I'm not a certified jeweller. Neither do I have any qualifications on jewelry making. Making jewelries is not a job that I do. It is something I love and has become a part of my life. I truly enjoy the hours I put into every single piece of a creation. Though it frustrates me from time to time if I don't get it right, it doesn't deter me from wanting to make it right! I'm generally not a perfectionist in many areas in my life but jewelry making knows no short cut.
If you ask me about the one thing that makes a successful online blog store, it is none other than PASSION. The only key ingredient you need to keep going in any undertaking.
It has been exactly 8 years, since I've started my creative journey in March 2005. Sometimes when I look back at before I started this hobby-cum-work, I am astounded because I never thought that little spark of interest in jewelry making would have me come so far. I am much appreciative for all the opportunities given to me - big or small. To be able to create a piece of jewelry to the liking of my clients is my ultimate goal and satisfaction.
Recently, I had an opportunity to make some very unique pieces which were spurred after discussing with a customer who wanted "chunk and something different" in her custom jewelry. So I decided to push for a totally different style and challenged myself to accomplish the ideas I had in my mind. The end result was well received and it motivated me to explore making more of it, which is also an add-on to the variety of styles in my current handmade collection.
These are felt-based pieces which have glass jewels sewn on. Though it takes almost triple my time to get each piece made, as it requires stitching, the satisfaction that I derive from it is also triples!
