Dec. 12, 2017 - Finally, I had finished my Advance level beading course to obtain my Swarovski Authourized Instructor's Certificate at KME ACADEMY . My patience and perseverance had finally paid off. Now I am almost certified to teach my passion early next year 2018 . So proud of myself for what I had accomplished in the last 4 months! 😍😘😗

I had done completely all the 4  advance level / Intermediate / Basic beading projects required just in time for the holidays. So no more worries of upcoming projects till after 2nd week of January. I can now arrange to go on holidays ...  yeeehaaaaaa !!!

Clip On Earrings

I started creating this design in the 1st week of June 2017. The necklace, bracelet and earrings took me at least 11 days to finish and was just submitted and sent to the US for the grand final judging at the right time before I went to Philippines for my father's funeral in the end of July 2017. My design stayed at Fire Mountain Gems in the US for several months so they can complete the pictorials and whatever they require to put it in the Gallery Of Designs.
