Noelle

Sunday mornin'
Rain is fallin'
I'm still holidayin'
So this is a scheduled post. :)
(Also it's Sunday evening and it may not be raining, but I claim artistic license. Or gratuitous lyric-stealing license.

Sometime last year, I posted the Hearts and Lace collection, which included this pair of earrings that I like quite a bit. Here are some swarovski bicone colour variations!

Violet, light sapphire (the original) and aquamarine.
They're also available in rose, blue zircon and carribean blue opal. :)

Fun fact: my pictures are normally photoshopped to attain a fully white background, but it is sometimes über difficult to do so when you are featuring items with white in them. White lace is a nightmare. So here you have a semi-gray background, to give you a behind-the-scenes look of what we go through from the creation of the trinket, to the photo-taking, to the final presentation (coupled by nonsensical rambling). All in a day's work!

Item Code & Name: 107 Noelle
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver-Clear Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Lace Flowers, Heart Links, Swarovski Bicones

For The Little One

This day, Saturday 20 December, is the day my little brother officially graduates with Honours and is released into the scary postgraduate world. I am currently away and have most likely just spent my Saturday morning being bored to tears by the graduation ceremony in some majestic-looking hall somewhere in Melbourne. With my luck, it will be 38 degrees like it was during his graduation last year. Oh the sweltering heat and the gaping hole in the ozone layer above Australia! *pengsan*

Anyway, since it is the little one's graduation date and all, this post is dedicated to him. (Also, he's at least a head taller than everyone else in my family, so he's not little at all. But once a little bro, always a little bro - I'm sure some of you can relate.)

My brother is as big of a Harry Potter fan as I am, so this is a plain and simple Deathly Hallows keychain to accompany him through his many more years away from home.
Unfortunately, this ain't available because I don't actually have any antique brass keychains available (I recycled this one from an existing trinket I had lying around). But if you're a fan of all things Harry Potter, never fear! Check out more stuff here!

Little one, I'll leave you with this quote from the indomitable, quirky and ever-wise Dumbledore:
'Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.'

Remember this as you face each challenge that comes your way.

I'm very proud of you.
 
Much love,

Spotlight - Asymmetry

- zis is a scheduled post as yours truly is still on holiday -


Now you must be wondering - why the blazes is there a picture of some lady with a cool hairstyle on a site that is supposed to be about handmade trinkets? To be fair, if you are the sort to pay attention to titles, you would've rightly deduced that this post is about asymmetry and the reason why that picture is here is because of her gorgeously stylish asymmetrical hairstyle.

I am in general a fan of logic and order and symmetry, though the occasional asymmetry does spice things up a little. So here is my little ode to asymmetry, as you can see in the pictures below. 

 Daenerys & Drogo (RM8) - but currently on sale!

 

 
 Cyan Blooms (RM9)

Nebula (RM34)

So if you like asymmetrical things, check out the asymmetrical tag for more goodies!

(replies may be slow as I am in the land down under)

 G'night!

Spotlight - Colourful Clay

You know the drill -
I am still on vacation and this is a scheduled post!

Today's spotlight post will feature all things made from polymer clay!
First, have a pretty colourful picture:


Isn't it amazing, the kinds of things humans can craft from clay? There is truly no limit to creativity (well, there's a limit to mine, but not some other creative souls). Aside from colourful clay jars and all sorts of beautiful decorative items, polymer clay has been used by all sorts of arty farty people to create gorgeous little charms and beads. 

Over the course of this year, I've purchased quite a lot of beautiful clay charms and beads, so here are some accessories featuring them (click on the names to go to the original posts for more pictures)!
 I Believe (RM22)
 Porcelain (RM20)
 Lil' Shroom (RM12)

How adorable are those mushrooms above, yeah?

So go forth and browse and email me at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com to purchase stuff!

I'm still on vacation, so email responses may take a few days, so please bear with me yeah.

Estella - Customised

Still on vacation!

As you are reading this, I am probably walking along the crater of a long-dormant volcano in Mount Gambier. Cool, huh? Super cool! One of the key tourist attractions of the Mount is the Blue Lake, which is this gorgeous, brilliant blue. 

Which brings me to the point of this vacation post. 

Way back when, I posted this black lace bracelet, accompanied by the Silver Night Swarovski Heart - a classy, stunning affair. Here's something customised for Loretta - the same black lace, with a change in Swarovski Heart - a striking Bermuda Blue.
A black lace band, followed by a jet black chinese crystal doughnut and the most beautiful of all Swarovski hearts (in my humble opinion). 

Item Code & Name: 221 Estella (Customised - Bermuda Blue)
Price: RM18.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Black Lace, Jet-Black Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Bermuda Blue AB Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 16cm (including clasp) (Remakes can be adjusted to the customer's wrist length)

Click on this link to see more pictures of the original bracelet!
If you'd like Swarovski hearts of a different colour, just email me to find out more!


Since I'm on vacation, my replies may come late yeah.

Thank you and good night!

You don't bring me flowers
You don't sing my love songs...

Haha, okay. This is not that kinda post. We are not about to be jiwang here. Today's scheduled post is about all things flowery and beautiful! Firstly, feast your eyes on this gorgeous photo:


Flowers are truly a magnificent creation of God - so striking, so colourful, so exquisitely intricate. Here are some creations that feature pretty flower cabochons and beads!

Spotlight - Inspired by Books and Movies

Hi hello from the land down under!

Why yes, my brother is graduating yet again, and I am in Melbourne yet again, like the awesomely supportive sister that I am. :) What this means is that I will be missing for a while from the Internet, and in my absence, I have scheduled a bunch of posts so you won't miss me too much. Heehee.

The first of these vacation posts will shine a spotlight on one of my pet-topics - the books and movies that I love! The three book/movie series that I love most have a lot in common - they are all epic stories of the struggle of good against evil, they are set in fantasy lands far away from reality, they feature flawed, believable protagonists that you love and root for and cry with, and all have spanned multiple books and movies and inspired legions of fans.
I'm talking about Harry Potter, the Hunger Games and the Lord of the Rings, of course. Such epic sagas of love, honour, courage and hope. I could go on for days, but I shall not bore you with all my rambling. Instead, I'll feature some pieces that have been inspired by these wonderful works of fiction. 

(The names of each trinket link to the original posts!)
 Patronus (RM18)
 Mockingjay (RM15)
 Tree of Gondor (RM20)

There are more accessories and trinkets inspired by these lovely franchises, which you can check out here:

Email me at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com if you'd like to order something!
My replies may be slow as I'm on vacay yeah, sorry!

Vintage Rose

One day to my holiday!
Excited I am.

I'll be on vacation from 10 Dec - 25 Dec, so replies may be few and far between. 

Today's post features one of the favourite things that I have made myself. Keeping with this little blogshop's name - the earrings are dainty and simple, and I am a firm believer of beauty in simplicity. :)

Here's Vintage Rose - 

Vintage pink rose cabochons on intricate antique-brass filigrees, followed by dusty pink faux pearls. I'm very much in love with the vintage look of this pair of earrings - the vintage pink shade of the roses blending in so well with the antique brass, and the dusty pink sheen of the faux pearls.



Item Code & Name: 323 Vintage Rose
Price: RM11.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Vintage Pink Rose Cabochons, Antique Brass Flower Filigrees, Dusty Pink Faux Pearls

 If you like antique brass trinkets, check out more here!

This pair of earrings can only be remade once, because I only have 1 set of vintage pink roses left! So email me to grab it if you like it! (Replies may be slow if I am travelling and without internet).


 Hasta la vista!

Strawberry Latte

Hope everyone has had a nice and restful Sunday. :)

Today's post showcases the companion piece to the Suede Braids bracelet that I made for mummy. While mummy's is composed of sombre dark gray and dark purple suede with a dash of bright carolina blue, with silver findings, this one is in sweet and warm colours, with antique brass findings. 

I hereby dub it Strawberry Latte, for reasons which are obvious and shall be elaborated on in glorious long-winded detail.
 Braided suede in shades of sugary pink, beige and brown, resembling that of a strawberry-flavoured latte (Oh Starbucks, can you work on this drink please? Especially to make up for the fact that you are no longer serving my precious Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino). I am quite in love with this combination of colours, especially when paired with antique brass findings.
 At the end of the braided bracelet is an adorable little wing charm. It's one of the things I just had to buy when I started buying antique brass charms.
Item Code & Name: 322 Strawberry Latte
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Pink, Beige and Brown Suede, Wing Charm
Measurements: Approximately 16cm (including clasp)

Remakes are of course adjustable to your own wrist size. This one is freakishly small because my wrists are freakishly small. :)

If you like the sugary shade of pink featured in this bracelet, check out Fairy Floss Christmas too!

Reminder that I'm going on vacay soon! (Can't hardly wait). Read more here.

If you like stuff with wings, check out some silver winged trinkets here, here and here!

That's all for tonight.
Thanks for reading, folks.

Suede Braids

Hello, if you are reading this on Saturday (during the day), chances are I'm working. :(
*sad*

Anyway, I've scheduled this post beforehand as I'll have no time to write one on Saturday itself.

It's been a while since mummy featured on this blog, so here's a post about something I made for mummy! So a while back, I bought a bunch of faux suede, with which I've had a lot of fun braiding. 

With the new colours, I've made this fairy-floss-coloured Christmas-themed bracelet (*click here*). I've since made a suede braided bracelet for meself, and a somewhat matching one for me mum! Today's post features the one made for mummy --
 Dark gray, carolina blue and purple suede braided in a French braid, capped off at the end with an "inspire" charm.
 This shows a clearer view of the colours and the braid - mummy wanted something in darker colours so that's what she gets!
Item Code & Name: 321 Suede Braids
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Carolina Blue, Dark Purple and Dark Gray Suede, Inspire Charm
Measurements: Approximately 16.5cm (including clasp)

This is made for dainty hands as the mummy has a skinny wrist. Let me know if you want something similar at a different length, or with an extender chain! If you like suede, check out more stuff here!

Here's how you order.


Thank you and happy weekend!
