Bosquejo, El Bosquejo, and

Just a quick update on what I've been doing for the past two weeks:

1. I've finally registered, which redirects to this blog.

Blog update 01

2. I've also registered (no redirect yet), where I'll soon put up an online gallery (with an order form) of the jewelry I've been making, which go under the name Bosquejo.

I know it's a bit confusing using almost the same name for two different things, but as my friend once said, my pieces reflect the same detail-oriented aesthetic in this blog.

3. I've decided on a calling card design (much improved!), which I can't wait to show you once they're done.

Blog update 02

4. I've been really enjoying finding all sorts of stuff — mostly used in clothing — to incorporate into my necklaces, including wooden coat toggles, trouser/blouse clasps, more fasteners, eyelets, grommets, buttons, and a lot more I have yet to discover the names of.

Blog update 03

5. Discovered that ginseng-based Bacchus (sugar-free) is a better energy drink than Red Bull, in terms of additional waking hours.

6. I have "designed" my first ever jacket: what I'll be wearing as best man at my brother's wedding. Can't wait to show you how the tailor joined all my specs: vents, narrow shawl lapel, and cropped length for a single-breasted piece.

7. Unfortunately, I have asked the tailor to adjust the jacket to fit my narrower frame (smaller shoulders and chest, but also waist!) as a result of sleepless nights. Now I'm not sure if I want to gain that weight after the wedding, since the jacket would already have been adjusted!

Hang on in there. Will resume normal posting before you know it. Now I've got to get back to work. The bazaar is in two weeks! Wish me luck...

I'd love to see the custom jacket! It's such a dream of mine to have a custom suit. Congratulations to your brother!

Which reminds me I should be getting my own domain soon too!

Can't wait for regular programming to resume over here!

Congratulations, seems like things are going well. I will keep an eye on your new line of jeweelry.

Also, just wanted to let you and a few of my old readers (that I still remember, heheh) know that I have started again.

Take care and keep in touch.
