We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our new bundle of joy!
After spending 41 weeks inside mummy, Nathan Joshua Challenger finally decided to join us on 20 Feb 2009 at 2121 hours weighing a healthy 3.725 kg and measuring 50cm in length.
Thank you for your lovely wishes and prayers and please forgive us if we take a while in responding to emails/messages/comments as we are still in the midst of adjusting to our little miracle baby. Will be back with more stories and pictures soon!
Ah 2 more rose-y creations for the road! I love love love these roses :p Creamy yellow roses and vintage-style brass ribbon charms with lush greenery of smooth phrenite, faceted peridot and green tourmaline briolettes and freshwater pearls. Drops 4cm from goldfilled hooks ~
Another trio of pretties that could jolly well be the last pieces I upload before our little one comes along so enjoy! I hope to be back as soon as we're settled :)
Soft peachy roses with faceted moonstone & blue topaz briolettes, apatite & rose quartz & pink garnet rondelles, frosted sterling drops and swarovski pearls. Parts are wholly goldfilled with a drop of 5.2cm ~
Deep vermillion roses with faceted moonstone & iolite briolettes, labradorite & pink garnet rondelles, frosted sterling drops and swarovski pearls. Parts are wholly goldfilled with a drop of 5.2cm. Very lush indeed!
We have never been the couple to celebrate Valentine's, and even more so now that we are still eagerly awaiting the little one's arrival! (Which reminds me yes, I am now officially 3 days past my due date and the belly is stretched popiah-skin thin but no baby in sight yet! Oh boy. The water retention's a killer.) The hubster took out my favourite warm chocolate lava cake, added a scoop of chocolate ben and jerry's, topped it with delish strawberries and voila! He captured my heart all over again.
We spent the rest of the evening holding hands under the duvet on our loungy chairs and watching the story of why Jane Austen never got married and how Miss Beatrix Potter lost her fiance but found love again eventually. How romantic. And cheesy haha.
I've been trying to tidy up the workroom (I didn't get far - it's hard not to tinkle with beads when you're facing them!) while awaiting the little one's arrival so I was glad to locate more of these swarovski ring charms that I got in Japan! I've used lilac toned swarovski crystal charms with sunny yellow roses and faceted rose quartz briolettes for a soft shy look in Tara ~
A mini series of 2 pink-gold bracelets for the season of romance.... Soft matt and shiny pink-gold-plated chains with pearls and swarovskis for the sweetheart in each of us. Length is approx. 18.5cm and may be altered upon request~
Primavera is a simple stunner with a resin-dipped rose and open heart charm on a pink-gold plated chain with pearls. Length is approx. 17.5cm and may be altered upon request ~
Dainty 15x7mm vintage ribbon charms with smooth 10x8mm rose quartz briolettes topped with clusters of blue-green apatite and flashy grey labradorite rondelles. Drops 2.5 cm from glittery cubic-zirconia goldfilled hooks. Perfect for that girly day out!
