An Announcement & Thanksgiving

Hello, my dear readers. :)

Hope you've been enjoying the nice long weekend like I have been!

It's finally May - the 2 year anniversary since this little blog grew from a little spark of an idea to a full-fledged accessories blog. It's been a wonderful 2 years of learning, juggling my time, letting the creative juices flow, and making pretty creations. I hope you've enjoyed reading my rambly nonsense and that you've loved wearing the pieces that you've purchased / customised.

I'm not sure how else to say it, but...

I think it's time to semi-retire. 

I still love making accessories a great deal, and will probably still do so from time to time. However, maintaining this site and completing orders and keeping to an admittedly self-imposed schedule (coz I'm ridiculous like that) is getting a little difficult when working a full-time job, and I don't want to see this passion become a chore. So this is me announcing my semi-retirement.

HAHA- what does semi-retirement mean anyway? You ask.

Well it means that:-
1. This blog is still gonna stay up. 
2. The currently available accessories will still be available for purchase, so purchase away. :D
3. Items that are tagged available for remakes may still be remake-able - all you have to do is email me and enquire, and if I have the time (and energy), this is a possibility!
4. Customisation may not be quite so possible anymore. If you've been a regular customer and you merely wish for a slight change to an existing accessory... I may still say yes. But if it's something from scratch and may require quite a bit of my time, then I may say no.
5. I may still post on this blog from time to time, when inspiration strikes and I just have to share a design with you. It'll just be much less frequent.

Haha, sorry. I realise that this is super vague. I suppose it's coz I'm too nostalgic to shut down this site entirely, and it's not that I'm so tired that I wish to stop it altogether. 

So yeah, that's what I mean by semi-retirement. When in doubt, just enquire lah. ;)

A massive thank you to each and everyone of you who has explored this site, contributed your ideas, been sweet and lovely customers, and showed your appreciation for all things hand-crafted and made with love. A special heartfelt thank you to my friends in real life who have supported me and encouraged me in this crazy endeavour.

Thank you for everything!

Much love,
your slightly eccentric and verbose accessory-maker.

Flowers in the Rain

Lo and behold, it's the end of April!

Raise your hand if you're excited about the beautifully long weekend we have ahead of us... ah, how I love public holidays. :)

Today's post features a bracelet that I made for my mummy. The name comes from the stone beads that are featured in this bracelet (also previously featured here). As they're known as Rain Flower Stones (雨花石), I thought it'd be fitting. 
 An oriental-inspired bracelet featuring a chinese knot link, pink-green-translucent rain flower stones, white opal and rose opal chinese crystal doughnuts.

Item Code & Name: 389 Flowers in the Rain
Price: RM18.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: White Opal / Rose Opal Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Rain Flower Stones, Chinese Knot Link
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp)

Good night, go forth, and enjoy your mini-holiday, dear readers! :)

Frosted Hearts - Customised

Relatively short post coz it's late! :D

My friend Ai Li is no stranger to this blog, and now makes a reappearance in the pair of earrings that she recently customised. She really liked the pretty crystal doughnuts that I recently featured in this pair of earrings, you see, and wanted me to customise something with them.

Here's Frosted Hearts -

 Chinese crystal doughnuts of the opal/frosted variety - soft and sweet shades of white opal, rose opal and lavender opal, with celtic heart beads. The white opal crystals are almost invisible in the picture above (largely due to my lack of photoshop skillz), so the picture below is against a silver background for clearer viewing.

Item Code & Name: 388 Frosted Hearts
Price: RM8.00
Status: [Sold], Available for remakes
Materials: White Opal / Rose Opal / Lavender Opal Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Celtic Heart Beads

So if you're looking for a demure and sweet pair of earrings, look no further!

Email me at
for orders / enquiries.

Magenta Mine

In a bit of a melancholy mood tonight, so indulge me a little, dear readers.

And I shall preface this with a little "yes, yes, I know that this is an accessories business and not an outlet for the silly author's feelings"... so I shall keep it short. You ever feel just a little bit lost, a bit unmoored in the vast ocean that is life? Yeah... I get struck with that feeling sometimes, and now is one of those times.

So I decided to wallow a little by listening to one of the most bittersweet and wistful Chinese oldies that I know. I had to share it, coz sharing is caring, ya know? Gosh, cry me a river and let me drown in those tears.

Okay, now that I've gotten those feelings out of the way, we're onto the actual point of this post.

Here's a pair of earrings I made for myself, coz today is apparently a me day:

 Magenta flower-painted ceramic beads, with magenta faux pearls. Made to match one of my Bangkok acquisitions. Named Magenta Mine because they're magenta... and they're mine. I'm oozing creativity, I know.
Item Code & Name: 387 Magenta Mine
Price: RM11.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Magenta Flower Ceramic Beads, Magenta Faux Pearls

If you like this, you can order a remake at

Sorry for the rather maudlin post.
I shall go wallow in more sad songs now. :p

Hope Springs

So... my mummy somehow managed to lose the handbag charm that I made for her (here!) (or someone stole it off her handbag, le gasp!), so I made her a new one.

This one features the same Live Love Laugh charm, and some new stones that I found in Bangkok that I am super in love with. Here's Hope Springs:
 Charms and beads that remind me of my mum the most - Hope, an encouragement to always Live well, Laugh often and Love always. Made with love, and featuring my newest Bangkok find - these lovely semi-precious stones that I think are Rain Flower Stones (雨花石). I can't be very sure, since these weren't labelled in the tiny Chatuchak stall that I found them in... but aren't they pretty? Adore the pinkish green blend, and the stones are cool to the touch. 
Item Code & Name: 384 Hope Springs
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Rain Flower Stones, Hope Bead, Made With Love Charm, Live Love Laugh Charm

This is dedicated to all the mummies out there. :)

Tuesday, 14 April 2015


Hi folks!

I'm excited about this post as it's the first to feature beads from Bangkok! So after braving the scorching and sweltering and crawl-out-of-your-skin and douse-yourself-in-icecubes heat of Chatuchak, I found the section and lanes that sold beads! Row after row of semi-precious stones and crystals and beads. *___* Being the fine example of self-control that I am, I limited myself to a few choice purchases. 

Here's the first, named opalline, as it features chinese crystal doughnuts in pretty opal shades. 

 I've not been able to find these shades here -- rose opal and lavender opal chinese crystal doughnuts, coupled with my favourite clover links and cutesy rose charms. Absolutely adoreee the cloudy opal shades of these crystals.
Item Code & Name: 383 Opalline
Price: RM8.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Rose Opal / Lavender Opal Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Clover Links, Rose Charms

If you like these lovely frosted shades, order a remake of this or customise something with them. 
All you gotta do is email me at

Now excuse me while I go stare at my beads for a while. :D Adieu!

Garden Blossoms - Customised

 Happy Thursday!

Sometimes, my customers come up with the best ideas. :) When my well of ideas runs dry, they manage to dream up ideas that look much prettier than what I could've envisioned. :D Crowd-sourcing, yo!

Melanie, who is a necklace enthusiast, really liked the gorgeous magenta flower ceramic bead from this necklace. She wanted it combined with faux pearls, and after a few revisions, we incorporated the lovely Believe ring and this is the result!

Faux pearls in an almost-ombre sequence of sweet pink, dusty pink and maroon, and a ceramic bead with magenta blossoms dangling from a Believe ring.

The antique brass links and chain complement the pink/purple/red tones of this necklace.

Item Code & Name: 381 Garden Blossoms
Price: RM22.00
Status: [Sold], Available for Remakes
Materials: Sweet Pink, Dusty Pink & Maroon Faux Pearls, Believe Ring, Magenta-Flower Ceramic Bead
Measurements: Approximately 43.5cm (including clasp), extender = 5cm

Vintage Summer - Customised


I am back from Bangkok and have shopped up a storm and maaaaan do I miss it. :D Bought some beads too, which will soon be featured in this little blog of mine! But first - here's a little bracelet that Kelsey customised. It's based on this Summer Daze necklace.

Kelsey liked the flower and the pale yellow flower-print pearls, but wanted to replace the gold faux pearls with something a little lighter in colour, something a little more vintage. And thus, Vintage Summer was born:
Pale yellow flower print and pale green faux pearls form the chain of the bracelet, connected with vintage-looking ocean wave links, and an off-white flower cabochon danging from a flower filigree link.
Alas, I've run out of this off-white sunflower cabochon, so remakes will have to feature other flowers.
Item Code & Name: 380 Vintage Summer
Price: RM18.00
Status: [Sold], Available for different remake (the flower cabochon has to be substituted)
Materials: Pale Green and Pale Yellow Watercolour-Print Faux Pearls, Ocean Wave Link, Off-White Sunflower Cabochon, Flower-Shaped Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 17.5cm (including clasp) 
 That's all for now. :)

Spotlight - Bookmarks

This is a scheduled post, as I am currently traipsing around Bangkok, hopefully shopping till I drop and eating till I can't anymore. :D 

This post will focus on bookmarks that I've made in the past - ones that I particularly love. Bookmarks make great presents for most people - they're versatile, don't require that much tailoring to personal taste, and serve a great purpose (unless the person in question doesn't read books, haha).

Here are some bookmarks (click on the names of each to go to their original posts!)
 I Believe (RM22)
 Olive Grove (RM13)
 Nymphaea (RM23)

That's all for now - will be back soon!

Porcelain - Customised


I'm going off on a mini-vacation from tomorrow till Sunday, so gotta rush! This will be a short post. :)

When Jaycee customised the mushroom and macaron handbag charms, she also wanted to put her own spin to this Porcelain bracelet. Here's the customised version:
 Off-white clay beads handpainted with swirls and zigzag patterns, in porcelain blue and jet black ink, and a reminder to be courageous and have hope.
 Gotta love the painstakingly hand-painted swirls and zigzag patterns in these Lun Bawang beads.

Materials: Blue Swirl, Black Swirl and Blue Zigzag Lun Bawang Beads, Clear Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Courage Bead, Heart Bead, Toggle Clasp

I'm travelling, so responses may not be as frequent, yeah? :)
That's all for now, be back early next week!

Monday, 30 March 2015


Oh, Mondays.
Mondays aren't fun days.
But the worst is over and it's 4 more days till the weekend!

You know what else starts with the letter M? Mushrooms and Macarons! Way back when, I posted this Jars of Clay collection, featuring clay beads and charms. Among these beads and charms were the cutest mushroom and macaron charms ever. :)
Jaycee wanted to customise some handbag charms for herself and for her friends, and wanted to include both these charms. Here are the matching accessories. :)
 Swarovski Hearts that dangle from ribbon links, faux pearls, macarons and mushrooms, and a reminder to never, never give up! Amulette is French for "amulet" or "charm". From left to right --> rose, pourpre, rouge (French for pink, purple and red respectively).

Cupid Strikes


Sorry I've been missing in action. I wanted to post yesterday, but was so tired I fell asleep at 9pm. (If that's not a sign of ageing, I don't know what is!). It's been a busy, tiring couple of workdays, so yay TGIF!

Before I go off and enjoy the start of my weekend, here's a pretty necklace customised by Melanie. She liked the circle links and arrow links from the Noir bracelet, and after a few revisions to it, we arrived at this design in sweet rosaline and lilac tones.
A slightly asymmetrical necklace with rosaline faux pearls and chinese crystal doughnuts accompanying circle and arrow links on each side, with a lilac rose cabochon pendant and twin dangling chains.

 Named Cupid Strikes for the little arrow heart links and circle links (almost like Cupid's target). This is possibly one of Dainty Little Trinkets' sweetest creations. :)

Item Code & Name: 374 Cupid Strikes
Price: RM25.00
Status: [Sold], Not Available (unless you don't mind substituting the lilac rose cabochon with a different colour)
Materials: Rosaline Faux Pearls, Rosaline Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Circle Links, Arrow Heart Links, A Lilac Rose Cabochon on a Flower Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 44.5cm (including clasp), extender = 4cm

If you'd like to customise something, all you have to do is email me at to discuss ideas!

They're so pretty I want them alllllll. ❤__❤

Bleeding Love

You cut me open and I
keep bleeding
keep keep bleeding love

Anyone know the song above? It's by Leona Lewis, and kind of morbidly romantic. Or romantically morbid. Or just plain morbid. Haha. In retrospect, it's kinda odd that I named an accessory after this song, especially when the trinket in question is not that morbid after all. Oh well...

Here's a pair of earrings that I made for meself - 

 Blood red chinese crystal doughnuts, metallic silver round-faceted chinese crystals and silver heart links.
Item Code & Name: 371 Bleeding Love
Price: RM7.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Metallic Silver Round-Faceted Chinese Crystals, Heart Links
Come to think of it, it's been quite a while since I last featured a pair of earrings.
Check out more here!
 Here's how you order!

And I shall leave you with the stunning vocal stylings of Leona Lewis... adieu~

Vintage Spring

Good evening, ladyfolk. 

I am suffering from Sunday Night Blues and also a pounding headache, so this post shall be as short as succinct as I can be (i.e. short for me, but still too cheonghei for the regular person) :p

Here's a bookmark that reminds me of springtime...  the kind of spring that you daydream about, a half-faded memory, a certain sense of nostalgia, wistful feelings for a time gone by...
 An antique brass bookmark with flower engravings, accompanied by a clover link, a butterfly link, rosaline and dusty pink faux pearls, and a beautiful rose key charm. I used to have a silver version of this bookmark, which is unfortunately not available anymore. This antique brass version is equally (if not more) beautiful, though. :)
Item Code & Name: 372 Vintage Spring
Price: RM18.00
Status: Available
Materials: Rosaline & Dusty Pink Faux Pearls, Clover Link, Butterfly Link, Rose Key Charm

If you like bookmarks, check out somemore here.
Looks like it's been a week of featuring antique brass trinkets. Click here for more!

Good night, fair folk. 
Don't let the bed bugs bite.

The hills are alive, with the sound of music... ♩ ♫ 

Ah, music. What would we do without it?​ I've been a fan of music and singing (at the top of my lungs, in showers and in cars, everywhere, all the time) since a very young age. Music is such a big part of how we navigate the world and express emotions and relate to one another.

One other person who appreciates music as much as I do, or probably more so, is Shyuan. This is a little bookmark I made for her. :)
 An antique brass bookmark with rich red chinese crystal doughnuts, a Believe ring and a treble clef charm.
Item Code & Name: 370 Melody
Price: RM15.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Believe Ring, Treble Clef Charm

Check out more bookmarks here!

TGIF y'all. Go put on some music and dance into the night!

For Ivy

This is a belated birthday shoutout to Ivy, who celebrated her birthday early this month. :)

Ivy is getting married soon as well, so this birthday gift was made for her with one of the most important events in her life (or more like a journey, since it is a neverending one, hehe) in mind. Love is a many splendoured thing, it is patient, it is kind... all you need is love, love is all you need (this is me quoting all the songs and bible verses that immediately come to mind). 

So this is a birthday gift to Ivy - wishing her lots of love, and joy, and adventures in this momentous year!
An asymmetrical necklace, because Ivy is a fan of the quirky and asymmetrical, with an adjustable Swarovski Heart pendant, adjusted by moving the chain up and down the Believe ring at the centre. 

 A close up of the ever-stunning Swarovski heart in rich red, which is accompanied by a clover link and a deep red chinese crystal doughnut. The Believe ring is one of my more recent finds, and I love it quite a bit. :)

Item Code & Name: 379 Chérie
Price: RM21.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Believe Ring, Deep Red Chinese Crystal Doughnut, Clover Link, Red Swarovski Heart
Measurements: Approximately 44cm (including clasp), drop = 4cm (length adjustable to whatever you want it to be!)

This necklace is made in the same vein as the Eternal Flame, Eternal Winter and Royale necklaces, so check them out by clicking on them names!

All orders/enquiries can be sent to

That's all for now...
AI VEE WHY if you're reading this... love you long time! :p <3
