After a couple of months toiling with pins, beads, chains and others, I decided it was the time to try making a brooch. After seeing the instructions in several books, I was quite confident I would able to do it. "Doesn't seem to be that difficult," I mused back then.
Ha! What a fool I've been. It was darn difficult. And truth to tell, I'm not that pleased with the result. I think it will take quite a while before I'm able to sell my handmade brooches in Rumah Pernik.
