Tall Sandwich Necklace

I've been really busy the past month up till now, rushing out Christmas orders and re-stocking my shop - which is why I've really haven't had time to blog or even create new items.

Yesterday, I finally had some time to play with new ideas! I've always been wanting to try my hand making a sandwich necklace, and I had fun "stacking" things up! :)

The tall sandwich jewelry has many layers of lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and ham!


This would be great for everyday wear. Because I had so much time creating this, I'm going to make a couple more.

Available at my Etsy shop here now!

I'm so happy that a few of my miniatures made it to buzzfeed.com

I am having a fabulous November. It is always such a special month for me. The month started a little blue as I was worried about my health, but I have since found out I am OK and have recovered from the nasty flu. 
I'm feeling very humbled and grateful for the support and love received as a result from the feature, it makes me want to work harder! It's also my birthday month and I accomplished a little personal project (not related to miniatures) that I've been wanting to do for months, and I felt truly joyous. All in all, it has been a fabulous month.

To end off November, I'm having a 10% discount in my Etsy shop. Please use the discount code THANKU14 when you check out to enjoy the discount. Discount expires on 1 Dec 2014.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

English Tea Time - Student's Work

How often do I get to see three English tea time trolleys all placed together? In fact this is the first time! But I love how pretty it looks when all 3 are placed together. Therefore I had to take a photograph to capture this precious moment.

My tea cart is in the background (with the green ribbon on the profiteroles tart), and the ones in the front are my students' work. Joan and Nary completed it, and I hope they are happy with their project.

Most people often under-estimate the amount of time it takes to complete a project like this.
It took 9 hours for a beginner to complete this project. Of course, it's impossible to do it all in 1 day, therefore it is broken up into 3 days.


Here's a close up.
