Sometimes, a dream and a vision pays off.....

A lot of times I will have a vision in my head, a feeling, a theme that I want to achieve before I start a piece. Though such may not be apparent to most, but that's how I make my pieces....

A few years ago, I made this piece.... named Leaves & Berry

It was not one of the hardest piece to make yet it was certain time consuming a few years ago for my technical ability I guess..... I always thought that I'll end up keeping this due to the material + labor cost..... Lo and Behold, this piece sold a few days ago at a local gallery here at Hong Kong!! Making this the highest priced item that I've ever sold to date! YAY!!!!

This piece was made with GEM carved Tourmaline leaves in assorted shape/size. I fell in love with their liveliness, a whole 15" strand of 6mm faceted Tourmaline rondelles on headpins, mix with random size of Thai Karen Tribal silver leaves and flowers and critters. This piece is one of my all time favorite to date! Even though it's a piece that I've made a few years ago.....

Just a little something that I would like to share.... my joy and pride!! And do follow your vision, though they may not sell right off instantly, but your vision will be appreciated by someone someday..... it's quite a great feeling isn't it??? :)

'Til next time!!!

What a lovely necklace Deb! Sometimes it takes the right person a long time to find the piece that was made for them.
