Cupid Strikes

Hello!

Sorry I've been missing in action. I wanted to post yesterday, but was so tired I fell asleep at 9pm. (If that's not a sign of ageing, I don't know what is!). It's been a busy, tiring couple of workdays, so yay TGIF!

Before I go off and enjoy the start of my weekend, here's a pretty necklace customised by Melanie. She liked the circle links and arrow links from the Noir bracelet, and after a few revisions to it, we arrived at this design in sweet rosaline and lilac tones.
A slightly asymmetrical necklace with rosaline faux pearls and chinese crystal doughnuts accompanying circle and arrow links on each side, with a lilac rose cabochon pendant and twin dangling chains.

 Named Cupid Strikes for the little arrow heart links and circle links (almost like Cupid's target). This is possibly one of Dainty Little Trinkets' sweetest creations. :)


Item Code & Name: 374 Cupid Strikes
Price: RM25.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Rosaline Faux Pearls, Rosaline Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Circle Links, Arrow Heart Links, A Lilac Rose Cabochon on a Flower Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 44.5cm (including clasp), extender = 4cm

If you'd like to customise something, all you have to do is email me at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com to discuss ideas!

Happy weekend, my dear readers! Go revel in it!

Sunday Stylefile #11

Brevity is the soul of wit.

With that quote in mind, I shall aim to be brief. Brief as brief can be!

This month's Sunday Stylefile features a pretty silver trinket, one inspired by the Harry Potter universe - the Patronus necklace -
To match this silver necklace, I've selected 3 beautiful white and black dresses - specifically, white dresses with black floral prints. They're all gorgeous, as you can see below:

On ze left, dress up for a garden party in this delicately beuatiful Signature Rose Dress from Twenty3.
In ze middle, look young, fun and flirty in this Black Rose-Patterned White Dress from Hutz Fashion.
On ze right, be every inch of an elegant and feminine aristocrat in this Floral Sketch Dress from Dressabelle.

They're so pretty I want them alllllll. ❤__❤

 *Disclaimer* I own not the images above, they are from the sites that I have credited. 
Click on the links to go buy them pretty clothes. :)

 The Patronus necklace can be purchased at 10% off from now till the next Sunday Stylefile post. Originally RM18, it''ll now cost RM16. Check out more pictures of the necklace over here. :)


Wishing you a good week ahead. Go forth and carpe diem!

Bleeding Love

You cut me open and I
keep bleeding
keep keep bleeding love

Anyone know the song above? It's by Leona Lewis, and kind of morbidly romantic. Or romantically morbid. Or just plain morbid. Haha. In retrospect, it's kinda odd that I named an accessory after this song, especially when the trinket in question is not that morbid after all. Oh well...

Here's a pair of earrings that I made for meself - 

 Blood red chinese crystal doughnuts, metallic silver round-faceted chinese crystals and silver heart links.
Item Code & Name: 371 Bleeding Love
Price: RM7.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Metallic Silver Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Heart Links
 
Come to think of it, it's been quite a while since I last featured a pair of earrings.
Check out more here!
 
 Here's how you order!
 

And I shall leave you with the stunning vocal stylings of Leona Lewis... adieu~

Vintage Spring

Good evening, ladyfolk. 

I am suffering from Sunday Night Blues and also a pounding headache, so this post shall be as short as succinct as I can be (i.e. short for me, but still too cheonghei for the regular person) :p

Here's a bookmark that reminds me of springtime...  the kind of spring that you daydream about, a half-faded memory, a certain sense of nostalgia, wistful feelings for a time gone by...
 An antique brass bookmark with flower engravings, accompanied by a clover link, a butterfly link, rosaline and dusty pink faux pearls, and a beautiful rose key charm. I used to have a silver version of this bookmark, which is unfortunately not available anymore. This antique brass version is equally (if not more) beautiful, though. :)
Item Code & Name: 372 Vintage Spring
Price: RM18.00
Status: Available
Materials: Rosaline & Dusty Pink Faux Pearls, Clover Link, Butterfly Link, Rose Key Charm

If you like bookmarks, check out somemore here.
Looks like it's been a week of featuring antique brass trinkets. Click here for more!


Good night, fair folk. 
Don't let the bed bugs bite.

Melody

The hills are alive, with the sound of music... ♩ ♫ 

Ah, music. What would we do without it?​ I've been a fan of music and singing (at the top of my lungs, in showers and in cars, everywhere, all the time) since a very young age. Music is such a big part of how we navigate the world and express emotions and relate to one another.

One other person who appreciates music as much as I do, or probably more so, is Shyuan. This is a little bookmark I made for her. :)
 An antique brass bookmark with rich red chinese crystal doughnuts, a Believe ring and a treble clef charm.
Item Code & Name: 370 Melody
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Believe Ring, Treble Clef Charm

Check out more bookmarks here!


TGIF y'all. Go put on some music and dance into the night!

For Ivy

This is a belated birthday shoutout to Ivy, who celebrated her birthday early this month. :)

Ivy is getting married soon as well, so this birthday gift was made for her with one of the most important events in her life (or more like a journey, since it is a neverending one, hehe) in mind. Love is a many splendoured thing, it is patient, it is kind... all you need is love, love is all you need (this is me quoting all the songs and bible verses that immediately come to mind). 

So this is a birthday gift to Ivy - wishing her lots of love, and joy, and adventures in this momentous year!
An asymmetrical necklace, because Ivy is a fan of the quirky and asymmetrical, with an adjustable Swarovski Heart pendant, adjusted by moving the chain up and down the Believe ring at the centre. 

 A close up of the ever-stunning Swarovski heart in rich red, which is accompanied by a clover link and a deep red chinese crystal doughnut. The Believe ring is one of my more recent finds, and I love it quite a bit. :)

 
Item Code & Name: 379 Chérie
Price: RM21.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Believe Ring, Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Clover Link, Red Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 44cm (including clasp), drop = 4cm (length adjustable to whatever you want it to be!)

This necklace is made in the same vein as the Eternal Flame, Eternal Winter and Royale necklaces, so check them out by clicking on them names!

All orders/enquiries can be sent to

That's all for now...
AI VEE WHY if you're reading this... love you long time! :p <3

Summer Daze - Customised

Goodbye weekend and hello Monday.

If I had the means, I would spend my days lazing about some pristine, isolated beach, with only the sun and sand and sea to accompany me. Once upon a time, on one fine Australian summer day, I had just completed my thesis and essentially finished my degree, so life was good and carefree, and I did just that - 3 wonderful hours of Australian sun on the beach.

You could call it Summer Daze - that feeling of being so sun-kissed and warm that you're all mellow and warm and slightly dazed. (Of course, I subsequently got the world's worst sunburn and walked around looking like a lobster for a whole 2 weeks. But that's a grandma story from a bygone era.)

I've named this creation, another necklace customised for Melanie, Summer Daze, as the pale yellow flower-print and gold pearls remind me of a lazy, hazy summer day. :) 
 A chain of alternating faux pearls in shiny gold and pale yellow flower-print, interspersed with clover and flower links, with a pale off-white sunflower as a pendant.

 The off-white sunflower cabochon is glued to a pretty flower filigree, giving the necklace a sweet and feminine touch.


Item Code & Name: 369 Summer Daze
Price: RM25.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Gold and Pale Yellow Watercolour-Print Faux Pearls, Clover Links, Flower Link, Off-White Sunflower Cabochon, Flower-Shaped Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 44cm (including clasp) + 4cm extender chain

This necklace is loosely-based on this bracelet and this bracelet. :)

You can customise stuff for yourself too! Check out the customised section here.

Eternal Winter - Customised

TGIF!

Wishing y'all a good weekend ahead.
I have to work on both Saturday and Sunday, so it's not exactly funtimes for me... but... you know, gotta make a living somehow. :p The accessory-making alone cannot feed and clothe me!

One of my favourite things that I have ever made is the Eternal Flame necklace (click here for the red version, or the blue / silver versions). It's simple, quirky and elegant. I've been itching to make something similar for quite a while now, and the right opportunity came along when Melanie requested an asymmetrical necklace using a snowflake instead of the infinity link.

Here's Eternal Winter -
 A snowflake charm linked to a midnight blue faux pearl, a clover link and a stunning Bermuda Blue Swarovski Heart.

 Blue and silver always makes for such a pretty combination, especially when it involves a stunningly gorgeous Bermuda Blue Swarovski Heart. The length of the pendant can be adjusted by moving the chain up and down the snowflake charm.


Item Code & Name: 368 Eternal Winter
Price: RM22.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Midnight Blue Faux Pearl, Clover Link, Snowflake Charm, Bermuda Blue AB Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 44cm (including clasp), drop = 5.5cm (length adjustable to whatever you want it to be!)

All orders can be made at

Here's some info on how you can make orders :)

Good night, folks. Don't let the bed bugs bite!
