BeadPassion: Review and Giveaway!!


While browsing through Etsy I chanced upon Beadpassion and was amazed by her creations! What she does is create amazing and very life-like pieces of jewelry and cellphone charms! Seriously when I looked at her pieces I got hungry! I was so amazed that she created all her pieces using clay! I mean clay can be quite hard to work with, but the amazing detail in each piece truly blew me away! I really loved her cupcake jewelry as well as her cute pug ones too! The best part is the great prices! Perfect for gifts or a great and cute way to accessorize your outfit! You can seriously go on a major spending spree without breaking the bank!

Helen was so amazing to send me not only an awesome necklace but a pair of earrings as well! I was in awe when I recieved my items and I really loved the personal touch that she had with her packaging!

I got this amazing cupcake necklace that looked so real that I wanted to eat it....or at least made me crave a real cupcake! Look at all the amazing details! like the strawberries! I seriously do not know where she gets not only her talent but her patience as well!!


The second item that I reviewed was the Lucite White Petal Earings. They were nice and light and very flirty! I really loved all the movement that the earrings hand and they had such a nice feel to them as well.

(Read my review here!)

Here is her interview:

Name: Helen


Name of shop: www.beadpassion.etsy.com

Location: Philippines

Favourite item from your shop: Oh there are quite a lot - mostly cupcakes. I love my buttterfly edition cupcakes, watermelon cupcake, all the fruit topped o

nes. Pug clays are also a favorite.

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

Simple, uncomplicated, happy - thats who I am and the life I'm living. I'm a mother to my wonderful 2 year old son, I love coffee, and I'm addicted to creating with polymer clay.

When and what made you want to open up your shop?

I set up my etsy shop August last year, but launched my products only after 2 months. I decided to sell my products online because I thought that I could offer something unique. And because they are handmade, I believe that the customer is sure to get a one of a kind item. Aside from that, my goal also is to lighten up someone's day with my clays.

Tell us a little bit more about your creation process:

I can officially begin my craft only when my son is asleep. I start with a cup of coffee, lay out my materials and tools. Most of the time, I already have a design in my mind. To work with polymer clay, the clays need to be conditioned first. After conditioning I mix the clays to get the color I want, then I hand sculpt everything, afterwards I bake the items. Sounds pretty easy but in reality, it isn't. Conditioning takes time, but sculpting takes the longest time. Most especially with intricate designs. On an average it takes about an hour to hand sculpt one piece. The baking takes30mins. If requested, I gloss the product before shipping it out. Every item is made with so much love!

Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?

I draw my inspiration usually from my interests - foods, dogs, nature, from wonderful works of other artists. I also get inspiration and encouragement from my mom and sisters. I'm a bit conservative when it comes to colors. They're the ones who love vibrant colors so I just think about what they might like and make them. I'm thankful to have a supportive husband (he made my shop banner), he sometimes suggests things I can create. Also the nice words from satisfied customers inspires me to make more.

If you could be an animal what would you be and why?

I think I'd be a dog because they are adorable and loyal.


If you could have one super power what would it be and why?

I wish to be able to restore mother earth from the ravages of man (now you think I'm boring you)

How to Enter:
go to Helen's etsy shop, BeadPassion...

but when I did, it went to another etsy shop called Shining Stones - let your light shine.

New to blogging, so I wouldn't be surprised! haha

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

oh. sorry about another question, but you mentioned going to Ellie's blog. did you mean Helen's blog?

Is there somewhere written what Helen's blog address is?
