About

A Childhood Memory

One of my favourite chores as a child is to repair my grandparents' prayer beads. I would lovingly prepare two strands of thread, calculate the beads and if not enough, hunt them. Look at every nook and cranny to find the adventurous ones. After every bead is found, I would start stringing them. Oh, how I wish they come in many colours other than green! But, I really do enjoy the 'chore' and hope it breaks often...

My other favourite thing is trips to the goldsmiths. My grandparents sold stuff to other people, and sometimes they want gold jewellery. I would happily follow them, enjoy the free drinks and browse the shiny yellow stuff. I still have those gold necklace and bracelet my mother bought just from the same shop. I love both to bits and would love to pass to my (future) daughters one day as heirloom.

Well, I do love my wedding and engangement rings too! But I feel uncomfortable wearing rings. My wedding ring is a simple diamond solitaire and my engagement ring is a simple floral carved band. I am not much of a ring person...

As you may know already, I love jewellery. I love to create jewellery, but can't wear them so much. So for my Einstein moment, I decide to sell them!

My favourite time to create is at night. I just love the cooler night time since my house do not have air conditioner! Well, maybe someday when I have my own studio I will install one! Normally, when I create something, my cat Garfield would accompany me.

My inspiration came from many sources. Sometimes I just love looking at natural colour combination from flowers and try to translate that. Other times, it would be dumping my supplies and play matchy matchy. When I am in a rut, I would browse books, magazines and the internet to get inspired again. In anyway, I am not afraid to play with colours, but at the same time, I love muted colours too!

I love using Swarovski crystal beads and crystal pearls. Actually, I love the pearls more! And I love using semiprecious gemstones too. I like the coolness of the stones when you hold them. My favourite material to bind them all is using Artistic Wire. This brand's wire have beautiful colours, great quality and affordability.

My hope is that I can create for many more years to come, create many beautiful jewellery and make many ladies happy! Well, maybe I should start creating instead typing now!

  • Natasha Ibrahim

    Owner, Designer, Maker, Photographer

    Okay, this is me. I dislike taking pictures of myself and other taking my picture. Actually this is me during my trip to Singapore National Orchid Garden. See? I am grinning because I love orchids too, other than cats and jewellery.

  • Garfield aka Gufal

    Companionship Provider

    This is my favourite shadow, Garfield. He always follow me every where (inside the house). Right now he is snoring beside me! Usually he will accompany me when I make jewellery, and will nudge me if I spend too much time there instead of cuddling.

  • Girl

    Quality Control Supervisor

    I suspect Girl (lame name, I know - blame my husband!) also loves jewellery. She will busily put her nose on most new supplies, checking. One time she even sleep on my own stash of Swarovski pearl necklaces when I take them out!

  • Boy

    Carton Box Recycler

    Boyboy (again, blame my husband for the generic name!) loves to reuse the boxes that was used to ship the beading supplies. A good box will become a great napping bed, then will become a place to scratch those sharp nails. He also loves to complain!

  • Smokey

    Chatterbox

    Smokey loves to have a great conversation, and will do a lot to make sure I will have a great conversation with her! But she also prefer me to play with her, instead of making jewellery. She will roll around so that I will just stop!

Shipping
I will post within 7 days upon payment, most probably sooner. I believe once we purchase something we want, we want it fast. So I will try to post it within 1-2 days if possible.

For custom made necklaces and custom order, please allow me more time (~ a week) to complete your order as this will be prepared from scratch.

For local customer in Malaysia, shipping will be by Poslaju. There is a Poslaju office nearby my house, so it would be easy for me. If you want normal registered post, it is possible to but please check with me as this will take longer time for me.

For international customers, I will ship via air parcel. This is faster than surface parcel, but more expensive. I can track your parcel until your country's customs only. Shipping may take days or weeks, depending on destination. If you prefer a more secure and trackable service, please inform me.
Refunds and Exchanges
I take great care to ensure each item is made meticulously. However, kindly note that handmade items may have some flaws. I will also try to photograph each item that truly represent the item.

Jewellery item will be stored in ziplock bag inside a pillow box. It will be bubble wrapped then wrapped with brown paper. Care has been taken to minimise damage to item during shipping. In the event of damage to the item, please inform me immediately upon delivery. Note that you can inspect the jewellery inside the ziplock bag and ziplock bag will be sealed.

Should you feel that you do not wish to keep your purchase, I will allow you to return the item within one week upon delivery. Please do not open the zip lock bag and inform me when you receive the item.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Packaging Information*

Jewellery item will be stored in ziplock bag inside a pillow box. It will be bubble wrapped then wrapped with brown paper. You can request for the pilow box to be gift wrapped, however, I do not guarantee if your customs decide to inspect the package thouroughly and tear the wrapping.

If you need a gift box instead of a pillow box, please let me know. I use a pillow box to make the parcel larger to minimise chances of it missing.
