At each flea market I have attended, I enjoy not just the main experience of engaging with people, but also observing what catches the attention of most of the visitors at my stall 🙂 This helps me hone my creations to ensure they stay wearable. Colours, themes and styles are always on my mind when I am creating my pieces, and this observation process is very important, precious even, to me.
I have often noticed there was a lot of attention paid to my beachy, seaside themed items. Perhaps it is simply because we Singaporeans are all so highly strung we dream of holidays whether we are conscious of it or not 😛 😛
This inspired my resort style latest creation that features a natural Agate sliced druzy pendant, a freshwater pearl and a chunky strand of silver plated glass suncatchers.
I hadn’t even had the chance to name it – I only finished it a day or two before the flea on Saturday 😛 I usually take some time to photograph and ponder over the names for each one of a kind piece, but I didn’t have time 😛 On a whim, I took it with me to the flea, if only just to see if it would garner any positive attention.
To my amazement, it was my second sale of the day! A nice middle-aged lady was walking by my stall when she turned suddenly and grabbed it. She then started asking a whole host of questions and I knew she was smitten right away 🙂
I was so elated that it had found favour so quickly, but I didn’t get the chance to observe if it would take the fancy of other people 😛 (Thankfully I had already photographed it!! Hahahaha..)
P.S. These pendants are one of a kind in shape and size, but all are large and too chunky for earrings. Each piece has different variations of the same colour – cyan. They are available for bespoke necklaces, with a turnaround time of 1 week to 10 days from payment date, as a lot of wiring work goes into each piece. I just thought I’d share this piece here, and also as a brief update for the little shop. For those who prefer not to place a custom order, there will be a few such necklaces on the online shops soon – I do need to make more and it will take me some time because each glass bead needs to be painstakingly handwired 🙂 Thank you for your patience!
