Magenta Mine

In a bit of a melancholy mood tonight, so indulge me a little, dear readers.

And I shall preface this with a little "yes, yes, I know that this is an accessories business and not an outlet for the silly author's feelings"... so I shall keep it short. You ever feel just a little bit lost, a bit unmoored in the vast ocean that is life? Yeah... I get struck with that feeling sometimes, and now is one of those times.

So I decided to wallow a little by listening to one of the most bittersweet and wistful Chinese oldies that I know. I had to share it, coz sharing is caring, ya know? Gosh, cry me a river and let me drown in those tears.


Okay, now that I've gotten those feelings out of the way, we're onto the actual point of this post.

Here's a pair of earrings I made for myself, coz today is apparently a me day:

 Magenta flower-painted ceramic beads, with magenta faux pearls. Made to match one of my Bangkok acquisitions. Named Magenta Mine because they're magenta... and they're mine. I'm oozing creativity, I know.
Item Code & Name: 387 Magenta Mine
Price: RM11.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Magenta Flower Ceramic Beads, Magenta Faux Pearls

Sorry for the rather maudlin post.
I shall go wallow in more sad songs now. :p

晚安~

Hope Springs

So... my mummy somehow managed to lose the handbag charm that I made for her (here!) (or someone stole it off her handbag, le gasp!), so I made her a new one.

This one features the same Live Love Laugh charm, and some new stones that I found in Bangkok that I am super in love with. Here's Hope Springs:
 Charms and beads that remind me of my mum the most - Hope, an encouragement to always Live well, Laugh often and Love always. Made with love, and featuring my newest Bangkok find - these lovely semi-precious stones that I think are Rain Flower Stones (雨花石). I can't be very sure, since these weren't labelled in the tiny Chatuchak stall that I found them in... but aren't they pretty? Adore the pinkish green blend, and the stones are cool to the touch. 
Item Code & Name: 384 Hope Springs
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Rain Flower Stones, Hope Bead, Made With Love Charm, Live Love Laugh Charm

This is dedicated to all the mummies out there. :)

Opalline

Hi folks!

I'm excited about this post as it's the first to feature beads from Bangkok! So after braving the scorching and sweltering and crawl-out-of-your-skin and douse-yourself-in-icecubes heat of Chatuchak, I found the section and lanes that sold beads! Row after row of semi-precious stones and crystals and beads. *___* Being the fine example of self-control that I am, I limited myself to a few choice purchases. 

Here's the first, named opalline, as it features chinese crystal doughnuts in pretty opal shades. 

 I've not been able to find these shades here -- rose opal and lavender opal chinese crystal doughnuts, coupled with my favourite clover links and cutesy rose charms. Absolutely adoreee the cloudy opal shades of these crystals.
Item Code & Name: 383 Opalline
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Rose Opal / Lavender Opal Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Clover Links, Rose Charms

If you like these lovely frosted shades, order a remake of this or customise something with them. 
All you gotta do is email me at


Now excuse me while I go stare at my beads for a while. :D Adieu!

Garden Blossoms - Customised

 Happy Thursday!

Sometimes, my customers come up with the best ideas. :) When my well of ideas runs dry, they manage to dream up ideas that look much prettier than what I could've envisioned. :D Crowd-sourcing, yo!

Melanie, who is a necklace enthusiast, really liked the gorgeous magenta flower ceramic bead from this necklace. She wanted it combined with faux pearls, and after a few revisions, we incorporated the lovely Believe ring and this is the result!

Faux pearls in an almost-ombre sequence of sweet pink, dusty pink and maroon, and a ceramic bead with magenta blossoms dangling from a Believe ring.


The antique brass links and chain complement the pink/purple/red tones of this necklace.

 
Item Code & Name: 381 Garden Blossoms
Price: RM22.00
Status: [Sold], Available for Remakes
Materials: Sweet Pink, Dusty Pink & Maroon Faux Pearls, Believe Ring, Magenta-Flower Ceramic Bead
Measurements: Approximately 43.5cm (including clasp), extender = 5cm

If you'd like to customise something, just email me at

​Guten Nacht!

Vintage Summer - Customised

Hellooooo!

I am back from Bangkok and have shopped up a storm and maaaaan do I miss it. :D Bought some beads too, which will soon be featured in this little blog of mine! But first - here's a little bracelet that Kelsey customised. It's based on this Summer Daze necklace.

Kelsey liked the flower and the pale yellow flower-print pearls, but wanted to replace the gold faux pearls with something a little lighter in colour, something a little more vintage. And thus, Vintage Summer was born:
Pale yellow flower print and pale green faux pearls form the chain of the bracelet, connected with vintage-looking ocean wave links, and an off-white flower cabochon danging from a flower filigree link.
Alas, I've run out of this off-white sunflower cabochon, so remakes will have to feature other flowers.
Item Code & Name: 380 Vintage Summer
Price: RM18.00
Status: [Sold], Available for different remake (the flower cabochon has to be substituted)
Materials: Pale Green and Pale Yellow Watercolour-Print Faux Pearls, Ocean Wave Link, Off-White Sunflower Cabochon, Flower-Shaped Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp) 
 
 That's all for now. :)

Spotlight - Bookmarks

This is a scheduled post, as I am currently traipsing around Bangkok, hopefully shopping till I drop and eating till I can't anymore. :D 

This post will focus on bookmarks that I've made in the past - ones that I particularly love. Bookmarks make great presents for most people - they're versatile, don't require that much tailoring to personal taste, and serve a great purpose (unless the person in question doesn't read books, haha).

Here are some bookmarks (click on the names of each to go to their original posts!)
 I Believe (RM22)
 Olive Grove (RM13)
 Nymphaea (RM23)

That's all for now - will be back soon!

Porcelain - Customised

Helloooo!

I'm going off on a mini-vacation from tomorrow till Sunday, so gotta rush! This will be a short post. :)

When Jaycee customised the mushroom and macaron handbag charms, she also wanted to put her own spin to this Porcelain bracelet. Here's the customised version:
 Off-white clay beads handpainted with swirls and zigzag patterns, in porcelain blue and jet black ink, and a reminder to be courageous and have hope.
 Gotta love the painstakingly hand-painted swirls and zigzag patterns in these Lun Bawang beads.


Item Code & Name: 378 Porcelain (Customised)
Price: RM30.00
Status: [Sold], Not Available
Materials: Blue Swirl, Black Swirl and Blue Zigzag Lun Bawang Beads, Clear Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Courage Bead, Heart Bead, Toggle Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 16.5cm (including clasp)

I've run out of the Black Swirl beads, but if you wish for a remake without those beads, we can work something out.


I'm travelling, so responses may not be as frequent, yeah? :)
That's all for now, be back early next week!
