About

From the heart to the hands — Encouraging gifts, stationery and personalised artisan goods

Found by grace | The little maker; Inspired by the Maker of Heaven. †

Hello! Thank you for dropping by. I am Jess, and I make art and handcrafted goods such as personalised wire name jewelry, leather keychains, and stationery that features my art and calligraphy.

I remembered looking forward to waking up on Christmas and on my birthday when I was a kid, as my mom would surprise me by secretly placing her nicely wrapped gifts by my bed or behind my pillow before the day starts. Once or twice it awoken me while she was at it, but we giggled nevertheless as it made my heart smile; it was a feeling that I will forever cherish, knowing the heart of the giver.

As I grew up, I also wanted others to experience this simple joy. And for me, it was through gifts. That was when I started to put my heart and thought into using whatever resources I had to make something personalised that would be something meaningful to the receiver, no matter how simple the gift may be.

So be it an encouraging quote, an art, or a handcrafted piece, may it be something meaningful to you and/or your recipient in a personal way.

During 2009 when I was 15 years old, I came up with a blogshop — Heart Eco. I made crafts out of unwanted materials or recycles from my household, turning ‘rubbish’ into something valuable — an art or craft. When I sold some of my creations, I used the funds to explore and invest in different craft materials.

Among the materials I bought were a roll of wire where I would make wire names. Eventually in the year 2012, I journeyed on to focus on making personalised wire names at Dazzlyn Wire where I served a wide international audience through an online platform called Etsy.

Soon, I took a diploma in graphic design and at the end of my course in 2014, I created a personal branding — The Maker Jess. I would publish my adventures in art and creations on Instagram until today. Through this, I took on a variety of interesting projects and also discovered my natural flair in calligraphy which I self-taught when I found out that it wasn’t part of the typography subject in my diploma course. What happened to be a personal pursuit intertwined with the blooming of global interests in calligraphy which led me to be found and listed as Malaysia’s Top 10 Modern Calligraphers by Tallypress in the year 2015.

It proved to be a useful skill as I would naturally use my own handwriting to write messages and encouragements. Together with the combination of skills and interests that I have in the creative field, I am determined to use them to create simple things that can carry meaning in a personal way. It is my joy that these creations would serve as affirmations and reminders of truth and love to us, as I believe that little things carried with great love has the power to influence and bless those around us.

Be blessed and bless on!
Love, Jess
