Mini Christmas Collection - Masterpost

Christmas is just around the corner - exactly a month away!

What better way to look forward to it with anticipation than to celebrate it with a mini Christmas collection, yeah?


Last year, we had a White Winter Hymnal collection, so if you're looking for Christmas-themed gifts, you should go check that out! This collection is a "mini" one - only 3 accessories, to be featured in the few coming posts:

Part 1: Fairy Floss Christmas
Part 2: Morning Star
Part 3: Festive Cheer

Don't forget that the pre-Christmas sale is still goin' on, so you have a few more days to "cash in"!

Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la la la!

Sunday Stylefile #7

(Let's pretend it's still Sunday)

We are nearing the end of November, so it's time for another Sunday Stylefile!

I've always tried to focus on clothing of various colours that match the featured accessory, and this time it's one of my favourite colours - midnight blue. It's such a gorgeous, rich colour - more striking than black, yet just as elegant. All the dresses featured in this particular post, I covet and covet (and have stared at for way too long). But first! Here's the midnight-blue accessory in question - Midsummer Night's Dream:
Midnight blue faux pearls, interspersed with some burgundy for a dash of colour, accompanied by moon and star charms. The dresses below all have midnight blue / navy blue as their base colour, coupled by splashes of colour in their motifs:


On ze left, what could be cuter than this adorable Cupcake-Patterned Dress from Emcee Couture.
In ze middle, look demure and utterly enchanting in this Floral Enchantment Flare Dress from Whitesoot.
On ze right, gear up for a great day out frolicking in gardens with this Flower-Patterned Dress from Hutz Fashion.

*Disclaimer* I own not the images above, they are from the sites that I have credited. I wish I owned the dresses though. :p
Click on the links to go buy them pretty dresses. :)
Since it's sale month till the end of November, I'll one-up the sale and this piece (the only available piece) can be purchased at 30% off - originally RM15, now it is retailing at RM10.50. Let's make that RM10! Woot! Check out more pictures of the bracelet here!
*Once the available piece is sold, all subsequent orders from now till the next Sunday Stylefile will retail at 10% off (i.e. RM13.50). Savvy? :D

Email me at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com if you'd like to get this!

With that, I'll bid you adieu.
Have a good week ahead, folks. 

Much love,
me!

For Karuna

Happy Saturday, my dear blog readers!

I'll keep this post short as it's a busy day ahead. :)

Here's a long overdue post about a tiny birthday gift I made for Karuna. Funny story - I had actually made this pair of earrings for her much earlier, in shades of maroon and black. Then sometime after (before her birthday), she purchased some earrings from me in the exact same shade of maroon! So I thought it would be better to change it up slightly to a shade that she doesn't have yet (at least not from her collection of earrings made by me). Heehee.
 Dark silver faux pearls, clover links, jet black helix crystals and dainty butterfly links.
Item Code & Name: 314 Papillon
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Dark Silver Faux Pearls, Jet Black Helix Crystals, Clover Links, Butterfly Links

Toodles!

Grow in Faith - Customised

Bookmarks have become quite a regularly customised item at Dainty Little Trinkets. I can see why - it's a great gift for those who don't accessorise much, and everybody reads, right? (ok, almost everybody. :p). One of my friends who probably wins the award for most number of features on this blog - Ai Li- recently customised a bookmark for herself... one to accompany her through many a book, with many cups of coffee on lazy days.

This bookmark is actually based on another bookmark, customised for Angela's turning-21 friend - The Key to Spring. Here's a slightly modified version of it. 
 A soft lilac pearl, a soft pink flower cabochon on an intricate flower filigree, a deep purple round-faceted chinese crystal and a cross. This bookmark is smaller than the one from The Key to Spring - lighter, nimbler (and more affordable too!)
Item Code & Name: 313 Grow in Faith
Price: RM16.00
Status: [Sold], Available for different remake (I've run out of this particular flower cabochon - it can be replaced with a pink dahlia (seen here!))
Materials: Soft Lilac Faux Pearl, Purple Round-Faceted Chinese Crystal, Pink Flower Cabochon, Flower Filigree

Email me at the address below if you'd like to customise a bookmark for yourself or for your friends!


Friendly reminder that a SALE is going on yo!

Thank you and good night! :)

Pre-Christmas Sale

Hello hello...

It's one month till Christmas, one month till the holidays, one month till we call in a new year. Who's excited for 2015? :D

BUT FIRST!
I've been doing a lot of online shopping lately (it's an uncontrollable addiction. it's a terrible affliction). There are SALES EVERYWHERE. How am I supposed to control myself?! *flails* SO ANYWAY, I've decided to pay it forward with a pre-Christmas sale of my own!

Insert shiny picture here


The graphic is so pretty. I wish I could say I made it. Sadly I have no such skills and have had to resort to piracy. :p

So yeah about this sale...
From now till the end of November 2014, all available items will be 25% off.

Some terms and conditions (please read ok! attention to detail is v. v. important in life):

1. Once available items are sold, they will revert to their original, non-discounted price. (I may not always be able to update their status on this blog immediately. So always enquire to see if someone beat you to it.)

2. You have to like the Dainty Little Trinkets facebook page to be eligible for this discount! (please let me know your FB username and in the offchance that I can't see that you've liked the page, I may ask you to provide a screenshot. :) Please don't "unlike" the page after, as that will make me sad)

3. This discount is not valid for items that are already on clearance / other discounts. The sale that has better value for the customer will take precedence! (e.g. if you check the clearance label, you will see RED text indicating the new clearance prices of the item. Obviously I cannot give you another 25% off this price lah... if I do, I would earn peanuts. (I'm already earning peanuts, heehee)).

So yes, that has been a very long and detailed (and overly cheong-hei) terms and conditions post. 

Any questions? Just email me at

Start shopping now and browse the available items ~* here *~

 In the meantime, I'll be doing some half-crazed online shopping of my own. :)

Lovebirds | Bold & Brassy Collection: Part 5

Hola amigos!

I am back from Penang-land after some pretty darn yummy feasting. Salted egg deep fried lotus root... how I love thee, let me count the ways. ♥__♥ Today I am tired (from all the sleeping that I did in the car, haha), so I shall keep this post short.

Today's post is the last in the Bold & Brassy collection, though it's not the last of the antique brass creations that you've seen from me. Here's Lovebirds, a choker-style necklace that is both dainty and simple, and rather adorable (at least I think so lah).
 A simple antique-brass necklace featuring two little lovebirds sitting on a tree branch. Here, I have oh-so-artfully arranged the necklace to look like the little birds are perching on a swing. Aren't they adorable?

 Fun fact: I am way too old to love Vampire Diaries. Fun fact 2: I adore Vampire Diaries (oh Damon, you and your smouldering blue eyes...). Fun fact 3: How cool is it that I've seen something super similar to this necklace on the neck of Caroline Forbes in one of the episodes?! Click here to see it on her pretty neck (as opposed to mine below, haha!)


Item Code & Name: 312 Lovebirds
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available
Materials: Birds on a Branch Link
Measurements: Approximately 40cm (including clasp), extender = 2.5cm
 
That's all for tonight, folks.
 
 
Night night.

Jade Butterflies | Bold & Brassy Collection: Part 4

This post is a scheduled post, as I am in Penang for the weekend!

Yet another one of my (many) cousins is tying the knot, and since all my extended family lives up north, up to the north we go! 一路向北, as Jay Chou would put it. Haha. Anyway, that is neither here nor there. I need to learn to be less verbose!

Here's the 4th installment of the Bold & Brassy collection - Jade Butterflies.

Antique brass butterfly links with a gradient of faux pearls in pale green, teal and moss-green. I am loving the shine on these uniquely-coloured faux pearls! I had previously bought these very butterfly links in silver, but supplies on that are running low. So here's the brass equivalent! :)



Item Code & Name: 311 Jade Butterflies
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Pale Green, Teal Green and Moss Green Faux Pearls, Antique Brass-Plated Butterfly Links

That's all for now, friends.
Hope you have a great weekend ahead!

To order, please contact me at

If you like pretty colour gradients, also check out some previous ombré creations here!

Mockingjay | Bold & Brassy Collection: Part 3

Fellow citizens of PANEM...

*cough*

Wrong post-apocalyptic country.

Also, pre-apocalypse, though let's face it - it's only a matter of time before the world implodes on all of us and we'll all have to battle it out Hunger Games-style. 

Wheeeee I am très excited about this post because it is an homage to one of my favourite book series, possibly second only to the awesomeness of Harry Potter. With the release of Mockingjay Part 1 just around the corner (next week, I can't hardly wait!!!), it is a timely time to be posting part 3 of the Bold & Brassy collection!

I've made some trinkets inspired by the Hunger Games series before, but this is the first time I have a charm that looks like it has come straight out of the movie series itself - the famous Mockingjay pin that Katniss wore in defiance of the Capitol, which later became one of the leading symbols of the resistance. Here's a bookmark I made with the Mockingjay charm:
 An antique brass bookmark, a fiery red crystal in homage to the Girl on Fire, and a mockingjay charm. What could be better than using a Mockingjay bookmark to bookmark your favourite sections as you go through a re-read of the series in preparation for the upcoming movies, amirite? :D
Item Code & Name: 310 Mockingjay
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available
Materials: Red Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Mockingjay Charm

If you are a fellow fan of the Hunger Games, check out other accessories inspired by the series here!

If you'd like to order, just drop me an email at

And I shall leave you with the super-awesome trailer of ze upcoming movie!



If we burn, you burn with us.

Birds Atwitter | Bold & Brassy Collection: Part 2

Second in the Bold & Brassy collection is a pair of earrings!

I've always loved using various bird-related beads and charms in my creations, which you can see some of here, here and here! :) So when I expanded my collection of beads and charms and pretty things (heehee) to include antique brass items, I of course had to buy at least one bird-related charm!

I really love this charm - it's cute, dainty and slightly whimsical - here's Birds Atwitter -

 Two adorable little bird charms (looking quite like the Twitter logo), with dangling faux pearls in a gradient of sweet pink, dusty pink and dusty purple - the ombré effect lasting from the last collection to this one!
Item Code & Name: 309 Birds Atwitter
Price: RM9.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Sweet Pink, Dusty Pink and Dusty Purple Faux Pearls, Antique Brass-Plated Bird Charm

That's all for tonight - hope you like this cute and quirky creation, :)

Here's how to order stuff - *clickety-click*


G'night!
