I'm sharing photos of a crocheted beaded rope necklace which I made for myself and love it very much. I have not worn it yet though. This necklace measures 45 cm with extra 6 cm extention as I like it to be short. It can also be converted as a two strand bracelet.
Thanks for looking!

Hah! Finally, I got a bit of help from my son to upload these photos of jewelries which were completed quite some time ago.
Multi-colour Swarovski Crystal Bracelet with Decorative S-Clasp. The design of this clasp was from Sarah Thompson's book
"Fine Art Wire Weaving"
Another bracelet, done with Swarovski pearls and
the decorative clasp.
A matching set of Swarovski pearl and rhinestone necklace, bracelet & earrings

Gosh! Its been more than 5 months since I last update my blog.
I would like to sincerely apologize for not updating any new post. I have not been able to upload any jewelry photos from my hand phone to the computer due to a problem that I have not rectified so far. Need to solve this problem soon.
I have been a doing a little bit of this and that, in between other things that has been happening in my daily life. I am beginning to pick things up again, hopefully, soon.
The Chinese New Year is fast approaching and self here has been busy in preparation for the coming festival. So, wire jewelry and crafting has to take a back seat for the time being.
Thank you, too, to Craftsy & Etsy members and others who purchased my wire jewelry tutorials from Craftsy and my Etsy shop "EmilySecretPassions". I plan to make a new wire jewelry tutorial, too, and hope to make it materialize =)
So, here's wishing everyone out there a wonderful weekend and have a splendid and awesome week ahead.

Gosh! It's been about 4 long months since I last updated my blog. Been busy doing this and that in between those months. I've also been away far too long from wire jewelry crafting and have been doing a little bit of crocheting and trying to learn new stitches. I've only known how to do the basic crochet stitches like the single crochet, double crochet and was not really aware of other stitches/patterns like the broomstick, ribbed, hairpin lace, chevron, star, etc. etc....
Anyway, here are two photos of the filigree coiled earrings which I last crafted just for sharing. It's been listed for sale in my Etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/emilysecretpassions together with my other wire jewelry making tutorials.
100% crafted with silver plated anti tarnish artistic wire and Swarovski bicone crystals.
Alrite, now going back to finishing a scarf I crocheted this week. Hope to update again soon with photos of the scarf.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hello everyone! I know I have not been very productive for the year 2014 and has been lacking behind in updating my blog. I hope to come back to it soon after I have some personal affairs settled and everything back to "really normal" in my life.
The year 2014 in my opinion has not been good to me and as I am typing this post, my mind is wandering to the affairs that I have to solve. I can't help but to say I have sleepless nights and loss of appetite over this.
So, I am taking this opportunity to make this short announcement that I would be taking a very, very long break from updating my blog until I sort out the affairs. I will not be crafting jewelry but for those who are interested in purchasing my wire jewelry tutorials, you may go to my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/emilysecretpassions. If you have any inquiries, you can email me at email@example.com and I will get back to you ASAP, provided my internet connection is not down.
Thank you for reading this and for being patient with me.
I would also like to this this opportunity to wish everyone who comes across this blog
Happy New Year 2015

Hello there. How is everyone getting on? The school holidays in Malaysia are here to stay until January 4th, 2015 and X-mas is just about a month away. I have been absorbed with crochet amigurumi and away from wire jewelry crafting for way too long. This is a new found hobby and am quite addicted to it.
I will be sharing only these photos of a family of owls which I did over a period of time
and two bunnies sitting in the compound of my garden.
The patterns for the owl and white easter bunny was obtained free from www.craftpassion.com and is the brainchild of Ms Lee Mei Li of Malaysia. She has several other free patterns, so pop over to craftpassion.com or to her blog www.amigurumei.com to know more about her and her work.
Another amigurumi doll is in the making and I will share the photo once I've completed it. I hope to go back to wire jewelry crafting as soon as I can "detach" myself from this new hobby.
Thank you for reading and have an enjoyable and productive week ahead.
