hana said...

1. Hannah. Born in Hawaii, grew up in Malaysia and now residing in LA. Am Chinese. How confusing XD

2. I have you in Google Reader so I read you the moment you update and as for your website.... sigh I click it multiple times a day ogling your items.

3. From JEN @ frmmheadtotoe <333

4. Do you mean you or your products? But either way, I like how its organized, the items intricate and unique and how you're always striving to expand your skills to ensure the best quality you can offer :)

Oh oh and the insanely fast shipping! Damn I love it when I see 'item shipped' as soon as I paid ^^

5. One thing I would LOVE is to have all products modeled if possible. So we can get a rough idea on how it looks on a person. Somehow, when its modeled, I have a better picture in my head and would tend to make decisions to buy more often than not since I know for sure what exactly I would be getting :D

6. I told my friend Nasha about you ^_______^

7. Floral Radiance: Pink & White. I have been eying that for a LOOOONG time and am thinking though on how would it look if I were to switch the crystal hearts for white pearls hmm. Sadly I have a poor imagination so I will have to photoshop it later to see how it would look and decide if I want to get it like that or with pearls XD

Currently, the gorgeous SuperNova necklaces! But my Origami Butterfly earrings remain very close to my heart :]

5. What can He Qi do to improve?
It may be just me but some of the jewelry pics are taken was way too much flash. I remember it took me a long time to make my first purchase b/c I couldn't tell if the jewelry was 'really' sparkley or just shiny b/c of the flash. Also, some pieces only have a pic of the earrings laying flat, some pictures of the earring actually "hanging" would be great.

6. This isn't a question, but tell ONE other person today about He Qi-- let me know who you told! Amy, a friend.

7. What's your current favorite item on the He Qi website? Angel of the Lemonades

3. How did you hear about He Qi?
I think through a blog, frmheadtotoe, if I remember correctly :)

4. What is your favorite thing about He Qi?

I read whenever you make a post, usually the very same day haha

3. How did you hear about He Qi?
Honestly I don't even remember anymore!

4. What is your favorite thing about He Qi?
The quality. It's lovely, and there are so many choices made with good materials and with intricate techniques. Other jewelers just stick a heart with a bail on a chain, and that's what most of their collections consist of, your pieces have variety and effort!

5. What can He Qi do to improve?
Oh geez...haha I really don't know! I'm pretty happy with it already. Maybe more bracelets?

6. This isn't a question, but tell ONE other person today about He Qi-- let me know who you told!

Aquamarine Super nova earrings! THEY ARE GORGEOUS!!! I saw them yesterday and linked my friend to them immediately, as I drooled, haha ^^.

stochastic888 said...

1. My name is Tina and I am from Massachusetts. :)
2. I don't read He Qi blog as often as I visit the He Qi website because I love looking at the new designs.
3. I heard about He Qi from Manwomanfilm on Youtube, she was doing a review on your earring and I just thought to myself "those are the prettiest earrings I've seen in a while."
4. My favorite thing about He Qi is the handmade/homemade quality behind each of the jewelries. The amount of care and effort behind each jewelry is seen, and I just love homemade/handmade jewelries, they just have a extra sparkle behind them.
5. I can't find any ways that He Qi can improve, because I haven't ordered from the website yet, and I feel that I can't really say what needs to be improved.
6. I told my mom about He Qi and the website. She loved everything that was there, but she especially loved the Sailor Jupiter Earrings.
7. It's so hard to choose my favorite item on the website. There are two things that I love and it is the Sailor Jupiter Earrings and Eternal Sailor Moon because I grew up watching Sailor Moon and it has always been my favorite anime ever! My friends and I in the second used to play Sailor Moon tag, and seeing those earrings bring back memories from my childhood.

Happy Birthday and Thank you! :D

1. Anna Wu, Canada - living in Ottawa( for work)...wanting to go back to Vancouver (where family and friends are)

2. Every morning when i get to my cubical - it's part my "getting ready to work routine"

3. I've been a long time admirer of your craftmanship - ever since Jen ( frmheadtotoe ) first blogged about the gorgeous Mother of Pearls back in sept 2009.

4. I like your range in inspiration, recently you engaged your readers for our thoughts and ideas for holidays and currently this week a sailor moon theme. Your style is playful and sophisticated. I very much enjoy the simplicity,elegance and balance in the jewelry you make. there's variety but it still maintains your style - and approach to jewelry.

5. Sometimes i find it frustrating when a type of earring doesn't exist anymore - or it's taken off the grid with out a notification. I do realize that there is threshold to how many you make - what parts/materials are available at the time... aside from that... the post about taking the initiative think about the environment -you made valid reason why packaging was less - and opened up your thoughts to us - i really appreciate that...

6. when ever i get asked about your earrings I share your website with them. Im hopping to get Ira Chung hooked on HQCD - gonna send her the floral radiance once it arrives... AND ... i showed her the Jupiter studs... her eyes went BIG! and she squealed ( this woman is very composed and formal but she squealed like a little school girl... chirping "aww it's so CUTE".. i had a sweatdrop moment...)

7. due to spontaneous purchasing moments... I've purchased all my favorite earring designs...My first one was Rockstar...and i am madly in love with it

it could be a tie btw lucky leaves (the inspiration referencing back to our culture) and My volcanic romance...(just ended a summer fling...every time i look at it... green with warm tones... feels calming - but at the same the galactic crystal pendant is edged...and rocky... kinda how this fling was... warm and calming but rocky and unsteady...it just didn't end the way i wanted it to... and the pearl gives it a nice..." you know you move on - because you deserve better" metaphor/kick

yeah my favorite now has got to be Volcanic romance... its bittersweet... romance

Well enjoy your labor day weekend! I loved the BAY AREA!!! I'm actually jetting back to Vancouver (taking my vacation from work...) My boss was like your 23! you should go to New york or Hawaii/ somewhere exotic... but you're choosing to go home... why!?"

my answer: THE comfort FOOD...grandma and grandpa's cooking...mom's cooking...Korean BBQ...fresh sushi...RAMEN(they don't have Japanese Ramen here in Ottawa) they don't have authentic oriental food...their Chinatown is a 2 block radius...

But ottawa has it's perks don't get me wrong... i love it here... but i love home-bound food more!

i plan to return to ottawa 10lb heavier... )

1 more hour until i can leave - to catch my flight...could not get any work done...

GOODBYE OTTAWA.... HELLO VANCOUVER food...
