Born and raised in the bustling suburb of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I graduated from my adopted home of Melbourne, Australia, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computing. Starting with basic jewellery craft in 2007, I quickly moved on to wire jewellery two weeks later and was instantly hooked. Thinking of a way to innovate, I realized that the art of Chinese Knot/Knotting would introduce a certain je ne sais quoi to my creations, and thus began my fascination and passion for creation in this style and medium.
Amongst the encouragement that accompanied my first tutorial though, there were some who felt that i should be writing tutorials in my mother tongue, on the narrow minded pretext of there being a glut of tutorials for the English speaking audience.
I believe art should live naturally and be expressed as freely as breathing, which is why I continue to write and design as much as I can, in as many languages as I can. Today I am presenting Handmade Wire Jewelry here in and from Malaysia, majoring in Wired Chinese Knot/Knotted Jewelry series. Wires taught me to be humble, and I give a short prayer of thanks each time they survive my designs.
Original Price: USD$10.
Jewelry Jacket, add fresh, exciting appearance to your existing, plain or boring jewelry.
I am totally excited about this newly finalized creation!
I was cracking my head on what do I do about the knotted flower petals and then I decided to leave it as it is so YOU can decide what to do about it. :)
With an almost 11mo baby I have, as usual, very limited time to work with my wires, so this pretty took me about 5 days to complete, averagely 2 hours a day, so it's a total 10 hours, not too bad for a handmade jewelry project. :)
