Keepsake Jewelry

I'm kind of on a roll with the fingerprint themed projects right now. Probably because I living far from my parents, and miss them sooo much? Or because my kids are growing and seemed like they don't need me? Ah what a suck life... I'm getting old. Truth be told, I have more fun with 'adult' kids. They are kind, helpful with household, indenpendent. I love them so much !

Eventhough I still thinking about the past, when they were little and completely dependent on me. And I wonder what will be become of me when they move out and no longer need me. I miss the cute kids who used to place me at the center of their world.
This mind pushed me to try fingerprint jewelry. Something to remember, close to my soul and be a never ending memory.
Above is my oldest daughter's fingerprint. She is 19 now and starts her trainee as design draftsman soon. I'm proud of her and happy that she doesn't want to moving out yet. Thanks God !!!


I just adore these pendants. So simple and sweet. Yes, I'm having great time work with fingerprint. Such a feeling --- I have been a very good mama ---- LOL Whatever the reason, I Love my Work !!!!

You see some examples I did.

If you need something to hang on with the sweetest memory of your kids, family or your loved one... just go to my shop here . I can make other size, model or if you want to have your own design,  don't hestitate to contact me. I'll be happy to make a very unique and special fingerprint for you, as special as your loved one.

Have a great day and enjoy your time surrounding with people you love !

If Damselfies fly to Bollywood :o)

I decided to push my mojo a bit. Erin from http://earrings-everyday.blogspot.co.uk/ creates new monthly challenge. It calls We're All Ears Inspiraton !!!

First Friday of the Month she will share an inspiration. February is Damselfies Inspiration.
02.2014_damselflies-heart-shape

We should make earring based from that and post it on our blog on third Friday of the month. 2 weeks work time :-) Then post it on Erin's blog, where another pieces shown also. Fabulous artist and creative pieces.   More about it please read http://earrings-everyday.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/were-all-ears-february-winners.html

Here is mine. Peridot Swarovski and silver wire. Wire wrapping of course!


Honesty as I saw the inspiration picture, my mind got stuck to such elegant rich and bling earrings. I don't know why... maybe the happy colour of those damselfies? Or ugly weather of winter? I would prefer to dance ala Bollywood, wear a fantastic gala gown and enjoy warm weather !!!!

Now, take deep breath...let's party begin !

I learn crochet.

It began as my son, William, got beginner crochet in craft lesson in the school. He is at 4th grade primary school. Last monday, he showed me the chain stitch. 20cm long.... and 1,30m in 4 days !!!! He loves crochet :-)  and I don't know anything about crochet :-(
So I arranged a small workshop with a friend, who is doing crochet for more than 15 years. William and I went to her on Saturday and learned our corporated crochet. Took about 3 hours (beside laugh and funny things) and we are ending with half woll hat / beanie. It was really Fun!!!! William is totally happy, me too.


The 2 colors belongs to William. The blue one is mine. They use difference yarn.. mine is thicker than William's.

 This white flower is my next adventure. It looks terrible. Need more days and time ;-)


If our wool hat ready, I promise to show you. But I don't know... when!
