My fingers are a little small and I had to get my rings custom made. I ordered the mushroom, snowy mountain, and rabbit rings. The cute painted details are lovely. Jacqueline was really fast with her response and she was super nice in helping me with my special requests. The rings arrived in a cute little package too! Loved everything :)

About

Creating Happy Daily Objects

Hi, I am Jacqueline, originally from Malaysia and now based in a beautiful country town called Orange in Australia. Creativity has always played a major role in my life; as a kid, I drew and crafted a lot – I remember making cards with my mother to sell at the school fair, and also representing my school in many art competitions. Somehow, I ended up studying engineering at university and eventually became an engineer.

The urge to lead a creative life started bugging me incessantly and I went back to university and obtained a degree in design. It has certainly enabled me to look at the world with new eyes. During my design studies, my friends and I started making things to sell, and that has fueled my dreams to start my own business. After graduation, circumstances made me move from Sydney to the countryside, and I took that opportunity to start making my dream come true.

I started Whimsy Milieu in 2012 - I started off with jewellery, and have since gone on to create other accessories, home ware, and illustrations. I find that I cannot focus just on one thing – my heart is pulled into many different directions and I love working with different materials.

What I love most about making is the process - although I always feel intimidated before the start of a process, when I actually start the process, it is just exhilarating and also enlightening when I make mistakes and overcome them. I endeavour to insert whimsicality into all my products, of which some are more obvious and others subtler; in short, I strive to make products that will make people happy.

I love it that this job of spreading happiness doesn’t feel like work at all – as I wake up every day to do what I love and fall asleep at night thinking about more ideas for my business. I have also learnt a lot through this journey – not only in terms of creativity and business, but also about life and relationships. It is such a blessing that doing something I love also enables me to live a more meaningful life and to spend more time with my loved ones, wherever they may be in the world.

I hope that my creations will bring you as much happiness as they brought me!~
