Russian Doll, a DIY tag

Received a facebook tag calling from Ruby, a college alumna, her friend Ah-Yu who is now fighting to a very bad situation of bone cancer.  She needs more courage from blessings for beating the pain from physically reacted in various process of chemotherapy and mentally from the changes from the lost of her beautiful face.  She is a young lady just married not long.

Ruby wishes me to support her thought to make a little thing and send this young lady to make her remaining hope for every another bright day.  If we could invite more DIYers to join this event, we may keep Ah-Yu happier expecting during her days.

Ah-Yu loves Russian dolls, Ruby would like to make this as our campaign subject.

My first time to design something with this topic/theme.  I did some research and thinking to make something easy to carry along and practical for her daily use.

Then, I decided to make a shoe-pouche; for her to keep smiling when seeing this on going in and out clinics.

 

認識的學姐自己才剛經歷一場大病正在處於休養;卻傳來一個愛的召喚——希望召集一些手作人一起為她所認識的一位美女朋友打氣,以一人一心意,為這位名叫阿魚的,正在抗癌的朋友,送上鼓勵,最重要是給予她每天期待驚喜的興奮。她所受的痛苦,以致原本美麗的,剛新婚不久的美顏完全因病而面目全非。最重要的,這病帶給她身體上的痛苦與煎熬,需要無量的勇氣與堅持去捱過;而能令她可稍為在痛苦分心,有源動力抗病,堅強地接受治療;就是接到大家送給她的小驚喜。

我很少以這俄羅斯娃為創作主題,想了很久,終於決定製作一個輕便又實用的,於是想到鞋袋;讓阿魚在這段進出治療診所醫院時能隨身帶,為她勾個微笑。

The fabric is given from a friend, Louisa.  I know she loves handmade stuffs and calligraphy.

a hair clip also be used as a corsage; back by lace with handmade edge-burnt roses with pearls and ribbon, always great to attach with a jewclay pendant; I made a little L lettering by marble-mode pin with a sparkling lilac stone.

Some small pieces of polyester (we generally simply call them silk) fabrics got from a friend’s sampling room, a garment manufacturer in HK.

She wondered if those small fabric swatches are good enough for my flowery making, she remembers some similar ones I showed in website.

Oh yes, that’s a treasure!  Those are really great as nice colored pattern imprinted polyester pieces are really hard to find and meters are not affordable for just few tiny flowery making.

Fact finding there are very less meters in diversified colors or pattern imprinted on local pieces-goods stores’ racks.

From bracelet to earrings set

Get boredom from a bracelet bought from Taipei, it looks a bit old fashioned.

這是一次台北旅遊時所買的手鏈;嗯,看來這款式老了,它已經有一段時日獃在飾物櫃裡沒見過陽光。

YOU MUST MAKE A CHANGE AND SEE A CHANGE.

Find a pair old-fashioned earrings I wore during nine-to-five.  Must get them a change.

另一雙耳環,在我那些朝九晚五年月中,曾陪我過。要給它們一些改變!

One more combination for more changes, with the entire part.

不止一對,是一套三個組合。

樂活書緣的體驗班 27/9/2014

感謝「樂活書緣」的陳根錦博士和太太林亦子醫生的支持,讓我借用書店中的空間;跟幾位 JEWCLAY 學員分享了一個愉快午後,店長還為我介紹進店來的顧客。

三個女人一個墟,不過這是個快樂的墟;大家無所不談,好像認識了一段日子呢;卻原來只是今日才一起上課。

談得投契,大家都非常滿意自己完成的……於是做完了第一件後遲遲還沒開始做第二件,哈哈哈。

Put JEWCLAY badge on my first work of leather pouche

This is my first leather work, thank you for a happy class offered by Ms Joey Cheng.

Obviously I am still to newbie on leather goods making, there was a little flaw on front panel to cover the magnetic buckle. I decided to let my JEWCLAY to coverup that mistake.  The sewing stitches are not perfect too, but at least JEWCLAY badge could make the pouche more in my style.
