this plant..

Picture was taken by my husband when we went to the Royal Botanic Garden in Melbourne. 

I thought of making lots of petals for each flower..each on top of the other. I came up with two new designs. Here they are: 

More pics on myFB Page 

I will list them soon in my Etsy shop. 
Yahoo, friday already! Have a happy weekend everyone!

Been a long time..

Whaaat?!?! I haven't written anything here for almost a month!! Time really flies so fast. I was really busy finishing orders, making projects and taking care of my family. I woke up early and checked out my blog and was so surprised that my last entry was in May! So here I am trying to make it up to my blog! Hello blogger, nice to see you again! haha :D

For the past month, I've been really addicted to using the UV resin gloss I bought. I kept on thinking of so many things to mix with it! It is really very easy to use and I already bought my own UV lamp for curing it. It's so hard to just wait for the sun to shine just to cure it, esp. now that winter is coming. So far, most of the lockets I made with it  were easily sold. So I think, I will be making more! Here are some accessories I made with the gloss..



And I used it on the tummy of this doll locket! :)

I had this pocket watch base for the longest time. I still didn't know what to do with it. It was from a pocket watch that I disassembled because I used the cover as a mold. I found it again while going through my stash of recyclables! I thought of a romantic design for it. So here it is..I called it "Dance like no one is watching" ..

I will be listing this soon in my etsy shop:)
I also made my first doll locket keychain! A client requested for this design and I was very happy to make it for her! She also asked me if I can put a cute heart inside. She will be going overseas and she wants to give this keepsake to her best friend. Here it is..

I think I'm getting the right shape already for this doll lockets. An "egg-shape" does really make them cuter and more adorable! haha

here's the heart inside! :)
I will be starting on more new doll lockets that I will sending to the Philippines. So another busy month for me. Wish me luck! 

How about you? What are you up to now with your crafting or claying?:) 

Have a happy weekend! Liam and I will just be spending our day at home...wishing daddy will be home soon.
