What got me started

It was March 2008.  The place where I work prepared a couple of month-long programs to celebrate Women’s Month.  One program I attended was an accessory-making seminar.  It was just a mere hour long activity which cost each participant Php 1,000 (USD 22) each for the registration and materials.  The trainers taught us to make simple stuff like a set of pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings.  Then as the saying goes, the rest is history.

Here are a few of my early projects:

Welcome to my blog!

This is another addition to my creative (I hope) attempt to express myself.

Hi! I’m Joanne, wife, mother, professional, and designer of the ClassicSparklers line of jewelry and accessories.

I have another blog which focuses more with my musings of work and motherhood.   Occasionally i’d mention a thing or two about my craft but I felt that the things I make need a spotlight of their own, thus, this blog.

In here you will find the process of how each project is made, my thoughts, my emotions, how I came up with the designs, and the like.

I am looking forward to this endeavor, and I hope that you, too, will enjoy each post.
