Let Joy Spring

Hello folks!

Remember the Rainbow Sprinkles collection? 
I'm very fond of this collection, of the bright and happy colours. Sometimes you just need something cheery and joyful in your life - and who's to say that you can't get that from wearing accessories? No one!

I made this set as a little pick-me-up for myself, to choose to be happy and Let Joy Spring from somewhere within, regardless of circumstance. (Easier said than done, but still, it's a good reminder. :))
A bracelet and earring set of shiny rainbow-coloured faux pearls, and pure, undiluted Joy!

Item Code & Name: SET028 Let Joy Spring
Price: RM22.00 (bracelet + earrings) - items can be sold separately, please look below.
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Please see below.
 Rainbow-coloured faux pearls lined up in a pretty row, followed by a Joy charm dangling from a flower link, a clear Swarovski butterfly bead, and a flower disc bead. At the end of the extender chain lies a dainty rose charm. 
 Let Joy Spring sort of has a double meaning, the first being to choose to be joyful, and the second in reference to all the items reminiscent of spring in this piece - butterflies and flowers! Happiness and Unicorns! You get the drift. ◕‿◕✿

Item Code & Name: 185 Let Joy Spring (Bracelet)
Price: RM18.00 (bracelet only)
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Shiny Rainbow Faux Pearls, Flower Link, Swarovski Butterfly Bead, Flower Disc Bead, Joy Charm, Rose Charm
Measurements: Approximately 15.5cm (including clasp) + 1.5cm extender chain

 Asymmetrical earrings with slightly smaller faux pearls in the same shiny rainbow shades, and Joy at the end of the rainbow. Not quite a pot of gold, but perhaps something better.
Item Code & Name: 186 Let Joy Spring (Earrings)
Price: RM8.00 (earrings only)
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Shiny Rainbow Faux Pearls, Joy Charm

Available for remakes at

Here's wishing you a lovely day / week / year ahead, that you'll find joy in all you do, and joy in unexpected places.

In the hustle and bustle of city life
As work sets in and gets routine
I find myself

Alas, we have to work to afford our holidays, and work we must. In the meantime, as I daydream about ocean waves and sunny shores, I make myself accessories inspired by the ocean! :)

So if you click on the link above, you'll be directed to a collection I previously made that was inspired by the ocean. You'll also see little dolphin links and charms featured heavily throughout. While looking through photos of my previous creations (I like to dwell on past glories... even though they're not particularly glorious, hehe), it occurred to me that I never actually made anything with dolphins/seashells for myself! Obviously this was a grave oversight that I had to rectify.

Here are a pair of asymmetrical earrings. Delphinus is the latin word for dolphin, and also the name of a dolphin-like constellation in the sky. 

 Asymmetrical earrings with equal parts - shell beads, dolphins and aquamarine AB Czech Preciosa crystals

Against a silver background for clearer viewing

Item Code & Name: 184 Delphinus
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Round Shell Beads, Aquamarine AB Czech "Preciosa" Fire-Polished Glass Beads, Dolphin Link, Dolphin Charm

One day, I shall go on a beach holiday, and wear this pair of earrings as I lounge in the sun. One day.

Little White Boat

When I was little, my mummy used to sing me lullabies to lull me to sleep. 

One of my favourites was 小白船 - Little White Boat, a whimsical children's folksong that still gets me all nostalgic in this day and age. The song follows a little white boat's journey as it sails across the sky. I've recently found out that it was originally a Korean folksong, written to distract and comfort little children in the face of the wars that were being waged at that time. True to its lyrics, the song is like a daydream - where you imagine faraway lands and sail away without a care in the world. 

When mummy asked me to make her a bookmark for all the deep Chinese stuff that she reads, I of course wanted to make her something personal - inspired by this beautiful folk song.
 Funny story - I always thought the first line of the song was "蓝蓝的天空, 白白的云, 有只小白船" - "In the blue sky, amidst the white clouds, there sails a little white boat" - hence the shiny white pearl at the tip of the bookmark, followed by aquamarine crystals with a dolphin link between and a little sail boat at the end. Turns out I had been wrong about the lyrics the whole time. The lyrics mean something more along the lines of - "In the blue sky, amidst the milky way, there sails a little white boat". So no fluffy white clouds. Wonder where I got that from. :p
 This bookmark is now happily sandwiched between one of mummy's beloved books - hopefully they will accompany her as her imagination sails away to faraway lands - wherever the books lead her to. 

Item Code & Name: 183 Little White Boat
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for different remake (I've run out of this particular bookmark, but there are others for you to select from. Just email me to check! :))
Materials: Shiny White Faux Pearl, Aquamarine Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Aquamarine Glass Bead, Dolphin Link, Sailboat Charm

Feeling nostalgic?
Go listen to the song below!

Or customise something for yourself. :)

May your dreams be sweet tonight, my friends.

Blood Diamond

Happy Saturday, folks!

I love them Saturdays. :)
It's a busy Saturday ahead, so I'll try to keep this short (keyword = try).

I don't know if you've ever watched the movie Blood Diamond, but if you haven't, I strongly recommend it. The poor people who are exploited and the lives that are shed in the pursuit of mining diamonds and making profits. Come to think of it, it's rather morbid to name an accessory after this issue. Oh well... we shall plod along merrily.

This Chinese New Year, I bought a pretty maroon lace dress and wanted a pair of earrings to match. Voila!

 This pair of earrings features diamond links (previously featured here) and Czech Preciosa crystals in shades of cherry red and rich wine.
Item Code & Name: 182 Blood Diamond
Price: RM13.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Diamond Links, Cherry Red and Rich Wine AB Czech "Preciosa" Fire-Polished Glass Beads

Find out how to order here. :)

Also a final reminder that the Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection sale ends TODAY!

That's all for now.

Lilac Blossoms - Customised

I came in like a WRECKING BALL~~~

So sorry.
That darned Miley Cyrus song has been stuck in my head and I had to share the misery! The chorus keeps repeating in an endless, torturous litany in my head (going back and forth like a pendulum, or a wrecking ball, wreacking havoc to my precious sanity). Is it stuck in yours yet? If so, I apologise profusely. :p

 Anyway, I am supposed to be saying demure, pleasant things so that you associate this little blog of mine with demure, pleasant things and not annoying songs that stick in your head and never leave. Ah, I don't know the first thing about branding. Marketing and consumer advertising is lost on me. 

ANYWAY, if you're still reading this, congratulations!

Today's post has nothing to do with that Miley song. It is actually a demure and pleasant pair of earrings customised by my often-featured customer, Kelsey. It is very demurely and pleasantly named Lilac Blossoms.

 Sleek silver and soft lilac faux pearls, tiny clover links and sweet rose charms
Item Code & Name: 181 Lilac Blossoms (Customised)
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver and Lilac Faux Pearls, Clover Links, Rose Charms

May I also take this post to remind you that this 20% sale is ending on 22nd Feb. You only have 2 days, so hurry!

Hope you've had a demure and pleasant reading experience.
Wishing you a demure and pleasant day ahead!

Intertwined - Midnight and Daylight

Bonjour, my petit friends!

Seems like we have a week of earrings ahead of us! I do so love earrings - they're convenient and easy to match with your Outfit Of The Day (does anyone find the hashtag #ootd just a little indulgent and hilarious? Not judging, it's just funny, these little Internet phenomenons. :p). Where was I? Yes, earrings.

Today's post features 2 pairs of earrings, 1 that I made for myself and 1 customised for Kelsey. Way back when, I posted this pair of earrings named Intertwined, and I have loved them ever since. Since these were made for a friend, I decided to make myself one too! Kelsey also fell in love with them and asked them to be customised in a different colour. With no further ado, behold -

Intertwined - both pairs feature tiny silver pearls encased within ornate antique silver-plated round double twisted rings. Midnight features pearls in stunning midnight blue and Daylight features pearls in a pale baby blue. The midnight blue pearls are larger than the pale blue.
Item Code & Name: 172 Intertwined (Midnight)
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Silver and Midnight Blue Faux Pearls, Round Double-Twisted Rings
Item Code & Name: 180 Intertwined (Daylight)
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver and Pale Blue Faux Pearls, Round Double-Twisted Rings

 Like this design but prefer pearls of a different colour?
Customisation is just a step away!

Woodlands - Customised


Hope all of you are having a lovely evening. 

Today's scheduled post is simple, as I am still somewhere up north (hopefully eating something yummy, like salted egg yolk deep fried tofu, mmm). Here's a pair of earrings that I customised for one of my most frequent and loyal customers, Kelsey! :)

Kelsey liked this pair of Woodlands earrings, but wanted it to be in a colour that would easily match clothing of any colour. So here it is in shades of clear crystal and white instead of earthy brown and forest green, Woodlands in winter, if you will.
 Clear and frosty white crystal doughnuts, little clover links and asymmetrical leaf charms

Item Code & Name: 166 Woodlands (Customised)
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes
Materials: Clear and Frosty White Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Clover Links, Asymmetrical Leaf Charms

Wishing you a fun and productive week ahead.

Queen of Hearts - Customised

-Scheduled Post-

I'm up north attending a cousin's wedding at the moment, so here is a scheduled post!

A while back, I posted a necklace I made for my mummy - Queen of Hearts. Not long after that, a sweet customer by the name of Kristin emailed me to order that, together with a matching pair of earrings.

Here are the earrings! :)

 This pair of earrings is a silver and ruby red replica of the Celtic Hearts earrings posted many moons ago. I do quite like this crystal - link - charm combination, and it goes very well with the necklace (link above).
With silver-black and ruby red chinese crystal doughnuts, this pair of earrings features tiny clover links and celtic heart charms.

Item Code & Name: 173 Queen of Hearts (Customised)
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver-Black and Red Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Clover Links, Celtic Heart Charms

Mystique | Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 6

Thought that might have caught your attention if you were scrolling past? :p I hope so anyway! Hehe.

It's true though. There's a 20% sale for every 2 items that you buy from the Double Double, Toil and Trouble collection, my tribute to all things double. And it ends on 22nd Feb, so hurry! :) Here's the last item in the collection and it's my favourite of the lot. Named Mystique, this double-chained necklace is unique in that the toggle is not at the back of your neck, but part of the necklace chain in front.
 On one side - embossed purple Czech Preciosa crystals and lavender round faceted chinese crystals. On the other, a purple AB Czech Preciosa crystal encased within a round double-twisted ring. Both sides are connected with twin chains.

A closeup of the crystals - I particularly adore the embossed purple Czech crystals near the toggle clasp.

Suitable with v-necked or scoop-necked tops/dresses, this necklace is simple and elegant with a slight tinge of mystery and intrigue.

Item Code & Name: 179 Mystique
Price: RM20.00
Status: [Sold 3], Available for remakes
Materials: Embossed Purple and Purple AB Czech "Preciosa" Fire-Polished Glass Beads, Lavender Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Round Double Twisted Ring, Toggle Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 50cm (including clasp) 

Ah, I'll be sad to see this collection go. 

It's possibly one of my favourites. But then again, I say that about almost every collection. MY BABIES!
Anywaaaay, if you wish to purchase any of these, or capitalise on the SALE that is goin' on, please email me at 

Thank you and good night!

Lockheart | Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 5

Happy Tuesday, y'all! :)
Hope the week has been good for you so far.

We've reached the necklace portion of this collection (that somewhat rhymed, hee), and I'm here to introduce my first ever double-chained necklace! I'm quite happy with this first creation - it's a sweet and simple design that fits the Dainty Little Trinkets name.

This necklace is named Lockheart because one of the pendants is a padlock with a heart cutout, and I'm also a little tickled by the name's similarity to Gilderoy Lockhart's name - you know, the ridiculous wizard and Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher in the Harry Potter universe who basically flailed around causing chaos and claiming others' achievements as his own. :p
 A double chained necklace with 2 corresponding pendants - a lock and a key. It's a reminder of sorts to be aware of who (or what) holds the key to your heart and to pursue the things and dreams that matter. Too much cheese? Revel in it!

 On the inner chain are tiny heart links and cloudy white / rosaline round faceted crystals. If you look carefully, you'll see that the order of the crystals on each side are reversed for a little asymmetrical flair.

The two chains fall nicely across one's clavicle and sternum without overlapping, and the effect is rather pretty, if I do say so myself. :)

Item Code & Name: 178 Lockheart
Price: RM24.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Cloudy White & Rosaline Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Tiny Heart Links, Key Charm, Lock Charm
Measurements: Inner Chain = Approximately 43cm (including clasp), Outer Chain = Approximately 50cm (including clasp) + 3.5cm extender chain

Need I remind you that a sale is going on?

Daenerys & Drogo | Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 4

Hello all.
Short post ahoy! 
It's because the weekend is nearly over and I am in a period of mourning. 
Oh, the weekly struggle of returning to work! /melodrama

Post no. 4 in the Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection features another pair of asymmetrical earrings, this time in tribute to 2 Game of Thrones characters - Daenerys & Drogo. This is more for Daenerys really, since she developed from a pawn in a game of thrones to a brave, fierce Khaleesi with the allegiance of legions of the Unsullied army and the protection of dragons. Coolness.

These earrings are in reference to what happened in the first season, for reasons that will become apparent soon.

 Daenerys referred to Drogo as her sun and stars, whereas Drogo referred to Daenerys as the moon of his life. The moon and the stars shining in the night sky - what would they be without each other? They're inseparable.
Jet black helix crystals and midnight blue pearls to signify the night sky, capped off with moon and star charms

Item Code & Name: 177 Daenerys & Drogo
Price: RM8.00 SALE: RM6 only (25% off, while item remains Available)
Status: Available
Materials: Jet Black Helix Crystals, Midnight Blue Faux Pearls, Moon Charm, Star Charm

Want to give this to someone as a romantic gesture?
Want to purchase it for yourself coz you just like the colours and the asymmetry?

Remember, the 20% sale is going on till 22nd Feb, so don't miss out!

Don't let the bed bugs bite.

Come Rain or Come Shine | Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 3


It's been really hot these few days, blazing sun and very little rain. Ah, tropical countries. The weather all over the world has been wonky too, what with the crazy high temperatures in Australia, the blistering freezing cold in some states in the U.S., etc. Better take care of our environment, or the end of the world will be upon us.

Now that's my lovely Saturday greeting to all of you. Hello to you too. :p

The point is, all of us hope to have people in our lives who will be there regardless of circumstance, come rain or come shine. With that, I'll introduce the 3rd post in the Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection - a pair of asymmetrical earrings that complement each other and fit this theme:

 On the left - cloudy white and cloudy turquoise crystals to signify a cloudy rainy day, and an umbrella to cover you.
On the right - clear and aquamarine crystals to signify a lovely sunny day, and a hat to protect you.
 This is for the people in your life who aren't just fairweather friends - who are with you Come Rain or Come Shine. It can even be a reminder to yourself - to be prepared to face the day, whatever it may bring.

Item Code & Name: 176 Come Rain or Come Shine
Price: RM8.00 SALE: RM6 only (25% off, while item remains Available)
Status: Available
Materials: Frosty White, Cloudy Turquoise, Aquamarine and Clear Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Umbrella Charm, Sun Hat Charm

Lovely day to you all.

Vintage Romance | Double Double Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 2


Hope your days back at work/school have been good so far. It'll be Friday soon, so that's always something to look forward to! :D I have been obsessed with this app called Quiz Up - it's a trivia game and it's consuming my life. Go check it out if you are looking for a weapon of mass distraction. If my blog gets less frequently updated, you'll know what to blame it on. :D

Onto the second post in the Double Double Toil and Trouble Collection, here's the second double-chained bracelet in this shiny new collection of trinkets - Vintage Romance.
 My very favourite vintage pink dahlia cabochon on an antique silver-plated flower filigree, hanging daintily from a double-chained bracelet featuring an arrow link and peach / clear chinese crystal doughnuts.

 Against a silver background for a clearer view - there's something vintage and romantic about this piece.

Violet Skies | Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection: Part 1

Hello folks.

It's back to work / school for a lot of us today, though I can't say I was super productive at work today. It's hard to recover from holidays. Wishing and pining for another holiday already! Ah, such is life.

Anyway, here's the first in the Double Double, Toil and Trouble Collection! It's a bracelet, much in the vein of the previously posted double-chained bracelets. Call me unoriginal, but I love this dainty swallow link so much, that I just have to replicate this bracelet design it in different colour themes -
Named Violet Skies for the crystals that are bluish purple in colour, and for the little swallow that seems to be flying across a gorgeous violet sky.
 Light sapphire chinese crystal doughnuts and violet round-faceted chinese crystals. The violet crystals are fascinating as they appear blue under certain lighting but are a lovely soft violet colour under sunlight. 
Wear this as a reminder to dream big, fly high, and be an inspiration to those around you. :)

Item Code & Name: 174 Violet Skies
Price: RM18.00 
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Light Sapphire Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Violet Round Faceted Chinese Crystals, Swallow Link, Inspire Charm, Heart Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 17cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain <-- this is the measurement for the inner chain - the outer (bottom) chain measures at 17.5cm so it hangs slightly lower on the wrist from the inner (top) chain.

Double Double, Toil and Trouble - Collection Masterpost

On this day the 2nd of February, I am here to introduce yet another collection!

One that I am quite excited about, because, let's face it, when am I not excited about new collections? Never!

This collection is a little unique in that all items have a sort of dual theme about them. Inspiration for this collection came a few months ago, when I made my first double-chained bracelet - Songs of Joy. I then made a couple more, as you can see here, and have been itching to make more of the like ever since. But that's not all - it's not just double-chained bracelets that this collection will feature. It's double-chained necklaces too! Earrings already come in a pair, so that's sorted. I've made asymmetrical earrings of pairs that fit together, like bacon and eggs, milk and cookies, burger and fries, macaroni and cheese - that kinda thing. Those are not actual earrings that I made. And yes, I realise that I cited only food examples. :p

 (Also, I seem to be sounding a little hyper today. Must be the excessive amounts of Lindt chocolate I consumed (so creamy, so rich, so gooood)). Moving on now - here's a nifty little graphic (stole off the internet) featuring a DNA double-helix -

From Tuesday this coming week, I will be posting 2 bracelets, 2 earrings and 2 necklaces for this collection, as follows:
Part 1: Violet Skies
Part 5: Lockheart
Part 6: Mystique

P/S - I purposefully waited till today (2nd Feb) to post this collection, because I am geeky that way.

PP/S - Double whammy -- SALE ALERT! For every TWO items you purchase from this collection, you will be entitled to 20% off BOTH items! The sales period is valid till 22nd Feb (heehee). Terms and conditions:
1. Valid for items purchased from this collection only
2. Valid for items that are available / available for remakes (i.e if I run out of materials for a particular item, I will obviously not be able to sell you that particular item)
3. If you purchase more than 2 items - for example, if you purchase 3 items, the 3rd item will not be entitled to any discount.

I think that pretty much covers it.
Excited? I know I am!

If you're wondering where the title of the collection comes from, it is from a song called Something Wicked This Way Comes, which was performed by a frog choir in Harry Potter: Prisoner of Azkaban. Snippet below! :D

See you on Tuesday my dear readers, and have a lovely week ahead.
