Customization: JW

JW really likes chunky, thick, bold kind of accessories. She was really helpful as she sent me pictures of bracelets she likes and from there, at least I got an inkling of what is she into.

(the picture quality isn't what I would have liked, as they were meant only for her to check the completed pieces and see if any changes were to be made prior to sending. I guess I got too excited for her to receive asap that I forgot to take proper pics of them!)

Here are some of the ones i've made for her:

The citrus lampwork bracelet is really funky, bright coloured beads on double stranded chain. These lampwork beads have little protruding bumps on them too!
(It was wayy too chunky to be laid flat so I had wear it for her to see the completed piece)


The 2nd piece focuces mainly on the chain, a self-weaved one to make it thick. I chose the cute red glass birdhouse to balance out the whole 'fierceness' factor.


JW also asked for a charm bracelet with 12 charms, I proposed the idea of hearts mix with flowers & butterflies (my fav stuff!) and to my delight she said yes immediately!


Here's something simple & sweet on double-stranded chain. All made using cat's eye bead, I like how there's different hues on 1 bead (it's lighter in the center)


*More will be posted up as soon as I can find time to write the post and arrange the pics :)

Hello!

I'm really sorry for the lack of updates this month. As stated in my last post, I was trying out a whole new layout for Crafted By Mei. and finallllyyy, its up! YAY!

Haha... I know its something really simple, couldn't have taken me that long right? Basically it's just getting the template and adding my widgets plus some editing, so you may be wondering what took me so long? Well, it's because this blog owner is so fickle minded! =P This template isn't my first choice actually, just when I was finalising everything on the original layout, I realised it was too complicated and messy. Not the feel I want to achieve for Crafted By Mei. Hence this template instead, keeping things sweet and simple!

As promised, I've also posted 3 new necklaces up here for sale! (finally something comes up when you click the label 'NECKLACES'). The focal piece for this batch will be the pendants made of wood in various designs & colours. I hope you like these as much as I enjoyed making them!

So if anything catches your eye, you can always drop me a mail at craftedbymei@gmail.com !

Thank you for dropping by and I truly hope you enjoy your time browsing through the products.

Thanks! =)

What's coming up....

Hey all, updates are a tad slow this week and maybe the next as well, as I'm currently occupied with a whole new layout for Crafted By Mei.

Have been working on it for 2 weeks now, but with my limited knowledge of HTML, lotsa trial and error are involved just to get the right look ;)

So, in the mean time, do bear with me and fret not, a fresh new look means fresh new products! I'll be posting up some necklaces (finally!) when I'm done with figuring out the codes and make it compatible with this site.

I'll still check my mail so if there's anything, you can always reach me here:
craftedbymei@gmail.com

Thank you & have a nice day!
