Attempts at photography – conducting more experiments with light. Click for more.
I’ve been working on a baby blanket for my new niece. It will be a nice sized blanket that I hope she’ll be able to use for some time as she grows up. I’m hoping it will be something she will cherish as she grows older and maybe even one day give to her daughter.

It occurs to me that I cannot keep posting large posts of the pieces in my collection. So I’ve decided to create gallery pages which I can regularly update. If you like the stuff I made and want to see more, keep checking my Collection pages & enjoy.
Found some pictures of stuff I’ve made. These weren’t sold. Some of them were made for my mum, the rest were gifts or kept in my own collection. These were attempts at new designs and feature different materials and techniques, like stitching.
I’ve been wanting to put up pics of some jewellery I managed to sell last year. These all feature the paper beads I’ve been making for a while combined with other materials such as wire, wooden beads, seed and plastic beads, plastic crystal beads, and nylon thread. One is even made using guitar string.
I sold all of these for the prices marked so made a little bit of extra money that week. I even got a few extra orders for certain designs so I sold a few more of those. The best thing about this exercise was trying new designs and finding new ways to use the materials I had on hand.
A lot has happened since my last post… way back before Christmas last year. In short, I’ve finished up my year’s internship in Samoa and have returned home for an extended break because there was a very real need to spend quality time with my family while making sure the rest of the plan is falling into place.
There is much to say about my time in Samoa, so I’ll keep that for a separate post.
