Memory Lane locket necklace - SGD 125

A curious Victorian gold fill locket from London, it bears the marking for S.K.M. & Co. within a shield on the inside. (This company was in business from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, with their last listing found in 1915 -- worthy of the term antique!)
I've kept it simple with a twist by using a mixture of vintage & new, gold & brassy chains with a trail of hematite and a single tiny vintage crystal drop accent. Necklace measures approx. 18" while the locket pendant is another 1".

Hidden In Time Locket Necklace - SGD 145

Hailing from the 1940s is this charmer of a vintage heart-shaped locket, featuring a quaint foliage motif and spur set with 16 tiny rhinestones. The locket is gold fill and has a lovely pinkish gold tint in some  areas. It is marked for H.F. Barrows and Company, a New England jewellery manufacturer in Attleboro, Massachusetts between the 1850s and 1960s. A very pretty locket indeed!
To add character and complement the rhinestones (some of which have darkened with age), the locket is attached to a 18" long hand-wired chain of hematite rondelles in a gleaming gunmetal grey. The locket is detachable and can be worn simply on a 14k gold fill chain if you so wish. This chain is included and you may indicate your preferred length :)

A Rose in Time - SGD 108 - Sold

A lovely ivory rose is perched atop this gorgeous vintage repurposed foliage brooch. The "leaves" have a striking textured finish and there are glittery rhinestones, amber crystals and faux pearls on the "branches". The centrepiece is accompanied by a earthy colour palette of smoky quartz, hessonite, moonstone, quartz and classic white pearls on an equally pretty textured and slightly chunky but lightweight vintage chain. 

Memory of Stars necklace - SGD 118 - Sold

A tender interpretation of glimmering stars shining in the vast backdrop of a luminous galaxy~
Memory of Stars is a sparkly necklace featuring an old vintage rhinestone brooch pin, romantic pearls, glistening rhinestones, clusters of tiny moonstones and chalcedony and showers of silvery and gilded light streaks. Necklace measures approx. 18" in length.

Stellarium necklace - SGD 98

Glowing blush pink rose quartz nuggets are given an edgy flair with contrasting black matte and silver rhodium chains. Gold stars shine amidst planetary hues of twilight greys and dark silvers. Necklace measures approx. 18" in length. Terrestrially romantic.

I'm back! 
Life has taken some twists and turns the last few months which has meant that this unfortunate blog has had to take a back seat for some time. Hopefully these new pieces signify a renewed momentum and the materials sitting forlornly on my table will get to see the light of day :) 

To summarise the last few months,

I took on a freelance role in a field entirely different from jewellery.
Sarah turned 4.
I survived being the solo chef for Christmas dinner 2014.
Nathan started K2.
Chinese New Year 2015 and all its feasting.
Nathan turned 6.
We had a movie cum sleepover party for Nathan and a few of his close friends.
(And made it out alive!)

How has 2015 been for you so far?

Claddagh earring studs - SGD 49

An unexpected find from a quaint little shop in the little seaside town of Mevagissey, Cornwall is this pair of lovely 9ct gold Claddagh ear studs. The Claddagh is a traditional Irish motif with its origins in the 1700s and features 2 hands clasping a heart, surmounted by a crown. The hands represent friendship, the heart, love and the crown, loyalty. A beautiful symbol indeed! 

The earring studs are genuine 9ct gold but quite lightweight hence the affordable price. Only pair available :)
