Spotlight - Words

It's only words
and words are all I have
to take your heart away.

--- So boybands through the ages have crooned (though Bee Gees will probably object to being called a boyband, haha).

Hello people! This is the first of the spotlight posts while I am off frolicking in Japan. As you are reading this, I am probably somewhere in Nara, walking around some temple in the cold winter weather, feeding deer (or being chased by deer). Oh deer. Ahahaha I amuse myself so. 

ANYWAY. I've already uttered waaay too many WORDS without getting to the point of this post.

This post is intended to shine a spotlight on accessories featuring little messages - words of joy, words of hope, words of love, as we need all the reminders we can get as we go through the routine that is life.

(Click on the names of each accessory for more descriptions and pictures)
 Freedom (RM15)
Morning Star (RM12)

I'm in Japan, so replies may be very delayed, as I do not have access to wifi most of the time yeah.

Hi hello!

This shall be the shortest of all short posts as I am flying off to Japan (wheeeeeee!) tonight and time is of the essence!

Here's a pair of earrings I made for myself, with celtic knot links that I really reaaaaally love. Brings to mind an ancient, forgone time - hence the name Baroque. My friend Jah says Alhambra comes to her mind when she sees it, but Baroque sounds cooler, so Baroque it is. So much for keeping this post concise. On with the pictures!

 Antique brass celtic knot links with beautiful swirl-patterns, followed by clear chinese crystal bicones. Suitable for days where you just want to wear something versatile and classy with your #ootd . Did I just hashtag something? Yes I did.
Item Code & Name: 353 Baroque
Price: RM10.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Celtic Knot Links, Chinese Crystal Bicones

That's all for now, folks.

If you see something you like, please feel free to email me at

I'm on vacation from 30 Jan - 8 Feb with limited Wifi access, so replies may be delayed, k?

Lots of love, 
see you when I get back,
and in the meantime I've prepared some scheduled posts so you can get your regular dose of inane rambling (assuming anyone actually comes here regularly)!

Jya ittekimasu!

Butterfly Kisses - Customised

Does anyone remember the song Butterfly Kisses?

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Today's post doesn't actually have that much to do with the song, except that they share the same name. :p My friend and colleague Kim asked me to customise a purple butterfly-themed set for our fellow friend and colleague Brenda, so I came up with this bracelet-necklace-earring set, in sweet shades of purple. 
Butterfly kisses - a set in various shades of purple, with butterfly charms and heart links.

Item Code & Name: SET040 Butterfly Kisses (Customised)
Price: RM48.00 (bracelet + earrings + necklace) - items can be sold separately, please look below.
Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes
Materials: Please see below.
 Soft lilac mixed with bright purple faux pearls, deep purple chinese crystal doughnuts, heart links and a butterfly charm dangling from a flower link as the centre piece.

Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes
Materials: Lilac and Bright Purple Faux Pearls, Deep Purple Chinese Crystal Doughnuts, Heart Links, Flower Link, Butterfly Charm

Price: RM8.00 (earrings only)
Status: [Sold 2], Available for remakes

Hogwarts Houses

Has anyone heard the recent adorable story where Tom Felton (of sneaky Slytherin Draco Malfoy fame) recently joined Pottermore? If you don't know what this is, then this post may not make much sense to you. Consider yourself warned. :p

For the uninitiated, Pottermore is an awesome Harry Potter interactive site which contains chapter-by-chapter illustrations and lovely little 'extra' stories from the Harry Potter Universe, written by Queen Rowling herself. One of the first few interactive things you do is get yourself sorted into one of the Hogwarts Houses by answering some questionnaire (a very very basic and probably not scientifically-sound (but who cares) personality test). Tom Felton got sorted into Gryffindor, which is all kinds of hilarious, given that his character loathes Gryffindor with the fire of a thousand suns.

So anyway, I have of course been a member of this site since it first came out, and was quite predictably sorted into Ravenclaw. Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure, yo! Also, I am a total geek. Like that wasn't obvious from the constant geeky tangents that I go off on. :D

Here's a bookmark that I made for myself in representation of my Ravenclaw self... and a charm that I am super excited about!
 An antique brass bookmark with a cobalt blue (Ravenclaw colours yo!) Czech Preciosa bead and the cutest little witch on a broomstick. Reminds me of Hermione, except that she doesn't like flying. I fell in love with this charm at first sight, and of course had to buy it.
Fancy yourself a Gryffindor / Hufflepuff / Slytherin bookmark? I can totally make them in your House colours too!

Item Code & Name: 352 Hogwarts Houses
Price: RM13.00
1. Gryffindor (red faux pearl) - Made to Order
2. Hufflepuff (yellow faux pearl) - Made to Order
3. Slytherin (green Czech Preciosa crystal) - Made to Order
4. Ravenclaw (blue Czech Preciosa crystal) - Available for Remakes
Materials: Faux Pearl / Czech Preciosa Crystal (as detailed above), Witch Charm
 Have I told you that I'll be visiting Harry Potter World soon? That's part of the reason why I'm going to Japan in a week's time. Ahhhhhhh cannot hardly wait. :D

If you're a fellow Harry Potter enthusiast, click here for more things that I've made in homage to my favourite series. 

Till then,
Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus

Lady of the Night - Customised

Short post coz I'm on half day leave for dental treatment and I need to get going soon. Root canal. :(

Some time back, I posted the My Fair Lady bracelet, consisting of a white dahlia cabochon and an array of white beads. This was later customised into a necklace for Felicia, as you can see here. Kelsey wanted something similar, but in a different colour scheme - more like the dark blue and silver shades found in this Sleek in Silver bracelet.

The fair lady has now morphed into the Lady of the Night -
 A royal blur dahlia on a square filigree, with an array of silver, dark silver and midnight blue faux pearls.
 This colour combination is one of my absolute favourites. It's sleek and chic with a dash of colour.

Item Code & Name: 347 Lady of the Night (Customised)
Price: RM22.00
Status: [Sold], Available for Remakes
Materials: Silver, Dark Silver and Midnight Blue Faux Pearls, Royal Blue Dahlia, Square Filigree
Measurements: Approximately 53.5cm (including clasp), Extender = 4cm
If you'd like to order this, I'm just an email away!

Linked Hearts

In 2 week's time, I'll be travelling to Japan! Yay!
Just an advanced vacation notice to my customers that I will be incommunicado from 29 Jan - 7 Feb. :)

For now, I'm still on a roll featuring some Christmas pressies that I gave to me friends.

Here's a pair of earrings I made for Sharon, featuring a new link - the diagonal heart link!

Antique silver-plated diagonal hearts linked with thin silver chains - at first I wanted to call this piece Chained Hearts, but that felt a little too morbid. So Linked Hearts it is.
Item Code & Name: 343 Linked Hearts
Price: RM7.00
Status: Available for remakes
Materials: Diagonal Heart Links
