Able Fingers


I often wonder how the disabled, especially those with no hands could do things. I'm not here to say inappropriate things, I'm just here self-reflecting on the things that I might sometimes take for granted while some others who are less fortunate would highly appreciate. I've seen certain handcrafts that are intricately designed made by those who are disabled. As a matter of fact, I've bought some of those handcrafts myself, turning them right and left in my fingers, sometimes wondering how they did it. Something so pretty, sold at a fraction of it's price.

This thought that often lingers in my mind brought me to try a new hobby. 

Beading.



I had been buying all these sparkly bracelets and necklaces made of crystals all the time, but never had I tried designing my own, until one day - I stumbled upon a few blogs where they made their own jewelries and I was fascinated. I wondered how it can be done and I started learning by myself, in my room, how to twist this wire and that.

At first, it really hurt my fingers, but then I remembered, at least, I still have them.

I continued designing my own jewelries and I even wore them at places where I had to dress up to go to. I enjoyed doing them and now whenever I'm bored, if I don't play the piano, I will bring out my pliers and cutters and start making a earring or bracelet. Sometimes I don't even have a design in my head. I just go with the flow and, voila, something happen.

If you would like to see some of my jewelries, go to Shop@Enveeus. They're highly affordable too.

Bill said...

I would not have the patents to do that Bella. I admire you for doing things like this. :-D

Nessa said...

Happy Friday!!

Rizal said...

Aha.. Okay Hari ni Rizal tahu Bella main Piano.  Hebat tu.

Menarik tu dah boleh reka anting-anting sendiri.  Syabas.  Tu la, kadang2 rizal terbebel fasal benda itu ini, tapi kadang2 teringat pulak ada yang kurang bernasib baik, tapi cool ajer maintain.  Tak dak mengeluh pun.  : )

Selamat HAri Minggu Bella

Bella Enveeus said...

Yeah, kadangkala kita mudah lupa, tapi sekiranya kita cepat sedar, then tiada masalah la kan.. Cuma org2 yang tak sedar diri tu yang kasi tensi sket.. HAHA! :-D

Oh ya, saya main Piano Rizal.. Especially bila tengah bosan extreme tu, or when I'm emotional.. Oh saya buat anting2, gelang, rantai.. Bila ada material yang cukup, boleh aje buat apa yang patut.. :-) Nak post benda2 lain up for sale di page Shop@Enveeus tu nanti.. ;-)

Bella Enveeus said...

HEHE.. Yeah, I design earrings, bracelets, necklaces, anklets.. Just haven't the time to put them up yet. Will do so soon :-)

Bella Enveeus said...

Hi Nessa,

Yup, I do. I play the Piano mostly when I'm emotional. HAHA! Banging the keys is some sort of therapy to me. I can play for hours sometimes - which probably drives everyone in my house crazy.. Memekak malam2 buta. HAHA!!

Have a good weekend Nessa!

Bella Enveeus said...

Oh thanks Bill.. I don't know, doing stuffs like this takes my mind off things. And at the end with the end result in my hand, it gives me this happy feeling I can't describe. So, I love doing it. :-)

Bella Enveeus said...

Well, it's not exactly a new hobby. I have been doing this for a while but never wrote about it. :-P

Oh, last time I got the stuffs from this store at Berjaya Times Square but then they shifted to Wangsa Maju so now I just buy online.. This place at Jalan Sultan, do they sell swarovskis?

Bella Enveeus said...

Not weird. Everybody's their own individual. :-) Yeah, I know it requires quite an amount of patience but I don't know, I just like to get the end result.

Bella Enveeus said...

HEHE! Yeay another chop LJ!

Bella Enveeus said...

Thanks LJ.. Oh, do you use necklaces or bracelets or anklets? Coz I'm gonna put those up too soon.. :-)
