Desert Rose

One of the key things in accessory-making is making the designs that you love and feel passionate about. I won't be making chunky pandora-style jewelry anytime soon, because that's not my thing. ◡‿◡

However, the thing about always making trinkets you love is that you love them so much that you don't want to sell them! ♥‿♥ Haha. This post contains a set that I personally love and would love to keep for myself, but probably shouldn't, because I only have one neck and 2 wrists and 2 ears. So here I am, sharing it with you, in the hopes that you will love it to and want to buy it too. I can't be keeping everything for myself after all. ◕‿◕

On one of my recent bead-shopping-binges (the same one where I got the lampwork beads for these earrings), I came across these faux pearls in such a lovely dusty pink colour that I absolutely had to get them. There was no question about it. These tiny little things are soft blush/dusty-pink, and go well with a variety of pastel colours as well as earthy tones. The description on the pearls read "light sahara", which is why I'm naming this bracelet-necklace-earring set Desert Rose:
A medley of silver, light lavender and dusty pink faux pearls. 
Flower filigrees and cabochons represent that elusive rose that blooms in the desert, a dainty and lovely sight belying much inner strength and resilience - more than meets the eye.

Item Code & Name: SET013 Desert Rose
Price: RM31.00 (bracelet + earrings + necklace) - items can be sold separately, please look below.

 The bracelet, you can say, is the centrepiece of the set, with a dainty violet rose cabochon as the focal point. I'd also like to point your attention to the lovely antique-looking heart-shaped toggle clasp at the end of the bracelet. So pretty! ♥‿♥

 Thought the earrings should be something simple and classy, to complement the fancier styling of the bracelet and necklace. I'm quite tempted to make an array of simple pearl earrings like these in allllll the colours, so I can match them with all my outfits. Haha. Someday, someday.

This necklace is a choker-style necklace, and so to be worn close to the neck, falling right at the clavicle.

To end, here's Sting's homage to the Desert Rose (metaphor for the exotic women in his life, perhaps. Heh) -
Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this
