Last August 2010 Everything Bracelets

Hey everyone, thank you for visit today. I really appreciate it ~!
I apologize for the lack of update. I've still been working on orders and packages as normal, just not posting new pieces for sale.

I do have an important announcement to make since I will be out of town this week for a family occasion.

All ordered placed after today will be shipped when I get back in a couple days. Not a drastic delay, just 4-5 days. I just wanted to let you know now in advance as you shop DSK Jewelry.
However, if you place an order by today, August 31, 2010 I will try my best to get our package shipped before I leave for my flight to California.

As some of you who follow me on FB & Twitter may already know, my Grandpa (Ong Noi) passed away a few days ago. Ong Noi in Vietnamese is your paternal Grandfather (Dad's Dad).
It was weird because we got the phone call only an hour after my Aunt landed in Seattle to visit me. We were just walking to our car in Chinatown after eating dinner... You never ever forget when you get that type of phone call. My emotions went from happy to see my Aunt..to being really sad about losing my Grandpa.

It's been hard these past few days mentally. You're kind of in your own dream world when you're awake just thinking about your loved one. A lot of thoughts run through your head of the memories you have of them. You try so hard to remember each and every time you saw and spoke to them. It's a really strange feeling emotionally to lose someone close, and you don't know what it's like until you've experienced it first hand. The emotions don't really hit you until you accept the fact that they're gone. The first time I lost a family member was when my Grandma (Ba Noi) passed last year in March.

I don't want anyone to feel sad, but I felt it's appropriate to let you know what's going on in my life. I feel as if I've gotten so close to so many of you over the past year. And I just know our friendship will continue to grow as we get to know each other better over the years. I appreciate all of the kind thoughts I've received from all of you, my friends. The amount of support through blog is beyond amazing. Thank you for being there for me when I just need to get my thought out.
I do miss my Grandparents a lot since they're forever a part of my heart. Their memory will forever be celebrated.

I'll be back soon, take care everyone

OMG... I had no idea! I am so sorry, Steph! I lost my grandpa years ago. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with.

I know there isn't much anyone can say other than: "I'm here if you need to talk." You know you can always send me an e-mail. Or heck, seeing that we're neighbors, if you ever want to meet up for coffee, let me know.

You and your family will get through this. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers!

Holler at me if you need to, okay?


P. S. On a happier note, your bracelets are stunning! I especially love the first one. (I am such a purple addict!) One day, I hope to have the success you have had in the world of jewelry.

:( I am sorry for your lost. Your Ong Noi and Ba Noi will always be with you. looking after you and giving you blessings from wherever they are :)

Esther said...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I know how that feels, as my grandma, and last grandparent, died mid May last year. At the same time, I know that at least for me, I hated when people kept on asking what happened or saying how they feel bad. I think I speak for a lot of other people, but we are here not only as customers, but as support too!

Lara said...

Hi Steph,

I am soo soo sorry to hear about your loss. I hope everything will be fine with your family and especially with your father and aunt. I have been through this personally so I do understand how it feels. Thank you for sharing your feelings with us.

Susan said...

Sooo Beautiful!! Both bracelets are amazing!! I love your mix of crystals and pearls. The necklace's gold definitely makes the Blue Sapphire pop!! The Moonlight charm is perfect for a DSK memory going back to school.
Thank you for thinking of your bloggers during this time.
Have a safe trip to California and Take Care!

Hello Steph, I saw the news about your grandpa's passing on your twitter and I just want to say I'm sorry for your loss. I know how it feels to lose a loved one because i lost my grandpa almost 5 years ago. I remember when I first received the news; that one phone call. It didn't stink in until a few seconds later. It was a huge blow for me because my grandpa was one of the most important person in my life and he was the only surviving grandparent i had, and worse, I'd never lost a loved one before him. So his death affected me deeply and it changed my life. I cried the hardest at the funeral too. Reading your post about your grandpa made me think about mine and to this day, I still miss him like crazy. Gahh I think i'm going to stop here cause i feel like tearing up just thinking about this lol.. Stay strong Steph. It's not easy but just know that your grandpa will always be there with you. Be well and take good care of yourself <3

On the brighter side, i love the new Everything bracelets ^^
