VF's Beads & Baubles Madness

Yes, one craze led to another. From World Cup fanatic, I've progressed to bead junkie. I find myself twisting wire threads and weaving beads with nylon threads till wee hours almost everyday. My eyes! I'm still learning (Bless the Internet!) and here are some of the stuff I've made over the week.

This is a birthday present for my buddy, Reena. Happy 23rd Birthday, girl! I made this twice because I used the wrong type of thread the first round and everything startd to curl up but I'm quite pleased with the result. It's not perfect, but I think it's a great first attempt!

I made this today (yes, I'm working on a Saturday... zzz) at work. I absolutely like the geometric shape but I think I might have messed up the bead count. It doesn't look proportionate. It looks nice on my finger though.

I weaved this two days back. It was too big for my finger! Might just give it to my mum for her scarf or... napkin holder??

Here are some random earrings I made awhile back.

Okay, back to work. Baybeats today, anyone?

Miu Miu Fall/Winter 2006

Vogue Factory experienced "HALT" couture for awhile. So, sorry for the hiatus. The socceroos are back even though France lost the Cup to stinky Italians. Life goes on, right? Zizou, we still love you. Thanks for teaching the Italians some manners. Headbutt-ing is the new pink. AnywaY, BACK TO BUSINESS:

Miu Miu, the younger sister of Prada is finally back on the web. The latest Fall/Winter 2006 campaign features China's sweetheart, Zhou Xun from the fame of Perhaps Love, Dong Jie and Rina Ohta. These three beautiful Asian women symbolise timeless beauty bundled with their ancient cultured background.

The campaign showcases the depth and wisdom of ancient culture as well as the futuristic vision of 'Haute Couture'. With its fantasy-like setting, the photos emote a nostalgic Parisian environment with a hint of disorientation.

I've always dig this bag. Ahh, temptations.

Trench coats! Something we could never actually "wear" here. Yum.

MAAD Sunday

This is "the" Flea Market for indie shoppers who love everything hand-made and one-of-a-kind. MAAD (Market of Artist and Designer) starts today from 11am to 7pm at red dot museum, Maxwell Road. Such an amazing platform for newcomers and budding designers/musicans/artists to showcase their work and more importantly, gain exposure and make some moolah. So head down to MAAD today or any other Sunday!
