A big HI to my Shirleen Jeweliciouss fans and fellow crafters, this wasn't my first post for this page but definitely the first post of my blog specially crafted for my handmade journey.
I started off this expensive hobby when I first emerge into the working life. There, I get to know my gorgeous colleague with the Asia Next Top Model figure and very talented in artsy, fashion and DIY stuff. She amazed me so much and brought me the influences of handmade jewelry. Sadly, she has stop selling and producing her handmade jewelry.
Do you know how does my first piece of handmade jewelry looks like?
(my friends would know because I shared it on my FB's album namely "Expensive Hobby")
Yup, I started off learning from online pictorial and my works was awful, you do notice the jump ring wasn't closed tight right? Blush~ This piece took me whole afternoon to complete. Although the tutorial does tell me how to make this piece, but when I try it with my own clumsy hand, it was difficult. I don't even know how to handle the pliers with jump rings.
However, the excitement looking at my end product was empowering and thus pushing my hobbies to continue with more materials bought in.
Here are some products of my early stage of designing. I was pretty afraid on playing with colors, unsure which charms should be matched. As I practice along then I mastered the skills, then I can design and execute them much efficiently. To be frank, when I looked back my pieces when I started this hobbies, I do feel embarrassed that my design was childish. Nonetheless, without going through that stage, I wouldn't have achieve what I have today.
In a nutshell, don't be afraid on trying, especially the stuff you like.
Here, I would love to thanks my family, friends, customers that supported me along this journey. Your supports and feedback meant alot to me.
~Be daring to pursue your dream~
