an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,

a talent showcase

i love christmas. very much indeed. it's the season for giving, loving and forgivin'. though i feel we should be doing these anyway no matter when or where, but i guess the peace and joy exuded by the spirit of Christmas - somehow made it easier to do so.

i have a very talented girlfriend who makes beautiful jewellery for the modern and stylish ladies. she impresses me a great deal because each of these 'precious' are crafted and exquisitely put together with a lot of thought, creativity, passion and time. i for one, have toes for my fingers. i would probably destroy anything delicate or dainty that comes my way.
yup. i am a ruffian - and i can't do anything about it.

but this girl (her name's Dorothy by the way), she's a gem herself. i would like to use this blog of mine to showcase her amazing work and if any of you out there are looking for special Christmas and birthday gifts for ladies, sisters, mums, colleagues, lovers, girlfriends, wives or your potential 'targets" - this collection would make a very unique and thoughtful gift as it is handmade - with lots of love. :)

Should there even be a season for forgiving in the first place? It sounds just wrong just so you know..it has already become very much commercialized.

And it seems that everyone is making jewelry too.

CrimsonWolf said...

nice..does she do gothic themes too?

Dorothy said...

Hi Hi
yes, jewelry making is gaining popularity but each designer has his/her own unique style and unlike commericalised jewelry, there are limited pieces of each design. :)

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

aiya dot is so blur. answer one post didn't answer the other guy's question.

wolfie: you can always email dorothy and ask her about her theme. I am sure she can make some gothic ones for you. and maybe make it the ONLY one in the world so it's unqiue. :)
