Handmade Jewelry, Handmade Books, Mixed Media & Assemblage Art ... they have become my avenue for expression . And Altered Alchemy ... has become my sanctuary.

HI there :)
Welcome to my little place of escape.
I enjoy creating unique wearable art where I combine the normal with the curious. Found items, rusted objects, hardware, ephemera, leather, stones, copper and brass are some of my favourite materials.

I would like to think that my journals not only fulfill their purpose as pages for penning your thoughts, but are in themselves original works of art and creative expressions of its maker. Each of my journals take many hours to complete. Each one is a piece of mixed media/assemblage artwork thoughtfully put together.

About

I am no Artist ... Just A Dreamer ...

I have dreamed most of my life ...
I dream of places and characters from a different time, a different world. As such, my work revolves around my many alternate worlds and my imaginary characters. I am also inspired by other dreamers and their worlds. I make pilgrimages to Middle Earth and pay homage to the Lady of Lothlorien, I fight alongside the Kings and Queens of Narnia, with skills I acquire from Hogwarts. But I am not only light, I am dark too ... for I delight in dancing with Shadowhunters and Immortals. And when I am ready ... I return, bringing with me the beauty, the stories and my adventures to my mundane world.

My process is organic, it is evolving all the time. Most of the time, I already have a story or a world playing inside my head, and that story would dictate the piece as it takes shape. Sometimes it is the other way round, I start off with something physical in my hand, perhaps a key … and then as I couple the key with other elements, a story would emerge in my mind. And then the story takes over from there and the piece evolves along with it.

Two main themes run in most of my work. First and foremost, Fantasy. And then, there is the element of Age. Somehow, I am drawn to the beauty of age and decay. For me, items that have been ravaged by time, are portals to a different world. A world that once was, a world perhaps before even I existed. I find aged items mysterious, layered and, queer as it may sound, romantic. They whisper stories in my ears, stories from beyond this world … stories that I yearn to be part of.

Perhaps one day, from my work, others will see what I see ... they will live, what I live ...

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I only accept paypal because i find this method the safest when shopping online.
Shipping
Upon receiving notification of payment from paypal, your item will be shipped to you within 3 working days. I use Registered First Class Airmail, and as I ship from my home country Malaysia, it will take approximately 15 working days to reach USA, South America, Canada and 12 days to reach Europe, Australia, NZ.
Refunds and Exchanges
My main aim is to make your shopping experience with Altered Alchemy a happy one for both you and I. Should you have any problems with the items you receive, please feel free to talk to me. I do make refunds or value exchanges should you be unsatisfied with your item. However, you would need to return the item to me, in its original form, within 2 months from the date of purchase. I would advise a postal service that is trackable as I cannot give you a refund should the item be lost in transition. Also, please message me with the tracking number after you ship the item, so I would know when to expect it.

Should you have any queries at all, please contact me via the etsy convo or at my email happypimping [!at] gmail.com. I am sure we can come to satisfactory resolution for both parties.
