Lavender Sage - SGD 79 - Sold

*Only piece!*

I took a mini break from stringing the Oriental necklaces to do something a little different and this lovely floral ensemble was what emerged from the messy dining table that is doubling up as my work desk at the moment.
In a soothing concoction of soft purples, aquas and greys is Lavender Sage with blossoms of smooth amethyst, labradorite, citrine, moonstone, garnet, keishi petal pearls, mossy jade donut and a long aqua chalcedony dew drop briolette. Interspersed on the 18" 14k gold-filled chain are blue lace agate rounds and freshwater pearls in silver and white.

Scarlet Peony - SGD 88 - Sold

While the choice of semiprecious stones differ just that slightly, they include black onyx, lapis lazuli, blue lace agate, aventurine, bloodstone, carnelian, garnet among others. Necklace measures approx. 18" length with lobster clasp closure.

A thoughful gift

BEAUTIFUL vintage pearl & rhinestone earrings all the way from an antiques market in Leiden, thanks to my dear sister L.! There were more goodies in the package but I was immediately drawn to the old world charm of these pearls and swirls.

Sisterly Love

Most of you would know I have refrained from accepting customisations for a while, mainly cos they tend to be more stressful for me and that's not the best thing for me now that I'm expecting. Well I made an exception for a close pal of mine - also Nathan's godma (how to say no right?!) - to do up a bag charm as a bridal shower gift for her sister with this beautiful vintage monogram charm she got from Brooklyn together with some other beads. I just added some chains, tassels, bling and ta-dah! A bag charm of sisterly love.

Saturday, July 03, 2010


Thank you again for your incredible support - most of the necklaces were snapped up so quickly! I never cease to be amazed at how blessed I am to have such wonderful supportive appreciation. Thank you so very very much! I have on a necklace roll lately and still have more works in progress which could not make the uploads today. Also I received new batches of gorgeous gems this week which I'm dying to get started on. Could it be the pre-pop dash of creativity?

And now for some family news...

Please say hi to our Sarah Emma!

Oh yes you read right! While I blogged here that Nathan was gonna have a little brother come early November, we found out at my detailed scan that the wee little one in my oven was gonna be a princess! We were punk'ed! It was such a HUGE surprise but we are thrilled nonetheless to have a baby girl after experiencing the hyperactivity of active little boys. The grandmothers are already very very very excited to have their 1st granddaughter (on both sides) on the way and have been happily adding pink frocks to their shopping list.

I'm 22 weeks along now and can't wait till Sarah comes to join the brood! Perhaps it was a good idea I did not share the name of Nathan's supposed little "brother" earlier? Our gynae was 90% certain it was a boy but I guess he got punk'ed by the cheeky princess too! Let's just hope there won't be any more surprises! :)

Have a lovely rainy snuggly weekend x
