I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.View all patterns by designer (77) »
Pendulum - from the Neo-Latin word, pendulus meaning hanging. A pendulum is a weight (or bob) suspended from a fixed point so that it can swing freely by the action of gravity and acquired momentum. From its discovery around 1602 by Galileo Galilei the regular motion of pendulums was used for timekeeping, and was the world's most accurate timekeeping technology until the 1930s. The Pendulum mimics an actual pendulum. A series of three graduating sized crystal pearls are caged inside simple and elegant columns of tiny beads form the weight or bob. The caged bob swings freely from a simple herringbone rope. The bail of the pendulum bob is a simple square knot that shows off the beauty of the herringbone ropes. Held at the clasp, Pendulum will swing to and fro, with a little assistance from you and gravity. The Pendulum - an elegant and sophisticated necklace for the woman who loves beauty in simplicity.
