Happy Cinco de Mayo!

The sun is shining down on us and everyone here at Bow & Crossbones would like to wish a

Happy Cinco de Mayo

to anyone celebrating this weekend!


It's time to pull out your best satin shoes, grab a partner and get your Jarabe Tapatío on the dance floor!

For any lovelies who aren't familiar with this colourful chance to party, here's a quick Top 5 Facts;


    1. Cinco de Mayo, literally meaning Fifth of May, celebrates the Anniversary of the 1862 Battle of Puebla when the Mexican army defeated the troops of Napoleon III.


2. The most popular food to be eaten in Puebla on Cinco de Mayo will probably be Mole Poblano, a complex, dark and thick saucy dish involving chili, chocolate and spices.



3. The people of the Peñón de los Baños, Mexico City will present their annual play depicting the Cinco de Mayo battle. As the French invaders take on the Mexican army some skirmishes will use real gunpowder rifles! Yikes!



4. Over 600,000 Los Angeleans will gather for the annual Festival de Fiesta Broadway which is the largest Cinco de Mayo event in the world.



5. You don't need to be Mexican to enjoy Cinco de Mayo! This is a time to celebrate all the things hispanic culture has to offer, so take the opportunity to dive into this fabulous fiesta.

Now, where's my sombrero?

    I think i shud write you a great comment about the peanndt necklace you hav done for me. Awesome piece of work! I was searching for someone who can do for me, some jewellery retailer quoted me 10K for a piece. But you are charging me half of that price. Really appreciate tat. Thanks a lot. Got your newsletter about the promotion. You give out RM 1K for wedding ring?! Any terms and conditions? Too bad i’m married =( But probably i can get an anniversary ring instead. Ha haKeep up the good work.

    Dear Ling,it is sort of like our destiny to find your wisebte through googling and little did we know that we’ll end up in getting my wedding band from you!i know you’ve tried very hard in finding solutions for the word carvings, although it did not turn out like what we’ve expected, we seriously appreciate your effort for trying to fulfill our wishes. i know it is hard to bear with Niel at times because she’s really fussy when it comes to things that does not go her way. thanks for giving us the extras. the amount i paid you is for 0.75 carats but you gave me 1.14 carats instead to make up for the carvings. we really like the shimmering effect of the pave diamond ring!well, thanks again!Max & Niel

  • Sami - December 21, 2015

    Whoah! Guess i am not the only person who is spburely satisfied with the great job you have done for us. This is the very moment that we truely appreciate your hardworks and kind guidance to make our wedding ring a successful one.Initially i was wondering will the ring look nice on my finger because i never thought of having this kind of slightly complicated ring. To my amaze, it looks perfect on my finger! Belum try, belum tau ; Sekali try, hari hari mau. haha!You are such a nice girl to talk to, even my hubby who normally talk lesser seems to take very much interest in your designs. That time, we think we actually found the right person to design something special for us. You proved us right!Thanks Ling for such a wonderful ring. God Bless. Love,Cynthia

    Sue is very adaptable, hoinpg to provide enough encouragement to people of all ages and abilities to realize that we all have the ability to make a piece of jewellery we are proud of, either for ourselves or as a gift. You can learn the basics of how to put beads together to their best effect, and do simple yet professional finishings. You may want to experiment with earrings punk, pearl or whatever takes your fancy.You may want to use charms and learn how to string them to good effect or you could be interested in producing something totally different and really over the top.Recycling your old jewellery is another really rewarding opportunity, and if you would like to learn how to make your own beads with either wire or fimo, or rolled felt to be used in your own creation this is the workshop for you.Love Susan

  • Irene - December 21, 2015

    Oh Marlene! You made me laugh :))I’m terrible at taikng pictures tried to get a good shot of the earrings but didn’t manage to.PS: I don’t look like a model at all in real life. The light (or better, the lack of light) in the pictures works in my favour!
