Interlinked - Customised

Way back when, I posted this pair of earrings by the name of Interlinked - fairly simple in design, with chinese knot links and crystal teardrops. :)

Melanie, who customised a bunch of necklaces that shall soon be featured on this blog, wanted this to be made into a simple and classy necklace. So here you have it - the necklace version of Interlinked -
 A chinese knot link attached to a burgundy chinese crystal teardrop for a pendant, with little heart links and purple round-faceted chinese crystals that fall at the clavicle.
 Chinese crystal teardrops make for good pendants.
 

Item Code & Name: 366 Interlinked (Customised)
Price: RM20.00
Status: [Sold], Available for Remakes
Materials: Purple Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Tiny Heart Links, Chinese Knot Link, Burgundy Chinese Crystal Teardrop

Interstellar

Interstellar

I have a confession - I have yet to watch the cinematographic masterpiece that is Interstellar. I've been told it's great, so I shall watch it one day! For the time being, I have made a simple pair of earrings with these new disco-ball like crystals that I have just bought, matched with Moon and Star charms. 

(Look, I'm totally mastering the art of short and succinct posting! ;) )

The moon, the stars, and some intergalactic strobe lights. These crystals differ from the typical round-faceted crystals featured in my creations - they have many many facets, all which glitter and shine in a manner resembling little disco balls.
Item Code & Name: 365 Interstellar
Price: RM7.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Disco Ball Crystals, Moon Charm, Star Charm

Here's how you order! :)

 
That's all for now, wishing all of you a great week ahead!

Family Keychains

Happy Chinese New Year to one and all!

I hope that your bellies are filled with yummy food and CNY cookies and snacks, and that your hearts are full of love and joy from spending time with family and friends!

Since these festivities are about family, I thought I'd share with you these 4 keychains that Tien Mie customised for her family some time back. They each have different charms to represent each family member, and one of them with charms she chose for herself. :)
From Left to Right - Mother Nature, Father Anchor, Brother Sailor, Sister Dear.

Explanations for the names 
These are my interpretations and could be completely different from what Tien Mie intended, of course.) Hehe. Mother Nature for her mum, as mums are the ones who tenderly and lovingly help us grow. Father Anchor for her dad, as they are the ones who ground us and hold us together. Brother Sailor as an encouragement to her brother to keep exploring, and keep moving unto greater things. And finally Sister Dear for herself... and the "dear" is a play on words for the deer charm... because I am punny and silly that way. :p

Item Code & Name: 357 Mother Nature
Price: RM12.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Hope Bead, Rose Charm, Tree Charm, Made With Love Charm

Item Code & Name: 358 Father Anchor
Price: RM12.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Joy Charm, Owl Charm, Anchor Charm, Made With Love Charm

Item Code & Name: 359 Brother Sailor
Price: RM12.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Inspire Charm, Leaf Charm, Sailboat Charm, Made With Love Charm

Item Code & Name: 360 Sister Dear
Price: RM13.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Hope Bead, Treble Clef Charm, Alphabet Charm, Deer Charm

I think it's the cutest idea to make matching keychains for all who live under the same house. Might just do it for my family too! :)

All orders / enquiries can be directed to

That's all for my rambling - wishing you a wonderful CNY season, and happy holidays!

恭喜 恭喜 恭喜你呀

Watercolour

Every now and then you experience lapses in creativity and cannot think of nice names to name your creations.

This is one of those times!

I recently acquired these pretty, translucent watercolour faux pearls and decided to make myself a pair of earrings with it. I wanted something simple and dainty, as is my usual modus operandi. :)

Here, oh-so-creatively named Watercolour, is my new favourite pair of earrings:

 Celtic Square Beads matched with the white faux pearls that have pretty splashes of pastel paint, which gives them a watercolour effect.
Item Code & Name: 364 Watercolour
Price: RM6.00
Status: Available for remakes 
Materials: Pastel Watercolour Faux Pearls, Celtic Square Beads

That's all for now :) If you like the look of these pretty pearls, you can always customise something to your fancy! 
Just email me at:


Good night, and to all those who are travelling, have a safe journey and wonderful holiday season!

If Music Be The Food Of Love - Customised

I was going to wish you Happy Valentine's Day, but then am only posting this on late Sunday night, and it's technically Monday already. Oh well, I'm gonna do it anyway -- Happy Valentine's Day, my dear readers! 

Hope you had a great day in or out with your special someone, and that the love you experienced yesterday is evident in your life every day and will last on through the ages. :) How's that for a cheesy greeting, eh? Can't help it, I spent it attending someone's wedding, and what could be more romantic than weddings, right? Hehe.

In celebration of that, this post features a couple's keychain set that my friend Tien Mie customised for Joseph and Jenna, who got married end of last year.
Music is a large part of their lives, hence the matching antique brass treble clef charms, and an encouragement to the young couple to Live, Laugh and Love. This contains their initials, and a Hope bead or Joy charm respectively. Named after the beautiful Shakespearean quote - If music be the food of love, play on.
Item Code & Name: 355 If Music Be The Food of Love (Hope)
Price: RM16.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes 
Materials: Hope Bead, Treble Clef Charm, Alphabet Charm, "Live Laugh Love" Charm
Item Code & Name: 356 If Music Be The Food of Love (Joy)
Price: RM15.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes 
Materials: Joy Charm, Treble Clef Charm, Alphabet Charm, "Live Laugh Love" Charm
Here are two other couple keychains that I made for my friends. *clickety click*

If you'd like to customise something for you and your special someone / your friends / your parents / your grandparents / your uncles and aunties (you get the idea, haha), just email me and we can discuss ideas!


That's it for now - give your loved ones a hug today! :)

Amethyst Medley

Sisters are doin' it for themselves!

*attempts to groove around like I got soul* 
I ain't got no RnB soul, unfortunately. Can't dance, can't groove to save my life.

Anywaaay, there was actually a point I was trying to make. Today's post features 3 bracelets that were made for 3 sisters! To be very specific, they were made for my 3 aunties, who are all strong admirable women worth looking up to. 

Once upon a time, about 2 months ago, my youngest aunty saw my mummy wear the first bracelet I ever made for her (click here!) and liked it quite a bit. At the urging of my mummy, and also because I recently acquired some lovely semi-precious Amethyst beads, I decided to make my 3 aunties matching bracelets! I quite like the similar yet slightly varied bracelets -
A medley of amethyst-themed bracelets, with silver and dark silver faux pearls, and faux pearls with different shades of purple. All fixed with a heart clasp, and capped off at the end with a Made with Love charm.

Item Code & Name: SET041 Amethyst Medley
Price: RM67.00 (3 bracelets) - items can be sold separately, please look below.
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Please see below.

 Soft lilac faux pearls mixed in with shades of silver, all paired with the lovely amethyst beads. This is my favourite.

Item Code & Name: 361 Amethyst Medley (Lilac)
Price: RM24.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Lilac, Silver and Dark Silver Faux Pearls, Amethyst Beads, Heart Clasp, Made with Love Charm
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain
 This is the dusty purple version of the bracelet, for a more elegant and refined look.

Item Code & Name: 362 Amethyst Medley (Dusty Purple)
Price: RM24.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Dusty Purple, Silver and Dark Silver Faux Pearls, Amethyst Beads, Heart Clasp, Made with Love Charm
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain

Burgundy faux pearls that add a striking dash of colour to the bracelet. This is the feistiest of the lot. 

Item Code & Name: 363 Amethyst Medley (Burgundy)
Price: RM24.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Burgundy, Silver and Dark Silver Faux Pearls, Amethyst Beads, Heart Clasp, Made with Love Charm
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain

So, whether you'd like to purchase a set of 3 for you and your sisters / you and your sisters from another mother / just something for yourself, go to town! There's something for everyone! :)



Muchos gracias, and good night!

Nightingale Anklet - Customised

Konbanwa~~~

I am back from the land of the rising sun (and freezing cold), and I am missing Japan something fierce. The food, oh the food, I will think about you all the days of my life. *___* I saw some beads and crystals when I was there too, but they were too expensive so I gave them a miss. Had to save so I could splurge on food, food, and more food!

Anyway, enough about Japan. 

Here's something I customised for Winnie, who requested that this Nightingale bracelet be made into an anklet! So it's basically an extended version of the bracelet, lengthened to fit one's ankle. I still think this is one of my favourite designs that I have ever made because it is so pretty in its simplicity. :)
 A swallow link flanked by dainty silver faux pearls and clover links, with a Sing charm at the end.
 This measures at about 20cm with a 3cm extender chain, so I'm guessing Winnie has really small ankles. Here's a shot of the anklet on my rather stumpy leg, featuring my lovely parquet floor. Haha. 


Item Code & Name: 354 Nightingale (Anklet)
Price: RM16.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver Faux Pearls, Clover Links, Silver-Clear Chinese Crystal Teardrop, Swallow Link, Sing Charm
Measurements: Approximately 20cm (including clasp) + 3cm extender chain

That's all for now, folks!

If you like this design, check out two other incarnations of it here (with Swarovski Hearts!) and here (in red!).

As always, orders can be made at
