Rainbow Necklace

Here's a yummilicious necklace I created for Cindy C. She loved the rainbow jelly beads and asked whether they can be made into a necklace.

N21 Rainbow Jelly Necklace
Length (from clasp to split ring): 43cm

This is how the necklace looks like from the back.

I find this a really cheerful and fun necklace. :) Hope you like it, Cindy!

Talking Beads?

Kenny asked me this during the fair in college:

"Chatterbeads.. hmm.. your beads can talk wan ah?"

I gave him that -__-" look. Haha.

I thought of naming this site Chatterbeads because of how I can talk nonstop about beading with another bead enthusiast friend when I first started this idea of online business. I wanted names like beadology or beadophile but they were all taken (some by people who just put up ONE post only). JL insisted that I should name it noobbeads (because he claims I'm a noob at everyhing). -__-" I refused.

I thought about a name that would reflect on me and the first thing I thought about was how excited I can become when I talk about beads and my poor friends would be swimming in jargons like eyepins and headpins.

Hence, the name Chatterbeads is bestowed upon this little site of mine. :) Welcome.


Chatterbeads appeared in Tunku Abdul Rahman College today for five hours! My gratitude goes to the members of the Christian Fellowship for your support, help and the space given to me. Just wished it wasn't raining and that the canopy didn't leak. =p Enjoyed your company and those crazy announcements made over the PA system. I'm glad I got to catch up with old friends and also make a few more new friends! :)

My utmost gratitude goes to JL who fetched me to college, waited for me at Lowyat and then braced through the horrendous traffic jam in sleepy mode to college again to fetch me home. So.. thankew. :)

My first offline sales at TAR College was not how I expected it to be. Maybe I set unreasonably high expectations. And then the rain poured, the rainwater soaked through the canopy and wetted most of the things there, including the other items that the CFers were selling. But luckily the rain stopped and I was able to continue making customized bracelets and earrings. I was also able to talk to one of the CFers who was interested to start his own handmade jewellery business.

Here are some of the pictures Amanda took.

My small little section on the table

Me and my wares.

Thanks, Amanda, for this opportunity. :)


You might probably know this by now.. but I'm gonna make an official announcement:

Chatterbeads has a shorter URL now!

All thanks to JL for the sweet surprise! :)

To-Do List

I'm still alive! Wheee!! Just finished 40 bracelets I was commissioned to make. Phew! Thanks, Cindy and Yvonne, for giving me the opportunity. :)

Charlotte, your birdy ear studs are ready! And I'll get to work soon with the chrysanthemum earrings for your friend before tomorrow. :p

I need to get started on new designs.. Cineleisure flea market MAY be my next challenge in mid December. No promises yet, don't wanna disappoint you. ;) Will file you in once the application's approved! Excited excited excited..

I realized I have a LOT of overdued projects.. let's see. There's Guats' wedding necklace which I am very honoured to make, and Aunt Kim Lan's pearls waiting to be strung with crystals into necklace and earrings, and Aunt Katherine's precious stones waiting to be wire-wrapped. Also, Kay Yi's bracelet and earrings waiting to be repaired and I gotta count the price of June's custom-made bracelet. Did I miss out anything else? Oh yeah, gotta shop for amber-coloured stone to match Carol's pendant/earrings. And Krystle's dainty musical earrings and Christin's blue sunstone bracelet by Sunday.

I promise I'll update soon! Holidays coming soon.. CAN'T WAIT!

The kindergarten I work in discourages kids from playing with guns in school, whether toy or imaginary. We always tell kids "No guns in school" who are shooting their peers with an imaginary gun. So on Monday, I wore this pair of earrings to school and my fellow colleague saw the pistol. She straight away chirped, "No guns in school!" I quickly took it out before the kids saw it. Haha! :p

E81 Arrested
Pistol charm and handcuff charm.
Length: 4cm
RM13 (sold out)

You know the drill! E-mail me at or SMS me at 016-2061984 to order! Remakes ARE possible with NO extra charges, unless stated otherwise. ;)
