First, it was baking. Then I get bored after I found out it's more fulfiling eating them rather than making them. That is why my interest is in food and not cooking...lol.
Then, it was selling stuff. Well I have always had interest in business. I guess it runs in the family. But now business is quite slow, probably due to the economic downturn. But I never give up hope. :)
And now, it is jewelry making. I LOVE jewelry. Who doesn't rite. It gives update to your outfit. You can easily jazz up a plain t-shirt and jeans combo with a chunky necklace. And I think people use jewelry to express their sense of style and personality.
Anyway, one day I stumbled upon 2 websites selling jewelry making supply online, Marina Craft and Beading.com.my. Then an idea hit me. I have been searching for brooches to wear with my hijab but I can't find something that i like. So, why not I make one myself.
After spending a sum amount of money buying guide book, tools, beads and findings, I was ready to make my own brooch and more.
And these are what I've made so far...
Fresh water pearl brooch
It was a lot of fun making them and really testing my patience...lol.
My next project will be a bracelet for my mom and some stuff for my blogshop.
And this is the book that I bought to get started with jewelry making. It was really useful.
Now all I hope for is that I won't get bored making jewelry too... :)
