Tristan's Isolde - SGD 149 - Sold

I received quite a number of emails about Fairest Star so I thought I would come up with a couple of variations for those of us who adore the mint & orchid combination :)

Tristan's Isolde is a beautiful tale of dreamy colours and romantic details... A vintage starburst brooch set with tiny jeweled rhinestones takes centrestage with a gorgeous unusual milky blue crystal pendant, sweet rose in blush pink and gemstones of green amethyst, pink amethyst, phosphosiderite, chalcedony, peach coral, pale jade accents, freshwater & keishi pearls. 

Fallen Star - SGD 149 - Sold

Another charming piece from what I now consider my "medieval romantic legend-inspired" collection, Fallen Star features yet another vintage rhinestone brooch sculptured with pearls and gemstones. The combination of gleaming shining gems and demure roses makes me go weak in the knees.

From my heart

Can't believe most of the newest pieces have sold already!
Thank you so much for the love and encouragement, I am so humbled and grateful for your unending support all these years. It hasn't been a walk in the park juggling the jewellery with the stay-home-mommy role, which means I haven't been able to update as frequently as I had hoped to. And some days I feel like crap and a failure in both areas. But... you guys are still here! And for that I can't thank you enough. Arigato! Merci Beaucoup! 谢谢!

grateful always,

Earrings measure approx. 5.5cm from 14k gold-filled red garnet studs.

Bordeaux - SGD 75 - Sold

These are some seriously awesome smooth red garnet cabochons set in vintage-style prong settings, along with gemstones of pink topaz, neon blue apatite, amethyst, more red garnet and amethyst.

These pretty vintage rose cameos are set in beautifully aged gold gilt frames and their petite trails of green onyx & rainbow moonstone briolettes make a lovely addition to any vintage-lover's treasure chest.  I was really tempted to keep this for myself! 

Nesting Instincts - SGD 159 - Sold

This was the first necklace in this series that I made and I have such special feelings for it. Just check out that stunning vintage birdie and nest vintage pin! The enameling, the details, the textures... they make me swoon. There is a vintage czech crystal heart and a large sapphire briolette topped with the tiniest pearls. Along the necklace are earthy-hued stones like green amethyst, peach moonstone, amazonite, aventurine and sodalite as well as carved roses made of jade and mother of pearl shell. I know I will miss this darling. Sniff.

Fairest Star - Mine! (for now at least)

My favourite of this series! It seems that minty green and orchid purple is my current colour obsession and this Fairest Star with its vintage starburst rhinestone pin and that brilliant opalite pink crystal pendant really clinches it for me. Pale green amethyst, pink amethyst, moonstone, phosphosiderite, rose quartz, peach coral, pink freshwater pearls and of course beautiful jade. I think I would have sleepless nights if I let it go so forgive me please?

Garden Social - SGD 149 - Sold

A portrait of languid summer lounging with its pale pinks and lazy blues,  I love the surprise of bright coral and wisteria purple roses amidst berry bursts of spring colours.

Other gemstones used include morganite, amazonite, peridot, apatite, pink tourmaline as well as freshwater pearls and mother-of-pearl faceted shell beads.
