I am now, crazily buying bead stringing related thingy from ebay and lelong web sites.
From last week until today, calculated about RM120 is spent on buying beads and stringing materials. I am enhancing my skills in bead stringing and jewellery making. I had made a number of bracelets, necklaces and anklets made from materials ranging from semi precious stones, swarovski(expensive little bugger), plastic beads and glass beads.
For now, my stuffs are made just for me and my family. However, I am hoping to sell my stuffs sometime next year.
If any one knows of any place that supply beads, kindly drop me the shop's name and location.
Tomorrow, I am planning to go prowling for a shop named Yi Xin, located somewhere at Petaling Street. Anyone knows the exact place?
Since I am new at this, for anyone that have their stones, beads, whatever and plans on stringing them but do not have the knowledge, you can contact me. Give me the designs that you have in your head and I would string them for you. I would only cost you the string, clasp or whatever additional items (after discussion of course) + minimal fee for the service(negotiable). This is provided that you can meet me up at KL Sentral lah. Anywhere else would be charged extra (my travelling expenses). Please inform me first if you want to see examples of my stuffs.
I am reading the Doona series by Anne McCaffrey. Still to buy new spectacles. Ayark, tadak duit lah. Asik beli beads jer. ;P

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
