My favorite thing about the Try Handmade Gallery is that I know that every day I will be surprised by something wonderful. A perfect example is Chilli Crab. What wonderful intricate creations.
Chilli Crab: i am a german expat happily living in singapore with my husband and two sons. i really enjoy the freedom of being engaged with the things that i have been doing for more than 6 years now.
the biggest influence on me becoming a creative person definitely comes from my parents and my mother-in-law. my mother loved to do any kind of handcrafts, from knitting, crocheting to silk painting and sewing. she did everything. my father is talented with any kind of woodwork. and my mother-in-law is a great painter and artist in general.
but the decision to keep my fingers busy with other things than typing the keyboard in a software company came during my first pregnancy. i felt almost forced to create crochet treasures and made a lot of gifts for friends and family. after that my interest evolved into designing home accessories. later i got interested in creating jewelry. nowadays, i still maintain my interests in all these areas.
