Agape- necklace

It's been really long time since my last jewelry post.
Life has been really hectic and I haven't had time to update my blog :(
Also my resupply package was delayed a month, further delaying me from updating my blog.
Last few days I've been making some custom orders and also jewelry gifts for my relatives & friends.
In few days I will post some Cameo-necklaces up for sale.

A custom made piece ( Agape- necklace)

I'm back!

I am back from my long vacation!

I ordered more  supplies again and I'm still waiting for my packages to arrive. I will be tied with lots of custom orders, because Christmas is coming! Yay! Furthermore, I will also do few pieces to put here on my blog.

Because I will need more space to keep my new jewelries, I reduced prices from the necklaces/earrings that I still have.
Please , check out my Winter collection and French themed pieces. Thank you!

The Desk

This is my desk! :D Usually it's more messy, but I cleaned it before taking the picture :D , Anyhow, many of you may have been wondering how my desk look like and where do I blog. Well, my own notebook collapsed a moth ago, the Macbook is my sisters, so I'm using hers until I get my own. I've been using these small pink pliers for about a half year ( ever since I started beading! ), I got these yellow ones just two weeks ago.... I still love the pink ones, they're really tiny & awesome for travelling, since I love fixing my friends necklaces, hahah!
Few days ago I got a new bead case from Mika, which she bought for me from Japan, I love it!
I also have a ''packing table'', where I pack and send out my lovelies. I think I have as much packing stuffs as a wholesaler has, hahah!
