Blue Nightingale


Happy National Day to all my fellow Malaysians. Our country ain't perfect, but it's blessed with tons of natural resources and a lack of natural disasters, so we should be thankful. We should also be thankful for the melting pot of cultures that weave such a wonderful tapestry of diversity and Muhibbah spirit. Also tomorrow is a public holiday! Awesome \o/

Now, little bird charms and beads are no strangers to Dainty Little Trinkets. They're just so cutesy and dainty, I can't help but feature them often, and in all sorts of variations. One particular design that has seen a lot of colour variation is the Nightingale, which dates back to the early stages of my accessory-making hobby, more than a year ago. 

Since I'm big on nostalgia, let's take a little walk down memory lane:
Here's the original pair of silver nightingale earrings.
Here's the same pair in ivory and rosaline.
Here's the nature-themed brown & green version.
Here's the bold and bright scarlet pair.
Now behold the latest incarnation of the Nightingale - in blue and purple, made with lovely Czech Preciosa crystals:

 Cute little birdies dangling from a chain made of cobalt AB and metallic purple Czech Preciosa crystals, accompanied by dainty little clover links.
Item Code & Name: 286 Blue Nightingale 
Price: RM12.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Cobalt AB & Metallic Purple Czech "Preciosa" Fire-Polished Glass Beads, Clover Links, Bird Beads

Now I'll leave you with a cute little Merdeka advert from Maxis. :)
Selamat Hari Merdeka, y'all.

The shopping bug has bitten and I have been going on a half-crazed bead-shopping binge these past few days. I am now surrounded by a mass of my shiny new purchases and my eyes are gleaming with the sparkle reflected off of the beads and charms and I am slowly starting to transform into Smaug - he who hoards treasure and breathes fire at anyone who dares disturb him (I only wish I could be like him, haha).

Wow, that was a long monologue, but I guess this blog is basically one long, extended monologue from me, so I'm guessing you either skim over all my text and stare at pictures only, or you actually find my neurosis amusing. Heh.


Today's post is dedicated to Ren, who is a hardworking PhD student in the windy land of Wellington. She's always a ray (or multiple rays) of Sunshine, always a friend of the world and always ready for all sorts of fun and hijinks. Here's a little bookmark I made for her. (Ren if you're reading this, come back and claim it! Haha)
 A flower-and-sunny-yellow-themed bookmark: yellow and white-striped faux pearls, a diamond link, a gorgeous yellow rose and a Never Give Up charm.
Item Code & Name: 285 Sunshine
Price: RM22.00
Status: [Sold], Not Available (I've run out of this yellow rose, but I have roses of other colours. Email me if you're interested!)
Materials: Shiny Yellow & Yellow/White-Striped Faux Pearls, Diamond Link, Yellow Polymer Clay Rose, Never Never Give Up Charm

Ren dear, continue being the sweet, sunny person that you are. Keep on keeping on with your research work - I have no doubt that you'll get there, one step at a time!

Check out other bookmark designs here! All totally customisable. :)

For any orders / enquiries, please email

Thank ye!
Time to go back to staring at my preciousssssssss treasures.

I've always had a fascination with chandeliers - 
these ornate fixtures that speak of opulence and extravagance,
exquisitely assembled crystals dangling and radiating light towards those below.

So dramatic and eye-catching are these chandeliers that they've even featured as a main prop in the Phantom of the Opera, where it sails over the heads of the audience and crashes onto the stage. Ah, gotta love that.

Here is my attempt at creating a pair of earrings that look like miniature chandeliers:

 Silver-clear and emerald crystal teardrops dangle from an ornate flower link like tiny sparkling crystals on a chandelier.
I see this pair of earrings and I think - Slytherin colours! /geek. :D

Item Code & Name: 284 Chandelier
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes
Materials: Silver-Clear & Emerald Chinese Crystal Teardrops, Flower Links

Not a fan of green? The emerald crystal teardrops can also be replaced with burgundy crystal teardrops.

Just email me at

Check out some customised trinkets over here!

In tribute to the Phantom of the Opera, I shall bid you good night with the Music of the Night:

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Those who are familiar with my blog will know that I absolutely adore Czech Fire-Polished "Preciosa" Glass Beads. Those who have the patience to read my ramblings will also know that I am fond of the colour black and that my wardrobe consists of a lot of black. 

As one of the birthday presents to myself (I've been giving myself lots of presents, narcissist that I am), I made a bracelet out of Preciosa glass beads, in shades of black, silver and gray. All the better to match all your clothing with. In fact, I just wore the bracelet today. :D Here it is~
 Dark Gray, Montana AB and Metallic Gray Czech Preciosa beads, with two dainty celtic heart beads thrown into the mix,
 My favourite bead would be the Montana AB ones (in between the Dark Gray and Metallic Gray beads) because of the lovely blueish-silver shine that is reflected on certain facets of the bead.
Item Code & Name: 283 Preciosa
Price: RM20.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Dark Gray / Montana AB / Metallic Gray Czech "Preciosa" Fire-Polished Glass Beads, Celtic Heart Beads, Toggle Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 15cm (including clasp)

I've been told that my wrists are freakishly small, so this bracelet can be lengthened to 17cm (the addition of two celtic heart beads) at no extra charge. :) Just email me at to discuss things further!

If you love the look of these Preciosa beads and would like to see more creations featuring them, check out this link! :)

'Twas a tiring Tuesday for me, so I shall now retire to bed. 

Good night
Sleep tight
Don't let the bed bugs bite!

Sunday Stylefile #5

Tis the end of the weekend and tis almost the end of August, my friends. 

That means another Sunday Stylefile, which, for the uninitiated, is an avenue for me to drool over clothes under the pretense of "matching" them with one of my accessories. :D It's a fun thing to do! Check out the other Sunday Stylefiles for some pretty clothing. :)

This month's accessory in question is the Painted Black bracelet. 
 Sleek silver and black tones, with little hints of femininity from the Love and flower links, and a Silver Night Swarovski Heart. I have obviously chosen to match them with three gorgeous little black dresses, as seen here:

On ze left, look stunning and elegant with the sleek black Mesh Hem Dress from Dressabelle.
In ze middle, indulge in a little traditional flair by donning this gorgeous Renaissance Flare Dress from Whitesoot.
On ze right, spend a day out in the sun in this fun and feminine Polka Dot Floral Dress from Hutz Fashion.

*Disclaimer* I own not the images above, they are from the sites that I have credited. 
Click on the links to go buy them pretty dresses. :)
 The Painted Black bracelet can be purchased at 10% off from now till the next Sunday Stylefile post. Originally RM19, it''ll now cost RM17. Check out more pictures of the bracelet here.

Contact me at
if you have any queries, orders or random musings. :)

Take this sinkin' boat
And point it home
We've still got time

One of my favourite things to do is reinvent old knick-knacks.

When my friend Jah wanted to recycle an old chunky bracelet, I thought it'd be cool to take it apart and make earrings out of them! Voila - one bracelet now has become two pairs of earrings. :)

Wirework using miyuki beads in shades of gold and brown - whoever made these initial circular and square bits is definitely far more skilled than I am. :) They make two pretty pairs of funky earrings,  no? :D

Status: Not Available
Materials: An old bracelet :D

Happy Saturday, my friends!

Sorry for the lack of new content this week. There's some new stuff coming up this week! :)
In the meantime, check out the clearance sale!

Thursday, 21 August 2014


So, the last post was about this beautiful Sterling Silver double infinity link that I purchased from a cool silversmith from the U.S. When I was perusing this person's exquisite creations, I couldn't resist buying something for myself too!

Here's an adorable little hummingbird pendant, which I've paired with a tiny aquamarine Swarovski bicone.

Status: Not Available
Materials: Hummingbird Charm, Aquamarine Swarovski Bicone

If only shipping from the U.S weren't so expensive!

Looks like this has been a week of posting unavailble things, but if you'd like to stay and browse some items, just check out the Available or Available for Remakes sections!

Double Infinity

Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.

Guess the quote. :)

In one of the tv shows that I used to love and watch regularly - Revenge - a father asks his daughter: "Do you know how much I love you? Infinity times infinity." Cheesy though it may be, the idea of loving someone so much that infinity isn't enough, that your love is bigger than an infinity, is a beautiful one. 

I made a necklace for my friend using a sterling silver double-infinity charm imported all the way from some super cool artisan in the U.S. It's not available for remakes, but I thought I'd share it anyway, coz the charm is exquisitely beautiful.
Infinity times Infinity - I love the way the two infinity symbols intertwine with each other.

Status: Not Available
Materials: Double Infinity Charm

Happy birthday my friend.
May you find one who loves you infinitely, always.

If you like the infinity symbol, check out some (single) infinity charm creations here, here and here.

Ombré | La Perla Collection: Part 5

- colours or tones that shade into each other; a gradient of colours.

Ombré has been all the rage lately in fashion. I've definitely coveted those gorgeous ombré hairstyles we see so much everywhere, and clothing with colour gradients are just so very pretty. Since the hairstyles are super expensive to get and maintain, I've gone for the next best thing - making "ombré" earrings!

Here's the last part of the La Perla collection, featuring faux pearls in a colour gradient -

 Faux pearls in a gradient of dusty pink - soft lilac - dusty purple - burgundy.
Item Code & Name: 280 Ombré
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Dusty Pink, Soft Lilac, Dusty Purple, Burgundy Faux Pearls

Gotta love them colour gradients.
I think the soft sheen of the faux pearls and the combination of the gradient of colours are very pretty indeed, making them my favourite of this collection.

Thus ends another collection!

Orders? Enquries?

See you in the coming week for more new creations!

 Soft gold faux pearls interspersed with black faux pearls with gold swirls on them, with a round double twisted ring at the centre.
 Encased within the round double twisted ring is a smaller black pearl, this one with gold and silver swirls.

 The swallow remains one of my favourite links to date, and I feel that it is particularly apt for this piece. :)
Item Code & Name: 278 Freedom
Price: RM15.00

Footprints | La Perla Collection: Part 2

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.

This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.

So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"

The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."

- Mary Stevenson

This poem was one that touched me a lot when I first came to know God. Hope it has touched you too. :)

Part 2 of the La Perla Collection features a footprint charm that has never featured in any Dainty Little Trinket to this date. :) I've been wanting to make something with this charm for sometime now. With no further ado - here it is:
 Alternating rosaline and pale blue pearls, a celtic knot link to represent the bonds of family and friends, a footprint charm, and two words of encouragement - hope. courage.
 The rosaline and pale blue pearls are also typically colours used to represent new born baby girls and baby boys, with the little footprint charms looking like little baby toes. This would make quite a suitable gift for new mothers - to give hope, to give courage.
Item Code & Name: 277 Footprints
Price: RM18.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Rosaline and Pale Blue Faux Pearls, Celtic Knot Link, Footprint Charm, Hope Bead, Courage Bead
Measurements: Approximately 17cm (including clasp) + 2.5cm extender chain

Whatever you are going through, always know that Someone is watching over you, and that He will carry you through.

Rainbow Promotion with I Can't Sew - Part 2

Monday blues.

There's nothing like coming home from a traffic jam of epic proportions caused by a thunderstorm of epic proportions to find that your kitchen was invaded by intelligent (EVIL!) monkeys who managed to eat all your bananas, open your fridge, break half a dozen eggs, and take a dump as a "thank you", leaving your entire kitchen floor a bloody mess.

Hope your Monday is better than mine. :p

Anyway, here's our second collaboration with I Can't Sew for their Rainbow Proportion - a promo package in shades of blue (Monday blues!) and black (as black as my anger for those creatures!)
 A gorgeous work dress with cobalt blue peplum accents, matched with the midnight blue and black shades of the Dark Night bracelet and earring set.

Priced normally at RM86, this deal is available for only RM50! Again, super worth it, but only 1 package exists and it expires on 15 August, so go get it before time runs out!

Check out the promo package on I Can't Sew's webpage here ♥

May your Tuesday be better than your Monday!

Midsummer Night's Dream | La Perla Collection: Part 1

"Are you sure
That we are awake? It seems to me
That yet we sleep, we dream."
- Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

Part 1 of the La Perla Collection features a bracelet that attempts to recreate the fantasy and the ethereal aspect one of Shakespeare's classics. Imagine a dream in the middle of a warm summer night -
 Midnight blue pearls to represent a midsummer night, burgundy pearls to represent one's dream-like, surreal state of mind, accompanied by moon and star charms.
 Two of the midnight blue pearls at the midway point of each side are slightly larger - reflecting the different sizes of constellations in the night sky. I wouldn't have thought that this colour combination would work until I combined them - I like the rich and ethereal quality that the colours evoke.

Item Code & Name: 276 Midsummer Night's Dream
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available
Materials: Burgundy and Midnight Blue Faux Pearls, Moon Charm, Star Charm, Toggle Clasp
Measurements: Approximately 18cm (including clasp)

All orders and enquiries can be made to

Tonight~ may you have a fantastical adventure in your personal little midsummer night's dream.

La Perla - Collection Masterpost

Ladies and gentlefriends,
it has been a while since the last collection - one month and three days to be exact - and so it is time to begin another. :)

Now, for the uninitiated, La Perla is predominantly known as a lingerie brand. I first heard of it from the mouth of Paula Abdul, on American Idol. Obviously I can't remember the context in which she was talking about lingerie on a reality tv show about singing (say what?!), but the words "La Perla" have stuck with me ever since.

This is obviously not a collection on lingerie, so I thought I'd explain that La Perla is spanish for Pearl. And this collection is a collection for all things pearly! Over the next week or so, get ready to see some accessory designs incorporating a variety of pretty, shiny faux pearls. 

So pretty right, this picture?
I mooched it off the internet. :p

A collection of dainty little pearl trinkets coming your way, starting from tomorrow - Sunday!

Part 2: Footprints
Part 3: Freedom
Part 4: Black & Gold
Part 5: Ombre

Check out some previous collections here.

See you real soon!

Eternal Flame

Happy Thursday - the weekend is near!

Today's post delves back into the land of the asymmetrical. It is also possibly one of my favourite creations ever, because of the simplicity of the design and the adjustable nature of the necklace. I think it's super cool. But then I think a lot of my creations are super cool. Haha, self praise = no praise, I know, I know. ◕‿◕✿

Onto the actual point of this post. First up - pictures!

 An infinity symbol linked to the other side of the necklace, ending with a flame-red Swarovski heart.

 Is this burning an eternal flame?

The special thing about this necklace is that the length of the necklace can be adjusted to suit your taste, simply by moving the infinity link up and down the chain from the other side. I shall illustrate with loads of gratuitous selfies of my own neck. I have more selfies of my neck than of my face. Heh.

 Exhibit A: Here's the regular length of the necklace. The infinity link falls a bit below the clavicle, with the Swarovski heart dangling down the sternum. (Gee, sure hope I haven't gotten my body parts wrong)

 Exhibit B: Not a fan of the plunging heart? Wear the necklace with the infinity link right next to the Swarovski heart.

 Exhibit C: My favourite. For dramatic effect, wear the necklace like a choker, with the Swarovski heart plunging down your... plunging neckline. 

In conclusion, I love this necklace! It's simple but it's fun and it's très chic to boot!
Would you like to make it yours today?

Item Code & Name: 275 Eternal Flame
Price: RM18.00
Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes
Materials: Infinity Link, Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 43cm (including clasp), drop = 4.5cm (length adjustable to whatever you want it to be!)

If you like this necklace but would prefer a different coloured Swarovski heart, just email me!

Close your eyes
Give me your hand darling
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming

Or is this burning an eternal flame?

Madame Butterfly

Hello people!

Today's post features something I made for a friend, but because I haven't actually given this present to this friend yet, I'll have to be mildly cryptic. Once upon a time, my friend told me this joke:

Why did the man climb up a tower to throw butter out of the window?
To watch the butter fly!

Haha, what a ridiculously corny joke, but this friend of mine was tickled pink by it. She continues to be so amused that she can't say this joke without laughing her head off. We laugh because she laughs! 

Long story short, I've always associated butterflies with her.
So here's a little handbag charm for Miss A. If you're reading this, let's meet up soon so I can give this to you! <3
 A handbag charm with the alphabet A, a rosaline crystal, a vintage pink dahlia on an intricate flower filigree, a butterfly charm, and a Live. Laugh. Love. charm. Sweet and dainty, just like the one who'll be receiving this keepsake. :)
Item Code & Name: 274 Madame Butterfly
Price: RM19.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Rosaline Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Vintage Pink Dahlia Cabochon, Flower Filigree, Butterfly Charm, Alphabet Charm, Live Laugh Love Charm

This handbag charm draws inspiration from the items in the Words to Live By collection. Check that out here!
If you like handbag charms, there's more here!
Also, need I remind you that there's a clearance sale going on? :)

Happy birthday, A. May your life have lots of laughter and love in it, always.

Red Earth

On leave today. :D
Been on a Vampire Diaries marathon. Didn't expect the storyline to be as compelling as it's been. Heh, compelling. Only just finished Season 2, and I'm eager to continue, so this shall be a short post!

It's been a while since I made a pair of asymmetrical earrings, so here's one in shades of red, gold, and brown:

Red Earth: asymmetrically-arranged flower disc beads, maroon faux pearls and round-faceted chinese crystals in shades of smoked topaz, brown and honey topaz.
Item Code & Name: 273 Red Earth
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: Maroon Faux Pearls, Smoked Topaz, Brown & Honey Topaz Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Flower Disc Beads

I like the earthy red tones of this piece. Such rich, warm autumn colours!

If you like, you can order this at

Going back to the riveting tale of vampires, witches and Mystic Falls now.

The Ring

Happy Saturday!

Following along the line of "mysterious" names I've been giving my creations, this post is about The Ring.

I remember a time in the early 2000s where Japanese and Korean horror movies were all the rage. And creepy they were - always featuring young, pale, child-like ghosts with pupils as black as night and stares more horrifying than zombies / vampires / werewolves. *shivers* What started it off, of course, seems to be a movie called The Ring. Being a scaredy-cat of all things supernatural, I steered clear of watching the Japanese version, but got roped into watching the American remake. That was bone-chilling enough, and I hear that the Japanese version is infinitely scarier. Was quite afraid of things crawling out of my laptop screen for a while. Brrrr.

Anyway, that's just lil' old me reminiscing. It has nothing to do with this post, as this post is about a simple suede bracelet, which happens to contain a "ring". 
 Back to basics - dark grey suede connected to a diamond-cut faceted ring.
 I made this for myself because I wanted a suede bracelet, and my tastes veer towards the simple, straight-laced designs. 
Item Code & Name: 272 The Ring
Price: RM10.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Diamond-Cut Faceted Ring, Suede, Grey Chinese Crystal Doughnut
Measurements: Approximately 15cm (including clasp) + 2cm extender chain

All orders / enquiries can be made at

Enjoy your weekend, folks.
