Sparkling Saturday: Lee Min Ho

Annyeonghaseyo,
Oh well, I mean Hello 😉

It’s been over than one month since my last post. Okay, two months I think. Many things happened since then: my holidays to Jogjakarta, exploring metal smithing a bit further (this time I learned how to solder metal, folding metal sheet and texturing a bit), helping a friend with her auction, and watch a lot of movies *big grin*

I will write about my holidays and exploriment (exploring and experimenting) with metal smithing later. I’m not in the mood for it when I have more interesting thing to share..

I watched a lot of movies lately. My hubby set up a DVD player and a TV for me in our spare room. So, whenever Claire sleeps, I run to that room and watch some of my favorite movies drama.
I started with Meteor Garden.

This drama series first aired over a decade ago. I was in high school back then. And yes, I was in love with those four pretty boys lol.
I found out that I still have those romantic-silly-girl inside me.. Well good to know that 😀

Next drama was Korean Drama Full House which made me giggle after nonstop-crying-session from Meteor Garden.

Then I moved to my favorite Korean Drama ever: City Hunter.
Based on Japanese Manga, this Kdrama featuring Lee Min Ho / 이민호 . I fell in love (again!) with him.
I won’t praise him too much because it might be biased. But all I can tell is: Lee Min Ho is a good actor.
I love how he put so much expression (deep ones) into his eyes.

Then I started to watch his other dramas such as Boys Over Flowers, Personal Taste, Mackerel Run . I’m watching Faith at this moment, and can’t wait for his new series Heirs.

Like other fans of him (well, they called Minoz) I do a lil research about this charming actor who caught my heart.. And find out that he just launched his first album..
Well, his songs now become must-listened-to in my iTunes 😉

Sometimes it feels like I’m acting silly. Oh c’mon, I’m married with a kid.. And still I fall for (and shamelessly called myself Minoz lol) this cute actor.
But I can’t deny that this is a good intermezzo for me. It also boost my creative mood better than before.

Hopefully I won’t watch too much and forget to work on my jewelries lol.

Sparkling Saturday: Sexy rought tanzanite

Hullo!!! *snort*
I still get this flu and sore throat and terrible coughs. My nose is already turned red few days ago. And I keep *snort* all day long.

Okay, that’s it! I don’t wanna make you bored with my rants about this *snort* influenza. Let’s talk about something beautiful: newest addition to my blinking sparkling gemstones stash (doesn’t mean I have many of them lol).

Today’s sparkle comes from my new baby. A rough tanzanite. I got great deal :p

Okay, let’s see it (at least what the seller said to me)..
It’s a natural tanzanite, not a glass or synthetic ones. I have to believe him at this point, because I have to send the stone to a gemologist if I wanna check it.
It’s green with some shades of purple on the edge. It’s almost blue where the green touch purple.. These colours reminds me of Aegean Sea (No, I haven’t been there YET. Just some world wide web trip there lol)
The shape reminds me of Swarovski’s baroque pendant, with more asymmetry and rough edges, and no holes on it.

Here it is:

Isn’t it pretty?
Oh yes, I can see you nod your head.
I can even hear your ‘ooooooh’s and ‘aaaaaaaah’s lol.

Biggest problem now: what should I do with it?
I can’t drill a hole through it by myself. I must go to a metalsmith, or gemstones worker to have it drilled- which is impossible with my conditions at this moment. And to be honest, I don’t want to do it.

I can’t make my own metal bezel because I can’t do metalsmith.. And I think metal bezel will screw it backside.

I think I want some reversible design for this baby. Do you have any idea where I could find some references? Or do you have other suggestions?

Sparkling Saturday: London Blue Topaz – my new treasure

Last week I got a great deal with a friend of mine. She offered me a beautiful tiny gems: a rare london blue topaz.

I’m not that kinda person who really fond of gems. Well, maybe because I don’t understand about it, and maybe because I don’t have too much spare fund for that lol.
But I always attracted by colorful and shiny sparkling things-*Okay, you can call me Ms. Magpie :D*- and this gems definitely has beeyooowteefuuul color, and irresistible shine.
It also comes with gems certificate to ensure that it’s genuine.

The most important reason why I finally bought it is: this stone perfectly suits my newest design.
It has the color I’ve been searching for, it was cut perfectly, the facets and shape are perfect for my design.

It was a big decision for me, to buy this lil treasure. And I can’t wait to hold it in my hands. It’s on its way at this moment.

Well, that’s for now. I will update you with real pictures when I get it 🙂

Ciao!!
