Drum roll please!! For those who have been actively following Shirleen Jeweliciouss, you must have known that I just registered my business to SSM. Thanks to all my beloved friends and customers supporting me in the past 1.5 years. You all has been the motivation for me. At the beginning, I was just selling my handmade jewelry to keep some fund flowing in so that I can continue my passion in jewelry design With all of your support, I am getting serious on my jewelry business. From joining pop up booth, setting up my store at Marketplace at Zalora (there is more coming up which yet to reveal), I am grateful for the support of my loyal customers. I am gonna leaking an exciting new for you all. I am in the midst of preparing the rewards for my beloved customers and my future customers. Therefore, be patient on receiving your surprise. ;p
Okay, now I am gonna share you my experience on how to register sole proprietorship business to Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia (SSM). This shall benefit for those interested to sign up, especially Penangite.
First, I browse through SSM page to understand the criteria and what to prepare on registering.
Although as much as I love my gold jewelry in antique feel with a little bit tarnished effect, but I do wish to reverse my jewelry back to its shiny form. I came across this Pop Sugar site and found some tips there, thus I am so excited to try it out with my gold bracelet. (This bracelet was created just for me to experiment how good was the materials, thus I didn't put on any shield coat like my sold jewelry)
Note: Don't do this on your gold jewelry purchased from my store Shirleen Jeweliciouss because this will remove all the shield coating I had put on.
Before I share you the recipe, here is the before and after comparison:
You must be curious how I come out the length I set for my necklace. Na! I am not some kind of genius. There is a guide chart I have always refer to and of course try it on myself to confirm.
This useful picture I got online has been very useful during my designing journey and I believe this could be useful as your online jewelry shopping guidance.
Chokers (14 inches-16 inches)
Chocker length of necklace falls perfectly around the base of your neck. Simple chocker necklace usually go well with any outfit and any jawline. A high neck top or strapless top could be the best match. However, everyone's necklace could be different in size and some choker necklace you bought at boutique might not fit everyone's neck. To customize your own choker necklace here, measure your neck length and add 2cm to it. It will fit you well.
Princess (16-18 inches)
This is the most common length of necklace, it falls beautifully just below the base of your throat and sit on your sexy collarbones. It usually fits you comfortably, including larger neck wearer. Princess necklace is perfect for crew and high neckline outfit, everyday outfit like button down blouse or even simple T-shirt.
Matinee (20-24 inches)
Matinee necklace falls gorgeously on the chest, blouse or dress. Definitely the right choice for casual or business outfit. This length giving the slimming accent by drawing the eye in a vertical line of the body. So as Opera necklace.
Opera (28-38 inches)
Opera necklace can be wore as a single long strand or wrapped around your neck twice as a double strand necklace. A perfect piece to accessorize your crew or high neckline outfit, blouse, dress or even turtleneck sweater.
Lariat or Rope (Over 45 inches)
This perfect length allows the necklace to be transformed into multi-strand necklace or bracelet (in fact for bracelet, all the necklace can be transformed into at least double-strand bracelet depending on your wrist size). To make it more dramatic and more fashion look, you may add an over-sized pendant, charm necklaces or any necklace around your neck.
So your face's shape suitable for which kind of necklace?
Typically can wear any length of necklace.
Choker length will soften and diminish the sharp angle of heart-faced chin.
Choker length will shorten the length of the jaw and thus smooths the angles on rectangular faces. Large beads at the base of the neck help shorten the look of the face too.
Longer necklaces such as Opera would elongate the jawline and create the V-shapes to compliment the face.. Try to avoid collar, choker and princess length as it will accentuate the roundness of the face.
Princess, matinee, opera and rope length necklace are ideal since they will create a vertical line to lengthen the face.
Here is my two cents on how to pick the right necklace length It may vary according to personal preference, outfit and necklace design.
Thanks for reading and I hope to hear your opinion too!
