Have you checked out the swanky new site that showcases handmade creations and handcrafted wonders by our very own Malaysians?  It’s called handmade.my and it is a truly a Made in Malaysia, and made by Malaysians site.

The site is structured similar to Etsy.com, and carries beautifully handmade products by our fellow Malaysians.  Just recently launched in mid-March, handmade.my currently has over 700 listings of products ranging from jewelry, bookmarks, bags, hair accessories, soaps and so much more.

Shopping and payment terms are determined by each individual seller on handmade.my, so do read the terms and conditions before placing an order.

If you love handmade products, and in that vein, uniquely crafted goods, you’ll love  handmade.my.  And I bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the amount of talents there are too!

Gorgeous handmade accessories at Sweet Contemplation Accessories

A few years ago, a friend of mine who had visited Australia, presented me with a pair of gemstone earrings she had gotten for me as a souvenir.  They were very simple drop earrings, with a brown gemstone (can’t recall what the stone was), and I absolutely loved them!  I wore them almost every day, but unfortunately, one day, the stone dropped out and I lost it forever.  I never could find a replica like that anywhere, and I figured that my best bet now would be to make myself a similar pair of earrings.  But amid all my daily chores and projects (like my knitting project), I can hardly find time to make myself some jewelry.  SIGH.

But that’s the long story of it.  I have a dinner to attend next month, and my plan was to make myself some accessories to wear.  Since I am running out of time, I decided to postpone my jewelry-making project.  Part of the reason is because of my busy schedule and part of it is also because I found the perfect handmade piece for my outfit at Sweet Contemplation Accessories!

 

Sweet Contemplation Accessories offers gorgeous handmade accessories that sparkle, dazzle and are so pretty, it makes me want to buy the whole collection!  The store is based in Australia, and all the accessories are handmade by its proud owner, and a friend of mine, blogger Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous!  Tine specializes in beautifully handcrafted chainmaille, and pretty glasswork beads, crystals, pearls,…you name it, she’s got it.

The store carries a wide selection of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and even specially designed watches that are sure to make a statement.  Shipping to anywhere within Australia is absolutely FREE, and a mere AUD6 to anywhere else in the world (FREE international shipping for purchases above AUD100).

Good news is that you have 4 days left to utilize the 15% discount (use coupon code LAUNCH09, valid till November 16 2009).

I saw.  I contemplated.  I chose and I got what I wanted.  What about you?

I’m waiting for my parcel to arrive next week :)
