For Anujah

Hurrah, it's the end of the year!

It also happens to be the birthday of my colleague and friend Anujah, who is, I think, frolicking along the pristine beaches of Batu Ferringhi at the moment. :D

Here's the bracelet and earring set I made for her -- it is in deep purple and rich burgundy tones, as she is a fan of rich, regal colours, and also quite fond of wine (or anything with alcohol ahaha). 
Crystals and pearls in various shades of purple, burgundy and black - Love in a Vineyard.

 A plain chain, a snowflake pendant, and twin dangling chains of burgundy crystal teardrops.

Pardon the weird angle of this shot.

Yuki no Hana - Customised

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaack!
(Australia was awesome, thanks for asking. :p I came back with tons of chocolates and biscuits, and unevenly sun-burnt skin. Oh ozone layer, why do you forsake the land down under? Summer in Melbourne is weird, I tell ya. One day it's 37 freaking degrees, the next it's a freezing 15 degrees. Madness.)

Hope all of you had a lovely Christmas. 

It's befitting that I post some Christmas-themed trinkets the day after Christmas, yeah? Here is the previously posted Yuki no Hana set, now in shades of rich red and sparkling silver. This was customised for Kelsey. :)

Since we're on the topic of snowflakes and snow, has everyone watched Frozen yet? I looove the movie and Elsa's powers are way beyond cool (pun intended, hehe). Everybody watch this sequence, powerfully performed by the illustrious Idina Menzel:

Let the storm rage on...
The cold never bothered me anyway.

Nightingale (Pendant)

[Scheduled Post]

As you are reading this, I am nearing the end of my holiday. *wails* I am probably on the flight back, napping in an uncomfortable Air Asia seat and drooling on my mummy's shoulder. Nice mental image there, huh? :p

Here's a very simple pendant I've made for myself, firstly because I adore this Nightingale pendant that has featured in my previous creations, and secondly because this particular pendant (as seen in the photo) had a few imperfections (one of the edges is slightly chipped), so I didn't want to sell it to a customer. It still looks quite ok, so I have made it mine! *moohahaha*

Simplicity - a sweet ribbon link connected to the intricate nightingale pendant. Chain is my own.

Item Code & Name: 131 Nightingale (Pendant Only)
Price: RM10.00 
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Ribbon Link, Nightingale Pendant

As always, I can be reached at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com

Spotlight - Preciosa Fire-Polished Stones

Myyyy preciousssssssssssssssssss.

These two words are ingrained in the collective consciousness of this generation - infamous words by the all too memorable Gollum. His all-consuming obsession with the Ring has led to many spoofs and jokes.

Sometimes I think I have an inkling of how Gollum felt.
Just a tiny tiny inkling, when I stare at all my precious (myyyyyyy precioussssssssssssss) beads and feel like hoarding them until my friends stage an intervention or someone makes a Reality TV episode featuring me (have you seen Hoarders? zomg). Oh how precious and lovely and beautiful are all my crystals and beads and charms!

 Czech Preciosa fire-polished stones are some of my favourites in my precious (myyyyyyy precioussssssssssssss) bead collection. They are of lovely quality, have precisely-cut facets, and a glorious shine to them. Feast your eyes upon these precious Preciosa crystals in all their glittery glory:

(ノ◕‿◕ )ノ*: ・゚✧

Here are some of the designs I've made featuring Preciosa crystals (name of accessory links to the original post!):
 Angels on Earth (RM21)
 Under the Sea (Set: RM25)

 Hoot! (RM8)

 Blue Frost (RM12)

Wanna make Preciosa beads part of your precious collection?

Spotlight - Ruby Red

Ahhh, red. 
The colour of fire, of passion, of love, of burning intensity.

Red is one of those colours you wear to make a statement - to look strong and bold in a work outfit, to look cheerful and "prosperous" during Chinese New Year, to look resplendent and eye-catching in a red gown. How deep and how rich the colour is. (And you're thinking - when will this girl stop waxing lyrical about colours?)

I don't nearly make enough accessories in red. Here are some (accessory names link to the original posts):

Spotlight - Pretty Pastels

Hi folks! I'm still traipsing around Melbourne, so this is a scheduled post. :)

Today's spotlight is on pretty pastel colours.

Ah, how I love pastel tones - baby blues and baby pinks, light lilac and cream tones. Love love love. They give the impression of such demure sweetness. Maybe I should wear more pastels, since demure sweetness tends not to be the impression I give people. *evil cackle* Anyway this post is not about me. Look at this image I found on the internet:

I don't know what they are (mochi? pao?), but I so want to eat them based on appearance alone. The front row has such pretty pastel colours. ◕‿◕

Here are some designs I've made in pastel tones - in dusty pink, rosaline, lilac and ivory tones.
(Click on the accessory's name to go to its original post.)
 Desert Rose (Set: RM31)
Arielle (RM21)

If you'd like to add some pastels to your wardrobe, look no further!

Spotlight - Silver-Blue

I mentioned my vacaaaaaation \o/ in the last post, but just in case you have just stumbled across this blog, I'm not actually blogging in real time at the moment. At the moment you are reading this, I am probably communing with kangaroos and wallabies and wombats in the great Australian Outback. Awesome.

I am hopefully also lying under the stars in our camping ground, staring at the awe-inducing silvery plethora of stars strewn across the night sky, clear and beautiful like you never see in pollution-infested Malaysia. 


Ah, the colours of silver and midnight blue. These two colours go so well with each other, and paint a picture of such understated glamour, mystery, and style. Loving these colours as I do, I have of course made a number of trinkets in this theme, as you can see below:

(Click on the accessory names to be directed to the original post of these accessories!)
 Moon River (Set: RM21)

If interested in purchasing, please email me at

As I am on vacay, may not be able to reply as frequently but rest assured that I will respond when I have time!

Rosalind - Customised


I am on vacation in the land down under at the moment, so this is a scheduled post. I am not actually here. There is no spoon.

However, since I am an organised and well-prepared person (self praise is no praise, I know, I know), I have scheduled a couple of posts for the week that I am gone, so that I still have some sort of ~Internet presence during this Christmas season.


Here's a customised version of the Rosalind bracelet that I posted all the way back in June. My friend Anujah wanted to make a new bracelet for her mummy out of some cultured pearls from an old bracelet. Recycling is the way to go! She wanted something simple and dainty, as you can see below:
Tiny clear and rosaline round faceted chinese crystals accompany each vintage-pink coloured pearl. 

Status: Not Available
Materials: Vintage-Pink Cultured Pearls, Clear and Rosaline Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals

Enjoy your weekend!

Amethyst Abundance - Customised

Last post before I fly off for my long-awaited vacation! Woohoo!

For all you who are working / studying, Christmas is near! Holidays soon - hang in there. :)

A little while back, April, who previously customised this Anchor of Hope bracelet for herself emailed me about customising something similar but slightly different for a friend of hers. It has the same rich purple and jet black scheme as April's own bracelet, and I've named it Amethyst Abundance. The first part is self-explanatory, and the word "abundance" brings to mind "richness" - but in this case, I am not referring to monetary riches, but an abundant life - the kind of life we hope our friends and family are blessed with.
 Pearls and crystals in varying shades of purple and black, and a lovely Amethyst blend Swarovski heart.
 Wishing your friend an abundant life -- a life full of love, joy and hope.
Item Code & Name: 137 Amethyst Abundance - Customised
Price: RM25.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes (but of course you're highly encouraged to personalise it to be uniquely yours!)
Materials: Deep Purple Round Faceted Chinese Crystals, Bright Purple Faux Pearls, Jet Black Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Chinese Knot Link, Butterfly Link, Love Charm, Joy Charm, Hope Bead, Amethyst Blend Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 16cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain

That's all folks -
I will be incommunicado for the next week or so, try not to miss me too much! Hehe. :p

If this blog continues to get updated, don't be alarmed! I've scheduled a few posts to go up in the coming week, just to keep this blog alive during my absence. (So you don't forget its existence, more like. :p )

Au revoir!

Red and Black - Customised

Greetings, earthlings.

I have no idea why I started the post that way. My brain is an interesting place. :p

Anyway --
This post, I am showcasing a set that was customised for my colleague and friend Ju Li. Ju Li previously ordered a customisation of this Lush Lavender set (based originally on a bracelet). This time is no different. She saw this Red and Black bracelet and asked if I could make it into a necklace with matching earrings. 

So I tinkered around and voila~~~

Price: RM27.00 (bracelet + earrings) - items can be sold separately, please look below.
