A New Challenge

The Request:  Sparkly bib necklace

The client wanted one that was sparkly and had a garden them.  Not green but colorful.  Now, it is a common thing to think about Swarovski crystals when you say “sparkly” right?  But I did not want to be ordinary but wanted this project to be extraordinary! 

I could not work with diamonds because the client had a budget as well.  So why not Russian diamonds?

 

Not quite. 

But almost there 🙂

What I’ve Been Up To

Sorry for the lack of post, guys! Two weeks ago way up until last weekend, you all know I joined a weddings expo.  And since it would have been my first time to join one, I had to prepare.  From the business cards to the flyers, way up to the products and accessories that would adorn my little vignette.  I can proudly say I’ve gotten lots of queries and I’m quite surprised how many couples are not aware of customized ceremony candles and wedding cords yet 🙂  Well, I’m right here if you need one 🙂 The two full days of being in the expo tired me up so much that I just plopped down in bed when I got home.  Then Monday came and it was back to work, my day job, I mean.  But that did not stop there.  The whole work week was just that: WORK.  There was so much to do and so many deadlines to meet.  I had to stay in the office later than usual and by the time I got home, all the time I had left were for my family. Now that everything’s back to normal, I’m now in my crafty creative mode, finishing some custom orders, which deserves a post of its own.  ‘Til then!
