Inner Peace Seeking Moment - Mix Media Charms Pendant

idea recording
combination of silver and brass
Just realise - to materialise our idea is an inner peace seeking journey. When reading from paper the world chaos seems like a never ending story. And the story became a real horror. The weak and small are always the victims of the violent and hatred. As a 3 children mother, I was so terrify to accept this fact. 

When in such emotional condition, I choose to ease myself by writing, singing, dancing, drawing, watching tv bla bla.... But when the negative feeling is still there, I turn to God for HIS guidance!

Design description: 
The round crooked background silver plate is the current world with confuse lines criss-crossing all over created by hammering technique. The texture was emphasized by blackening technique.The original sketch was a round structure, but I was not satisfied with the outcome. Turn to use heavy duty scissors to cut and trim the round onto crooked.shape until it represent my though of the confusing world, then I stop.  The flame shape brass plate holding colours cubic zirconia representing 5 of us: black is the father Chin, white is me, blue and pink is Lizzie's and Dawn's favourite colour. And lastly the green prince of us at the bottom of all stones. We hope to be the light that walk the talks of GOD's teaching. At second though the flame plate is also like hands holding together when you carry something precious. Symbolized GOD's love and teaching hold all us together to face the current and future challenges .

Priceless Gift From A Mama

Mama's Design

Mama priceless gift for birthday and Christmas
Since taking this tough course titled : "How to take care of 3 kids cum work from home without getting mad". I have missed doing something I love since Feb 2012 (to prevent this blog to become weeds garden, I have to do something fast)  - organise my though and try to speak it out!   To answer your question - Yes, my 3rd bb was born in April 2012. Our business was in hibernate condition for 3 months since then. I have no more excuse to continue doing tasks that I love. So let this project break the long silence.

A very old friend of mine, a simple person that always has the fine hand making little crafts and delicious bakery (YUM YUM!). She was very indecisive when making decision on gift for her lovely daughter. Until one day she sent me the sketch of her own design. What else can be more unique then that. a perfect life long keepsake for her sweetie.

The pendent is made of 750/18K gold (a strongest material among gold carat) but the chain is 916/22k gold. Not our original plan of 18K gold. Just realise that Malaysia market supply expensive 18K/750 gold jewelry i.e. about RM 350/gram. Which is much more higher compare to 22K/916 gold i.e. RM 195/gram. No doubt the cost of producing 18k/750 gold is higher especially  in terms of tooling cost, but a mass production chain with such high cost is still too much.
