I'm so happy to see the sun was out after the heavy downpour in the morning and the lighting was extremely bad. The weather is a bit cooling now and just right for relaxing. Yeh!! Finally I can get to pamper myself a bit with a 30mins nap but still I must focus not to nap for too long and get my work done for today.
Here is my to do list,
1) Pack my room
2) New shots for some earrings and necklace, Check!
3) Update my Etsy
4) My personal study
5) Enjoy what my dad prepared today...FEAST!
These are the new pics for the earrings> <, nice right.......but I'm not going to upload today as the Etsy is having a traffic jam....headache... always a problem and i hope they really do something about it. So sit back and enjoy as you are the first one to view it ya...hehe...
I always like the way the light glowed at the back, adding some 'Wow' from the other viewer........ It looks so holy, decent and pleasant, really something to showcase your feminie personality. SWEET, SWEET, SWEET!!! The balance was the difficult part during the process of making this earring. As I created them one after another, the number of crystals varied. I have to depend on my eyes to balance the volume of the crystals to create a natural flow of clusters on each side.
I think it is hard to find a correct composition for this kind of earrings, something doesn't seem right. But this pic is one of the best angle Rookie Joy could have. Overall not bad^^ I alway want to invest on a photoshop when I get serious with jewelery making career and there are so many things in my head concerning....well too many for me to list... Not matter what, I still enjoy the process of creating something beautiful but the promoting part is always a headache to me. Never good in it...
This is the pic which I cant get it right but the outcome is still presentable. I do not know the best angle of it and I think also because my existing props are not suitable for the concept. What do you think?

These are the 2 bracelets which Peggy, my sisters bought. Really have to thank her to make a start for my shop. However I’m still hoping to get my sale better as I don’t want to end up like Vincent Van Gogh, who only managed to sell his paintings to his brother Theo... Sad after all...
Rosatre is a very fancy design, tangling a scent of sweetness, something that will make you feel like a woman. Balloons in the sky is more to the modern age that will make you lively and youthful again.

Well...this is my very first time writing a blog...quite nervous...><”
"This blog is about my jewellery making career. I think it is a big change for those who know me as a fine art artist... (Maybe I could write about my painting once I settle down with the jewellery part. Painting is still my passion) but overall jewellery making is also very interesting; especially when I got to know what silver clay was^^. Super interesting!!! I always teach my little students to play with paper clay and now this silver clay is a real hit for jewellery maker "
This is my shop at Etsy, http://www.etsy.com/shop/joypeckjoy
What do you think of the banner.......Can’t imagine that this simple banner took me 3 hrs to complete....headache... but at least I started to get the idea of the software GIMP , a free one to replace Photoshop. Not bad too^^ This banner is only for temporary usage. I have a lot of new ideas for the new one...those ideas have been bombing my mind until I can’t sleep for many nights, so I think it’s best to get them out ASAP!!! Do check up as i really do have some interesting and unique jewellery.
Here are some pics to arouse your curiosity ^^ The one above is titled Moon, the faithful witness. Made with moonstones and aventurine together with sterling silver. Overall I think I have managed to get a balance harmony in this modest design. What do you think?
The necklace above is Innocent Light, another of my crystal series. Innocent light is a piece of simple yet graceful necklace emphasizing the feminine character of yours.
Eternal bliss, a stunning pair of earrings made with swarovski crystals wired round the sterling silver ear loop. Sold one of it to my friend Cindy^^ Thanks!
This lariat is En noir et blanc (Black and white), a contemporary style. Made with swarovski crystals and sterling silver components. I remember I took nearly 3 hrs to make it and this was a nervous experiment with expensive materials. What do you think? I like it quite a lot.
