It's always too dark to photograph...argh

I've been working late at work, and by the time I get home, I'm itching to make stuff, but it's way too dark to photograph the things I make. So I do have a pile of new things, but no photographs! I hope to get caught up this weekend, although a good friend is visiting from NY and we also have to clean and I want to spend time with her!

However, I did get time this past weekend to prep my consignment stock for!! YAY!!! I started out with 20 items, and it'll really be exciting to see the stuff on the site, because there are so many amazing other artists on there!

I also bought a bunch of hair clips and hairbands, and am planning to make some hair accessories!! I love hair accessories, I bought this from from SoCalWindy and wore it out to a club. Some guy came over and said "Those flowers are nice!" and I looked at him and said "They are feathers". And looked at him. And he had nothing to say so he walked away. *lol*

Wow has it been a long time!

I have been so so lazy about updating this blog! I just checked my traffic stats and realised that it has been getting quite some traffic, I guess from my recent efforts to promote my designs. It has been a really busy month!

Update 1) So this was a loooooong time ago, but my victorian rocker bride earrings were featured on Modish! I was really really excited, and still am very grateful to Modish and their readers for featuring etsy week. =) Click on the picture to shop!

Update 2) New consignment batch at hannahzakari! I think that this is one of the reasons that I have been getting more traffic, and I am really really psyched to be part of this fantastic and beautiful site.

Shop pequitobun at HannahZakari!

Update 3) Items to come on! Equally stoked, more info to come when the items appear!

Update 4) NEW WEBSITE!! (I would put this in flashing letters if I could) I had designed this for some time but wasn't sure if I should launch it since I know I'm going to be just as bad at keeping it updated. But I think it's good for me to learn some discipline! Here is the link, let me know what you think!

pequitobun's new website!

Update 5) Tons and tons of new stuff in my etsy shop!

i heard blogger is user-friendly even for the computer illiterate

Hi everyone!

I (barely) started a blog over at myspace (add me! but I just couldn't increase the font size! I know it's supposed to be easy but I had copied the code from one of those free myspace code sites, and it is 3 pages long. I couldn't figure out where to change the font to make the darned blog font legible...

Enough of my woes. Bottom line: Blogger is supposed to be super user-friendly. Let me test it to its limits.

It is strangely liberating to write under a pseudonym. Well, it's not really a pseudonym because it's my line of jewellery. But still, I sort of am representing just one side of me, and I will be able to write freely about my crafting, and just that. I started a few "life" blogs, but somehow never really got into it. I think this will be different, this will be a way for me to share one side of me, a quieter side, with a world (or at least a few people...?) who will know me just for this side of me.

I'm excited! Let me tell you about me. I am a student by day and fledgling jewellery (or jewelry, depending on where you're from!!) designer by night. My line, pequitobun, is named after my sweet little holland lop bunny. I focus on vintage materials, and this was borne out of a need to create, and yet recycle.

How I work: I like to focus on one or two key eye-catching pieces, set them on my pink leopard print felt, pick out a bunch of other things that might look good with them, move them around and around and around until I am satisfied with the arrangement, add some chains, switch up the metals (I love copper right now), hang them up, set them down, step 10 feet back, and finally, I might be pleased and turn in for a good night's satisfied sleep. It's addictive.

I know most designers have a "look". But I can't. I thought about it, but I love so many styles, and creating new shapes, I love colours, I love to match and clash, I love different metals, patinas, lucite, glass.... so, I think it'll just have to be lots of things that I love. No "look".

Ok, till next time, my invisible audience. Please feel free to email me at with comments, and especially if you would like to sign up for my mailing list!
