Introducing someone who has shown interest in this thing called Wire Jewelry.
He did play around with wire and made me these 2 pairs of 'S' shaped earrings when he's 4 years old.
He is now 17 years old. Time really flies while they are growing.
He is slowly taking interest in creating wire jewelry again.
Very slowly as he will be sitting for his exam soon.
Here are some of his earlier wire wrapped pieces with stainless steel, copper and brass wires. They were his 2018 year end long school holiday projects. Most of them are practice pieces. Haha, yeah, it took me that long to post them today.
Those are for another day posting.

The whole world is in some kind of controlled movement or lockdown due to this nasty Covid-19 virus. I hope you, your family, and friends are doing well and you are keeping yourself healthy and safe.
Starting this week, this controlled movement is now known as Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) or MCO5. Basically, some economic sectors/businesses and activities are allowed to take place with conditions. Four persons are now allowed to be in a car provided you are from the same household. There are many many more conditions but I am not going into that.
TBH, I would prefer MCO4 to continue until the 12th of May.
I have been wanting to update here, thinking that during this time I'd be able to post more often.
But behold, Working From Home (WFH) is really WFH.
....just realized that WFH is like working 24/7.
What have you been up to during this time?
Cooking?......baking?......cleaning?.......making wire jewelry?.......start a new hobby or hobbies?.......DIY DIY DIY?.........watch movies/dramas?........surfing the www?........exercising?........reading?........spring cleaning......go over your todo list?....oh there are many things to do if you are not WFH.
As for me, WFH takes up most of my time although I tried to stick to fixed working hours.
Ahh...that doesn't mean I didn't do other things though.
The food photos that people have been sharing online and all over the social media during this time are just too tempting.
So, one thing I discovered during this MCO is that I can BAKE cake.
I don't remember the last time I tried my hand on cake baking...
Must have been like 30 over years ago.
That was a failed orange cake. Or was it a butter cake?
Well, we don't have youtube, smartphones and google at that time.
So, I gave up cake baking after that one failed project.
On top of that, I am not a baking or cooking person.
Thanks to Emily of Emily Secret Passions, I tried out the Basque Burnt Cheesecake.
The reason I gave it a go is mainly because it only involves 5 ingredients and a hand mixer....haha I don't have electrical mixer since I have resigned to the fact that I can't bake. So, I don't have many baking tools and utensils at home....don't laugh...
So here is the result....my first ever burnt cheesecake.
For those of you who think that you don't know how to bake, give this cheesecake a try.
If I can do it, so can you.
Here is the youtube recipe that Emily shared with me:
Have a great day and stay safe, stay healthy.
What have I been up to, to be continued...

Here is a closer look at the flora and heart-themed bookmarks.
Look at the whole thing here - http://www.wireblissmei.com/2019/12/beaded-wire-wrapped-bookmarks.html
Instead of flat, these bookmarks' end stick out on top of the book.
I use 15ga stainless steel wire for all of them.

I hope this new decade would be a great, happy, healthy, prosperous and successful one for all of you.
To start off the new year will be the continuation of yesterday's post for bookmarks.
We have a closer look at the "flat" bookmarks.
As you can see, the beads sit flat on the surface when in use.
