Maria's Profile

About

Hi, my name is Maria. I am a city girl born and bred in Hong Kong; many years ago, our family decided to relocate to Singapore and we have been living here since. With a business degree and a MBA, I joined the world of business upon graduation, climbed the corporate ladder and have been in the rat race for what I would consider as too long. I lived in the U.S., France and Japan briefly during my years in the corporate world. I have most recently decided to slow down and discovered "online buying and selling" through friends and my Gen-Y nieces and nephews.

At first, I was just making jewelry to de-stress since I have travelled a fair bit and collected some unique materials/stones/beads that I could use my imagination on. Before long, I fell in love with the Etsy community and since then, there's no looking back... :-)

I love all things…

I love all things beautiful and use a wide range of materials in my jewelry collection. What I can think of, I use for my creations, it's that simple. You will also find some vintage elements in most of my design cause I like making "vintage" MODERN again :-)

Talking about "vintage", you will notice that I now offer quite a wide variety of personal vintage items in my shop. Initially, I didn't know I was going to do that. One day, while browsing other vintage sellers' shops, I realized that I too would have items older than 20 years to offer. So...here I am offering my beautiful vintage bags/scarfs/shoes for your consideration.

My motto in selling is that I won't offer anything to buyers that I myself won't wear/use. In fact, I find it hard to part with my creations/collection sometimes. They have all been made or taken care of with a lot of love...

I have been quite a shopaholic when young (the downside of living in big cities, simply too much temptation) and with years, I have mellowed (or so I thought) :-) I am now at peace parting with some of these beautiful things. Or else, there will no longer be enough space at home for me and my family!

I am thrilled to have received such great response for my personal collection so far, thank you so much for your kind support. One word of caution though - you'd better make your purchase before I run out of vintage items to list, ha ha ha!

Thanks for reading about me, enjoy your shopping on Etsy.com!

Best regards,

Maria
