Breast Cancer Awareness

This is a simple 5-strand bracelet made with genuine pink leather cord and 4 antique silver charms, ends with a lobsters clasp and an extension, fits all sizes. This item is EXCLUSIVE for the Breast Cancer Survivors & Warriors Group, Malaysia (BCSW).

If you'd like one for yourself or your loved ones, be part of BCSW and buy one with a minimum pledge of RM20 each. It is a not-for-profit item and a not-for-profit group, however, pledges of any amount in exchange for this pretty bracelet would be a tremendous help to raise minimal funds for printing costs of promotional leaflets/brochures/BCSW name cards to be distributed to hospitals, which are then passed on to existing/newly diagnosed patients.

As we know not all patients are able to find the time, heart and energy to meet up with people immediately after diagnosis. Some people take time to open up and this online support group offers them the space to keep their privacy.

Breast Cancer Survivors & Warriors Group, Malaysia is a Malaysian support group for women (ONLY) who are fighting/have fought breast cancer and for their friends and family members. Content and discussion is localized to a very South East Asian context, and discusses treatment options in Malaysia / Singapore, life during treatment, after treatment and long term maintenance from a Malaysian point of view.

I know it is not October nor is it Pink Ribbon month but being aware of breast cancer only in October or by just wearing a pink ribbon doesn't show any significance, don't you think? C'mon ladies, breast cancer is on the rise. Be aware. Be educated. All year round, everyday, every second. So do you know enough about breast cancer? Ask yourselves and ponder for a minute ...

Divine Diamond

At long last, we have finally moved into the new house, unpacked and opened (almost) all the boxes, settled in, celebrated the Chinese New Year - but there is still lots of tidying up to do. Nonetheless, nothing shall keep me away from my tools and wires any longer. The need to hold, feel and twirl my beads, wires and tools is apparent. Ahaks! So came Divine Diamond today :)

Divine Diamond is designed using a customer's leftover pearls. Upon request, she wanted it shaped a diamond, resembles a large hoop and glamorous. I have matched it with swarovski crystals and seed beads to give this pair of earrings a little sparkling glamour. Can be worn to/for a wedding or to a lavish dinner. Fit for a bride, a princess and a classy lady. Hope she likes it.
