"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." - Harriet Tubman
It has been 317 days since I finished my last day on my Jewellery + Object Diploma at the Design Center Enmore Tafe.
I started the course by leaving my previous job as a software consultant, naively with courage but unsure of where the new journey will lead me. It has been many years since I tamper with the creative side of my brain and I fell in love with the process of design and making almost immediately. Using my own hands to actually make something - I find it to be a very rewarding experience.
After graduation, I know that my dream is to create and share designs I love with people around the world. However there are still many small steps to do before I can achieve my goal: logo, website, social media, packaging design, sourcing suppliers, and most importantly: my collection designs. These were fields that I am unfamiliar with and there were a lot of trial and errors and hurdles in the process.
As a result it took longer than my anticipation but I also learned and gained a lot on the way too. One of the most valuable lessons I took away was when you are in doubt, take a small break and remind yourself of your goal and passion, and your doubt will replace itself with strength.
I am really pleased that I am able to finally launch my brand "Little Rambutan Jewellery" today. I want to especially dedicate my thanks to my dear friends and family (you know who you are!) for your support and feedback all along.
I hope you will come to love my 2 new collections: Droplet and Blossom, both inspired by mother nature.
Finally, welcome to Little Rambutan Jewellery! :)
