Obsession: Makeup Brushes & Vintage Jewellery

A quick update on what I’ve been up to of late.

Still dizzy over crochet jewellery. The one on the left is made with nylon strings; the one of the right with wire. Found out about Gloom card games a few months back and couldn’t resist the art work on these transparent cards. So I used it and turned it into a glass-tile pendant.

Speaking of glass tile jewellery, here’s one with my chubby hands. I stole the flower from this card my mom received years ago from a I-can’t-remember-what company. It’s good to keep those mails and pamphlets you receive. They will one day come in handy when you are caught bored in the office with hours to kill.

While googling (“google” should be added to the dictionary, seeing that when you right-click on the red-underlined “google”, the phrase “search Google for google” comes up) ways to keep my makeup brushes, a picture of makeup brushes neatly placed on a bamboo mat appeared. So I thought I could make myself one.

I don’t like placing them in a container. Mostly because I don’t use them very often so I don’t want them to be sitting there collecting dust. I spent some time looking for a vintage straw dispenser to hold my brushes so that at least there is a lid over them. But I couldn’t find one. In the end, all I needed was a trip to Daiso, 2 sushi mats, some elastic band, a lot of patience and a couple of hours to make this sushi mat makeup brush holder to display all my brushes conveniently.

Now, all that’s left is to make a simple bag to keep those rolled up mats.
