Sky is the Limit
I have been resting well these few months and I will be traveling on and off again starting this September until the end of the year. Before my mind goes cuckoo while wondering somewhere in Neverland, maybe now is the best time to re-organize and re-check my stock of jewelry findings and beads. At least I would have a clear idea on how and what to get on my next purchase.
Been having too much fun shopping for beads during these few months. Most of the time, my beads selections comes from my subconscious ‘heart’ instead of from my conscious ‘brain’ . While doing my bead’s “spring cleaning” process, I noted that my beads collections are mainly dominated by BLUE colored beads and … this is not a good sign. Some of the BLUEs need to go. So, as part of my “spring cleaning” effort I am declaring that the color theme for my September 2014 collection will be in the shade of BLUE.
My True Blue jewelry set is now on sale at GayaIzzah.com Facebook page and GayaIzzah.com IG account. It is made of dyed blue agate (natural stone), rhodium plated steel beads, rhodium plated steel pendants, rhodium plated steel toggle/ findings and stringed with wires.

Earth tone necklace
I was in the middle of editing and organizing my 1000++ Ethiopian images when out of boredom I decided to create a necklace and a matching bracelet that will remind me of Ethiopia. Out of my remaining beads, I found some earth tone dyed agate, combined it with some colorful china seed beads and matched it with a rhodium plated steel pendant for my necklace. You can wear the necklace in 2 styles, remove the attached hook then you can wear it long (about 43cm diameter) or just wear it short like the picture shown above.
And, the same combo beads also goes to my Ethiopian inspired bracelet with some little brown agate gemstones tied together to the rhodium-plated steel toggle. Please check out Gayaizzah.com page and IG for details.

Revisiting my Old Passion
After 10 years (yes! I know … I am old but I have a very young heart), I decided early this year to revisit again my old beloved passion on beading. Did some intense traveling around the globe these past few years just to figure out what I am made off and I figured that life is short, why wasting time wondering either I can or can’t do the things that I wish that I want to do. This is my first post in this blog. Trying to link my passion for photography, traveling and jewelry making into one ultimate masterpiece. For a few months, I did some intense read up on jewelry making particularly on beading and attended a silversmithing course in Jogjakarta, Indonesia reason being to brush up my jewelry making skill and at the same time trying to boost up my confident level before I decide to totally jump into doing this for a living.
I had completed some bracelets and necklaces for GayaIzzah.com first jewelry collection targeting for young women last month and alhamdullilah the respond was quite encouraging.
I am currently working on the next set of jewelry collection from the remaining beads that I have in stock coupled with various color of freshwater pearls from Sabah. The next collection is targeted for completion in September 2014. Fyi September is a very special month both for me and for GayaIzzah.com team. So my dearest readers, wish me good luck yeah for my next upcoming creation.
