Do you feel that you are in a creative rut and looking for something to fill that void?
Are you drawn to beautiful things but feel that it would be so much better if it had a bit more of this or a little less of that?
I guess that we all do from time to time as we seek that ideal outlet for our creative urges. When I was a young girl growing up in China I created an outlet for my creativity by making daisy chains and bracelets out of materials left around the home. We didn’t have much but with a little creative flair and imagination I started to put together small accessories that I was really proud of.
Nowadays I have turned my passion into a business replacing odd bits of material with pretty beads and crystals spreading the word out to the wider jewelry making community about the pleasure derived from being creative and making something that is totally unique.
When I started Chings Beads & Jewelry I had no idea how things would turn out but I have been amazed at how wonderful you’ve all been. Only yesterday a customer of mine was commenting on the incredible range of Swarovski beads that was available and how it has given her such a creative ‘buzz’!
So I only hope that my customers everywhere will continue to create beautiful pieces of jewelry and feel the passion and love that is, to me, the real spirit of true harmony.
