Reinventions

One of my favourite things to do is reinvent old knick-knacks.

When my friend Jah wanted to recycle an old chunky bracelet, I thought it'd be cool to take it apart and make earrings out of them! Voila - one bracelet now has become two pairs of earrings. :)

Wirework using miyuki beads in shades of gold and brown - whoever made these initial circular and square bits is definitely far more skilled than I am. :) They make two pretty pairs of funky earrings,  no? :D

Status: Not Available
Materials: An old bracelet :D

Happy Saturday, my friends!

Sorry for the lack of new content this week. There's some new stuff coming up this week! :)
In the meantime, check out the clearance sale!

Hummingbird

So, the last post was about this beautiful Sterling Silver double infinity link that I purchased from a cool silversmith from the U.S. When I was perusing this person's exquisite creations, I couldn't resist buying something for myself too!

Here's an adorable little hummingbird pendant, which I've paired with a tiny aquamarine Swarovski bicone.

Status: Not Available
Materials: Hummingbird Charm, Aquamarine Swarovski Bicone

If only shipping from the U.S weren't so expensive!

Looks like this has been a week of posting unavailble things, but if you'd like to stay and browse some items, just check out the Available or Available for Remakes sections!

Double Infinity

Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.

Guess the quote. :)

In one of the tv shows that I used to love and watch regularly - Revenge - a father asks his daughter: "Do you know how much I love you? Infinity times infinity." Cheesy though it may be, the idea of loving someone so much that infinity isn't enough, that your love is bigger than an infinity, is a beautiful one. 

I made a necklace for my friend using a sterling silver double-infinity charm imported all the way from some super cool artisan in the U.S. It's not available for remakes, but I thought I'd share it anyway, coz the charm is exquisitely beautiful.
Infinity times Infinity - I love the way the two infinity symbols intertwine with each other.

Status: Not Available
Materials: Double Infinity Charm

Happy birthday my friend.
May you find one who loves you infinitely, always.

Ombré | La Perla Collection: Part 5

Ombré
- colours or tones that shade into each other; a gradient of colours.

Ombré has been all the rage lately in fashion. I've definitely coveted those gorgeous ombré hairstyles we see so much everywhere, and clothing with colour gradients are just so very pretty. Since the hairstyles are super expensive to get and maintain, I've gone for the next best thing - making "ombré" earrings!

Here's the last part of the La Perla collection, featuring faux pearls in a colour gradient -

 Faux pearls in a gradient of dusty pink - soft lilac - dusty purple - burgundy.
Item Code & Name: 280 Ombré
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available
Materials: Dusty Pink, Soft Lilac, Dusty Purple, Burgundy Faux Pearls

Gotta love them colour gradients.
I think the soft sheen of the faux pearls and the combination of the gradient of colours are very pretty indeed, making them my favourite of this collection.

Thus ends another collection!

See you in the coming week for more new creations!

Black & Gold | La Perla Collection: Part 4

 Soft gold faux pearls interspersed with black faux pearls with gold swirls on them, with a round double twisted ring at the centre.
 Encased within the round double twisted ring is a smaller black pearl, this one with gold and silver swirls.

Price: RM15.00
Status: Available
Materials: Black Faux Pearls with Gold Swirls, Soft Gold Faux Pearls, Round Double Twisted Ring, Toggle Clasp

Footprints | La Perla Collection: Part 2

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."

- Mary Stevenson

This poem was one that touched me a lot when I first came to know God. Hope it has touched you too. :)

Part 2 of the La Perla Collection features a footprint charm that has never featured in any Dainty Little Trinket to this date. :) I've been wanting to make something with this charm for sometime now. With no further ado - here it is:
 Alternating rosaline and pale blue pearls, a celtic knot link to represent the bonds of family and friends, a footprint charm, and two words of encouragement - hope. courage.
 The rosaline and pale blue pearls are also typically colours used to represent new born baby girls and baby boys, with the little footprint charms looking like little baby toes. This would make quite a suitable gift for new mothers - to give hope, to give courage.
Item Code & Name: 277 Footprints
Price: RM18.00
Status: Available
Materials: Rosaline and Pale Blue Faux Pearls, Celtic Knot Link, Footprint Charm, Hope Bead, Courage Bead
Measurements: Approximately 17cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain

Find out how to order here.


Whatever you are going through, always know that Someone is watching over you, and that He will carry you through.

Rainbow Promotion with I Can't Sew - Part 2

Monday blues.

There's nothing like coming home from a traffic jam of epic proportions caused by a thunderstorm of epic proportions to find that your kitchen was invaded by intelligent (EVIL!) monkeys who managed to eat all your bananas, open your fridge, break half a dozen eggs, and take a dump as a "thank you", leaving your entire kitchen floor a bloody mess.

Hope your Monday is better than mine. :p

Anyway, here's our second collaboration with I Can't Sew for their Rainbow Proportion - a promo package in shades of blue (Monday blues!) and black (as black as my anger for those creatures!)
 A gorgeous work dress with cobalt blue peplum accents, matched with the midnight blue and black shades of the Dark Night bracelet and earring set.

Priced normally at RM86, this deal is available for only RM50! Again, super worth it, but only 1 package exists and it expires on 15 August, so go get it before time runs out!

Check out the promo package on I Can't Sew's webpage here ♥
Check out more pics and details of The Dark Night bracelet and earring set here ♥

May your Tuesday be better than your Monday!
G'night.

Midsummer Night's Dream | La Perla Collection: Part 1

"Are you sure
That we are awake? It seems to me
That yet we sleep, we dream."
- Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Part 1 of the La Perla Collection features a bracelet that attempts to recreate the fantasy and the ethereal aspect one of Shakespeare's classics. Imagine a dream in the middle of a warm summer night -
 Midnight blue pearls to represent a midsummer night, burgundy pearls to represent one's dream-like, surreal state of mind, accompanied by moon and star charms.
 Two of the midnight blue pearls at the midway point of each side are slightly larger - reflecting the different sizes of constellations in the night sky. I wouldn't have thought that this colour combination would work until I combined them - I like the rich and ethereal quality that the colours evoke.


Item Code & Name: 276 Midsummer Night's Dream
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available
Materials: Burgundy and Midnight Blue Faux Pearls, Moon Charm, Star Charm, Toggle Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 18cm (including clasp)

All orders and enquiries can be made to

Tonight~ may you have a fantastical adventure in your personal little midsummer night's dream.
