The Reveal Day – 8th BSBP

Today is the reveal day….it’s been 3 months …and I’m almost not realizing it….whewwww…. Lori is incredible….with all her suffering she still managed to run this very big event participating by 500 people from around the world, with 135 are international participants from 30 countries/territories. Thank you Lori…..

In this year BSBP I was partnering with Ien Temaluru . I am very sorry that she is really sick at this moment so that she cannot join this reveal day. But, lucky me, she managed to send her bead soup…..which were incredible….

The bead soup was wrapped in a beautiful box

She loves wire jewelry and metal smithing and she knows that I love cats…. so these were the beads that she sent me
from Ien
Incredible isn’t it? The cats are so beautiful…she can capture all the cats details….

To tell you the truth, I was and still am confused what should I make….I am not really good in using figurine as objects in my designs. And then I saw the beautiful wire jewelry by Louise Goodchild and I realized that you can tell a story with your jewelries.

So these are my cat stories,
1st necklace - 3
1st necklace -2
2nd necklace -1
2nd necklace - 2

The 1st necklace is about a cat and the butterfly…To make it 3 dimensional I put the tree behind the cat…
The 2nd necklace actually is not really tell a story….

And for the clasp, I used it for the bracelet…. I took from my stash all green beads….ooohhh how I love green….
the bracelet
bracelet - 3

I still have 2 more cats and some metal beads that i plan to use for my hijabi’s pin.

I hope Ien likes what I did to her bead soup…..

When I worked with the jewelry, this was what happened every time I left my table.

Just a flashback these are the beads that I sent to Ien
from me

Monthly Challenge – March

March is a very busy month….another excuse for me not to finish my challenge (with Lili Krist) this month. For this month challenge the idea is this picture



very beautiful picture isn’t it and the color…..wowww……

I learnt a new technique this month. After making 3 cabochon embroideries (which can be browsed in my other website ), I think I like to try bead embroidery because it can capture all the beautiful colors in the picture. I haven’t finished yet, but since March is over so to be fair I have to reveal what I’ve done…. and this is it, i mean half of it:


I think this can be make as a necklace or something to be put over a pouch. I’ll put the picture again after I finish the other half.

For other participants, please go to Lili’s website.




January’s Challenge

January's Challenge

The challenge is created by Lili Krist. And for January, the idea is a picture of the dawn in the beach. I made the pendant from polymer clay using the translucent and basic color. The bezel was made of the silver wire and I used the viking knit technique for the necklace.

The idea:

February’s Challenge

This is the idea for this month’s challenge

And the reveals are:

Lili Krist

Anna Cravidao

Asri Wahyuningsih

Unique Shabrina Clayjewelry

and Me…..

I made this pendant after I struggle with 3 designs with wires…..the first one I want to make a wire braid with red and yellow color and using artistic wire of peach and lemon. However it became messy….and I gave up. 

My 2nd design I wanted to make a crochet wire pendant with a combination color of red and yellow and combined with silver beads. After making 2 rows of crochet I was getting bored and was lost focus. So I stopped.

My 3rd design is embroidery cabochon and I didn’t even had a change to start making it because again I changed my mind when I passed my jewelry cupboard and saw my druzy and that is the result.

I love the druzy color very much and I feel that this color is a reflection of the cupcake…. I still feel unsatisfied with the bezel. It should be more neat… I might remake it to make it perfect.

8th Bead Soup Blog Party

Wowww I’m in the 8th Bead Soup Blog Party…. Thank you Lori for counting me in in this bead international event. Check this link for more about Bead Soup Blog Party run by Lori Anderson

And this is the link to all the 8th BSBP participants

Last year, during the 7th BSBP I was paired to Elizabeth Jones from Australia. And now I am paired to Chaterine Temaluru or known as Ien Temaluru. Check her website to get a glimpse of what she’s doing,

Since she is also from Indonesia, I know her and has met her once when we learned to make beads from polymer clay. She is a very talented artist, she like to make delicate jewelry…. her works are very precise and beautiful. She also like to use silver wire, gems and crystals. I think she also like fairy tales especially when it involves the fairies…. you can see from her works…

And now I have to think hard what soup mixes should I send her….. really confusing since I like to give something that is unusual for her…. 🙂

New Blog

Two days ago I opened my “has not been opened for 6 months” blog – and I was very surprised. An unwanted pop-up message appeared and told me to click on the ad or other wise I’ll be sorry. When I click cancel to go back to my blog it disappeared together with my blog.

I tried to open it again from my tablet. It worked for the first time and then the pop up message come again and it happened all over again…my blog disappear together woth the pop up message.

So, now I open with WordPress, still try the free one…and try to build it from scratches. It is sad, because I used the blog for so long…and I have 2 other blogs connected to that blog. A very good lesson for me for not abandoning something that I made with difficulties.
