Prototype – JiaSha Trio necklace

Custom Order – and this is the prototype piece. So now I have JiaSha series set! :P

Material: Artistic wires, black gunmetal chain and garnets (rounds and teardrops).

I use Artistic Wires for all prototyping my orders, and as soon as I would like to start the project I realized I’ve ran out of one of the most important material – 24ga wires. Freaked out! I have promised my client by weekend I will be able to show the prototyped piece! So I went over to http://beading.my, one of my favorite supplier, to see if they have 24ga, and then it says it’s all sold out. PANICKED! I text Steve from http://beading.my to see if he can source me some anyway, I texted him instead of call – cause it was already very late at night, I think it’s almost 11pm when I texted. He rang me up in less than 1 minute, and I told him what I need and need them urgently – gratefully, he told me he kept some. THANK GOODNESS!

So it will take one day if he were to send them via post to me, I decided to pay a visit physically (for the first time after he’d shifted) the next day. And then this is what I saw:

It was Ms. Mastura running a class! My heart was deeply touched when I see this – they are all paying their full attention creating TOGETHER! Ms. Mas is great, she’s so soft spoken and I can barely hear anything, and no I didn’t say Hi to them, I WAS TOTALLY SHY!!! And didn’t want to interrupt the class!

 

I think you crafters in Malaysia should really pay a visit there – it’s a cozy place that you will want to be there and be with people that shares the same interest. I am very comfortable in there and I didn’t leave immediately after getting what I need, I walk around places and chit-chat with Steve and Icyy, I even found out that Iccy and I had a common friend! All in all, it was a good good experience – I trust everything happened for it’s reason! I almost being thankful for running out of 24ga wires LOL!

 

Happy a good weekend folks!
