Afinidad-Bernardo (philstar.com) | Updated June 28, 2017 - 1:49pm Jewelry designer Tim Tam Ong and a piece from her latest collection, "Wonderland." MANILA, Philippines — A Filipina jewelry designer has been invited to go to New York and Paris this year to promote Filipino craftsmanship to the rest of the world. Self-taught jewelry designer Tim Tam Ong revealed in a recent interview with Philstar.com how happy she is for being invited to showcase her creations that root from her deep love of the Philippines and its people. “There was always happiness and excitement in me every time I would open my grandmother’s antique jewelry box. I had a grand time touching and feeling the precious stones,” said Tim Tam, who was named after a brand of chocolates. Her passion for jewelry making began when her husband brought her an intricate stone from Burma. Since she did not know what to do with it, she sketched designs until she came up with her first necklace. Since then, family and friends have been calling her to buy her designs. Thus, from a hobby, jewelry making has become her bread and butter. She eventually found herself artisans and goldsmiths from Bulacan and Laguna and established an atelier in LRI Plaza in Makati City.
