Moulin Rouge - Customised

Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

So says a famous song performed in the ever lyrical and majestic classic movie musical - Moulin Rouge. Now obviously here at Dainty Little Trinkets we think that affordable trinkets in all sorts of pretty, shiny colours and shapes are good enough, but we are living in a material world, after all. :p I'm rather excited about this post, because it's fun to see how many Moulin Rouge song references I can pack into this post. No matter, I know that you'll bear with me, come what may. Heehee. Ok I'll stop now.

Ah, Moulin Rouge. For the uninitiated, this movie tells the story of young writer, Christian, a hopeless romantic, who falls in love with a courtesan, Satine, the star of the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret show in the heart of Paris. The story of Christian and Satine is a tragic tale filled with star-crossed love, plenty of bittersweet longing, in a setting that is both glamorous and electrifying, but also lonely. (I really like the movie, can you tell? :p)

When Jo Jo emailed me to customise an Eiffel Tower-themed set for her BFF and mentioned that she likes bold, bright colours, Moulin Rouge immediately came to mind. Here is an ode to that era - the glitz, the glamour, the romance and the mystery.

Let me take another moment to wax lyrical about the black pearls with gold swirls. They're so pretty and unique! It's the first time they've been incorporated into a design, and I look forward to designing many more pieces with these faux pearls. Let me know at daintylittletrinkets@gmail.com if you wanna customise something with them!

In the meantime, check out the customised label for more creations for my lovely customers, and if you like purchasing items in little matched sets, check out the different sets here!

To end, I'll share one of my favourite songs from the movie, which I sing when life gets a little too much and I wanna fly away.

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday...
