Chili Snowflake

Fresh and hot off the beading table! :) Hanging from the curved end of a bronze metal bookmark is a wire snowflake, made of bronze-coloured copper wire. Red glass bicones and jet black seed beads are wound at intervals, between the 'petals' of the snowflake.

I had great fun making this. Haven't used my pliers for some time.. didn't feel natural at first. But gradually, my hands began to remember how to twist and bend those wires. :)

Chinese New Year 2010

Gong xi Gong xi!

I'm back with a rawr. Blessed Chinese New Year to all Chinese friends out there! I had a great time celebrating it in KL, seeing some of my friends and catching up with long lost ones.

My CNY celebration involved lunch at Chili's, dimsum (twice!) at SS2, 'writing' with sparklers and lots more. Here are some of the pictures taken during the CNY week.

Enjoying CNY cookies! The one in the picture is given by one of my students. :)

Reliving my childhood - playing with sparklers! Photos by Jon Woo.

I've got ideas for new designs!

One of my students whose favourite planet is Saturn told me this today when he saw what I drew: "Aunty Wai Yee! You should draw more lines because Saturn has more than one ring around it!" Whoops. :p

Swirly heart. One of the easiest to draw. :)

Haven't been playing with it for many years.

My beads have been neglected for some time due to work. However, I have been able to come up with a few creations. Tried a bit of wirework. Pictures coming up soon!

Thank you to patrons who still ordered and purchased from me, despite my blog being inactive for a little more than two months.

Updates coming right up!
