My hobbies and interest

 
Storytelling fulfills my passion and love for words and languages, but it does not satisfy the kinesthetic creature in me. So aside from writing, I dabble in quite a number of things that require me to use my hands, when I can touch and sense.
One of it is through jewellery making. I am very happy to have come in contact with the Founder of Angie Jewels & Co. a few years ago and I’ve been getting my training under Angie herself since.
I started dabbling with jewellery making with the aim of training my patience. And I thought, there’s no better way to start that by doing something small and potentially frustrating repetitively. So I started searching for jewellery making over the internet. That’s how I found out about Angie.
In I went with faith, and little did I know that I would soon develop a passion for it. What I thought would be frustrating has, in fact, turned out to be extremely enjoyable. From a tray of single small beads that are dauntingly colourful, I slowly string and weave them together to form a piece of jewellery that I am proud to call my own work. The process is equivalent to crafting a beautiful layer cake that wows everyone. It is a kind of satisfaction that only the baker or an artist will understand and appreciate.
Here’s a photo of my very first set of jewellery, completely handmade by yours truly
Pearl Bracelet and Earrings
Stay tuned for more as I reveal in later posts on the projects that I’ve completed over the duration of the jewellery making course.
